McCain Takes Tough Stance on Russians...

While Obama has made glittering generalities (the infamous "not the olympic ideal" statement), McCain takes the tack of making specific policy statements:
"The world has learned at great cost the price of allowing aggression against free nations to go unchecked. A cease-fire that holds is a vital first step, but only one. With our allies, we now must stand in united purpose to persuade the Russian government to end violence permanently and withdraw its troops from Georgia. International monitors must gain immediate access to war-torn areas in order to avert an even greater humanitarian disaster, and we should ensure that emergency aid lifted by air and sea is delivered."
