Deputy Secretary Robert M. Kimmitt Talks To Georgian Prime Minister Gurgenidze

Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Robert M. Kimmitt issued the following statement on his telephone conversation with Georgian Prime Minister Lado Gurgenidze:

Earlier today, I telephoned Prime Minister Gurgenidze to express the United States' continuing support for the democratically-elected government of Georgia and to reiterate our willingness to join other countries to support deeper engagement by the International Financial Institutions to assist Georgia's economy. Prime Minister Gurgenidze updated me on Georgia's economy and I noted that the Treasury Department continues to believe Georgia's sound macroeconomic and fiscal policies – as well as its excellent progress transitioning to a market economy – make it well-placed to weather the current crisis.

Ah, Bob,

Are you out of your frigging mind with this nonsense happy talk? The newest U.S, neo-con satellite, Georgia, is being shelled by the Russkies. "Sound macroeconomic polices"(yet to be verified) is a good thing, but just how will this stop a convoy of tanks? If I am dying of cancer, the last thing I want to hear is happy talk about my checkbook being balanced.
