Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
isn't it the Russians who are asking both sides to renounce the use of violence? Then why are only they being asked to stop?

Welcome to the wonderfully surreal world of Western (eh, you know what I mean) journalism and politics!

I particularly enjoy the WSJ headline, "Russian Conflict Escalates: Russia and pro-U.S. ally Georgia were on the brink of war, with Russian troops and tanks moving into Georgia's breakaway province of South Ossetia."    

I hope that much spinning makes them sick to their stomachs...
