Plucky little Georgia? No, the cold war reading won't wash (Mark Almond in The Guardian)

It is crudely simplistic to cast Russia as the sole villain in the clashes over South Ossetia. The west would be wise to stay out

Plucky little Georgia? No, the cold war reading won’t wash (Mark Almond in The Guardian)

Opmerking Mee eens. Hoorde gisteren op BBC’s Newshour de Russische minister van BUZA verklaren dat in 2006 een afspraak is gemaakt met de regering van Georgia dat RU haar troepen uit Georgie zou terugtrekken en dat Georgia beloofde nimmer vreemde troepen op haar grondgebied toe te laten.
