Kosovo and Georgia

An excellent article in the Guardian on why Russia and the West aren't speaking the same language when it comes to Georgia, S.Ossetia and Abkhazia. The reason is Kosovo, the precedent that the West refuses to acknowledge.

My prescription is as usual: give up on the breakaway provinces (not that we have to recognize them or anything), and focus on saving the sovereignty of Georgia proper.
