2008 South Ossetia war

From DYOS Wiki

The 2008 South Ossetia War was a war fought in 2008 in South Ossetia. Georgia righteously defended itself from the evil Russia led by Josef Stalin Vladimir Putin, and the two republics of South Ossetia and Abhzakia, who are de facto independent, but screw them, we say they're a part of Georgia. The response to this invasion was minimal, as everyone cared too much about the Olympics to pay any attention. Also, America's legendary lack of geographic knowledge made them look to the state of Georgia, rather than the Republic in the Caucausus, saw "Hey, no Russians. Mission Accomplished!" and wondered what the hell everyone was talking about from that point on.
