Saakashvili sends patriots to camp

2010-07-29 18:07

In the end even Pan Ki Moon, UN Secretary General called Georgia to wind up the camp of young patriots set up in the proximity of Abkhaz border in the report on the situation in the zone of Georgian-Abkhaz conflict presented to the UN Security Council. "Cultural activities must be organized in a way as not to cause wrong interpretations, mistaken evaluations and subsequent violence", - Caucasian Knot quoted the head of the organization. Georgia did not react to the call of reason and the preposterous children's facility close to the battle line was swept away as a result of the hostilities.


Opening a new Patriot camp Mikheil Saakashvili pointed to Abkhazia saying: "Take a look: Putin raised a new Berlin wall on the beach instead of the one that was demolished in 1989 that he regrets so much. Look to the left - to Georgia: it is full of light, work is on, sea resorts are being constructed. Now look to the right, to Abkhazia enveloped in the darkness of occupation".

So it was worthwhile to restore the camp at least for this bright castigating speech and a possibility to show off achievements of the democratic government (never mind that in the aftermath of 2008 war so unwisely launched by Saakashvili Georgia received money from donors).

As for "peaceful intentions" of the camp construction in 2007 Georgian media wrote that Georgia had not changed the strategy - only tactics. To annex Abkhazia it was necessary to start nurturing patriotic sentiment of young people -from Gal district as well. That is why Patriot camp is located close to Abkhazia. If there had been no 08/08/08 adventure, intentions of the Georgian authorities might have come true. Presently the "Lego" town in Anaklia will hardly help Georgia to solve its territorial issues.
