Russia's deputy prime minister says his country's actions in Georgia were comparable to the US reaction to the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Sergei Ivanov told the British Broadcasting Corp. that his country had no choice but to attack Georgia after it tried to retake control of its breakaway region of South Ossetia.
