The ceasefire deal was signed by the Georgian President on Friday — although Russia’s Foreign Minister says there are slight differences between the two versions.

Obama & McCain about Georgian conflict

The U.S. presidential candidates have been weighing in with their opinion of the conflict in Georgia. While Barack Obama and John McCain disagree on almost everything else, they seem to have found common ground in the Caucasus. But the U.S. electorate is not universally convinced.

  3. On moday, Aug 17th, “I’ll give you 10 to 1 that they never pull out.” As of now, rather than pulling out, they have set up a “security buffer zone” manned only by Russian troops that covers half of Georgia. I really hate it when I am always right

  10. “Russia’s Foreign Minister says there are slight differences between the two versions” The version the Russians signed means Georgia becomes a Russian controlled Soviet bloc nation again. Russia says it will pull out on monday. I’ll give you 10 to 1 that they never pull out. But I do like how some of your other posts blame this on the United States and on oil. God bless the communist that always backs fellow communists
