Ossetia War Update: Surprise! Russia Not Quite Done Yet

Ceasefire? What ceasefire?

A column of 70 Russian military vehicles, including military trucks with anti-aircraft guns and artillery, as well as armoured personnel carriers, pursued by a large contingent of the world’s media, left Gori on the road to Tbilisi and turned left a few kilometres outside of the frontline Georgian town.Russian troops claimed they were on a “humanitarian mission”, however, the true purpose of the mission remained unclear as reports of burning and looting in villages near Gori by South Ossetian rebels and Russian army personnel emerged.

Russia is creating a demilitarized zone around South Ossetia.
