This past August saw military incursions in the Caucasus that have changed what and how the world thinks of Russia, Georgia, and of Nato. Different groups feel differently about the area and people most influenced by these events. There is disagreement about when to start the clock in discussing the background. This discussion will cover the history of happened, how those in the region were involved, how it was portrayed by the media, and what actually happened on the ground. We will try to understand what each side thinks and how they have interpreted those events.
