Toy army of Georgian opposition

Toy army of Georgian opposition. 17056.jpegOver the past few months representatives of Georgian opposition repeatedly declared their readiness to overthrow the ruling regime. The month of May, as the opposition claims, must be the time of demonstrations. Yet, the only thing Mikheil Saakashvili's opponents are good at so far is humiliating each other in the information war. The quarrel between David Usupashvili, head of the Republican Party, and Sozar Subari, one of the leaders of the Georgian Party live on air only confirms suspicions that the ranks of the opposition are deep in chaos.


It will be remembered that during a talk show on Caucasia channel both politicians were arguing over who's Moscow's secret spy. Emotions burst out when the Georgian party's demonstration at the US Embassy was discussed. Before that, Subari's teammate - Erosi Kitsmarishvili - stated that Washington keeps the republic from making "a free sovereign choice in home affairs and other political issues". Accordingly, the opposition planned a protest rally at the US diplomatic representation calling to stop supporting Saakashvili's regime. According to Usupashvili, such intentions illustrate the Georgian Party's links with Russia. "Who must recognize this revolution as legitimate? There is only one force that wants this recognition - it's Russia. Only Russia wants to call this

revolution legitimate. This is your goal, and it's good you have finally acknowledged that. Everything is clear about you", - he emphasized.

Sozar Subari was quick to respond to his former comrade in the Alliance for Georgia. He accused Usupashvili of begging Russian authorities for material support in confrontation with the current regime. In the end, they switched over to insulting each other with obscenities.

On the whole, it was a grand scandal. Mikheil Saakashvili can easily dissolve his United National Movement. With today's opposition he does not need supporters. Other shameful episodes are not a rarity among politicians that claim to oppose the authorities. Their squabbling in the press as with Badri Bitsadze and Levan Gachechiladze, sometimes grows into a physical struggle.

Numerous opponents of the regime turned the president's dethronement into a real show. It's a pity that tickets are not free of charge. Besides, the price of this clownery grows every day - together with the confidence of today's authorities of the opposition's unsoundness. Scandals, like Subari and Usupashvili's quarrel, only weaken people's desire to listen to the opposition. After all it's likely that soon the slogans inviting to demonstrations will sound like "everyone to protest rallies, bastards" or "To democracy, scoundrels!"

The problem is that Georgia's political arena is a giant puzzle that an ill-behaved child brought to pieces. For the time being there is no sound-minded adult that would bring the mischievous child to order (desirably with the use of a good dry branch). Current chaos distracts the population from struggle for power - even if it is accompanied with most beautiful slogans. The results of the poll carried out by Kakhetia's information center are particularly demonstrative. Over 30% of the respondents mistrust all political parties - no matter if it's the United National Movement or the opposition.
