Then second question is redundant. :) If Kosovo precedent didn't happen and Georgia didn't kill civilians, I would rather support Georgia as well.
There may be parallels with many modern day ethnic conflicts, but simply stating that conflicts like this are the same thing, unfairly simplifies the problem. It is essential in cases like Georgia to know more rather than less.
Ok. You're right. SO has more
rights to be independent then Kosovo ever had since it has never been the cradle of Georgian culture and religion, Osetians have never kept down Georgians on their territory and they've lived on that territory for centuries.
