Georgia declares state of war with Russia
BBC News
From inishglora:
Here's a snippet from the English-language version of Pravda regarding the conflict:

"Russian officials believe that it was the USA that orchestrated the current conflict. The chairman of the State Duma Committee for Security, Vladimir Vasilyev, believes that the current conflict is South Ossetia is very reminiscent to the wars in Iraq and Kosovo. In the meantime, it became known that the Georgian troops conducted volley-fire cleansings of several South Ossetian settlements, where people’s houses were simply leveled.

Here's what Michael Rivero, webmaster of has to say about the interesting timing:

Webmaster's Commentary: "The agenda here on the part of the US appears to be to get Russia mired in a military confrontation with Georgia. This would critically impact Russia's ability to come to Iran's aid, should the US and/or Israel be planning some kind of an attack. We now have two carrier groups, headed to the Gulf. Coincidence?!? Probably not."
