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.
