Dr. Goebbels’ ideological offspring and his American show

2010-09-27 11:23

8033.jpegThe head of the Georgian state is back to what he does better than trying to reform Georgia's unsound economy: bragging about and tattling. New fairy tales were heard from the stand of the UN General Assembly unfortunate to become Mikheil Saakashvili's propaganda trumpet. As usual, his speech was meant to make history in the demagogical science. Still, there was nothing new in what he was saying. Well, at least he didn't start asking alms - what progress!


However, there was a moment when Saakashvili got carried away bringing up the topic he, in all fairness, should abandon forever - Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Though, the notion of fairness is incompatible with Georgia's current president that's why Abkhazians and Ossetians will have to hear Mishiko's speeches dedicated to them more than once.

"My first call is addressed to my fellow citizens of Abkhaz and Ossetian origins who live behind the New Iron Curtain that divides our common nation. I want to tell them once again: we will protect your rights, your culture, your history-we will work with you, we will work for you. You are part of a common history, a common culture, and a common future. Your differences enrich our proud national tapestry, - the president of Georgia said. - I dream about the day when an Abkhaz or Ossetian citizen of Georgia - as it happened several times in our common history - will become President of a reunited, democratic and European Georgia.

We all could see exactly how Mikheil Saakashvili was going to make his dreams come true in August 2008. Does he really believe that after the barbarian attack on Tskhinval, a short bloody episode in a long history of chauvinism and humiliation, the nations of two republics will rush into Tbilisi's embrace? No, Mishiko is too cunning and pragmatic. In reality, he does not want Abkhazia and South Ossetia as part of Georgia any more. He fails to manage what he is left with drawing his country still nearer to the economic collapse.

No, this is not what Sakartvelo's current ruler thinks about. He adores the warmth of big Washington wings as well as bodies of his female favorites filling Georgia's ministries and departments. Why complicate his living with strange political enigmas? But to keep the financial rain, now getting scarce on the dried up Georgian soil, from stopping, the show must go on.  This time Mishiko was sited perfectly - on the the UN General Assembly's stand. World, here I am, - a democrat, a reformer and a peace maker!

There is some mismatch, though. Firstly, the Western community is gradually losing interest in Georgia like successful families do with their hard-drinking relatives: sorry to leave but shameful in front of neighbors. Besides, silver spoons disappear from the house.

Secondly, Saakashvili must be more specific about his attitude to Abkhazians and Ossetians. Mikheil Nikolozovich, you either stop calling both nations to friendship or stop using this mean euphemism "Tskhinvali region" invented by your political strategists. The next step will be "Tskhinvalians" instead of "Ossetians". However, Abkhazia and South Ossetia stopped listening to Saakashvili's speeches long ago, even before August 7 2008 when the Georgian leader was boldly lying about peace and friendship ordering to shell the peaceful town.

Manana Gurgulia, a well-known public figure, head of Abkhazia's state news agency Apsnypress, agrees that the Georgian president's speech at the UN General Assembly is sheer propaganda. She says Saakashvili is using the stand to deliver his own vision of the situation in the region. "After all that took place between Georgia and Ossetia, it seems highly doubtful that with current leaders in Georgia our nations might start talks", - he told in an interview with GeorgiaTimes correspondent.

As Manana Gurgulia thinks Tbilisi's latest initiatives toward Abkhazia and South Ossetia won't make the situation any better. "The law on occupied territories as well as other documents so eagerly disseminated by Saakashvili and his minister Yakobashvili do not facilitate resumption of talks in any way", - she emphasized.
