Since this government has the support of less than 1/3 of the people

95% of world’s governments have similar support

I don't think the government has the strength or stability to do much of anything right now. South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Russian bases... nothing. Maybe they will make some noise for domestic consumption, or at the prompting of allies who are giving them money. Zzzz.

They will try to involve the west, US and EU delegations already discussed the situation in Georgia and Bush also scheduled his visit there. Additionally countries which have problems with separatism will support each other among GUAM organization.

When it comes to Georgia and surrounding areas, the amount of strategic force applied because of oil is just unreal -- it totally overwhelms all other considerations. Is it necessary to remove the Russian bases to secure the oil pipeline? If so, perhaps we will see very serious effort in this direction, because of massive money and support from allies.
