If you think back to 2008, I think the world was asleep then. We were more focused on terrorism. We knew that Russia could be a strategic adversary, but many naively believed that in the post-Cold War era, Russia as a whole remained an ally….

It was very naive to hope that Russia would take a part of Georgia, be satisfied with this and then it would be possible to find a solution.

I want to emphasize once again that no one wants war, for sure in the West. At the same time, we must recognize that history sends us lessons and teaches us for the future. The history of 2008 teaches us that ignoring or pretending that there was no invasion has not calmed those who do evil in any way". Adam Kinzinger.

Representative of the Republican Party in the US Congress, from an interview with Voice of America on the 14th anniversary of the August war in Georgia.
