Some things never change
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, August 16, 2008

Dale hit you with a bit of historical analysis yesterday from Sir Edward Creasy concerning Russia.

I'll follow that up with a short entry from the Sept. 16, 1924 edition of the Times of London:
The special Georgian delegation at present in Geneva reports that the rising against the Bolsheviks is now general in the Caucasus. The important tunnel of Souran, on the Tiflis-Batum line, has been blown up, and the Bolshevist troops are retreating in disorder. A provisional Georgian government has been established at Kutais, and general mobilization decreed. The movement is regarded here is more than a mere rising. It is considered to be a war of independence on the part of both Georgia and Azerbaijan. M. Jordania, the president of the Georgian Republic, has made an appeal to the League, and sympathetic reference to his country's efforts were made by M Paul Boncour in the assembly. But it is realized that the League is incapable of rendering material aid, and that the moral influence which may be a powerful force with civilized country's is unlikely to make any impression on Soviet Russia.
Of course the "League" referenced is the League of Nations, not the UN or NATO. However the result is pretty much the same. And the last part of the sentence remains as true today, it appears, as it did in 1924 - or 1852.
