Score another victory for the simplisme Bush team. Russia and Georgia are making conciliatory moves. This wouldn't have happened with US intervention when Russia asked to be allowed to make strikes in Georgia in return for a positive vote in the UN Security Council (You mean Russia would act in its own self interest in making such a vote? Stupid UN-iks).
``Everything we have done was aimed against bandits hiding in Georgia, never against Georgia itself,'' Putin told Shevardnadze in Moldova ahead of a presidential summit.
``I entirely agree with you that we must put an end to terrorism,'' Shevardnadze responded, adding that he expected he and Putin would achieve a ``breakthrough'' in relations over the next day.
