A Cease Fire with Exception

After reading several articles, it seems Russian President Medvedev has called for a ceasefire, however, if there are any enemies in South Ossetia, the Russian army has a right to shoot them, apparently. I'm sure the other Remont writers feel the same, when I say, I hope this comes to a speedy resolution and that the violence really does cease.

I must also say, there have been a lot of articles pointing blame at different actors, which is natural, but at the end of the day, everyone had a part in creating this catastrophe.

1. Saakashvili, what have you been thinking each step of this conflict? And if you learn only one thing from this disaster, learn that you cannot surround yourself with "yes men". I find it unbelievable that not one person stood up and said, "Mr. President, this is a bad idea, here's why..."

2. Russia, you won, we got...we got it several days ago. Why the continued pressure? What are you driving at?

3. The international community...protect your investments and before that, invest wisely.

If that's true, then I shall from now on refer to Saakashvili as Saakashbashy.

Dust off the Rukhana kids - those gold chains to protect the throat from attacks by knives are coming in useful, eh?
