But for the wrong reasons. Russia asked China among other Asian nations to back its action in Georgia regarding the break away states. China said "no". The reason probably is because of China's own issues with Tibet and the Muslims in the west of China.
Russia had no business going into Georgia. That whole 5 day war was solely planned and implemented by Russia. Doing it during the Olympics was intentional because other countries and their people were busy looking at China ignoring the Russian government. It takes a lot to move a military over the rough terrain to get to Georgia so the Russians just being there is not possible without large scale plans. The Russians had been secretly moving their army into Georgian territory for a while.
Russia's declaration of not being afraid of another cold war ought to scare the beejeebus out of us and really keep Obama out of office. He has no clue what to do in foreign politics!! This is a very scary time in our history of a nation. Think think think before you vote.
