Abkhazia officially appeals to Russia for independence


www.russiatoday.com

The Abkhazian Parliament has approved an official appeal to Russia to recognise its independence. The appeal was made by Abkhazian President Sergey Bagapsh to Russia and to the governments of other countries to recognise Abkhazia's independence.

All the deputies who took part at the session agreed that the Abkhazians as well as South Ossetians can not live together with the Georgians in one state.

Earlier the Russian Presdient Dmitry Medvedev offered his support to the two breakaway republics

"We will support any decision on the status of Abkhazia and South Ossetia made by their people in accordance with the UN Charter and other international conventions. We will not only support such decisions, we will guarantee their enforcement,” Medvedev said last week.


It's funny how the US only seems to support independence when it's in its own interest. The irony is that true democracy would dictate by overwhelming majority with 97% vote that they be separate states. But of course NATO will magically not see it that way. We already have at least one Palestine. Do we really need more?

Because if the solution of displacing all those people to another area is all anyone has, other than war, as an option, I'd say war is straight where we're headed. Because you can bet neither S.O. or Abkhazia, or more importantly Russia- ain't buying it.

How ironic.

Russia, the enforcer of democracy and freedom in the 21st century.



Good thread

"We guarantee its enforcement."

Now there's a real live unveiled threat.

What our current administration makes of it will be a defining factor in events to follow.

Sup Steve,

Yeah man ain't that the truth. If NATO tries to interfere with these people's independence, Russia may well attack. And nuking the persian gulf fleet is probably crossing their minds. Because it's certainly in their doctrine. It's their citizens, their part of world, and one of these days Bush, NATO, and the NWO had better get the message that the fricken USA can't be allowed to rule the world as it sees fit.

edit: and ohh, xx, Akhazia is on the far western...umm...ok here:



It is one of the breakaway provinces of the breakaway state of Georgia.

And at the same time we are getting statements from Russia like this:

www.mnweekly.ru...

Read the article, and then take a look at the links. Things are being taken way out of hand. I have a feeling it's going to get uglier before anything good happens.

I pray I am wrong.

This map also reveals some of the potential motivation for agreeing to recognize Abkhazia as a sovereign state. For instance a partnership with Abkhazia would allot greater Russian access to the Black Sea. Better access to NATO targets in Turkey, and potential access to Iraq, Israel, Afghanistan, and Iran. Sounds like positioning to me. I don't think the Russians are screwing around with us this time around...This Cold War seems to be heating up quite a bit.

Yeah me too, but it ain't looking good. I read that article the other day. Which given all that's happening, is why I just posted:

Wonder how long before Russians receive that news.

edit: also, additional confirmation of OP here:
