NOTE:  Russian forces have crossed the border from South Ossetia and invaded Georgia, seeking to conquer the city of Gori and “cut Georgia in half.” The New York Times reports: “The advance appeared to answer the question on which the conflict had been pivoting: Would Russia simply occupy the two separatist territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, or would it push into Georgia, raising the possibility of a full-scale invasion?”  As we report below, Russia has also bombed the outskirts of Tbilisi, the Georgian capital.  Vladimir Socor of the Jamestown Foundation explains how Russia provoked this conflict and what it hopes to gain from it.
