Russia and Georgia move to brink of war

Russia and Georgia edged dangerously close to direct conflict today after Tbilisi launched an overnight offensive to regain control over the breakaway province of South Ossetia.

Fighting raged around the city of Tskhinvali, the South Ossetian capital, as Georgian troops backed by tanks and warplanes pounded separatist forces. At least 15 people were reported to have been killed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has been reported to this website that Israel has been caught supplying weapons and supplies to Georgia, and that this in part prompted Russia's emergency meeting of the UN Security Council last night.
