Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But it's hard to escape the notion that Georgia is keen on (i) fighting with Russia, and (ii) dragging the West in that confrontation with Russia;

We have a deal with South Ossetia on how we will deal with crisis situations.

Oh, great.  I confess my grasp of European history is not what it should be, but isn't this more or less how WWI got started?  A relatively small territorial dispute pulled in other powers through a web of "security arrangements," creating an ever-wider conflict?  I do not have a good feeling about where this is going.

We all bleed the same color.
