War in the Caucasus and the Global Repositioning of China, Germany, Russia and the US

M K Bhardrakumar

A geopolitical convulsion measuring six points on the Richter scale is bound to produce aftershocks. The reverberations of the conflict in the Caucasus are beginning to be felt. We may be unwittingly bidding farewell to the "war on terror". In any case, the international community has lost interest in Osama bin Laden.

The United States has spotted a promising new enemy on the horizon and an engrossing war may be offering itself, with infinite possibilities. The author considers the Russia-Georgian War in the Caucusus through the lens of a new stage in global conflict.


Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar was a career diplomat in the Indian Foreign Service. His assignments included the Soviet Union, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Germany, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Kuwait and Turkey.

He published this article in Asia Times on August 19, 2008. Published at Japan Focus on August 21, 2008.
