Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There has been a lot of neo-con evil empire guff in the US - with virtually no mention of the fact that Georgia initiated the conflict;.  This is hardly surprising as Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili is a signed up member of the neo-con cabal.

That "Old Europe" should take a different view is also hardly surprising.  Russia is an increasingly important trading partner and no one wants a return to Cold War politics.

This is about US domestic politics and giving McCain the edge on Obama.  The facts of what actually happened are almost irrelevant.

It's time I got out of this game....
