And those families that you know are highly representative of all the S. Ossetian population?!? Just so I understand this, how many families do you personally know and what study have you completed of these families that personally know that allows you to make such a statement?

It's all good and proper merging all the discussion into it's own forum, excellent idea... but how come the thread amvas created is still in his forum, I thought that area was just for WW2 topics?

EDIT;

Actually, there is another related thread on that topic there too.

I am somewhat confused by this argument, but I will still add my two cents.

I had heard that S.Ossetia is (or was) legally part of Georgia, so I think it would be naive to say that no Georgians are (or were, if the ethnic cleansing stories are true) in S.Ossetia.

I have no idea, I would assume that at least some Russians decided to move their after it was annexed, but wasn't it a part of the Imperial Russian Empire anyway?

SO becomed legal part of georgia since very polysemantic way at a fall of USSR
then there was civil war between ossetians and georgians with also genocide of ossetians by georgians
since then and since now there are no way ossetians and abhasians would like to live it one country with georgians
just because they do not feel them selfes safe with them
every people has rights of selfdetermination
this people prooved that right with thousands of inocent lives

But what nation could an independent S.Ossetia become? Certainly not very strong (militarily or economically), and definitely under heavy Russian influence, if it won't be annexed outright.

So, do you think that Poland was always a nation, even after the Third Partition? Or that Texas is still an independent republic?

Maybe the Confederacy still exists...

You know...There might be an interesting historical analogy between the Ossetia issue and the Texas War of Independence and Mexican-American War.
