        It certainly did not re-define the word invasion, nor did it define a new international border.

          "The June 1992 agreement also created trilateral Joint Peacekeeping Forces (JPKF), with Georgian, Russian and Ossetian units.33 The JPKF was mandated to restore peace and maintain law and order in the zone of conflict and security corridor, as well as in districts and villages not in the zone of conflict.34 It was additionally tasked to monitor provisions of the
          ceasefire agreement and take decisive measures,
          including the use of arms, in case of violations of JCC decisions by any uncontrolled armed formations of a party. "

          •  I guess I'm missing something. (0+ / 0-)

            Did the agreement create a new, independent nation, with an international border?

            I'm not saying that Georgia didn't violate the cease-fire agreement.

            •  OK lets describe it annother way (0+ / 0-)

              Germany has signed an international agreement not to move Troops into Rhineland.

              1935 Hitler moves troops into Rhineland and breaks agreement.

              conventional wisdom now says France should have moved in and stopped him, but did not, (well they were French and had only lost 1,000,000 dead last time they had a war, but we like criticising other countries for doing what we are not willing to do ourselves).

              Georgia has signed international agreement to not have troops except a lightly armed 500 contribution to a joint peacekeeping force in South Ossetia.

              2008 Georgia moves large numbers of Troops into to South Ossetia.

              Russia moves to stop them.

              Everyone condems Russia.

              lots of differences of course but life is not simple, black and white.
