Putin Assails US Over Conflict With Georgia

"It's a pity that some of our partners instead of helping are in fact trying to get in the way," Putin said at a Cabinet meeting. "I mean among other things the United States airlifting Georgia's military contingent from Iraq effectively into the conflict zone."

A two-front battlefield would be a major escalation in the conflict, which blew up Friday after a Georgian offensive to regain control of separatist South Ossetia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If any of the US troop transport aircraft carrying Georgian soldiers back home gets hit, it raises this conflict to a whole new dimension.
