I remember my late senator John McCain making his ridiculous statement in 2008 that, "We're all Georgians now" in response to the criminal attack on South Ossetia by then Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili. While some US citizens, Arizonans in particular, were indignant, in South Ossetia, people died.
The world community is now witnessing the desperation and death throes of the uni-polar world order. Now that the implosion of that order is accelerating, the dust is being now shaken off of geopolitical hot points or hatchets such as Georgia.

·International forum of Orthodox States in Georgia disrupted.
·Poroshenko's Orthodox schism falls apart
·Plans to visit the Georgian US bio-weapon lab: Lugar Center, being formulated
·Putin bans Russian flights carrying Russian citizens to Georgia from July 8
I'm not inclined to believe in coincidence. The timing of events is suspect.
Since the Georgian government continues in it's inability to act independently of western meddling, the impetus for reform will now be felt directly by its citizens. This is a foreshadow of what's to come for citizens of other western-leaning and western nations, including my own USA, which fail to maintain governments willing to behave as normal nations in the new multi-polar reality. In addition to protecting Russian citizens, the blockage of Russian flights to Georgia is an example of this.
Hope for western governments to behave reasonably has run out. Appeals for reasonable government behavior will now being made directly to citizens of rogue states by way of economic pressure.
