Well having been on a trip to visit Tbilisi for a work trip during the first week of July, it became a real shock to me to see the turmoil that engulfed the Country!

This happened about 3-4 weeks after we returned from Georgia (on the 7th August) - so definitely peace of mind that we weren't there with all of that fighting! I just hope the people we met weren't suffering that much!

It all seemed to start with an increase level of tension between Georgia and the infamous break-away region of South Ossetia. But I wasn't expected a full out conflict to erupt. I must say that I do blame Georgia for causing the start of the conflict, after all it was the aggressor, but it was just an unfortunate start of events that simply spiralled out of control - against Georgia!

Russia - who had a peace-keeping force in South Ossetia - simply reacted in response to the surprise onslaught by the Georgian military. The answer in most of this is tit-for-tat military action, so Russia simply responded with their military might. This was simply a no-brainer, Georgia would lose such a conflict - and ultimately, the Georgian military had to retreat. After days of conflict, this retreat went from South Ossetia to the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, so much so, the Russian military was at the leisure in control of significant portions of the country! What a mess this was ...

Not sure why the UN or NATO didn't intervene as quickly as they should, my hat goes off to the French who had to mediate a truce between the two parties.

Here's hoping for a peaceful resolution - but what will the picture be of this post-conflict resolution. Would there be a significant change in attitudes between the two parties, and can they ever trust each other again - I hope so!
