http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/europe/08/20/navy.georgia.aid/index.html A Coast Guard cutter named "Dallas" is in route to the Black Sea. Will be interesting to see what happens when it and the destroyer McFaul make it to Poti - will the Russian warships bar entry? Or try to board the US vessels for a "routine inspection"? That, and some of the Black Sea fleet of Russia is returning to Sevastopol - will be interesting to see there if the Ukraine makes good in its threat to bar them entry. From what I've read, the Ukraines have softened their stance somewhat - to "we'd like them not to return, but not much we can do about it if they do."
