georgia on her mind

gibson: would you favor putting georgia and ukraine in nato?
palin: ukraine, definitely, yes. yes, and georgia.
gibson: because putin has said he would not tolerate nato incursion into the caucasus.
palin: well, you know, the rose revolution, the orange revolution, those actions have showed us that those democratic nations, i believe, deserve to be in nato. putin thinks otherwise. obviously, he thinks otherwise, but ...
gibson: and under the nato treaty, wouldn't we then have to go to war if russia went into georgia?
palin: 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.

hmmm ...

i have one question — among many, of course — that i wish gibson had asked our would-be lieutenant commander-in-chief:

which american cities are you prepared to lose in defense of georgia? and is wasilla on that list?
