The Financial Times is at least one of, and possibly the most, reliable newspaper on the planet. It cannot afford to be otherwise. Its reputation hangs on its objective analysis of world affairs. Leaders of Industry rely on it for information. So it's worth reading this article on the Georgia situation.

Superannuated cold warriors and neo-conservatives are salivating over the notion of a new cold war with Russia. If I were much more cynical than I am, I would guess that someone advised Mikheil Saakashvili, the Georgian president, to attack the separatist enclaves for precisely this reason. I might even imagine that this was also seen as a way to put John McCain in the White House. But I must not imagine such things, must I?
