Hosted by

gates_news_conf.jpgAt a news conference this morning, Defense Secretary Robert Gates outlined humanitarian effort in Georgia and discussed long-term implications for relations with Russia. He said the US has no desire to resume the Cold War, but that Russia's aim was to "punish" Georgia for being too close to the West. As Gates spoke, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was in Paris, on her way to Georgia's capital city of Tbilisi. Peter Spiegel covers the Pentagon for the Los Angeles Times.
