Here’s a quote from the BBC this morning,
Arriving on the border on Saturday, Vladimir Putin declared it was unlikely now that South Ossetia would reintegrate with the rest of Georgia.
This is precisely the outcome Georgia was trying to avoid.
Does anyone reeeeally think that South Ossetia is going to reintegrate with Georgia after all of this? Or is the BBC banking on most of its readers being utter morons?
I have more on the Russia-Georgia conflict, and am hoping to publish accounts from Georgians as well. Please let me know if you want to contribute.
