The Christian Serbs are cheering on Russia doing to Georgia what Nato did to them. They’ve lost my sympathy now. And I used to be a very vocal advocate for them. But their morality apparently is situational.
Exuse me??? How can you say that? Nobody is “cheering” and taking side on this stupid war! Especially because they both consider to be Serbias alie, orthodox christians, friendly nations (well more Georgians, because in some crucial moments in history Serbia DIDN`T get help from Russia!). Exactly where did you find any centence that proove that Serbs “cheer” russian actions???
Mostley critique is against that Saakashvili endagered his own people (no matter how his actions were right or not) and that if he was not aware how Russians would react! That it was completely unnecesery to attack S.O. and to have blind faith in NATO as it was presented in Europe in the beginning of this conflict (I myself didn`t know almost anything about this issue before this happened). I never saw ANY debate on TV or read ANY journalist comment that sound as support for Russia on serbian media, just chronology of events in august, history of russian-georgian-ossetian relations, some prognosis and thats it!!! Serbia always paid in blood when reacted against powerful countries and people wonder how georgian president didn`t learn anything from the war in Balkans in 1990s. Russians, by getting in georgian territory out of S.O. did exactly what NATO did and it is bad as much no matter if it is near russian border, unlike USA military base in Kosovo that is thousands of kilometers from US. Both are energo-power “controlled” wars that has nothing to do with protecting some other nation by the “merciful angels”. “Humanitarian actions” are just exuses for the “big” players. Stupid!!!
Politicaly and technicaly Kosovo is precedent, but in essence is not because Kosovo WAS IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE PART OF SERBIAN HISTORICAL, RELIGIOUS AND CULTURAL HERITAGE.
Please don`t say that Serbs are cheering for Russians, because it simply is not truth.
Remember, powerful ones always do what they will, and small what they can. If you can put yourself in the shoes of the small ones you might understand what I was talking about.
