According to the newly released book, A Little War That Shook The World, Vice President Cheney wanted to take great advantage of the Russian-Georgian conflict back in 2008. The White House’s primary objective for potential military intervention was to prevent the Georgiran troops from being defeated by Russian troops.
The book claims that President Bush was also told of the suggestion for military intervention, however, he declined.
