'Barbarian invaders'

Just now live on BBC, Nik Gowing while interviewing Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili asked why he (the president) kept calling the Russians the 'barbarian invaders'.
Saakashvili seemed genuinely perplexed as if he could not fathom being asked such a stupid question and then said-
"What else do you call them?"

Also from the Georgian president -the Russians bombed a railway station and some more apartment blocks and now control the east-west highway cutting off Georgia in half.
