Melodies bring memories that linger in my heart

A BBC news team reporting from Georgia came under (a not terribly effective) attack by a Russian warplane. Ricky bin Ricardo offered the following comment at Rantburg:*

Can you say "red on red", boys and girls? I knew you could!

Not to worry. George Brown has issued a strongly worded statement as the Russians overrun Georgia.

... the escalation of violence has led to concerns that Russia could try to annex the entire country. 'They want the whole of Georgia,' claimed President Saakashvili. 'The Russians need control over energy routes from central Asia and the Caspian Sea. 'In addition, they want to get rid of us, they want regime change. Every democratic movement in this neighbouring region must be got rid of.'

* Thanks to Angelweb for pointing out my garbled code, now repaired.

Update: "Meanwhile, the anti-war left take to the streets in the thousands to condemn the imperialist aggressors. Any moment now."
