Georgia on my mind

The BBC reported on the first anniversary of the Russian invasion of Georgia a year ago quite reasonably, unlike some of its reports last year. A great many ethnic Georgians, getting on for 150,000, remain displaced, and it appears that ethnic South Ossetians who fled to Russia have been sent back. Please remember that South Ossetia asked to secede from Georgia (which it can do under Georgia's constitution) and join Russia - which refused. So what did Russia invade for?
