Rice: NATO won't let Russia succeed in Georgia

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) - August 18, 2008 Speaking to reporters on her way to an emergency NATO meeting in Brussels, Rice warned Moscow it is playing a dangerous game with the United States and its allies, who will stand by Georgia and ensure its recovery from a weeklong Russian invasion.

Ahead of Tuesday's meeting, Rice also said the alliance would act to punish Russia for its actions and deny its strategic objectives by ensuring that Georgia's insfrastructure and economy are rebuilt and that its government is fully supported by the West.
