"?Georgia and Azerbaijan who withdrew from the USSR in 1991, attempted, in violation of?laws, to annex by force the unrecognized states of Nagorni Karabakh, Abkhazia and South Ossetia that were formed at the same time as Georgia and Azerbaijan themselves. In these unlawful actions they have been counting on the support of those countries of the world community which recognized them. This support is the main reason why the Georgian-Abkhazian, the Georgian-Ossetian and the Nagorni Karabakh conflicts still find no solution in the second decade of their existence.? Americans would do well to research the history behind the Russian-Georgian conflict, rather than simply rely on the information conveyed by the U.S. corporate-state news media.
