    I'm getting sick of reading anything that has to do with international news in the New York Times. Every article about the Russian/Georgian conflicts quotes officials who are kept secret because of diplomatic protocol.

    Attributions should be changed to
    Some douchebag in a tweed coat smoking a pipe (remaining anonymous according to diplomatic protocol because our rag is a pawn of any presidential administration and refuses to hold anyone accountable for what they say) said that the situation in (insert Iraq/China/Darfur/Zimbabwe/Afgahnistan/Georgia/anywhere in the world) is unacceptable.
