Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says he hopes Georgia’s Western partners take note of what has happened in South Ossetia and draw conclusions.
“It all confirms our numerous warnings addressed to the international community that it is necessary to pay attention to massive arms purchasing by Georgia during several years. Now we see how these arms and Georgian special troops who had been trained by foreign specialists are used,” he said.
Meanwhile, a Russian effort at the UN to get both sides to renounce violence has failed to win backing at the Security Council.
The Security Council rejected a Russia-drafted resolution calling on Georgia and South Ossetia to immediately put down their weapons. The US, Britain and some other members backed the Georgians in rejecting a phrase in the three-sentence statement that would have required both sides "to renounce the use of force."

So really interested in knowing your stand on the Indo Us nuke deal!!

really i am not in favour of the nuke deal , I fear that the american imperialists may potentially take control of India's foreign policy thanks to indo-US deal ...
but Manmohan is a very good economist thats what makes me respect him
but I hope that our nation does not start bending to US whims and fancies
