Here's a witty, entertaining and astute commentary by military-blogger 'War Nerd' on the now concluding Caucasus War. In contrast to our reader 'tranquil', I for one am glad the Russians gave a tooth-breaking response to the Georgian aggression. This is what we should have done when Pak stabbed us in the back in Kargil. Pakistan isn't quite the tiny Mouse-That-Roared country like Georgia is, though - it's more like a somewhat larger, rabid pit bull. Maybe the day will come where we can give them a similar comeuppance. Anyhow, this latest event shows that Russia is certainly back as a Great Power, and is not to be trifled with.
