Ronald Asmus – A Little War That Shook the World: Georgia, Russia, and the Future of the WestRonald Asmus – A Little War That Shook the World: Georgia, Russia, and the Future of the West

The brief war between Russia and Georgia in August 2008 seemed to many like an unexpected shot out of the blue that was gone as quickly as it came. Former Assistant Deputy Secretary of State Ronald Asmus contends that it was a conflict that was prepared and planned for some time by Moscow, part of a broader strategy to send a message to the United States: that Russia is going to flex its muscle in the twenty-first century. A Little War that Changed the World is a fascinating look at the breakdown of relations between Russia and the West, the decay and decline of the Western Alliance itself, and the fate of Eastern Europe in a time of economic crisis.

2008 წლის აგვისტოში რუსეთსა და საქართველოს შორის მოკლე ომი მრავალისთვის ჩანდა დიდ მოულოდნელობას, რომელიც გაჩენისთანავე ჩაწყნარდა. სახელმწიფოს მდივნის მოადგილის ყოფილი თანაშემწე, რონალდ ასმუსი ამტკიცებს, რომ ეს იყო დიდი ხნის განმავლობაში მოსკოვის მიერ მომზადებული და დაგეგმილი კონფლიქტი. ის იყო ფართო სტრატეგიის ნაწილი, ამერიკის შეერთებული შტატებისთვის გზავნილის გასაგზავნად, რომ რუსეთი ოცდამეერთე საუკუნეში ძალის დემონსტრირებას აპირებს. მცირე ომი, რომელმაც შეძრა მსოფლიო არის შესანიშნავი ხედვა რუსეთსა და დასავლეთს შორის ურთიერთობების გაფუჭებაზე, თავად დასავლური ალიანსის დაცემასა და დაღმასვლაზე, აგრეთვე ეკონომიკური კრიზისის პერიოდში აღმოსავლეთ ევროპის ხვედრზე.
