Putin - the real leader - plans to annex South
Ossetia to Russia, using the claim Ossetians want independence from Georgia. He will use similair tactis in Azerbaijan and the Ukraine. Putin is being double standard. Chechnya wants independence from Russia but he attacked them. If Russia annexes Ossetia then Chechnya should be declared independent.
Instead of spending money on military conquest, Putin should be spending money on decreasing Russsian poverty.

LOOKS LIKE THE NEXT MOVE FOR THE WEST IN THIS CHESS GAME IS TO RECOGNIZE CHECHNYA AS A SEPARATE
STATE, INDEPENDENT OF RUSSIA !

PETER, Do not stop with that; go on further, recognize independence of:
Quebec — of Canada
Northern Ireland — of the UK
The Crimea — of Ukraine
Nagorny Karabakh — of Azerbaijan
Corsica — of France
Transnistria (Pridnestrovie) — of Moldova
TIbet — of the P.R.C.
Basque State — of Spain.

And certainly, kurds are waiting in Turkey, Iran and Iraq. And there are more minor peoples worldwide who wont (and sometimes fight for) independence.

But stop: at present, there is no Checnya in this list. Or do you consider some bandits escaped from justice to, say, the UK like Akhmed Zakayev, as plenipotential representatives of Chechenians?

This war was disaster. It was wrong. Russia and Georgia should be friends as it was in the past. Only solution is it.
