On a list of foreign interventions we have currently involved ourselves in the Neocons in the Senate have decided to try and fan the flames of
something far bigger than Syria. Before departing for their five-week vacation the Senate commenced a voice vote which resulted in unanimous support
for the U.S.: “to recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia as regions of Georgia occupied by the Russian Federation.”
If the intention is trying to stir up the Russian Bear they are going about it the right way. Yet it should come as no surprise as this is the same
group of people that were urging the US to intervene on Georgia’s behalf in their fight against Russia after Tbilisi invaded South Ossetia and
Abkhazi back in 2008 to re-annex the breakaway regions and killed Russian peace keeping troops in the process. If South Ossetia and Abkhazi wanted to
be part of Georgia they would not have expelled that country twice from their territory by force. Yet now, just like in the Kosovo issue, we are
intervening in a situation we clearly do not understand or simply care not to understand.
After our intervention into Kosovo to steal that land away from the native Serbians and give it to the Albanians we recognized Kosovo as independent,
at the same time Russia recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent. But of course what Russia says is irrelevant right? It is only important
what the US says in international affairs thousands of miles away from our shores and which is none of our business.
As the article brought up, what if Czar Alexander II said the Russian Empire recognized the independence of Virginia and demanded that the breakaway
enclave of West Virginia be returned to the Confederacy? Well I bet the Americans would be up in arms declaring it no business of a distant empire.
The Russian President Medvedev has been unreasonably nice to the United States and lenient with our threatening ideas of missile defenses in their
region, support of a man who killed their troops, now demands that they return two breakaway regions to a nation which invaded to occupy them right on
the Russian border, and have kept alive a Cold War designed military alliances while expanding it onto their border. Perhaps now Russia will learn the
US is not here to be nice to them, the Neocons have not abandoned the Cold War mindset, and playing by the games of understanding just will not
It is time for Russia to get tough and start standing up against those who intentionally threaten, aggravate, and interfere in their business.
