It runs off Saakashvili like water off a duck’s back2009-08-10 23:07
While the Western public opinion is more and more twitched by doubts as to the flawlessness of Mikhail Saakashvili's democratic charisma and his behavior in the Georgian-Russian military conflict, the president believes that the international community and the "serious politicians" have got no doubts as to the question about who started the war last August.
Not only does he ignore the contents of the EU Committee report on investigating the last year August war, although the delay of the proclamation of this comprehensive document seems to be rather strange but the Georgian president also says: "Everyone understands perfectly that it was aggression, intrusion and occupation on the part of Russia. Of course, there are people, including those in Europe, that wish to equally divide the responsibility for launching war between the Georgian and the Russian party". By "those" he obviously means a British Army Captain and Deputy Head of the OSCE mission in Georgia Ryan Grist, who said last September that the force used by Saakashvili's regime was "absolutely disproportional".
By "those in Europe" the Georgian president must mean Uve Klussman, the Spiegel journalist who, with reference to the German special services, published the materials of his investigation that turned out to be evidently disappointing for Saakashvili.
By "those in America" the Georgian president must also mean a high-powered Republican congressman from the state of California Dan Rorabacker, who, a month after Georgia's attack at South Ossetia announced the following at the US Congress meetings, having referred to the data collected by the American Intelligence service: "The Russians are right but we are not. The Georgians started all this and the Russians put an end to it".
The Georgian president refers to his domestic opponents as to fringe politicians. These people include former Speaker of Parliament Nino Burjanadze, who told about Saakashvili having confronted her with the fact of bombarding Tskhinval, and one of the oppositional leaders Levan Gachechiladze.
"We have got such marginal men who unambiguously say that this war was an adventure set up by the Georgian government; however, as a rule, these people are living in content in the center of Tbilisi and know nothing about the sufferings of the refugees and the tragedy that happened", - Saakashvili oratorized on the Friday night in his on-air address broadcasted by the Imedi TV company.
This was the reaction of the "flawless" Georgian leader to the statement made by Levan Gachechiladze in The Independent newspaper.
