Guns of August

Russian Federation Prime Minister Vladimir Putin told United States President George W. Bush, who is also in Beijing, People's Republic of China that "war has started today in South Ossetia."

At the Pentagon, a senior defense official said Friday that Georgian authorities have asked the United States for help getting their troops out of Iraq.

Georgia has about 2,000 troops serving with the coalition forces in Iraq, making it the third-largest contributor after the United States and Britain.
