Os dois pesos e duas medidas de Washington

A major issue is Russia's contention that the regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia may not be a part of Georgia's future. But these regions are a part of Georgia, and the international community has repeatedly made clear that they will remain so. Georgia is a member of the United Nations, and South Ossetia and Abkhazia lie within its internationally recognized borders. Georgia's borders should command the same respect as every other nation's.
There's no room for debate on this matter. The United Nations Security Council has adopted numerous resolutions concerning Georgia. These resolutions are based on the premise that South Ossetia and Abkhazia remain within the borders of Georgia and that their underlying conflicts will be resolved through international negotiations. These resolutions are based on the premise that South Ossetia and Abkhazia are to be considered a part of the Georgian territory, and to the extent there's conflicts they will be resolved peacefully.
These resolutions reaffirm Georgia's sovereignty and independence and territorial integrity. Russia itself has endorsed these resolutions. The international community is clear that South Ossetia and Abkhazia are part of Georgia, and the United States fully recognizes this reality.


É por este tipo de posições que os EUA são acusados de atitudes pouco dignas. E, neste caso, com sentido.
O que tem a Sérvia a mais ou a menos do que a Geórgia? Qual a diferença do Kosovo para as duas províncias rebeldes da Geórgia?

A incoerência dos EUA é lamentável. E daquilo que tenho visto na comunicação social raras vezes é referida e denunciada.
