There was no such thing as a "South Ossetia" independence movement until Russia sent troops into South Ossetia.

There are about 65,000 Ossetians living in South Ossetia and 500,000 Ossetians living in North Ossetia - which is part of Russia.

Apparently the North Ossetians have absolutely no desire for independent nationhood at all - while the five or six villages of Ossetians living in Georgia went magically on fire for self-determination the moment Russian troops strolled in.

Riiiight.

Look here - I am not supporting Putin’s actions in dismembering Georgia in the slightest. Russia must get out of Georgia and preserve Georgian territorial integrity as it existed before the invasion.

That being said, the USA and EU had no business creating a new muslim country out of Serbia either - I have always been against providing ammunition to the jihadists - be they in Europe/Russia/China/Israel/Lebanon/India/Phipplipines/elsewhere.
