If Putin plans a measured response what exactly does that mean?

As many of my fellow members know this is not a forum I normally visit, yet reading a StevenQualyle thread this morning I discovered this piece and am very concerned about the wordage.

Are we heading towards WWIII? Will it be with Russia over the Black Sea and NATO?

Could someone please explain this to me? And just how serious is this situation to become, as I do not see US and NATO leaving do to this threat or promise.

I thank you in advance.

NATO continues to build up naval presence in Black Sea

Russian warships arrive in Abkhazia

This is going to get very nasty I think.

We don't understand what American ships are doing on the Georgian shores, but this is a question of taste, it's a decision by our American colleagues," agencies reported Putin as saying.

"The second question is why the humanitarian aid is being delivered on naval vessels armed with the newest rocket systems."

Earlier Tuesday Russian officials criticized the European Union for threatening to postpone talks on a new political and economic partnership deal.
