Georgia: how much is the west to blame?
How much is the west, and specifically the US, to blame for the war between Russian and Georgia?

Quite a lot, according to some commentators, who happen to be American. Steve Clemons at Washington Note sees a "high quotient of American vulnerability"
Read the comment threads as well, there are a lot of good points there as well from people all over. Gotta love The Guardian!

I hope the U.S. never made any promises to come to Georgia's rescue should they choose to ignite conflict with Russia. We have done dumber things under this (and the last) administration.

Over the past 8 years, you would have to be insane to believe that the US government could actually manage to do anything with the barest minimum level of competence. The Georgian president was a fool to count on Bush et al. Hasn't he heard about the long string of failed American promises?
