    after disavowing it.  I also wouldn't trust anything Saakshvili says, and there's a bit of hindsight justification in his argument.  Bush might have done these things (send which fleets from where to where?), but that's not an argument it directed Putin to come to the table, so much as proving it's point to Saakashvili.  Russia currently occupies South Ossetia, anyway, Georgia precipitated the invasion by shelling separatists, and the analogy to Tblisi would be as if Putin were attacking Kiev.  All in all, a bad analogy, in service of an argument that you don't understand what it is you're saying.  Perhaps Putin might be willing to come to the table, but it'll be because he wants to.  

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.

      I didn't say that at all.

      I did bring up Bush's action in 2008 - which wasn't exactly a military action, even though it was carried out by the military.
