the invisible hand of dick cheney has flour dumped all over it, as the cold warrior coterie also known as the second GWB administration gets to play ‘up the ante‘ with big bad vlad.
A French-brokered ceasefire has been in place between Russia and Georgia since Tuesday, but each side has accused the other of breaking the accord.
Mr Bush said Russia’s actions had “raised serious questions about its intentions in Georgia and the region”.
“To begin to repair the damage to its relations with the United States, Europe and other nations, and to begin restoring its place in the world, Russia must keep its word and act to end this crisis.”
He said he had ordered a series of steps to demonstrate “solidarity with the Georgian people”, including sending Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Tbilisi later this week, and launching a “vigorous and ongoing” humanitarian mission.
humanitarian does not mean what you or i think it means apparently.
