    Our local news radio station reported that Russian TV and radio has broadcast that it is a "war".

    I was just watching some of it on the news. I would not call it a war yet but it is getting pretty bad. As per the news (not sure what the truth is yet), 4 Russian aircraft have been shot down.

    I am wondering what is going to happen to our troops. I can say for a fact that we have troops in Georgia at this very moment. Them being there has nothing to do with this, and I think we will pull them out.

    This one has been brewing for a while. Not sure if anyone knows where it will stop but right now it is local but not limited. Not sure where the Russians are going, nobody seems to know their objectives.

    Give it another week. As long as it stays local (between the Russians and the Georgians), it should be ok. If it gets beyond that, it could be trouble.

    Keep an eye on the price of oil. It if keeps falling (down $5 to 115bbl), then this is no biggie. But if it starts coming back, then somebody is either knows something or the markets are getting spooked.

    It has been over 20 yrs since my Russian history classes. If I remember right Stalin was from Georgia. The Russians and Georgians have never played nice. I do not remember why. It may be another case of they always fight each other. Does anyone know the reason this time?

    its not a big deal, 3° world war wasnt start that time.

    some of the south ossetians will come back with russians to the another side of border, instead the georgia will recover the control of the region.
