There are a host of international laws, in addition to good common sense, that rightly argue against accepting or tacitly supporting occupation of another sovereign country. Should internationally recognized boundaries fail to be enforced, a dangerous precedent will be set that would call all international boundaries into question, with a further precedent being set that a seeming popular uprising packaged for tv is reason enough to support such violations, especially when backed by superior military might of the invading country. Smaller, less militarily strong countries around the world would certainly correctly feel at risk, and the seeding of certain nationalities into such states to create an argument for 'protecting' them by aggression states would become increasingly acceptable policy. There are legal means to dismantle a state, wholly or in part. Military aggression is not one of them.
