Georgia War: World Record in Genocide?

LJ user tulskiy reflects (RUS) on the 2,000 Ossetians that Russia claims Georgia killed as an act of genocide during recent conflict, puts the figure in proportion to the entire South Ossetian population, making it so unreasonably large that – if Russian claims are correct – it would constitute the fastest genocide in history – allegedly surpassing the Nazi concentration camps in efficiency. He concludes with a hope that figures are wrong, and if correct, such an event will neither be repeated in Abkhasia or ever elsewhere.
