Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The English are still stuck in the Great Game. As a French commander remarked after the charge of the light brigade in the Crimea war, "It's magnificent but it's not war. It's madness."

It's still applies- perhaps because they see in Saakasvili an incompetent fool just like the commanders of the light brigade were.
