  • Russia signs major alliance treaty with South Ossetia, pledges military protection

    The presidents of Russia and South Ossetia have signed a key treaty according to which the two nations will partially join their military forces, and Russia will provide full military protection to its ally.

    The treaty introducing the collective security principle was signed by Vladimir Putin and Leonid Tibilov on Wednesday, after the two presidents held talks in Moscow.

    How's that a *major* military alliance ?

    NATO is a major military alliance or the Ribbentrop/Molotov pact,

    South Ossetia sounds more like another "dog given away while the fat kid went on vacation", where is it ?

        R/M wasn't an alliance.

        Don't underestimate South Ossetia. Georgians paid for this two times.

            To join Russia ? Maybe in the future.

              They paid for underestimating Russia's response. Don't pretend the Ossetians did any of this on their own.

                First war didn't any signifiant Russian involvement. In second, they stopped the Georgian offensive on Tskhinvalli. Saakshhvili is just an idiot who believed that he will get no response after attacking Russian peacekeepers.

                  So the story spins now like "South Ossetians were brutally kidnapped from their loving Georgian brothers", right?

                    Not at all. It's nothing like Crimea. Novorossiya and Transnistria are much better comparisons. Ethnic Russian rebels armed, funded and instigated by Russia eventually backed up by the Russian military directly. The playbook has started to get a bit predictable.

                      Ossetians are ethnic Russians?
                      Transnistrian population are 1/3 Russians, 1/3 Ukrainians and 1/3 Moldavians.

                          Do you think he will try to be an ethical and decent person, and apologise or at least say "I stand corrected"? My bet is he will follow the usual routine of our Western "friends" - burp out some BS, and if it gets disproved, just ignore it and then burp out more BS. Rinse and repeat.

                            The problem is assumptions like that are not only made by random internet posters and treated as truth, but also shape reporting and policy.
