The English tabloid "The Sun" is running tomorrow with the headline "We'll Nuke Poland". This is their interpretation of a Russian statement today that Poland has "made herself a target". A Russian spokesman on the BBC a few minutes ago has said that Georgia will be as nothing compared with the Ukraine if the West persists in encouraging the Ukraine to look towards links with the West. He said "that would be nuclear war". Russian spokesmen have today spoken of their concern about the treatment of ethnic Russians in Estonia and Latvia. Presumably after a few days Russia will "honour" the ceasefire to the extent of pulling back to South Ossetia and Abkhazia. From there they can invade Georgia at any time that suits, and will interfere with everything. There is a theory that they will murder or destabilise Saakashvili and instal a puppet government. How frightened are we? I've worked in Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic and done quite a bit of travelling in the region. I believe Russia would do what they threaten. I'm terrified.
