Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Look!  See?  Russia's invaded Georgian territory and started a war against us!  Isn't this exactly what Nato is meant to protect against?  Now you have to let us in ..."

It is a bit messy.  I've read Georgia is withdrawing 1000 troops from Iraq to send them to S Ossetia.  US can't be thrilled about that.  And I cannot for the life of me see what the US has to gain by getting involved in a war against Russia.  Sadly, I didn't see what we had to gain by invading Iraq either.  Sigh...
