Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are so many Russia-Georgia diaries, I don't know where to put this, but want to share it:

"U.S. Really Surprised by Georgia-Russia Conflict?"


This is a superb sort of "US-Russia relations in the last 8 years 101".  Probably you already know this stuff, but if you are sick of exlplaining why Russia's doing what it's doing to your friends and family and hordes of kossacks (ironic name, no?), here's a handly link for you!
