But their morality apparently is situational. What about our situational morality? We look like hypocrites.

I was against the Kosovo campaign. But apparently, the Serbs are OK with Russia doing to Georgia what Nato did to them. I guess for the Serb's, it's OK if it's your pimp daddy doing the screwing.

And there is a key distinction for the US in Georgia - contrary to the statements of some like Pat Buchanan, Georgia is vital to national security interests - Kosovo never was, which is why the Dems supported Kosovo. First of all, Georgia is our keyhole into Central Asia - supply flights from Europe to Afghanistan pass through Georigan airspace. Russia and Iran certainly won't let us do that.

And second, Georgia is the only option for Caspian oil to bypass Russia and Iran on the way to market. Anything we can do to deprive oil revenues to those two regimes is strategic.
