Is South Ossetia and Abkhazia part of Georgia?

Several of my blog friends have argued that Georgia's attack on South Ossetia was the equivalent of the US War of North Aggression (aka the US Civil War). Implicit in this view is the inaccurate belief that Abkhazia and South Ossetia are part of Georgia. This is not accurate. Both Abkhazia and South Ossetia left the former Soviet Union at the same time as Georgia and all three declared their independence. Georgia has no national claims on either on Abkhazia or South Ossetia.

Here's some evidence for this fact:

"...Developments on Caucasus are on edge. The Russian Upper Parliament is holding an extraordinary meeting on Monday to discus the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia’s independence. The two seceded Republics declared their independence from Georgia unilaterally in the beginning of the 90s after the collapse of the former Soviet Union..." (emphasis mine, Source)

Russia is not seeking to take over these regions, they are preparing to officially recognize their independence.


Russian President Dmitri Medvedev said today, in no uncertain terms, that Georgia will lose South Ossetia. He also extended this forecast to the separatist enclave of Abkhazia, saying that it was "unlikely Ossetians and Abkhazians will ever be able to live together with Georgia in one state."

In fact, South Ossetia and Abkhazia have enjoyed de facto independence from Georgia for well over a decade, although international recognition has not followed. There are ethnic, religious and cultural differences between the two regions and Tbilisi that make unification impossible, even if the international community recognizes them as one country. Put bluntly, South Ossetians and Abkhazians hate Georgians and vice versa. (emphasis mine, Source)

And again:

South Ossetia is a region in the South Caucasus, formerly the South Ossetian Autonomous Oblast within the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic. A part of it has been de facto independent from Georgia since it declared independence[1] as the Republic of South Ossetia early in the 1990s during the Georgian-Ossetian conflict. The capital of the region is Tskhinvali.

The independence has not been diplomatically recognized by any member of the United Nations – which continues to regard South Ossetia as part of Georgia [Source]

In other words, when Georgia declared its independence in 1991 South Ossetia and Abkhazia did the same. Abkhazia and South Ossetia made it clear that they did not consider themselves part of Georgia or the Russian Republic. The existed as default autonomous regions until the US back government of Mikheil Saakashvili following Eduard Shevardnadze.

receiving a fellowship from the United States State Department (via the Edmund S. Muskie/FREEDOM Support Act (FSA) Graduate Fellowship Program).

He received an LLM from Columbia Law School in 1994 and took classes at The George Washington University Law School the following year. In 1995, he also received a diploma from the International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France.
After graduation, while on internship in the New York law firm of Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler in early 1995, Saakashvili was approached by Zurab Zhvania, an old friend from Georgia who was working on behalf of President Eduard Shevardnadze to recruit talented young Georgians to enter politics.

In January 2000, Saakashvili was appointed Vice-President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

Saakashvili founded the United National Movement (UNM) in October 2001, a left-of-center political party akin to the Social Democrats in Europe with a touch of nationalism, to provide a focus for part of the Georgian reformists leaders. In June 2002, he was elected as the Chairman of the Tbilisi Assembly ("Sakrebulo") following an agreement between the United National Movement and the Georgian Labour Party. This gave him a powerful new platform from which to criticize the government.

Georgia held parliamentary elections on November 2, 2003 which were denounced by local and international observers as being grossly rigged. Saakashvilli claimed that he had won the elections (a claim supported by independent exit polls), and urged Georgians to demonstrate against Shevardnadze's government and engage in nonviolent civil disobedience against the authorities. Saakashvili's UNM and Burdjanadze-Democrats united to demand the ouster of Shevardnadze and the rerun of the elections.

On January 4, 2004 Mikheil Saakashvili won the presidential elections in Georgia with more than 96% of the votes cast, making him the youngest national president in Europe. Saakashvili ran on a platform of opposing corruption and improving pay and pensions. He has promised to improve relations with the outside world. Although he is strongly pro-Western and intends to seek Georgian membership of NATO and the European Union, he has also spoken of the importance of better relations with Russia. He faces major problems, however, particularly Georgia's difficult economic situation and the still unresolved question of separatism in the regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Abkhazia regards itself as independent of Georgia and did not take part in the elections, while South Ossetia favours union with its northern counterpart in Russia. [Source]
Saakashvili Chewing Over the Implications of His Attack on Russia!

Admittedly the history of this region is long and confusing however what is abundantly clear is that the people of South Ossetia and Abkhazia have never considered themselves to be part of Georgia.

When the US South formed the Confederacy they formally announced their intention to leave the Union for various reasons (of which slavery was but one). South Ossetia and Abkhazia however were NEVER part of the Republic of Georgia as even the BBC acknowledges below.

