In an interview in his hometown Wyoming newspaper, Dick Cheney said, “I don’t have any idea why people don’t like me.” It seems that the closer the Bush administration gets to leaving the White House, the more the “hardcore hawks” start their repentance.

The lesson to learn about the Georgia-Russia conflict is that the us didn’t protect their “ally” Georgia while the Russians were hitting them hard. Dick Cheney‘s trip to Georgia is like firefighters showing up after the house already burned down. President Saakashvili of Georgia, the best advice is to not challenge your powerful neighbor.
