American interest starting with letter G2010-07-02 12:00
The Georgians flatter themselves that the future of their country is of primary interest for the U.S. Today, all Georgian media outlets reported the statement made by a State Department official who called upon Russia to "de-occupy" Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The statement probably means that Georgia has not been turned adrift so far. Still, let us get down to it: do Americans really need Georgian democracy, integrity and economic prosperity? There is an impression that the anti-Russian rhetoric is America's only interest in Georgia.
If someone believes that Americans went to Iraq with the purpose of democracy building I would advise him to ask about the conditions of work for foreign oil-and-gas corporations, which activities had once been strictly limited. Besides, I would advise him to count the tax-payers' money that has been devoured by the puppet government and American companies holding a contract with Washington. Common Iraqi and Americans got a negative result out of the entire campaign, while the tycoons in some business fields, such as defense, medicine, or safeguarding activity, received enormous profit out of it, and the American state obtained influence upon the rich in hydrocarbon resources and ideologically strong Iran.
A similar story is developing in Afghanistan, where the appearance of NATO troops has not brought any happiness, justice or democracy. Instead, it provided the American defense industry with orders and enabled Washington to monitor the Centrial-Asian power resource flows, especially those delivery channels that lead to China, another country claiming the world leadership in the nearest future.
Georgia agreed to build American democracy without any resistance. America managed to impose credits upon it, as well as to locally deliver a huge amount of arms that were free for Georgians but were not at all free for the American citizens. Later on, these arms were realized in the knowingly losing war in South Ossetia, while the USA managed to sell some more after August 2008 to compensate for the losses.
Someone would say that Mikhail Saakashvili misunderstood the orders of the White House, while others assert that Russia was ready to abandon Tskhinval but changed its mind. Still, if we take into account the strategy used by American arms industry in other countries we can assume that the stir in South Ossetia was imposed by the those who were financially interested in a war. Perhaps, the starting signal came from Pentagon: according to independent researchers, such as Naomi Klein, the U.S. officials, including those in Ministry of Defense, craftily combine business with the government of the state.
