    3. The sad part is that Russia has pretty much killed off the quest for freedom of most minorities and many have "merged" into the Russian culture and processes.
    1. What in God's name is "Tatarshina"?

    2. Good descision since the cossack's code of honour reads "Cossack is a servant of his Motherland - Russia, and its defender against external and internal enemies. Cossack sees his main mission in serving the people of Russia for the sake of their welfare and not for his own gain and glory. For that cossack is ready to shed his blood." http://www.allcossacks.ru/3ofp/ofp06051.htm

    3. Are you for real? You find it sad that ethnic minorities feel at home in Russia???!!!

Such events could also increase the risk of Russia's nuclear materials falling into the hands of unsavory actors.

    In turn, those developments would further complicate difficulties facing the U.S. in Afghanistan, Pakistan's struggles with respect to the Taliban and its own internal governance, as restive elements would be encouraged by developments in and around Russia.

    In short, from the particular focus of U.S. interests and broader perspective of international security and stability, the spreading of religious unrest into Russia would not be a positive development.

    Believe me, Ukrainian diaspora that is composed mainly of descendants of OUN/UPA would be happy to watch the whole world go up in flames just to annoy Russia.

    Funny thing is that I told you all this just a few days after the war. But then all of you were like usual wearing the pro-US anti-Russian goggles.

    Aside from that it is important to point out that Russia was also poking at US Iraq and Afghanistan policies by so lightly going into Georgia without UN approval, or any approval at all, just like the US did in Iraq for example..

    The difference was, if Russia waited for UN approval there would've been no one left to defend in S.Ossetia. Which was probably the point of US and Britain dragging their feet...

    No, the reason the US UK axis "dragged their feet" was to finalize the propaganda campains and make timing perfect.

    S. Ossetia is sovereign Georgian territory try again.

    2. Russian troops in S.Ossetia were part of a peacekeeping mission in which Georgia also participated.
    Them being there without the approval of the Georgian government is an act of war.

    3. When Georgia attacked, it killed Russian peacekeepers.
    Georgia didn't attack they defended themselves from S. Ossettian Russian backed terrorist attacks. Try again.

    4. Some 90% of S.Ossetians at the start of the war were Russian citizens.
    Due to the warcrime of population transfer into another countries sovereign territory.

    Korea, first Iraq War, Kosovo,.. there are plenty of examples. In fact, I cant remember when the US came to the "rescue" of a nation without the Europeans.
