Georgia Declares State of War

Things are getting worse.

A view from Jerome a Paris.

Full scale war:

Russian jets have bombed a Georgian town amid a deepening crisis over the breakaway South Ossetia region.
Georgia says 60 people died in Gori when the bombs hit residential buildings as well as military targets.

Russian officials say hundreds of civilians have been killed in South Ossetia. Georgia denies the figure, which cannot be independently verified.

Reports say Russian PM Vladimir Putin has stopped in Russia's North Ossetia region on his return from the Olympics.

Much more here.


And The Other Russia, a pro-democracy blog (that I've only now just come across).
