Always relevant to keep in mind is this breakaway province of China has no UN recognition.

Always relevant to keep in mind that while it considers Taiwan a part of China, it is ambiguous about defending Taiwan if China tries to use force.

This effectively makes Taiwan an independent nation.

Love how a copy of an AMERICAN law is deemed 'the Russian law' and a threat to democracy by the American government.

I don't think you read the article. It isn't a copy of an American law. It is a copy of a Russian law:

Georgia’s president on Saturday vetoed the so-called “Russian law” targeting media that has sparked weeks of mass protests.

Russia is also building a naval base in Abkhazia at Ochamchire.

So, they can forget about joining the EU anytime soon.

Putin: the leach on ex-Soviet nations' progress and prosperity.

We need to keep supporting Ukraine so that Putin can't pollute and infect the Baltic states.

Georgians will decide themselves at the next ballot.

Looking at the protests to the law, she will be elected in a landslide.

How many are protesting out of Georgia's total population?

Have you seen the photos? The numbers are staggering.

As I said Georgians will elect whomever they think is best for the country. It is up to them, not the west.

As I said, yes it is up to them, the will pick her again based on this veto.

They choose pro West.

You were appointed a spokesman for all Georgians ? Must have missed the announcement.

I never said I was. I'm just telling you the overwhelming sentiment of everyday Georgians.

They are.

Evidence please.

And besides, the law is quite similar to the one US

It's nowhere close. It's the same as the Russian law, which Putin uses to silence whichever media and groups he wants without recourse. That is why it is so unpopular.

If the NGO,s have nothing to hide then they have nothing to fear from the law, do they.

That's rather naive. If NGO's have nothing to hide, they can still be silenced. Proof is in how the law is used in Russia.

They will override the veto as there is no wish to go through and become the next Ukraine.

Ukraine is the next Georgia. Russia has already annexed parts of Georgia as part of Putin's imperialism in 2008. Same playbook.

Everyone knows the NED and others are behind these rent-a-mobs.

These aren't rent a mobs, but your Russian handlers will be pleased with your misinformation.

it is important for Georgians to ensure anti-Russia Presidents are always elected.

It is important for Georgians to elect a president who has Georgia's best interests at heart, not the west interests.

Everyday Georgians see these as the same. They want to be EU/west leaning and benefit from economic prosperity because it that.

Georgians will decide themselves at the next ballot.

Looking at the protests to the law, she will be elected in a landslide.

Whether the next President is pro Russia or pro West is up to them.

They choose pro West.

Western intelligence should stop interfering and formenting unrest.

They aren't. That's what Russia is trying to do with this law.

You are confusing politics with justice. The witness is part of the trial. He isn't part of the election.

The polling is not favourable for Joe Biden campaign.

I wouldn't put much stock into them.

A person being extorted is commonly known as "a victim".

Cohen said on the stand he thought Daniels was extorting Trump. That would make him a victim.

Doesn't matter who it is or how much you disdain the person, a victim of extortion is exactly that.

Yup. He's been a victim his whole life.

Cohen is a proven convicted perjurer, his testimony as a witness has to reflect his foreswearing false oath.

This fact is on record.

Who cares? He's just a witness. We knew that before.

The prosecution have had many witnesses and documents that tell the story of this case.

Oh, but at the same time a sitting president should not be able to use the law to persecute someone purely for political purposes.

Judge Jesse M. Furman in Manhattan questioned Cohen’s truthfulness in a written order denying his request for early release from the court supervision that followed his three-year prison sentence for crimes including tax evasion, lying to banks and Congress, and violating campaign finance laws.

Wait there is more....

 On the witness stand, Cohen insisted he wasn’t actually guilty of tax evasion even though he pleaded guilty to the charge in 2018. Asked if he had lied to the federal judge who accepted his guilty plea, Cohen said, “Yes.”

“Cohen repeatedly and unambiguously testified at the state court trial that he was not guilty of tax evasion and that he had lied under oath” to the late Judge William H. Pauley III, Furman wrote.

The prosecution star witness was born with a fork tongue....

So what? He's a witness. The defence can cross examine him.

Such an unprecedented scenario will further the accusation that this is Joe Bidens democrats last and perhaps only resort, to imprison his main contender.

Still no evidence that this is remotely true.

Please spare me any suggestion this gross "show trial" display of a frivolous abuse of the US justice system can be justified.

I think you have to come up with evidence that it is a frivolous abuse of the US justice system first.

And if you can't find that, then you would have to assume that it isn't.

Most seems accurate here, if a little behind unfolding events.
