Resolved Question: Russia Vs. Georgia! Help
I'm doing a debate in my law class and I am on Russia's side. I don't have time to explain the full conflict between them, so if you already know something about this then it would be VERY helpful if you provided websites/books/magazines/ articles/ or your own knowledge.
I know that the Georgian President is sort of rash and volatile. Is there any past invasions, or instances in which Georgia was in the wrong to invade... ?
BASICALLY I NEED points proving that
A) Russa was not in the wrong to engage in conflict with Georgia
B) Is there an International Law violation?
I'm arguing the perspective of Russia. So please help :)

civillian casualities was about 2000 mainly by caused by Georgians.
Bush make us sound like a paper tiger with fruitless threats,
Dick wants more war? With Russia?...we are only known to attack third world countries and lose!
Obama jumps on the bandwagon...deploring Russia.
Mccain says "We are all georgians"....not me
Do these people know foreign politics or are most just believe whatever they say since Georgians, with the help and assistance (military hardware etc.) from the USA and Israeli's caused Russia to react.
