Watch what they do

NATO is a military alliance. Members explicitly agree that a military threat against one is a threat against all, demanding a collective response.

Clearly, NATO members are not interested in mounting a military response to Russia's invasion of Georgia. Yet equally clearly, that's exactly what NATO membership for Georgia would mean. (At least in theory.)

It's unfortunate that the Georgian people are the ones who have to experience the difference between words and actions.
