FROM THIS EPISODE

Russia claims it's pulling out of Georgia, but its troops and tanks remain near the capital city of Tiblisi. Sounding conciliatory in his latest televised speech, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili called for negotiations to prevent "the definitive estrangement of our two countries." It was his attack on the rebellious province of South Ossettia that provoked Russia’s overwhelming response.  We hear from the scene, speak with two historians, and debate whether, after invading Iraq, the US is using a double standard when it condemns Russia’s action across its own, international border.
