Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the U.S. does not have the option to step in. Russia can probably overrun Georgia in a matter of days, if it chooses. The U.S. can only get there by air, or through north-east Turkey. Turkey could probably get its military in quickly, but I don't see them doing that.

The media imagery will also depend on Russia's actions. I hope they constrain themselves to South Ossetia.
