Obama Speaks Out On Georgia-Russia Conflict

Despite being on a well deserved one-week Hawaii vacation, Obama met with the press today to speak out about the Russian retaliation against Georgia.

Let me be clear: we seek a future of cooperative engagement with the Russian government, and friendship with the Russian people. We want Russia to play its rightful role as a great nation - but with that role comes the responsibility to act as a force for progress in this new century, not regression to the conflicts of the past. That is why the United States and the international community must speak out strongly against this aggression, and for peace and security.
