Moscow invents a "provocation"

It looks as though tomorrow's promised start of a pull-out of Russian forces from Georgia may not take place after all. Using a time-honoured KGB-approved method of disrupting such plans, Moscow is accusing Georgia of preparing a "provocation" in the city of Gori, thus signalling that it will intervene to prevent an action it has itself staged. Bascially, the idea is to blame the marauding, killing, burning, stealing and looting on Georgia. Sky News has the beginnings of the story.
