Sarah Palin, nicedeb.files.wordpress.comAlaska Gov. Sarah Palin, emerging from media silence for her first serious interview as the GOP vice presidential pick, said Thursday that the United States might have to go to war if Russia were to invade Georgia again.

Palin made her statements during an interview with ABC “World News” anchor Charles Gibson in which she was pressed on her foreign policy credentials and knowledge, San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Palin said she favors admitting Georgia and Ukraine to NATO. Asked if the United States would have to go to war if Russia again invaded Georgia when it was a NATO member, Palin said, “Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you’re going to be expected to be called upon and help.”

Russia’s Navy, www.daylife.comRussia’s Navy remains a strong force capable of repelling any attack by a potential aggressor, a Navy spokesman said on Tuesday.

“The Navy remains a serious deterrent prepared to thwart any threat to Russia’s national security, and if necessary provide an adequate response to any act of aggression,” Capt. 1st Rank Igor Dygalo said.

Russia announced it will send a naval task group, comprising nuclear-powered missile cruiser Pyotr Velikiy (Peter the Great) and support ships, for a sortie in the Atlantic Ocean, and to participate in joint naval drills with the Venezuelan Navy in November, RIA Novosti informs.

Washington immediately responded by mocking the Russian move, which is widely considered a response to NATO’s increased naval presence in the Black Sea following a brief military conflict between Russia and Georgia over South Ossetia.

U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack jokingly said that if Russia really intended to send ships to the Caribbean, “then they found a few ships that can make it that far.”

Commenting on this statement, Dygalo said: “Do not forget that the Russian Navy has nuclear submarines and surface ships capable of conducting training and combat missions anywhere in the world.”
