US to impose a resolution on Georgia

2011-05-13 13:34

US to impose a resolution on Georgia. 16988.jpegUS senators are set to consider a special resolution on Abkhazia and South Ossetia with Georgian ready to celebrate victory since the document will focus on the "occupied" status of two republics, as well as "ethnic cleansings" allegedly carried out by Russian troops. Representatives of official Tbilisi anticipate this initiative of the US parliament's lower chamber with joy. Yet, it is quite obvious that their optimism is premature.


It will be remembered that the topic of the US Senate's resolution has been discussed for over half a year. Georgian diplomats were impatient to deliver "news from the front" on the issue stating that the document would be considered and adopted soon becoming a powerful weapon in Saakashvili's information war with Russia. However, the process was slow despite Tbilisi's hinting their colleagues in Washington that discussion of the issue is indispensible. As a result, representatives of the Democratic and Republican Parties accordingly - Jean Shahin and Lindsey Graham passed a long-awaited resolution draft to the US Senate for consideration.

As Temur Yakobashvili, now working as a diplomat in Washington, highlighted, adoption of the document will reinforce Georgia's positions considerably and will create "a rather serious basis" for "deoccupation" of Georgia. He also expressed satisfaction over the fact that the contents of the resolution on Tskhinval and Sukhum's status agrees with Tbilisi's position. For instance, governments of both republics are humiliatingly denominated as "puppet regimes".

If the United States show real interest in problems of Abkhazia and South Ossetia they had better distract from Georgian hospitality during one of the visits and get personal vision of what people of two republics think of their "occupied" status. Probably, after a conversation with representatives of the "puppets" above they would understand that being part of "democratic" Georgia would mean forced deportation for the population of both republics - at best.

For the time being Senators insult and mock at Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The resolution in question just proves it. However, it's little wonder, since the authors of the text are Saakashvili's fierce supporters in the US political elite. Lindsay Graham is known for lobbying open arms supplies for Tbilisi - after US-equipped troops of Georgia attacked South Ossetia. The only logical explanation of this loyalty is a desire to get a piece of the amounts spent by the Georgian president on information support. By all appearances, the Republican Senator wants a fat piece of the million cake Mikheil Nikolozovich offers to his overseas lobbyists.

However, all this money might be useless. Obviously, Washington won't provoke Russia openly. Saakashvili is no more needed to the USA (as confirmed by warm attitude of the States toward Georgian opposition). The resolution on Abkhazia and South Ossetia must be considered in the context of Washington-Moscow relations. Most probably, the resolution will be a minor intrigue in the diplomatic game between two world empires. Americans openly want Kremlin's concessions in exchange for a milder version of the document or its total wind-up. However, they will hardly succeed. Recognition of independence of Tskhinval and Sukhum is a too important issue in Russia's foreign policy, and Russia won't want speculations on the issue. The document supporting the Rose Revolution won't becomes the Resolution of Threats.

The attention Saakashvili regime calls to this resolution shows that the authorities of the Caucasian republic have lost the vision of reality. Or they just pretend they don't get the West's hint that they are useless. This situation mostly points to Georgia's role as a token coin that the country acquired with the current leaders.
