Now That's Journalism

A Georgian reporter was shot and slightly wounded by a sniper during the recent Russian kerfuffle.  Her reaction is spectacular: she just keeps reporting.

"Kerfuffle" is a bit of an understatement, no?

Does anyone actually think the Russians are going to "pull out" just because the rest of the world told them to?

According to BBC reporters on the ground, Russian troops have continued to fortify positions within Georgia, well outside South Ossetia and Abkhazia. There are reports they are scuttling Georgian vessels in the Black Sea ports and mining airstrips, and continuing to move troops toward Tbilisi. This ceasefire is a farce, and Georgia may already be lost.
