In the Name of Tibet and Kosovo, Give Up on Abkhazia

It's called self-determination. People have a fundamental right to choose their form of government. As far as I can tell, the people of Abkhazia and South Ossetia strongly prefer independence or possibly absorption into Russia, rather than continued Georgian rule. There is no issue. It may be necessary to draw a line in the sand with Russia. Ukraine may be the place. Abkhazia isn't.
