when is a ceasefire not a ceasefire?

When both sides accuse the other side of continuing to fight.

Meanwhile, Matthew Yglesias points out that this war torpedoes the Golden Arches theory of international relations, namely, that countries with McDonald's in them have never fought each other.

Yglesias also has an interesting comentary, taking McCain to task for his "today we are all Georgians" comment. In terms of holding McCain and his ilk accountable for egging Georgia on, he's spot on the ball. However, I doubt Yglesias is against Kennedy's "Ich Bein Ein Berliner" statement, which is essentially in the same sentiment.
