Saakashvili: a “peace pipe” turns out a provocation2010-10-13 17:54
Official Tbilisi is trying to look more attractive realizing that imperialist manners hit the country's economy and political image much too hard. Georgian leaders view the initiative to introduce visa-free regime for republics of North Caucasus as a "peace pipe" offered to Russia. In reality this idea risks turning into another phony like many other undertakings by Saakashvili regime.
It will be remembered that the honor to announce good news to the citizens of North Ossetia, Adygeya, Dagestan and other North Caucasian republics was assigned to Georgia's deputy FM Nino Kalandadze. She said that Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili had prepared an order on visa-free visits to Sakartvelo for people residing in North Caucasus. A short while later the president's spokesperson Manana Mandzhgaladze remarked that this proposal by official Tbilisi is in line with Mikheil Nikolozovich's new strategy on creation of "a unique Caucasian space". Lots of pro-governmental politicians in Georgia confirmed their approval.
Russia is utterly bewildered at Saakashvili's new fantasies. Georgia resembles a rural drunkard who used to bother all his neighbors with scandals and debauches and now invites their children in for a day or two. Still, the diplomatic proposals mean involvement of at least two sides.
However, it is quite possible that the Georgian initiative has less plausible pretexts. Obviously, without Russia Sakartvelo's economy is heading for total collapse with the speed of ultralight. Financial experiments that the country has been offered by president Saakashvili and Vera Kobalia, minister of economy and striptease, are not the point. Like any premature child unable to live without mother's umbilical cord Georgia is madly trying to survive in this cruel world. Now the country's authorities do their best to attract the attention of North Caucasian business community that has investment plans in Georgia.
