Russia says troops will pull back by Friday
Russian forces in Georgia will withdraw to a buffer zone by Friday evening -- two weeks after the initial invasion -- according to the deputy chief of staff of Russia's armed forces.
"By the end of the 22nd, we will pull back to the checkpoints line," Gen. Anatoly Nogovitsyn said Thursday at a daily military briefing in Moscow, according to a translation by Russia Today TV station.
Wait, what? I thought they had already pulled back. It's unlikely they will pullback at all.
