    Actually i must hold my hands up and admit i was a bit hard on Russia,afterall we in the UK are far from perfect.

    And all this talk of NATO v Russia.No thats wrong, Russia should be embraced into the arms of Europe and respect runs both ways.

    As for Putin,well he loves Siberian Tigers and wants to ensure their survival,thats good enough for me,afterall if the Americans mess up they could have someone who wants to shoot all the great animals!!

    Russia i love you,you have great bears and tigers,in the UK we only have Badgers and foxes,oh and the Scottish Wildcat!!

              Early in the morning of 8 August, Georgia launched a military offensive, codenamed Operation Clear Field to capture Tskhinvali. The Georgian 4th Brigade spearheaded the infantry attack, while the 2nd and 3rd Brigades provided support.Georgian forces soon seized several strategic South Ossetian controlled villages located on higher ground around the city. After securing the heights around Tskhinvali, Georgian Special Forces of the Interior Ministry, supported by Sukhoi Su-25 aircraft, artillery, tanks, and Otokar Cobra armored vehicles, moved into the city. South Ossetian sources claimed that a Georgian tank attack on the suburbs of the city was repelled by South Ossetian militia at 3:46 AM.
