Youth hour by Mikheil Saakashvili2009-07-23 23:05
The propaganda authority of Georgia must publish a 1 mln copy edition of Saakashvili's quotations - something like Chairman Mao's "little red book" that was Chinese youths' favorite read at the time of culture revolution.
Mikheil Nikolozovich constantly surprises modern politicians with his sayings about various aspects of Georgian society, Georgia's place in the world and his role in the development of the world democratic process.
And as Joseph Biden is not an enthusiastic listener being a serious figure in the political arena unlike his Georgian vis-à-vis, the president went to "rhapsodize" (no other word would describe that) to the Tbilisi racetrack.
This sports facility has lately become a center of various political gatherings - a music festival pompously defined as alternative Eurovision 2009 held in Moscow or an exhibition, more than strange for Georgians, dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
For Saakashvili this event seems even more symbolic than for Germans that live in Berlin. This can't be said about Tbilisans who unlike their president have to think about daily bread ways to get by on a modest income. But somehow Mikheil Nikolozovich decided for himself that "the new Berlin Wall" was now erected along Georgian border with breakaway South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
"Today's line of freedom goes along the barriers Russia has built on the occupied territories (this is how official Tbilisi interprets Russia's recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia - ed.). This is like a new Berlin Wall with two Russian soldiers already climbing over it and much more of those who would like to. We have reliable information about it», - the Georgian president said commenting on deserted Private Artemyev who following the example of Sergeant Glukhov fled his military unit in South Ossetia and decided to stay in Georgia.
Desertion is characteristic of many armies of the world. But for Georgian president two Russian soldiers leaving their units to make their way to Georgia are like a "manna".
Today, Saakashvili stated "Georgia is defending not only its own freedom, though, of course, we are primarily protecting our freedom. But, he emphasized, Georgia is also protecting "freedom-lovers in Russia and freedom of the states inside the region".
