Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm finding this Civil Georgia page useful.  It's funded by USAID and the Swiss Government, so caveat emptor, but it's definitely a peek into what the Georgians are trying to sell.

Apparently Saakashvili tried to claim that a Russian airstrike hit the BTC pipeline.

The Georgians are doing their damndest to sell this Russia as a threat to global oil supplies meme.

Over on Daily Kos, a large group of people have bought into this, and the idea that Europe will "freeze" because the Russians are going to use their "energy weapon."  And they are all puzzled why European states haven't taken a tougher line against Russia.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
