    Georgia war was scripted by White House and received political support from the higher level , there were number of hot heads in US and Condi was leading them all but US realised that they couldnt support Saakashvili and they might end up something into bigger US-Russia conflict so it backed out.

    Even US Congress research and other independent media admitted that Georgia was the first to attack Ossetia and took a blood nose.

    Europe at political level was more moderate and played a constructive role in the conflict , The Western media on the whole was one sided favoring Saakashvili

    The most memorable moments of the war was Saakashvili biting his Tie :rofl:

    The public supported the Russians and the war was won even before it started.....

    It was a great blunder by the USA.....

    It might have escalated to a conflict between the US and Russia, but got simer in time.....
