Russia recognises Abkhazia & S. Ossetia
Russia has recognised the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, leaving the Americans and their puppets in London to fume impotently on the sidelines. In London, David Milliband the Foreign Secretary has whimpered that this action was "unjustifiable and unacceptable," but it is unlikely that anyone will take much notice of a little pillock on his gap year who took time out last year to adopt another child. Whether that came about as a result on an inability to get it up, or a failure to shoot anything other than blanks is unclear, but either way few are going to take an inadequate like that seriously.

Russia is so far the only country to have recognised the two new states, but it looks as if Belarus will follow suit over the next few days. It is to be hoped that Moscow will be bending ears in Africa, Asia and Latin-America to encourage as many countries as possible to extend their recognition to Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Their future membership of the United nations will be decided by the body's General Assembly of which there are currently 192 members, so just under a hundred states need to vote in favour of seating the S. Ossetian and Abkhazian delegations. Getting that number of recognitions isn't going to be easy, since most of the third world has secessionist problems of its own, but the chance to stick the boot in the west may just turn out to be too good to miss.

Stick around, folks, as the gang in London are made to look even more useless than they do already.

It's an anomoly of history for Russia, not to be a regional empire. The last 15 years, it has been weak.

Putin didn't change the status quo, he acknowledged it. The US is bogged down in the Middle East, so it can't act.

I'm neutral on US satellite Georgia against Russian imperialism.

Abkhazia and South Ossetia have minorities inside that also have land claims. At my blog I had a long analysis of the situation.

This is a very good blog.

Would it help if I wrote to the UN offering to recognise these two mcro-states? But honestly, who cares whether they're recognised or not; it's just playground politics, and taking it as seriously as you seem to do is, to my mind, a strange thing to do.

Ah Nick, I don't particularly give a stuff either. This is about reminding people of just how useless Nu-Labour are, and how bovine their post-modern ideology is.

New Labour were spectacularly "played" by Bush and the neo cons for being idiots.

Blair has "hand of destiny" character flaws, so spun his way through, with no substance to back him.

Putin is all substance and NO SPIN.

New Labour, are now in one hell of a tight spot. Bush is on his way out and the British Electorate will hold Salem witch trial of anyone who even considers vote for new Labour.

The experiment is dead.
