Ames writes: "The Estonians first tried suckering the West with the cyber-chupacabra a year ago, but subsequent investigation revealed that it was one of those 'unprovables' at best." The origins of the cyber-attacks may be difficult to prove, but to imply that Estonians were attempting to "sucker" the West is a pretty outlandish accusation. Talk about "&ens;'unprovable' at best"!
Estonia is a tiny country with a long history of being either occupied or bullied by its much larger and more aggressive neighbour. Can you present any historical evidence of Estonians collectively behaving in such a deceptive and dishonest manner, leading you to jump to such a unfounded conclusion?
Sharing a border with Russia is probably the only thing that Estonia has in common with Georgia, so there is no real reason to even include it in the article, except to generate some additional misguided empathy for an authoritarian, brutish government in Moscow.
