Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps an emblematic case was the Russian "attack" on the Kitty Hawk in November 2001 during manouvers in the Korean Sea. The Russian migs broke through the US defenses twice and were gone before the US forces caught on.

Russians and Americans have been having cat fights for decades, up to 280 a year, under-reported "incidents at sea." They're heavy sparing partners- and quite often the Russians get the best. A war with Russia would be a total disaster for the world.

As for the Georgia campaign, the Russian attack was a classic low-level operation. Perhaps one of the more interesting aspects of their campaign was the lack of precision bombing. The Russians are deliberately using non-surgical weaponry as an admonition. And if their nuclear warheads are just as imprecise?
