War looms in the Caucasus

Russia and Georgia it seems are on the brink of war this morning. Over the past few days tensions have been increasing between the two states over the arrest if Russian military officers on charges of spying by Georgia. Troops movements by Russia have started along the border and yesterday they pulled 84 Diplomats out of the country. The latter is never a good sign really.

Hmm, Georgia is fairly friendly with its Uncle Sam, and although I can't imagine the 101st Airborne will be turning up in Tblisi any time soon, I don't think the Seppos would be too happy about the Russians invading.

This would never have happened without the US being bogged down in Iraq. Now the US looks weak, Russia feels ready to reclaim a few of her previous satellites.

With Pakistan being found to be behind the train bombings in Mumbai you wonder how long peace can last across this troubled world.
