Saakashvili the Villain disappointed his teacher2011-03-29 23:14
Mikhail Saakashvili is ill-bred. That is the opinion of his predecessor Eduard Shevardnadze who lost office in the "rose" revolution. After his resignation, the Georgian politician liked to give advice to the young generation on how to rule the country and who to make friends with. Now Shevardnadze has sadly stated that the precious lessons were neglected by Mishiko. He causes a lot of doubts as a ruler and his strained relationship with American leader Barack Obama and the absence of such with the Russian tandem lead to destruction.
"Saakashvili is better than the others. I have brought him up as a politician and I did it badly but even despite that, he is better than many others", - that was Eduard Shevardnadze's confession in an interview to Asaval-Dasavali Georgian weekly newspaper. That's the mildest assessment that he has ever given to Mishiko. In 2008, the former Georgian president was not so delicate in his statements and openly said that his successor was throwing the country far back into the past. Rough oppression of the opposition, low life level in the republic, decaying economy - all these facts do not contribute to the integration in Euro-Atlantic structures that Georgia has been dreaming about for ten years already.
Shevardnadze's disappointment can be easily understood. He fostered Mikhail Nikolozovitch from a young age, since the latter came to work in Tbilisi government in the far 1994. The assistance of the then president helped his protégé - an ungrateful protégé, as it tuned out later on - to get the post of the Minister of Justice and then get in the parliament as a deputy. Naturally, Mishiko's patron could never imagine the extent of dissoluteness that the young, active and perspective politician would come to, being carelessly cherished in Shevardnadze's bosom. For a long time Eduard Amvrosievich did not want to give up the hope of making a citadel of nation of Saakashvili. Even after such a grave shock as the forced resignation, he did not abandon the one whom he considered to be his apprentice - on the contrary, he offered consulting services to Saakashvili and his supporter Zurab Zhvania, who was later on quickly removed as an unwanted competitor.
As soon as Mishiko felt the taste of power, the nationalistic lessons of the very first Georgian president Zviad Gamsakhurdia seemed to suit his taste much more than Shevardnadze's tolerant "pro-Russian" sentiments. In vain the latter advised Mishiko not to mar relationship with the Kremlin completely. With the support of the sadly known Soros Foundation the current head of the Caucasian republic ventured too far and brought his troops to South Ossetia in order to start the Clear Field operation. That was the way he marked the beginning of an open friendship with Washington and pronounced Moscow a "bloodthirsty occupant", which caused sharp criticism on Shevardnadze's part, for he never taught Mr. Saakashvili such things.
