Georgia's President Appeals For Help Against Russia In The Wall Street Journal Georgia's President Mikheil Saakashvili takes his plea to stop Russia "war on my country" in The Wall Street Journal today. Read an excerpt below and the full piece here.
As I write, Russia is waging war on my country.
On Friday, hundreds of Russian tanks crossed into Georgian territory, and Russian air force jets bombed Georgian airports, bases, ports and public markets. Many are dead, many more wounded. This invasion, which echoes Afghanistan in 1979 and the Prague Spring of 1968, threatens to undermine the stability of the international security system.
LSB: Instead of huddling with our Olympians, why wasn't "W" huddling with Putin about this? They were both at the opening ceremonies. Didn't it come up?
