Michael Totten on the recent events in Ossetia


Update. According to several comments here, some of the Russians cannot read at all: "access forbidden". If you reside in Russia, could you confirm if you can or cannot read it? Thanks.

Update. You can always read it like this: michaeltotten.

Update. A useful discussion here (with further links), in Russian; and here, in Russian.

Update. MT: I tried to get to the other side of the front line, so to speak, and was thrown back by the Russian military. I'll write about that in my next piece. -[August 28, 2008 8:57 AM] The Russians were actually pretty friendly about the whole thing, and they let me through a lot more checkpoints than I expected. -[August 28, 2008 10:48 AM] I would have interviewed those on the other side of the line, but the Russian military requires an unattainable Russian visa to visit even the parts of Georgia they control. -[August 30, 2008 9:18 AM]

Well, I am looking forward to his next article.
