#5 Since when is a BBC news crew in a war zone considered "civilian"? They're a belligerent with interests and will attempt to influence the outcome of the conflict with their slanted reporting.

#6 This is from Gori, yesterday, during Saakashvili's tour - capture from a video clip.

The look of terror on his face was shocking. Quite understandable, he is human like the rest of us, but it is not something people like to see in their leaders. It will hurt him politically I suspect.

#7 Is it terror or just tired and weary?

#8 Fear. The BBC ran the video clip for a while.
Not something you should see in a wartime leader.

#9 Well, if you can't get rid of him by poison, might as well invade the whole country.

#11 Cajones the Israelis don't have in dealing with the BBC! They are as neutral as "Der Sturmer"!
