Palin leaves open option of war with Russia

FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin left open the option Thursday of waging war with Russia if it were to invade neighboring Georgia and the former Soviet republic were a NATO ally.

"We will not repeat a Cold War," Palin said in her first television interview since becoming Republican John McCain's vice presidential running mate two weeks ago.

Palin told Charles Gibson of ABC News that she'd favor including Georgia and Ukraine, both former Soviet republics, in NATO despite opposition by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Asked whether the United States would have to go to war with Russia if it invaded Georgia, and the country was part of NATO, Palin said: "Perhaps so."

We should put lipstick on her son and dump him in Georgia

How's that for a plan for dealing with Russia?

"Perhaps so'? Palin doesn't

"Perhaps so'? Palin doesn't seem to understand our obligations as part of NATO. NATO countries are OBLIGATED to help defend each other. The US would either need to pull out of NATO or go to WAR with Russia.

We would already be at war with Russia if Georgia was a part of NATO back in early August.

And regarding the "Cold War" - Russia was no longer taking as much part, but the Cold War never ended for the U.S.


Maybe Palin isn't good at geography, and thinks that Georgia

is the state with Atlanta in it!
