A BBC article from today confirmed what many people have been saying:
Speaking at an event organised by the German Marshall Fund in Washington, Ms Rice acknowledged that Georgia had fired the first shots in the breakaway region of South Ossetia.
“The Georgian government launched a major military operation into Tskhinvali [the capital of South Ossetia] and other areas of that separatist region,” she said.
“Regrettably, several Russian peacekeepers were killed in the fighting,” she added.
