Russia looks poised to redraw the map

NYT reports: "As Russia moved in more forces and continued aerial bombing, it appeared determined to occupy the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia."

Some international bloggers-- their reactions surveyed by Onnik Krikorian of Global Voices -- have speculated on dire consequences for the Caucasus region.

I will say this: examining the history, it is apparent that conflict in South Ossetia is hardly unprecedented.
