Mother May I?

Russia's Redheaded Stepchild

-
Georgia has long fought against the onslaught of Russian totalitarianism. Since the breakup of the Soviet Union, Georgia has sought out its own national destiny. And for this Mother Russia is willing to punish its stray colony with any force she deems necessary.
-
Echoing the Stalin purges, Putin and his boys are now attempting to "cleanse" areas of Georgian citizens. With a deadline set before them by the UN's "World Court", Putin and his thugs will quickly expel Georgians from "break away" areas such as Abkhazia and South Ossetia. A task they have been working at since the 1990's.
-
The five day war back in 2008 was started over the fact that Georgia was trying to reign in Abkhazia (a territory of Georgia that Russia claims is independent) and stop the ethnic cleansing in the area. Once the Georgian troops (who had been equipped to fight civilian militias) were in the area Russia sent in its professional army. The irony of all this was that Moscow had for years been forcing ethnic Georgians into conscription in the Abkazianian Army.
-
War broke out a little before midnight on August 7Th, 2008. This was the precise moment that the Red Wave of fascism swept over the land in the form of Russian soldiers. Under international law Russia had no grounds for entering a territory or province of a foreign nation without provocation. Yet the UN stood back and watched the mass murder in progress.
-
As of Monday, September 13Th, Georgia has brought forth complaints of continued and government backed "ethnic cleansing" in its own territories. These two rebel territories are currently backed by Moscow and operated as puppet states in the new Russia's Soviet Union. Putin and his thugs have put forth policies that mandate that teaching or speaking native Georgian tongue is punishable by law. Russia has also backed the deportations and mass murders of ethnic Georgians in Abkazia and South Ossetia.
-
And as one might have guessed, Russia is denying any responsibility for the murders or the "separatist" in the two Georgian territories. Despite credible (and ever expanding) evidence that Moscow has been behind several cases of ethnic cleansing, Putin's thugs are sticking to their guns.
-
"As a result of ethnic cleansing since 2008, the ethnic Georgian population of more than 7,000 has been reduced to less than 1,000," Georgian First Deputy Minister of Justice, Tina Burjaliani told the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

"Georgia launches five-day 'legal war' against Russia" -English pravada.ru
-
And yet with figures like this, the UN sees fit to hold five days of "hearings" just to see if the Georgian "lawsuit" can even be heard before The Hague's "World Court". After this they will wait the given time span before even daring to anger Mother Russia by bringing such a case before the International Court of Justice. All the while Putin will continue to execute ethnic Georgians and deporting the excess his men cannot slaughter fast enough.
-
It makes me wonder what would have happened if we had the UN back when Hitler and Stalin were ruling Europe. How would the Holocaust ended if Hitler would have known just how much time he had before the Allies would "take action" against him? How long would Stalin have purged his country of "unfit" pseudo-communist if he had known just how long he had before anybody noticed?
-
"Russia contributed to the brutal ethnic cleansing of Georgians by separatist forces of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by providing arms, fighters, mercenaries, and direct military intervention of Russian armed forces that has led to widespread violence against civilians in Georgia", states the claim currently before the UN's World Court.
-
And yet here we are more than two years after the war and no legal action has ever been taken against Russia. This claim was issued against Russia the day the war ended when Georgia realized its forces could not regain control of the rebel territories. Georgia had not anticipated Russia's intervention or the fact that the United States would not do the same.
-
So after five days of slaughter (in which Russia was documented killing news reporters, Georgian POWs, and civilians who happened to be fleeing the battle fields) Russia has gotten its way once again. Russian forces still occupy the two territories while Washington turns its eyes elsewhere. Obama seems to believe that our currently bombarded ally does not need our support (in much the same way FDR thought Stalin was a "good guy"). All the while Georgia is deprived of its national sovereignty.
-
So once again I would just like to ask... how would the Holocaust have ended if Hitler had known the time and date the Allies would "take action" against him?
