Russia vs. Georgia: Knight takes Pawn

As Bill Hicks so astutely observed; 'All governments are liars and murderers'. That being the case, we should generally try to resist the instinct to pick sides in complicated foreign wars as if we were watching a game of football, especially when we often know very little about who's doing what to whom and the media we rely upon for information are biased, twisted and barely more informed than we are. Most likely it will not be good vs. evil, but evil vs. evil, black hats on either side and civilians in the middle getting royally fucked.
