I feel sorry for Georgia, they've got an idiot leader who thought starting a war with Russia would be a good idea and now they have to borrow IMF loans to rebuild their country. It's a real pity their leaders didn't realise they where just pawns in a much bigger game.
The real surprise for me has been the vitriol of the British (both political and media) in condemning Russia - lots of talk suggesting "we" should not stand for it etc etc. I'm used to rank hypocrisy from the western media but this time it really took the biscuit especially when Russia recognised South Ossetia. It really didn't take long for the Kosovan cat to create mayhem.
