Like the Middle-East, the Caucasus region has enough problems of its own not to need any additional interference.<br>Looks like Putin/Medvedyev have laid the US/NATO plans for Georgia on ice for a while.<br><br>Besides, that darling Saakashvili hasn't exactly shown himself as the democrat he was expected to be, and while the US have provided arms and military training, it isn't exactly likely that she'll get involved openly.<br>Besides, a few weeks ago, when tiny Kosovo wanted to leave Serbia, the west welcomed the breakaway "nation".
