98th is located near Ivanovo - also quite a bit from Georgia. Isn't it a happy coincidence that it too ended up next to Georgia ready for action before the war started?

Also we know about what Russia had there mostly from what Russia has made known. I seriously doubt they have told about every detail of their war plan. One of the reasons why the best units in Russia do not have the newest and the best equipment Russia can offer is that there isn't enough of it. Also they were fighting Georgia, not NATO, what use would Iskanders have been?

The correct number of troops to be used by Russia = 0.

The war could have been avoided by Russia saying to their officials in SO to stop shooting. The whole conflict could be resolved in a few hours if Putin so decides.
Pskov - who said they are the best. BTW they are VDV and that means paratroopers and they landed them in Abkhazia where omost no fighting went on. The 58th(Army East) army of Vladikavkaz which is near by just went in.
