Envying the Georgian reforms2010-04-09 00:30
According to Foreign Minister of Georgia Vano Merabishvili, Russia is watching the Georgian reforms with hidden admiration. He must have formed his opinion on the grounds of some of the Russian liberals' show of affection. This decayed country tamed by the politicians from over the seas may become an object of envy only because of its sun, sea and, perhaps, its unique cuisine.
A person that is considered to be the pillar of Saakashvili's regime has told Commersant that the war between Russia and Georgia is not over yet, neither in political, nor in military terms. In vain do the Georgian president and the "peaceful" ministers try to gain the trust of the peoples that used to live side by side with them. Peace is hardly possible so long as such people as Merabishvili stay in power.
Well, there is really a lot to think about, especially if we match these words with Vano Merabishvili's story about a Chechen who confirmed the fact of Tbilisi aiding the North-Caucasian terrorists.
However, this fact remained a half-hint, while the victory at the peaceful front was commented upon by Merabishvili in a more open way: "We are going to win if Russia keeps saying that Georgia is carrying out efficient reforms because reforms and democracy is one and the same thing and because Russia is lacking it".
It looks like the Caucasian mountain ridge does not allow one see and hear well, or lets one hear only some liberal echo, like, for instance, Yulia Latynina's voice. She is truly shocked with the Foreign Ministry's transparency both in a direct and figurative sense of word, for the new building of the Ministry is made of glass. The patrol officers (who replaced the traffic police officers) do not take bribes and those who dare to are caught and put to prison in an utterly democratic way, despite their connections.
Such order has been established in the same "democratic" way. Dozens of thousands of people in a four-million country were dismissed, which means that a four times greater amount of people, for whom they were the breadwinners, suffered as well. The patrol ranks were staffed with the young officers, who, theoretically, also must be in need of an "extra payment". However, they are thoroughly watched via the disguised cameras, and one can be sentenced to ten years of imprisonment for taking a 50-dollar bribe.
Does it not remind Stalin's methods? Iosiph Vissarionovitch (Stalin) was also opposed to corruption. It looks like Merabishvili is actively promoting the idea of destroying the monument to Iosiph Vissarionovitch in Gori so that the image of this historical person would not outshine the personality of his follower Saakashvili.