If there is a slight parallel to US history it is seen when the US broke away from English rule and tried to force Canada to join their union. Canada refused and kicked the US out of their region. South Ossetia and Abkhazia has been trying to kick Georgia out ever since declaring their independence from Russia and since the fall of the Soviet Union they have asserted their political and cultural independence from Georgia as even the official BBC time line makes clear. That time line shows, in part, the following events:

1991 - Georgian parliament declares secession from the Soviet Union after independence is overwhelmingly supported in a referendum.

Wounded supporters of Zviad Gamsakhurdia
Clashes in Tbilisi preceded the coup that ousted Gamsakhurdia

Gamsakhurdia is elected president by more than 85% of the votes cast.

1992 January - Gamsakhurdia is deposed after fighting in central Tbilisi between government troops and opposition militias.

South Ossetians vote in favour of independence in an unrecognized referendum.

[Right from the beginning South Ossetia demanded and asserted their independence from Georgia!! Unfortunately the NWO United Nations had other plans and refused to recognize their independence]

1992 August - Fighting breaks out in Abkhazia between Georgian government troops and separatist forces.

[Again Abkhazia assert their independence from Georgia as well right form the beginning of the Georgian Republic]

1993 September - Georgian troops driven out of Abkhazia by separatist forces.

2001 March - Georgia and the separatist region of Abkhazia sign an accord pledging not to use force against each other.

[Both governments thereby acknowledge they are not one country. Abkhazia is recognized as an autonomous region. None of this mess would have occurred had the UN merely recognized the claims of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.]

2001 October - Clashes in Abkhazia between Abkhaz troops and Georgian paramilitaries backed by fighters from the North Caucasus. The tension is heightened as Russia accuses Georgia of harbouring Chechen rebels, a charge dismissed by Georgia.

2002 April/May - US special forces arrive to train and equip Georgian forces for counterterrorist operations.

[The US begins seriously usurping control of Georgia and domination of the region.]

2003 May - Work begins on laying Georgian section of oil pipeline to run from Baku in Azerbaijan through Georgia to Ceyhan in Turkey.

[A main reason for the US presence in the region]

2003 November - Shevardnadze is toppled in a bloodless "Rose Revolution" triggered by opposition allegations of irregularities in parliamentary elections.

2004 January - Mikhail Saakashvili wins presidential election.

[Georgia become a puppet nation of the US/NWO.]

2004 March - Amid rising tension with the leadership of the autonomous region of Ajaria, Tbilisi briefly imposes sanctions and closes the border.

[The Autonomous Republic of Adjara or Acara is yet another of these regions whose independence was denied but that was unofficially rcognized. Again the failure to formally establish the indepence of these areas is what led to the current confusion].

2004 May - Ajarian leader Aslan Abashidze claims Georgian forces about to invade and blows up bridges connecting the region with the rest of Georgia.

President Saakashvili orders Mr Abashidze to comply with Georgian constitution and disarm his forces or face removal.

Aslan Abashidze resigns and leaves Georgia.

[Now under US guidance Georgia flexes its muscles and seeks to establish control over the autonomous regions against their will. These regions were states or terrorities of Georgia but autonomous self ruling regions.]

2004 May - South Ossetia holds parliamentary elections, unrecognised by Tbilisi.

[South Ossetia still considered itself independent and even though the UN never officially recognized this, their defacto autonomy, complete with elections, had been unofficially recognized since the fall of the Soviet Union. South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Adjara were not part of Georgia and Georgia's actions against them make this obvious.]

2004 June - Georgia's decision to beef up its anti-smuggling operation in South Ossetia prompts sharp a response from the local leadership and is criticized by Russia.

[US/Georgia justify their anti-freedom imperial actions with a fake drug and smuggling war. The US used a similar so-called war on drugs to justify civil rights violations in the US as well. Both South Ossetia and Russia decried the assault on South Ossetia and its freedom]

2004 August - Several deaths are reported in clashes between Georgian and South Ossetian forces. After saying it has captured key positions which it promises to hand over to joint peacekeepers, Georgia pulls back its forces.

[South Ossetia resists Georgian incursions and interferences into their autonomous region. Georgia yeilded, again demonstrating South Ossetian independence.]

2004 August - Several deaths are reported in clashes between Georgian and South Ossetian forces. After saying it has captured key positions which it promises to hand over to joint peacekeepers, Georgia pulls back its forces.

[Abkhazia demands that they are still independent and hold elections as a free people.]

2004 Georgian President Saakashvili unveils proposals on autonomy within Georgia for South Ossetia whose leadership rejects them, repeating demand for full independence. Georgian leader says similar proposals can only be considered for Abkhazia if Georgian refugees who fled fighting in 1993 are allowed to return.

