Cease-fire? Yes. Cease-agitation? No.

The shooting appears to have stopped, but Russia is still trying to muscle Mikhail Saakashvili out of power.

The free world has to be careful here.  Just because Russia has agreed to a cease-fire doesn't mean Georgia is out of danger.  Moscow has already moved out a democratically elected Georgian leader (Zviad Gamsakhurdia), and unless the free world tries to stop Putin and Medvedev's geopolitical sleight-of-hand, Moscow could do it again.

Both seem to blast away to get their way.
