Russia 1, US 0

Surprisingly (given its conservative bias), the Wall Street Journal says that Russia “gave the U.S. a bloody nose” in the Georgia dust up. But if Bush got a bloody nose, then John McCain got a broken nose and lost a few teeth as the most conspicuous friend and promoter of Georgia, as I noted previously.

Of course, Condi Rice didn’t come out too well either. The NYT reports that in a recent visit to Georgia, Condi’s public stance was one of “defiant support for Georgia in the face of Russian pressure,” while she claims that privately she warned Saakashvili “not to get into a military conflict with Russia that Georgia could not win.” Maybe Condi should not have been so shy about publicly warning Georgia not to get into a fight with Russia.