[Yet again, the US puppet nation of Georgia seeks to incorporate South Ossetia, promising them semi-independence. They wisely rejected this on the grounds that they were already an independent country, recognized or not. These proposals would have created a realationship similiar to the tribal lands in the US. While we speak of "Indian Nations" these reservations remain firmly under US control. South Ossetians would accept nothing less than complete recognized independence as they had demanded from the very beginning.]

2005 February - Three police officers killed by car bomb in Gori, west of Tbilisi and close to South Ossetia.

Georgian Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania is found dead in a Tbilisi flat, apparently from gas poisoning. Zurab Noghaideli, hitherto finance minister, becomes premier.

2005 May - Large crowds in Tbilisi greet President George W Bush, the first US leader to visit Georgia, who proclaims the country a "beacon of liberty".

Georgian policeman and four Ossetians killed in shooting incident in South Ossetia

2006 November - South Ossetians vote in favour of independence in an unrecognised referendum.

2007 September - Former defence minister Irakli Okruashvili accuses Mr Saakashvili of corruption and plotting a murder. The allegations spark a wave of protests.

2007 November - State of emergency declared. Riot police battle protesters demanding president's resignation.

Russia says it has withdrawn last troops based in Georgia since 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, but retains a presence in the breakaway provinces.

[Russian maintains ties to the autonomous areas in accordance with local wishes as South Ossetia and Abkhazia continue to work for the recognition of their independence.

2007 December - Human Rights Watch criticises the Georgian government for using "excessive" force against protesters in November. International Crisis Group warns of growing authoritarianism.

2008 January - Saakashvili re-elected in snap election.

2008 March - Separatist government in Abkhazia asks United Nations to recognise independence.

[Again the Abkhazians want to be recognized as an inpendent nation and their request is refused by the NWO UN.]

2008 April - NATO summit in Bucharest defers decision on Georgia's application to join Membership Programme until December.

2008 April - Russia says it will step up ties with Abkhazia and South Ossetia, prompting Georgia to accuse Moscow of planning the republics' "de facto annexation".

[See the direct correlation here? The NATO threat against Russia and the ongoing refusal of the UN to accept the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia is the key to this situation. Add to this Poland's decision to allow the US to threaten Russia with nukes from Polish territory and the situation becomes utterly explosive.

NATO is trying to enslave South Ossetia and Abkhazia against their wills by making them submit to Georgia, and the US is deeply involved in this refusal to recognize the independence of the regions for their own nefarious purposes.]

2008 May - Ruling party wins landslide victory in parliamentary election. Opposition says election was rigged and threatens to boycott new parliament.

[Just like the US rigged presidential election but here the Congress are also traitors so they embraced the establishment of the Bush coup instead of opposing it.]

Russia sends 300 unarmed troops to Abkhazia, saying they are needed for railway repairs. Georgia accuses Russia of planning military intervention. Russia AND the people of South Ossetia say the Russian presence is for humantraian reasons including the protection of civilians who are being routinely murdered by the US/Georgian government of Saakashvili

2008 June - Abkhazia cuts all contact with Georgian government, accusing it of being behind recent series of blasts in "breakaway republic." Georgia denies having any role of course.

[Georgia is the aggressor, not Russia according to both the Abkhazians and the South Ossetians.

According to one solid news source:

Tekhova, whose 18-year-old son stayed in Tskhinvali, is one of at least 100,000 people the United Nations says have been displaced since Aug. 7, when residents said Georgian forces started shelling the city. Russia deployed tanks, troops and warplanes to oust Georgia's military the next day.

Georgia says South Ossetia and Abkhazia, another disputed area, are now ``occupied territories.'' Both places, where most people are Russian citizens, declared independence and fought Georgian forces as the Soviet Union unraveled in the early 1990s. North Ossetia has absorbed most of the refugees.

In downtown Tskhinvali yesterday, many buildings were blackened and charred. Cars drove by with shattered windows. Local news reports put the civilian death toll at 1,600....

As I show elsewhere on this site, GEORGIA invaded South Ossetia and initially murdered around 1800 unarmed civilians and leveled Tskhinvali. At an attempt to both defend the civilian population and void war Russian troops entered.

This was obviously a false flag event by a corrupt globalist puppet leader with NWO aspirations. The only question is what the Elite hope to accomplish by it and they plan to do next.

The United States is aiding Georgia in imprisoning the people of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, provoking Russia into a global nuclear war and the US Media is focusing on a story about a faked Big Foot!

Wake Up And Smell The Treason!
