Foreign oil would give Saakashvili no peace2010-11-10 17:28
It's a well-known fact that Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili has got superiority complex. Not only does he think that his name is a buzz word for each inhabitant on the planet; he is also sure that Georgia is one of the three most uncorrupted countries in Europe. One of these days, leader of Sakartvelo again impressed everyone with his knowledge, skill and eloquence. This time, personal offense caused to him by Russia in connection with the unsuccessful operation on expanding Caucasian republic came out as the torrent of confused conclusions. Well, no wonder - Mishiko is scarcely expected to produce anything else.
Mr. President's metaphoric expressions should not be taken literally, for it has been proven that not every inhabitant of the planet is aware of such a funny person living in Georgia. Thus, Mikheil Saakashvili should add his own unpopularity to the rest of his psychological injuries, including the regularly demonstrated envy.
For instance, lately, it has been oil that gives no peace to Mishiko. It's like an eyesore, a symbol of his personal failure, a tease from those possessing this precious resource. Even if all the countries chipped in together to supply various oil brands to Georgia, the whole amount of oil would go to "feed" Mr. Saakashvili and replenish his freasury: Urals oil, Brent oil, foreign oil Light Sweet, the latter being his favorite, from his sovereign's stock.
Of course, a beautiful dream is over in the morning but one needs to psychologically release oneself. Earlier, the sublimation of the Georgian president's personal complexes used to consist in breathtaking projects on constructing mythic oil pipelines in the Georgian territory with the help of other East-European countries. Then, it became obvious that these projects would not satisfy Mikheil Saakashvili's appetite. Besides, the touchy leader of Sakartvelo is sure that all of it is the result of solely Russian insinuations, while those who have started a strange "reload" in relationship with the "occupants" are just slightly involved there.
However, it would be improper to bite the western hands feeding Saakashvili, while escalating the conflict with the main offender, Russia, is a very simple thing. It was Russia that drew the final line in the Georgian claims of the Abkhaz territory with its oil deposits. That is why, one of these days, having evidently given up the hope of turning Georgia into one large oil derrick, Mishiko addressed rather an angry speech at Russia.
