Still Trying to Take Vienna

I remain puzzled about Russia's failure to take Tbilisi in last August's brief war. The capital was open and the Russians faltered.

The Russians appear to still want Tbilisi. The question is, do they rely on increasingly aggressive protesters to effect regime change or just send in the tanks?

This isn't the first prediction of Russia's intentions toward Georgia.

I wonder if the Georgians are seriously getting ready for round two. They really can't count on being as lucky as they were last year in another war.
