So why did the Georgians take the bait without any kind of preparation for the snapping trap?

I would think we would all be able to agree that the Georgians were unwise to take the bait from a position of weakness without simultaneously approving of or excusing the Russian behavior that set the trap in the first place.

That’s essentially my take on it.

Putin was wrong.
Saakashvilli was dumb.
Putting us in a tough spot.
