Just a couple of coincidences. To the Chinese, the number 8 means prosperous. The Olympics began on that date, and based on the number of records being broken, the Chinese should be commended. Incidentally, American viewership is up….way up…..

Coming from an American official, the invasion of Ossetia being timed on that same day, 888, was no coincidence…..

That invasion and its Russian reply, has recently convinced Poland to secure those controversial missiles from the United States. Today Poles marched in the street to celebrate the anniversary of a rare victory over the Russians…..That battle happened exactly 88 years ago.……..
