U.S. presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain criticized Russia's military activity in Georgia on Saturday, calling for Moscow to withdraw its forces and the international community to facilitate peace talks.
McCain said he spoke to Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili on Saturday, their second conversation since the crisis erupted. Obama, on vacation in Hawaii, said he had also spoken to Saakashvili and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
McCain, an outspoken critic of Moscow, said it was clear that the situation in Georgia was dire. "Tensions and hostilities between Georgians and Ossetians are in no way justification for Russian troops crossing an internationally recognized border," he said.
Obama called for direct talks among all sides and said the United States, the UN Security Council and other parties should try to help bring about a peaceful resolution. "I condemn Russia's aggressive actions and reiterate my call for an immediate cease-fire," Obama said.

How did Barrack undo his Soetoro adoption and name change?
You know its funny how the left is virtually silent on this, there is NO outrage at all. After all the BS on the US invading Iraq “unjustly” they say nothing. I guess when the Commies do it the left just wants to look at their “good intentions” not their brutal methods. Won’t be until the commies are controlling America and the American Left’s rights are stepped on until they start speaking out!
Its Commie Russia and not Jew Israel in this situation...
In any case, these situations should help McCain I hope. We need a strong leader, not a freaking coward cocaine sniffing dog like Obama...was that too much???
somone tell me again why we were so gung ho to have Goergia join NATO.
“Obama, on vacation in Hawaii, said he had also spoken to Saakashvili and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.”
The Left is silent, except for BHO, of course - once again, he’s saying “me too, me too” - he had “also” spoken to Saakashvili - oh, and throw in Condi Rice.
He’s so lame - I mean vain :-)))
freaking coward cocaine sniffing dog = Obama
“How did Barrack undo his Soetoro adoption and name change?”
He didn’t. According to the book Obama Nation by Dr. Corsi, he went back to Hawaii around 1972 time frame to attend Punahou School, thanks to grandparents Dunham’s pull. Around this time he reverted to using ‘Obama.’ However, he may have started using it without anyone going through the motion of legally ‘adopting’ him. A lot of this man’s life is full of fabrication, I tell you.
Yeah, Baraq, that'll work (doofus!); inasmuch as Russia has a permanent veto on the Security Council. Idiot.
On the conrary the left would love it if Russia were to occupy and control the United States. Their dream of a Soviet style communist "utopia" would be realized at last.
In short... we are interested in Georgia for the same reason Russia is.
