It sure is terrible that the US is acting unilaterally and alienating all our good buddies in Europe. Too bad there's no way for us to make new friends.
The Republic of Georgia plans to be a close ally of the United States and its giant neighbor Russia will have to live with that fact, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili said in an interview yesterday.But Georgia is such a small country! Their opinion can't possibly count.
Mr. Saakashvili said his country was sending 500 troops to supplement the 200 soldiers it already has in Tikrit, Iraq, and noted that the United States is training two Georgian military brigades and a counterterrorism force that could be deployed at home or abroad.It counts 700 troops-worth more than France's, anyway.
