" agree that Russia is politically isolated at the moment. However, Putin's charge that there were elements in the White House that encouraged Saakashvili to attack Tskhinvali cannot be dismissed out of hand."

Its worse than u think:

New Islamic Terror Threat Post Georgia Russia conflict Predicted for Armenia in Nagorno-Karabach , and/or for ethnic Russians in Abkhazia and North or South Ossetian districts.

"So far as respecting the territorial integrity of other countries, the U.S. led invasion of Iraq without UNSC sanction also set an unfortunate precedent."

An unfortunate precedent indeed. But where can we go from here in our Russian relations? I suppose before we can move forward, we would need to consider cleaning up some of our own failed moves to be able to approach Medvedev with any credence.

  • Welcome to "Other Points of View" on Russia. We believe there is need in the public forum for a venue which offers opinions and facts that at times may differ from the prevailing view in western media.

    Our point of view is not political, is not theoretical, and is not academic. It comes from decades of working at the grassroots of Soviet and post-Soviet society and being avid watchers of Russian politics, economics, history, societal conditioning and current mindsets. Please review our history in order to better understand our perspective on Russia today.

    This blog has a companion program, the Russia Media Watch (RMW), which analyzes select pieces of western media for accuracy or inaccuracy of content based on 17 objective criteria. Analyses are then sent to the journalist, the publication and to a wide list of American Congress members, think tanks, business and civic leaders throughout the country.
