Georgia vs. Ossetia
I haven't been able to figure out why Georgia doesn't want to let South Ossetia be independent (or part of North Ossetia in Russia). But I guess I've never understood it in Taiwan or even The South during the Civil War.
It seems to me that if a bunch of people living in a certain area want to claim to be their own country or part of another, why shouldn't they be allowed to?
