Russia's aggressive proxy war on the West in Georgia

Russian jets have bombed targets in the Georgian town of Gori, about 25km (15 miles) from the intense fighting in South Ossetia. Here the BBC's Richard Galpin describes chaotic scenes in Gori on Saturday.

There are reports and confirmed eyewitness videos from Georgian, Russian and independent sides that several Georgian military bases were bombed by Russian aircraft and a port in the south of the country, on the Black Sea coast a long way from here.

Clearly the Russians are choosing a lot of targets around the country. And they claim to want to restore peace by bombing military and civilian targets all over Georgia?

I do not know who Russia wants to fool but bombing parts of a country far from the conflict region is an act of war, violation of national sovereignty and an act of genocide.
