The following news item was of interest:

MOSCOW (Aug. 12) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev ordered a halt to military action in Georgia on Tuesday, after five days of air and land attacks that took Russian forces deep into its small U.S.-allied neighbor in the Caucasus.

Medvedev said on national television that the military had punished Georgia enough for its attack on South Ossetia. Georgia launched an offensive late Thursday to regain control over the separatist Georgian province, which has close ties to Russia.

As I posted about this a few days ago (in ICG, Wars, and Rumors of Wars), Jesus said that there would be wars and we are not to be troubled.

The Georgia situation has been partially credited in reversing the downfall of the US dollar as the following shows (though with the announcement by the Russian president, this may reverse soon):

Dollar gains as eurozone growth seen ebbing

Agence France-Presse – August 12, 2008

NEW YORK – The dollar gained further ground against the euro and other currencies Monday as fears continued to circulate that eurozone economic growth is slowing.

Traders said that renewed fighting between Georgian and Russian troops in Georgia had also unsettled euro sentiment.

The single European currency was quoted at 1.4898 dollars around 2100 GMT, down from 1.5013 late Friday, and marking its lowest depths against the dollar since late February.

Ongoing hostilities in Georgia also caught the market’s attention.

As I have long been reporting, there will be ups and downs with the US dollar, but its long-term trend is down. The 6,000 plan for humankind is almost up and the Great Tribulation will most likely begin next decade with the destruction of the US and its Anglo allies.
