New "daddy" gave Misha a good scolding

New "daddy" gave Misha a good scolding. 23193.jpegAfter French President's departure from Tbilisi bureaucratic and scribes brotherhood of Sakartvelo daily demonstrated exemplary unanimity in the estimates of the visit. It's as if a landmark speech of Nicolas Sarkozy at Freedom Square has witnessed the full support of Saakashvili's regime by the EU. But with each passing day it becomes clearer: the gallant guest was only saying what the host country wanted to hear. Behind the scenes, a talk between the two presidents was in a very different



While Washington has not decided to finally say goodbye to Saakashvili, even Europeans have to take this adventurer into consideration. It's also a business of French leader Nicolas Sarkozy who had once acted as the guarantor of the peace process between Georgia and Russia. Therefore, in a speech to the crowd at Tbilisi's Freedom Square he proclaimed the arguments that contradicted his own three-year-old statements but very flattered vanity Avlabar roarer.

Opportunistic double-dealing of Frenchman was so obvious that at the same time he urged the Georgian authorities to cooperate with Russia, completely contradicting his own speeches, though composed of Saakashvili's templates. Now it becomes clear that this reservation was, perhaps, the only genuine thought in his speech to the people of Sakartvelo. Actually, the whole trip of Nicolas Sarkozy to the Transcaucasian republics - was an attempt to revive its image of peacemaker and encourage Tbilisi to real dialogue with Moscow. Such a diplomatic victory would play into the hands of the French leader who awaits presidential elections in his homeland.

But at a time when the tyranny of American puppet is gradually strengthening in Georgia, it was possible to push Tbilisi regime's into foreign-policy revolution only due to Sarkozy's usual rhetoric to which he resorted. His speech, which caused righteous indignation in Sukhum and Tskhinval and understandable confusion of Moscow, did not hide something more.

According to Senior Researcher of the Caucasus Institute of the CIS countries Ruslan Harabua, the French leader just indulged a fantastic aspirations of the Georgian ruling elite. "I think Sarkozy reassured the Georgian leadership to the effect that in the case that they have a real opportunity to return Abkhazia and South Ossetia", said the expert. It is clear that in fact Sarkozy could not give any guarantees because for an effective political pressure on Abkhazia and South Ossetia, they should at least to recognize them. While Washington has not written off Saakashvili, it is impossible. And Paris has no leverage to pressure Moscow.

It would be correct to judge about the Georgian vector of European diplomacy by the proceedings but not by words. As for this case, there are no proceedings. No one - neither Mikhail Saakashvili, nor any of his associates - did not bother to accompany dear French visitor to the aircraft. According to the laws of the diplomatic politesse it was outright obstruction. Just like not head of a great European power was leaving Sakartvelo but a guest actor from a third-rate country in Africa. Particularly striking is a finale of Sarkozy's visit to Georgia against the background of those honors which he got at the meeting.

"Our authorities are acting just like the Soviet nomenklatura. Want you or not, but it recalls Brezhnev's visit to Tbilisi", the leader of the opposition "Democratic Movement "United Georgia" Nino Burjanadze assessed a great-scale celebrations to mark the arrival of a French visitor.
