US: Russian violence in Georgia not acceptable.

The American Vice President Dick Cheney has told the Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili that the US fully supported him. Mr Cheney's office says he told the Georgian leader that Russian aggression must not go unanswered.

Dick Cheney's telephone call appears to have been an effort to send a message not just of solidarity but also of readiness for action. His office said he told the Georgian President that Russian aggression must not go unanswered - and that its continuation would have serious consequences for Russia's relations with the United States, as well as the broader international community. Mr Cheney also praised president Saakashvili for his government's restraint.

Asked to explain what was meant by the phrase 'must not go unanswered', White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said, 'It means it must not stand'. White House officials refused to speculate on what America might do if the Russian military action continued.

President Bush, in an interview on American television broadcast live from the Beijing Olympic Games, said he had expressed his grave concern at the disproportionate response of Russia.
