French President Nicholas Sarkozy has negoiciated a Peace plan between the two countries. The peace plan has 6 points. About 100,000 people have been displaced by the conflict. Russia has already accepted the terms of the plan, but Georgia has not responded as of yet. However I find it hard to believe they want to continue the conflict. To read more about this plan go here

Apparently Medvedev has ordered forces not to attack Georgian forces unless provoked. However Georgian officals say that the bombing continues and that Russia is bombing civilan targets. They are saying they want the President to resign, but will not force him. I think invading his country and refusing to leave unless he resigns is forcing him. President Saakashvili is giving an address to the Georgian people at a rally in the capital has I write this. As of right now Russian troops have not left Georgia. I hope their on their way out. We will know soon enough.
Russian President Medvedev has ordered Russian millitary forces out of Georgia. This comes after Russia had esclated the situation in recent days. The Soviets, I mean Russians cut the country in half and moved deep into Georgia on Monday. They are now saying that Georgia's President Mikhail Saakashvili "better go." Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov Stated they will not talk to the current Georgian President. Both sides have accused the other of ethnic cleansing. "Saakashvili voiced concern Russia's true goal was to undermine his pro-Western government. "It's all about the independence and democracy of Georgia," he said. However pro Russia supporters in Georgia do not agree, "The Georgians burned all of our homes," said one elderly woman, as she sat on a bench under a tree with three other white-haired survivors. "The Georgians say it is their land. Where is our land, then?"
