Georgian deputy Defence Minister Kutelia admits attacking Russia

Tbilisi admits misjudging Russia, Financial Times 21 aug 2008

Georgia did not believe Russia would respond to its offensive in South Ossetia and was completely unprepared for the counter-attack, the deputy defence minister has admitted...
“I didn’t think it likely that a member of the UN Security Council and the OSCE would react like this,” Mr Kutelia said.

This may also be a clue to why the "power-elite" are created this conflict, distract the Western ppl away from the "stabilization of China" (read: do away with opposition of the current regime)
In the US, leading neo-conservative thinkers see China as their primary contradiction. Yet they also support Israel with a passion, without realising this stance is a geopolitical gift to China. It guarantees the US faces a hostile Islamic universe, distracting it from focusing on China. There is no doubt China was the bigger winner of 9/11. It has stabilised its neighbourhood, while the US has been distracted. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/c65798bc-6ec6-11dd-a80a-0000779fd18c.html?nclick_check=1
