  •  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.
