Four days ago, in response to comments by John McCain regarding Russia and Communist China, I wrote this:
Russia has also received criticism regarding its interference in Georgia and its
occupation of Chechnya. The criticism in the former is undoubtedly deserved, but
Georgia is still its own country . . .

Well, Georgia is still its own country, but my implied statement (that Russia was not occupying Georgia) evaporated this morning (National Review Online - The Corner). I still think McCain was far too optimistic on Communist China, but I'm willing to move a lot closer to his skepticism on Putinist Russia now.
