Here's some background on the South Ossetia, Georgia and Russian conflict.
The "South" Ossetes originally crossed the mountains to escape the Mongol hordes in the 1200s.
It seems that Russia has North Ossetia and Georgia as South Ossetia. Russia is willing to cooperate with the North and South getting together to form their own country but Georgia is not cooperating. Regardless of history, it seems the Georgians are in the wrong here. They should cooperate with North Ossetia and South Ossetia forming their own country. Am I wrong?
