Georgians are asking tough but fair questions:
As a Russian jet bombed fields around his village, Djimali Avago, a Georgian farmer, asked me: “Why won’t America and Nato help us? If they won’t help us now, why did we help them in Iraq?”
A similar sense of betrayal coursed through the conversations of many Georgians here yesterday as their troops retreated under shellfire and the Russian Army pressed forward to take full control of South Ossetia.
Georgia stuck out its neck to align with the West instead of its former Russian masters. If we won't stand by our friends, we won't keep them for very long.
