Hosted by

Russia has sent troops and tanks into a breakaway region of Georgia, a former member of the Soviet Union. Interviewed on CNN, Georgia's President Mikheil Saakashvili declared, "We are freedom-loving nation that is right now under attack. This is really way too much. And if this thing is – if they get away with this in Georgia – the world will be in trouble." Fred Weir is correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor in Moscow.
