Saakashvili throws the students to the propaganda front2009-08-07 23:10
Mikhail Saakashvili is a true expert in political manipulations. Having shamefully run away from a bird's shadow that he mistook for a Russian plane last year, the Georgian president made everything he could to win the informational war after his army was totally defeated. Now, when the world public community is treating his tricks with less favour and the opposition in Georgia is openly accusing him of unleashing the August massacre, Saakashvili's propagandistic administration is turning itself inside out to try and deceive the world once again.
However, such global deception will not do for the second time. Neither is it going to be encouraged by a new political performance, as one might call this action, held by the "mishist" students that have started from Tbilisi to Gori by dozens of buses in order to take part in the events dedicated to the anniversary of the war in South Ossetia. According to their leader, head of the August 7 students organization Giorgi Shamatava, about five thousand Georgian students that have been enlisted by the regime to support their "beloved president" are to express the protest against Russia's actions by making a "live chain" symbolizing Georgia's unity. According to Shamatava, the students are going to announce that "the Georgian young people will never put up with
the Russian boot in their land". Besides, the students want to address the Georgian government with a proposal to proclaim the 7th of August as the Unity Day.
However, we have already seen it all. We have seen the hundred-thousand demonstration last August in Tbilisi, when the crowd roared with delight in support of President Saakashvili who dragged the country into a criminal adventure, which resulted in thousands of people being bereft of life and more thousands of the Ossetian and Georgian families being deprived of their shelter. Saakashvili was then standing triumphantly at the hustings.
Then, the delight died out. In a couple of months it was followed by cruel beating of the demonstrators who did not agree with the outcome of the parliamentary election and by political confrontation between the president and his political opponents, which is still going on.
Well, one can many times proclaim the 7th of August as the Unity Day; however, there will be no true unity of the Georgian nation so long as Saakashvili's regime remains in power. Thus, Mr.Saakashvili's PR experts are losing their time while trying to pass off the black as white; in vain are they trying to organize a political performance with the participation of the young "mishists" on the ruins of the Georgian democracy.
