GEORGIA ON HIS MIND: Vladimir Putin's intentions with regard to his Southern neighbor are anything but benevolent. But with Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and North Korea crowding Page One, Georgia has a hard time getting much attention. However, Dan McKivergan has been following the situation carefully.

Why bother, you might ask? Because Georgia had a peaceful democratic revolution made possible in part by peaceful US democracy promotion efforts. And now Georgia is strongly pro-American.

Recently, Moscow cut off transportation and postal links to Georgia after it arrested four Russians as spies.

Thanks to geography, Georgia faces an unpleasant choice. Accept subordination to Moscow, or cultivate Western support and suffer Moscow's wrath. Georgia has chosen the latter and deserves our help.
