Press TV:

US Vice President Dick Cheney has threatened Russia after the country was forced to reply Georgia’s attack on South Ossetia’s region. 

In a phone conversation with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili on Sunday, Cheney said Russia’s military actions in Georgia ‘must not go unanswered’. 

Continuation of Russian attack ‘would have serious consequences for its relations with the United States, as well as the broader international community,’ Cheney’s press secretary, Lee Ann McBride, quoted him as telling Saakashvili… 

…Georgian military forces launched a large-scale military offensive against South Ossetia on Thursday evening hours before the start of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Russia, in response, moved its forces to the region. 

The conflict has left at least 2000 people dead.
