Someone, whom as Bush Said, he has stared into their soul.
RT: Immediately after Kosovo’s independence was recognised, Moscow said this could become a precedent for South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Today, you made a decision to support these republics’ independence. Why did Russia do it? Does this square with international law?What Clearer a Message could american ask for with regards to transitioning Iraq into a Free Republic within the Presidential Feifdom system - in which certain lands are set apart to be the special properties of the president, where he is freed from the nagging doubt of the evil liberal media and people who have not accepted the Divinity of Dubya, and the Growing Newer New World Order....
Medvedev: I'll start with your second question. This is fully in line with international law. When the case of Kosovo arose, my colleagues said this was a special case, or, as experts in international affairs say, casus sui generis. Well, each case of such recognition is a special case. The situation in Kosovo was special, and the situation in South Ossetia and Abkhazia is special as well.
In our situation, it is quite obvious that we made this decision in order to prevent genocide and annihilation of these peoples, and to help them to come to their feet. These unrecognised republics have been struggling for their independence for seventeen years now. Despite all attempts by the international community, no progress was made during this time. Until just recently, we tried to help restore the state unite of Georgia. However, it didn’t work.
The decision to launch an aggression buried all hopes of achieving an agreement. Thus, under current circumstances, the only way to preserve these peoples is to recognise them as subjects of international law, to recognize their state independence.
That is why our decision is fully in line with international law, the UN Charter, Helsinki declarations and other international documents.

Hopefully NOW all will be set right, and everyone will understand that the President has always been right.
Only by allowing the President certain special fiefdoms where special things are special can the world be kept in balance, when there is a need to do special things...
