The latest news on Georgia (country)
But the media insist on focusing on irrelevant ephemera like John Edwards's love life.
Will Ukraine and Georgia become the next countries to gain NATO admission? President Bush, who is Romania bound for the NATO summit opening tomorrow, said today that both countries are "ready and worthy" to join NATO. But Russia, claiming "sphere of influence" rights, is scowling at the proposal, and France and Germany are intimating opposition. "France will not give its green light to the entry of Ukraine and Georgia," French Prime Minister François Fillon said today. "We are opposed to Georgia and Ukraine's entry because we think that it is not the correct response to the balance of power in Europe and between Europe and Russia."
