A long way to NATO...2008-12-03 18:02
By the beginning of the NATO Foreign Ministers' meeting the alignment between opponents and supporters of Georgia's and Ukraine's accession to NATO has undergone some changes.
Poland's president Lech Kaczynski who was a zealous lobbyist of Ukraine's and Georgia's accession to the alliance turned to be mixed up in a scandalous story.
It will be remembered that on November 22 presidents of Georgia and Poland decided to go Akhalgori controlled by the Russian troops and came under fire as it is supposed. On return Lech Kaczynski tried to trigger a scandal. The Polish leader even sent a letter to the President of the European commission José Manuel Barroso.
"Some alliance members go against European interests by opposing Georgia's and Ukraine's accession to NATO, - Poland's president told the European community. - The current situation in Georgia will be an examination for the EC. Will Europe be able to stop the renascent Russian imperialism that as the history shows was never satisfied with concessions."
José Manuel Barroso didn't even have time to reply as Kaczynski was attacked by Poland's prime minister Donald Tusk. He initiated an emergent investigation in order to find out what exactly had happened at the time of Kaczynski's visit to Georgia involving the Internal Security Agency (ISA). Three days later it delivered the following verdict: "Shots in proximity of Polish and Georgian presidents' car were Georgia's act of provocation".
Kaczynski got beaten all over. Donald Tusk stated that President had come very near framing all Poland.
The first thing the prime minister did was dismissing president's guard unit chief Ksistof Olsovts despite of Kaczynski's protests. The latter was offended stating that he needed no protection at all. No such luck: the government's security bureau now responsible for patronizing the President stated that according to the law "officials must be protected and such measures cannot be avoided".
The situation in the Czech Republic is opposite. There the country's president Vaclav Klaus is trying to calm down Mirek Topolanek, prime minister. From the very beginning the latter was the principal supporter of American AMD in the Czech Republic. After August his political credo was completed with immediate accession of Georgia to the alliance in order to surround the evil empire with "the belt of democracies". Promoting this idea Topolanek has been hunting for Russian units in Prague suburbs for four months already.
