Again, I can't stop thinking of that Georgian cab driver here in Moscow, who told me back in March that "he'd do anything to keep [Abkhazia] as part of Georgia, even if it meant he'd have to elect Vladimir Zhirinovsky as Georgia's president for a whole year!"

I wonder what he has to say about it all now.

And I keep thinking of South Ossetia's president Eduard Kokoity - a 43-year-old former wrestling champion and Komsomol leader, who, just like his more lawyerly superiors, seems to favor a rather loose definition of the term 'genocide.'

Below is a video of Kokoity drinking three liters of red wine in front of the cheering crowd in Tskhinvali yesterday:
