Vashadze to teach Egypt democracy in hand-waving terms

2011-03-02 21:29

14139.jpegGeorgian FM Grigol Vashadze is planning to visit Egypt no more governed by overthrown dictator Hosni Mubarak. Today the head of Georgian ministry of foreign affairs will present an elementary explanation for the "insurgents" how democracy must be built, with what feeling its flag must be carried and what advice may be useful on this difficult path. When teaching Egypt is completed Vashadze will pay a visit to Slovakia to take part in global security creation and development of Eastern Partnership.


Naturally, Slovakia will wait. With preparations for the 6th international forum on global security underway and the agenda as well as Solvakia's plans for the future in preparation, Mr. Vashadze arrives in Egypt. His deputy Nino Kalandadze is sure that Georgians have a lot to offer to the League of Arab States. She willingly comments on this strange trip thinking that with the minister's visit Georgia will gain points in the international arena through Georgia's more active participation in various geopolitical projects.

"Grigol Vashadze is ready to share his experience and give advice about the ways to pass from the current situation to democratization", - Mrs. Kalandadze emphasized diplomatically omitting that even those who have vague notions about the state in South Caucasus are sick and tired of Georgia. Isn't it convenient to take advantage of self-esteem of European countries that believe it indecent to openly say to official Tbilisi that Georgian leaders have lost all honor going far over the line?

Last week EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton promised that the European Union will help Cairo to embark on the course of development and economic recovery. For instance, to relieve Egypt from debt liabilities in exchange for democracy. The government of the Caucasian republic adopted a flash-like decision to change their tactics toward rebellious states. 

However, late in January Georgia called on its citizens to stop going to Egyptian holiday resorts and refrain from making photos or video recordings of massive revolts and protest rallies. This non-linear behavior of the Georgian government is easily explained. Not knowing the outcome, Mikheil Saakashvili and his teammates were concerned that Egyptian sentiment might awake echo in the hearts of Georgians.  

In the meantime, Georgian society was greatly interested in the revolution in far-away Africa. Even government-controlled mass media had to include news from Cairo in the broadcast of president's annual report in parliament.

Naturally, the scenario of a political coup like in many countries of North Africa and Middle East horrifies "the father of nations". Now that Hosni Mubarak has fled Egypt that wants to follow democratic postulates of advanced counties, the "beacon of democracy" is ashamed of being on the sidelines. And Mishiko has already made parallels between events in Egypt and the Rose Revolution in Georgia in 2003. Apparently, Georgia has as much in common with Egypt as Hu Tsintao with Angela Merkel. 

Only one thing is still puzzling. Does Mr. Saakashvili really understand the danger of this situation in the far-away continent that jeopardizes the entire system of global rule of law? Or does he naively believe that he became president as a result of a bloodless political coup to preach liberalism? US administration that launched expansion of democracy in mentally different countries has made a serious mistake.
