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.
The choice was simple: sit back and watch the decade's second Balkan genocide, or split the two combatants up.
There's been a lot of whining and complaining since, but no new Srebrenicas.
If the Serbian regime had behaved decently in the first place, there would have been no need for intervention.
It is like this.
For us, Serbs in our situation, US=Russia.
we are to choose between US-NATO made pile of anti-Serb cr*p, and pile of Russian-made anti-NATO cr*p.
Both piles stinks, and whatever you do you will get sick.
