One would think that whatever slim hope Georgia had for NATO membership would now be completely lost. A prospective NATO member that attacks Russia AND is on the verge of a civil war. Not exactly the worlds most brilliant publicity campaign.

On the other hand "failing upwards" was the credo of the Bush regime, so I guess he might just be following the script his mentors gave him.
