Meanwhile, a cease fire may be in the works as Georgians bury their dead

A sign posted in the breakaway province of Ossetia provides further documentation of the claim Russia has been fomenting trouble in Georgia. It proclaims "Putin is our President!"

The Georgian National Anthem



Our icon is the homeland
Trust in God is our creed,
Enlightened land of plains and mounts,
Blessed by God and holy heaven.

The freedom path we've learnt to follow
Makes our future spirits stronger,
The morning star will rise above us
And lighten up the land between the two seas.

Glory to long-cherished freedom,
Glory liberty!

Need more proof that Obama and his supporters are a bit too full of themselves? Here's the statement of Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, a hopeful in the Obama veepstakes:

"It was a bad crisis for the world. It required tough words but also a smart approach to call on the international community to step in. And I’m very, very happy that the Senator’s request for a ceasefire has been complied with by President Medvedev." -- Tim Kaine, August 12, 2008
