THE WORLD’S PRESS had their attention diverted from the glitter of China’s Olympic games as the dispute between Russia and the Caucasian republic of Georgia over the small breakaway region of South Ossetia suddenly escalated into a nightmarish military conflict.

Let it happen…" PETE DICKENSON assesses this shift in position.
