Are the EU and OSCE peacekeepers and observers playing a valuable role?How has the Georgian conflict affected the critical oil and gas pipelines that traverse the Caucasus?Have Moscow's actions in Georgia contributed to the exodus of foreign capital and the plunge in the Russian stock market?What are the chances for NATO membership action plans for either Georgia or Ukraine? - World Affairs Council of Washington, D.C.
