Juan Cole tells us Bush has a great deal to do with Russia even thinking it could pull this off without retribution:
The run-up to the current chaos in the Caucasus should look quite familiar: Russia acted unilaterally rather than going through the U.N. Security Council. It used massive force against a small, weak adversary. It called for regime change in a country that had defied Moscow. It championed a separatist movement as a way of asserting dominance in a region it coveted.

In case you wanted to know more about the news of Russia going to war with Georgia, Tim’s place is where to go. Nobody else in Ohio is able to talk with as much experience and authority as he. Some very good insights. This is the latest:

McCain: There are numerous threats to security in Iraq and the future of Iraq. Do you still view Al Qaeda in Iraq as a major threat?
Petraeus: It is still a major threat, though it is […]Full Story... →
