And what kind of support would that be?
Since taking office in January, Obama has tried to restart US-Russian relations, but during a visit to Moscow last week he "reiterated my firm belief that Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected."
Georgia responded positively to Obama's statements, with Saakashvili saying in remarks after the US president's trip to Russia: "There was no trade-off; Georgia has not been sold."
However, in an apparent snub to Obama, Medvedev is scheduled to make his first visit to South Ossetia on Monday.
Once this takes place, Georgia will fall to pro-Kremlin forces within Georgia's government and outside.
TBILISI, Georgia -- Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili is expected to unveil Monday moves to share more power and make elections more democratic in an attempt to mollify his critics and begin a comeback.
Unfortunately, Saakashvili's options are few given Obama is a very weak leader.
This issue with Georgia is about gas pipelines and control of them.
There was much celebration about the Nabucco pipeline, but for the pipeline to become a reality, it will need Iran's natural gas and Russia's cooperation.
Otherwise that pipeline will fail.
Russia wins again...
