"Saakashvili Calls McCain’s Bluff"


Don’t tell Jon Chait, but it looks like Mikhail Saakashvili thought it meant something when John McCain proclaimed America and Georgia to be identical:

“Yesterday, I heard Sen. McCain say, ‘We are all Georgians now,'” Saakashvili said on CNN’s American Morning. “Well, very nice, you know, very cheering for us to hear that, but OK, it’s time to pass from this. From words to deeds.”

People sometimes mock the idea of “diplomatic language” but, obviously, when it comes to national security you need to choose your words carefully.
