Tbilisi

The nation of Georgia is being bullied by Putin's regime in Russia. "Last January, the Kremlin cut off gas supplies to the Ukraine to punish Kiev. Is Tbilisi next?" It looks like Putin is betting that the West will let him get away with it. If Democrats win on Tuesday, I don't expect that they will be interested in starting up the Cold War again. They certainly don't have anybody like Truman or even like Hubert Humphrey any more. If Ted Kennedy is the best they have for an elder statesman, it's hard to be sanguine about their willingness to support freedom against the rebuilding of the Iron Curtain.
