Palin says U.S. may have to go to war with Russia

Maybe GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin did pick up some insight in Alaska about Russia. She thinks the U.S. may have to go to war with that nation if Russia were to invade Georgia again, ABC News reports.

Here is ABC:

When asked by (Charles) Gibson if under the NATO treaty, the U.S. would have to go to war if Russia again invaded Georgia, Palin responded: "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.

"And we've got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable," she told ABC News' Charles Gibson in an exclusive interview.
