What did she tell Saakashvili when she was there on July 9th?
Did she tell him that if he gained control over his entire country that we would ensure Georgia would get into NATO?
Did she tell him that if he attacked South Ossetia the US would back him?
And what about this:
About 1,000 US soldiers are training alongside an equal number of Georgian troops and an unspecified number of men from Azerbaijan, Armenia and Ukraine — all of which are members of the Partnership for Peace.
EUCOM called Georgia a key ally in the global “war on terrorism” and regional anti-terror operations. It is currently the third largest contributor of foreign troops in Iraq.
“Georgia’s geographic location also allows other allies and partners in the region to see the benefits of working with the United States,” it said.
So Condoleezza Rice was in Georgia a month before they tried to take back South Ossetia and on top of that the US was participating in joint military exercises with Georgian Troops. So why doesn’t the US media ask our government if they knew that Saakashvili was goig to attack South Ossetia? We need to find out how much responsibility we share in this. And I’m talking about deaths of civilians on both sides of this conflict.
Saakashvili gambled on a surprise attack late Thursday to regain control over South Ossetia. Instead, Georgia – a former Soviet state and current U.S. ally that wants to join NATO – suffered a punishing beating from Russian tanks and aircraft that has left the country with even less control over territory than before.
Why is our government provoking Russia? Don’t they work for us? Of course, the democrats are silent on this as well. Think how much damage has been done over the last 8 years in Russia/US relations. What a disaster George Bush has been.
