Russia and Georgia: Why should we be paying attention?
In early August it almost seemed like time had moved backwards when we saw the pictures of the Russian soldiers moving into South Ossetia. But Russia wasn’t invading, instead they claim they were protecting a breakaway region of the Republic of Georgia. The Georgians, allies of the U.S., have a different view of the situation. So what is going on over there, and why should we care over here? Join us on Thursday when we take a look at the ongoing conflict between Russian and Georgia and find out why we should be paying attention.
