  1. @Ed: how is that Russia’s government “sucks”, if:

    1) they fulfilled their peacekeeping mandate as guarantor of peace according to agreements between Georgia and South-Ossetia — and did not ran away like it did Dutch peacekeeping troops in Bosnia in 1995, causing Srebrenitsa bloodbath;

    2) they were able to protect its citizens;

    3) they had the quickest and the most effective enforcing the peace operation in decades — unlike NATO operations, which lasted for weeks or months, nearly totally destroying countries in Europe.

    4) stopping Mr.Bush’s armed and trained “private Hussein” Saakashvili from erasing territory 50 times less than Georgia in population.

    5) they did **legal** operation, unlike most of NATO operations, and they did not “invade” Georgia since peacekeeping mandate is obligatory to fulfil in case of one side starts aggression. Georgia agree back in time that Russia is guarantor of peace and whoever starts aggression will be forced to peace. Russia’s troops had legal right to be on Georgia’s territory since then. You can not “invade” to place where you already legally are.
