Hypocrite Bush: "Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected." I say "But What About Kosovo!?"

On my followup regarding Bush's hypocritical action and decision making, I knew Bush would utter the most hypocritical statements. Today he said
“Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected,” Really, Great Leader? Let's see what you said 8 months ago when you and your EU elites decided to take kosovo from Serbia and give it to the Muslims. You said it was a 'unique' situation. You said the Serbs had proven themselves antagonistic to the poor Muslims and would continue to oppress them. You said it would not set a precedent for other ethnic sections of sovereign states to seek independence or rejoin with another adjoining state.


Same thing or totally different?

The Russian Ambassador to NATO sums it up quite well -

Territorial Integrity of Georgia Impossible without Territorial Integrity of Serbia

“Preserving the territorial integrity of Georgia will not be possible without preserving the territorial integrity of Serbia in Kosovo and Metohija province”, Russian Ambassador to NATO Dimitry Rogozin said in Brussels.

“It is unacceptable to recognize the unilateral independence of Kosovo province from Serbia and, at the same time, keep repeating the territorial integrity of Georgia must be respected when it comes to South Ossetia and Abkhazia”, Rogozin said at the press conference.

“If we all respect the territorial integrity of Serbia in regards to its Kosovo province, then we are also going to honor the territorial integrity of Georgia. But if someone doesn’t respect Serbia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty over Kosovo and Metohija, then they better shut up about the territorial integrity of Georgia”, Rogozin said.

He stressed that West won’t be able to “pretend nothing happened in South Ossetia, as if there was no bombardment of the civilian population, massacre of minorities and murder of the Russian peacekeepers committed by Tbilisi”.

On the other hand, “what NATO did in Yugoslavia — slaughter of civilians, destruction of the bridges on Danube, razing the Belgrade television and the rest, takes away their right to criticize Russia for any present of future actions,” Russian Ambassador said.

“Our critics behave like wolves, wanting to eat their sheep when hungry. But we are not a sheep, we are the Russian bear,” Rogozin said.

Events of the past week make it quite clear. Russia is just a thug that's bullying a tiny democracy on its periphery that it sees as its own. Russia is a dictatorship that, thanks to high oil and gas prices, is getting back into the empire-building business. Kosovo for them is a convenient figleaf, an excuse for their aggression.

If anyone should be blamed for this, it should be Putin and his cronies in Moscow. They wrote the script for this adventure of theirs awhile ago. I'm convinced they were preparing to carry out their Georgian assault no matter what happened in the Balkans.

If you're going to do nothing but blame and attack Bush--and ignore the guy who gave the actual invasion orders (Putin)--it does nothing but play right into the hands of our enemies.

Pedestrian,

It's good to see that some people haven't completely lost their marbles re Georgia.

The US is being scammed by Soros, media whores, paid lobbyists, psychologically disturbed gliberal do-”good”ers, Georgian gangsters, PR manipulators, useful idiots, moronic “reporters”, ignorant talk-radio windbags, and Internazis.

"Czech President Klaus says both sides to blame in conflict over South Ossetia

"President Klaus has said both sides are to blame in the military conflict over South Ossetia. In a statement for Czech Radio [Radio Praha realplayer audio link 3m31s], Mr. Klaus said that he strongly condemned both Georgia’s attack on South Ossetia and the massive intervention of the Russian military. He said that to lay the blame exclusively at Russia’s door would be unjust, and noted that with the separation of Kosovo, Russia had obtained a strong justification for its action. The president likewise rejected the comparison with the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, saying that the circumstances in the Caucuses were entirely different."

He went on to say that to compare Mikheil Saakashvili to Alexander Dubček would be an insult to Dubček, and that the much-cited example of the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia to the Russian defense of South Ossetia is specious and misleading since Czechoslovaks did not slaughter their fellow citizens.

Wow. What happened? Didn’t Klaus get the memo from Washington? Doesn’t he know he’s supposed to go on TV and shake hysterically, and cry, and moan about how scared he is that next week Russian troops will be marching into Prague Castle?

Or maybe he know what he’s talking about…

Maybe he knows that Russia has had military forces in Southern Ossetia continuously since 1801.

Maybe he knows that Georgians are cultural chauvanists and well-known self-pitying con-artists.

Maybe he knows Russia helped preserve the Ossetian language and cultural autonomy.

Maybe he knows that the Russians don’t consider themselves as invaders or occupiers or even outsiders or visitors in South Ossetia, and therefore the idea that their defense of Osetian autonomy is not a training exercise for the occupation of Madrid!

As soon as NATO troops arrive the ancient Serbian churches are set afire. In the first 100 days of Western democracy more than 150 churches and monasteries get burned or dynamited. These churches, some of them so ancient and valuable that they were declared UNESCO Level Zero meaning: “world treasure”. These churches survived more than 500 years of harsh Islamic rule of the Ottoman Turks. The churches survived years of Mussolini and Hitler control of Kosovo.
THEY COULD NOT SURVIVE THE MODERN WESTERN "TOLERANCE"
America, the Evangelical nation pharisaic religiosity ignored these acts. Stood by and watched in APPROVAL.

It is a shame to see Americans take the knocks on PI, but there is much good reason for it.
Considering the vast majority of US citizens never leave the USA, and have very weak geographical knowledge of Europe, it can only fall to the Administration's policies and attitudes, spelt out in speeches by Bush and Rice.
Years of speech making to "Palestine" has done nothing to change the facts on the ground.
Making speeches to the Russians will have little effect either.
I hope McCain has a better foreign policy team than Bush.
