President of Georgia hiding under peacemaker’s mask2010-12-28 15:11
Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili has again set about his favourite business of slandering Russia. He has no match here; he seems to handle this task much better than that of ruling the country. Of course, Mikheil Nikolozovitch could not but pay attention to the tragic events in Manezhnaya Square in Moscow and the nationalistic actions that followed Russia-wide. In the opinion of the Georgian president, the radicals' actions are the result of the Russian authorities' policy aimed at "squeezing Caucasians" from their territory.
He also managed to associate the burst of national sentiments with the events that happened in August 2008 in South Ossetia and were induced by Saakashvili. He also added the following: "One should better give up illusions. The war 2008 was never restricted. It was the sequel of the events of 2006 when Georgians and other Caucasians were evicted from various Russian regions. We understood everything very well in 2008, while today's events are the links of the same chain, which is clearly arranged. In fact, the genie has already been let out of the lamp. He is gradually taking appalling shapes, which is very easy to encourage", - Saakashvili stated in his interview to Azerbaijani journalists.
That's it. A man who has ruined his own country and who is overtly supporting the nationalistic line of his predecessors' policy starts talking of national minorities' rights. I wonder what kind of reaction from the Abkhaz and Ossetians his speech produced, especially those who personally experienced "tolerance a-la Tbilisi" in August 2008. However, the point is not the previous deeds of the Georgian president. Ultimately, if any decent idea is uttered by some scoundrel it does not lose its truthfulness. Another point is that Mikheil Saakashvili commits open forgery by accusing Russian society of the hatred of the Caucasians.
Generally speaking, the very notion of "the Caucasians" embraces the communities so much different that its use may instantly bring any discussion about national and ethnic problems to purely declarative level. Just try to unite an Ingush with an Ossetian, or an Azerbaijani with an Armenian; these are the brightest examples.
However, Georgian president does not seem to be embarrassed at all. He has long rejected the necessity of being responsible for what he says and does, immediately hiding behind his western patrons' backs if need be. Saakashvili is simply trying to harm Russia with every single phrase he utters. In this particular interview, he purposefully conceals the fact that the nationalistic actions held in Russia originated from the conflicts, which most Caucasian population has got nothing to do with. The more so, as Saakashvili conceals Russia's outrage at the attempts of some instigators to play the card of interethnic discrepancies. If we take him seriously, each citizen of RF living northwards of Pyatigorsk is a downright skinhead starting his morning with beating up several Caucasian children who are to be saved only by the good Uncle Misha.
However, Saakashvili has been trying to image himself as a patron of the North-Caucasian nations with the obstinacy of a woodpecker interbred with a donkey. For instance, let's take the introduction of a visa-free regime for the people in the region, or his attempts to take some peoples in the North Caucasus, the Circassians and the Didos, under protection. It makes no great difference for him that all these actions yielded no result, creating a mixed feeling of contempt and pity. Still, it doesn't hurt to try, especially that the financial consequences of these "efforts" will anyway be paid for by the people of Georgia.
