Nebosja Malic, "Empire's grip weakens,", September 19, 2008.

  A far more damaging development for U.S. hegemony came on September 8, when Brazil and Argentina inked an agreement to stop using dollars in bilateral trade.

February 17, 2008 was supposed to be a triumph of Empire's doctrine of righteous interventionism, anytime, anywhere. That Moscow and Belgrade could not stop the blatantly illegal creation of "independent" Kosovo was to be the proof of Washington's power, and its designated victims' powerlessness.

Ossetia showed otherwise.
