No Saakashvili – one trouble less to Obama

2010-10-06 10:35

8447.jpegOn October 5 the closing session on US-Georgia strategic charter was started in Washington. As deputy Georgian FM Nino Kalandadze stated, during the talks the Georgian and US sides will focus on cooperation in four spheres: democracy, trade, economy and relations between people. With all due respect to representatives of official Tbilisi that were given a chance to stay in Washington for a week, there is an impression that the above mentioned subjects under the strategic charter will be discussed one-sidedly. To have a full-scale discussion of all these spheres the Georgian delegation must be much broader.


For instance, Georgian opposition would describe notorious democratic reforms in Georgia to Saakashvili's US allies as best as possible mentioning demonstrations of opponents to the current regime violently dispersed by the police, as well as dozens of political prisoners rotting in jails, and Mikheil Saakashvili's attempt to be granted life-long powers of the head of the state with the help of merciless amendments to the Constitution. Imedi channel viewers would speak about the freedom of speech in Sakartvelo. Particularly those who had to call doctors immediately after the program featuring the Russian army's imaginary attack on Georgia.

Georgian stores would tell about the country's economy in a most comprehensive manner. However, they should first recover from an unpleasant shock caused by a drastic rise in prices for essential and non-essential goods. Losing practically all chances of investing at home with billionth infusions from European, Asian, US and even African businesses starting soon, Georgian business people would "praise" Vera Kobalia in charge of the Economy Ministry. "Nepotism" and protection racket are openly reigning in Georgia's economic life. Kobalia, for example, took so much to these methods that, now well at ease in her present position, she is not afraid of openly raiding private businesses. The fact that Mamia Sanadiradze, owner of Georgia's largest Internet provider Caucasus Online, and his family had to flee to London to escape the economy minister's sharp claws just proves this. 

Georgian officials that in August were prowling about the ex CIS in search of wheat with the eagerness of a bloodhound to make up for the loss of the Russian market and prevent starvelings' revolts in the country would make a detailed speech on trading relations between the Rose revolution country and the rest of the world . Representatives of the country's customs service would be glad to join them undermining optimistic reports by the country leaders on growing trade turnover with different international partners. The figures are growing, indeed. But will Washington acknowledge that this growth is accounted for imports of all kinds of goods provided with US financial aid to Tbilisi, among other things?

As for "relationships between people" they should be shouted, not told about. No doubt Tskhinval citizens who survived a barbarous shelling would be most eloquent about the nationalist policies of Georgia's current regime comparable with a roll of sand paper for their "kindness". Most probably, representatives of practically all national minorities in Sakartvelo would support them. No wonder: the Georgian authorities' latest activities toward non-title population look very much like the start of large-scale ethnic cleansings.
