Russia's war aims become clearer
Russian forces appear to have cleared most Georgian troops out of South Ossetia and have liberated the capital, Tskhinvali.

Moscow's war aims have now been announced as forcing "the Georgian side to peace". That's a nice broad aim and as part of it the Russians have admitted that they are now attacking areas within Georgia proper, and outside S. Ossetia. The Georgian city of Gori has suffered air attacks, as it was the main base for the Georgian attack on S. Ossetia, and Russian ground troops seem to be pushing towards it.

Hopefully Russia will soon be able to issue her terms for an armistice and that, we trust, will be the end of that.
