Something to ponder on

Here is something to think about, especially for those of you that may be Russian, or simply sympathize with the Russian point of view. What is going to happen when:

a) Abzakhia and South Ossetia actually take Russia at her word that they are now independent?

b) How long is it going to take before those separatist guerillas in those two enclaves decide that Russian soldiers are just as attractive a target as their Georgian counterparts?

Did we think about this?

Perhaps at 1.65m or 5'5" Putin qualifies. It seems to me that historically leadership height has been inversely proportional to geo-political trouble, and God help us all now with the Chinese...

It's a good thing then that the average height of Chinese is 5" 6'.

Come now - why are we still believing anything that comes out of Moscow with respect to the situation in Georgia?

Puppet governments in Abzakhia and South Ossetia will accept the protection of Russia. The territories will be purged of ethnic undesireables (has already happened in Abzakhia, I believe). Russian soldiers will continue to occupy the "countries" with the complete acquiesence of the governments and the populace.
