The US told Russia to back off Georgia, after Putin linked support against Iraq to military action against Georgia.
"The United States strongly supports Georgia's territorial integrity and would oppose any unilateral military action by Russia inside Georgia," a State Department spokesman told Reuters.
On the other hand Georgia does need to work to stop the Chechens. And we should be pressuring them to work with Russia and maybe allow some joint actions to root them out. Russian civilians are murdered on a regular basis by the groups working out of Georgia.
