If one swallow doesn't make a summer how many swallows do?
Rumours are circulating about another war. First just one person in our office (who was the first with the news of the August war) then today a quite unconnected source.
A plan for war is given as the reason for the build up of Russian forces in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Of course this is a provocation, but as long as they stay there it isn't so much of a problem.
But no, there seems to be the idea that if Saakashvili has another go, it will distract from the 7th November opposition demonstration in remembrance of last year's confrontation.
Of course it's all speculation. Let's hope it is all wrong. You would think that the Russians had enough on their plate at the moment, what with the oil price and the stock exchange collapse. And reorganising the military.
So I'm glad I'm leaving for a bit.
And just to add fuel to the fire, here is the latest from www.civil.ge.
Today I heard a rumour about replacement of the Prime Minister.
