Russian forces blocked access to the city’s naval and commercial ports this morning and towed the missile boat Dioskuria, seen as the flagship of the Georgian navy, out of sight of observers. A loud explosion was heard minutes later.

Several hours later, an Associated Press photographer saw Russian trucks and armored personnel carriers leaving the port with about 20 blindfolded and handcuffed men riding on them. A port spokesman said that the men were Georgian soldiers.

The Russians also took with them four Humvees that were at the port awaiting shipment back to the United States, equipment that had been used in earlier US-Georgian military exercises.

Russia is out of control. They obviously intend to make Georgia a puppet state. Putin is brilliant. His timing and planning were perfect.
An idiot US President with no moral authority, a war weary populus...
And who do we have next. A talker or a war-monger. So either a reformed Soviet Union or WWIII. Great choices.
