Virtual Georgia’s great victories2010-12-22 11:18
A year has passed since the memorial to the common victory in the Second World War was blown-up. This year was marked by many events in Georgia. The country kept treading slowly the chosen path of turning into a global Russia-fighting center. So far, it has not achieved much success: Georgia became the world center of the anti-Russian hysterics. The economy has been in a poor condition in 2010; they say the crisis has got at it finally. Still, there is a radiant smile on the face of the Georgian president, just like before. He has found an occupation for his people.
This weekend, a funny picture went around the media publications: Mikheil Saakashvili is chairing a government session against the background of stalactites and stalagmites of the Sataplia cave near Kutaisi. In this manner, the president is promoting tourist directions. Saakashvili acting as a publicity agent is the new joke in the domestic policy this year.
This is the Georgian leader's new tactics. Having evidently lost faith in his subordinates, he is independently advertising various resorts of his own country, bathing in the sea of Batumi, goes to the mires in Anaklia where a new resort will be built and is brave enough to climb into a cave...
Such determination will most probably bring fruit. Dozens of people in Internet blogs have already made up their minds to visit the same cave, the only cave in the world whether a country's government session was held.
As for the rest, this year has been rather dull for Georgia that has grown accustomed to being the subject of headings in the world publications. There were no wars, marches, cataclysms and other things that generally enable a country's leader to feel the leader of the ten top popular people on the planet.
This year rather consisted of petty but annoying failures. Russia became member of the World Trade Organization, which fact had been recognized even by the most anti-Russian politicians of Tbilisi. Of course, Georgia will be given a chance to save face, for there are special procedures provided by WTO for such cases.
Still, there is little pleasure in that. The idea of shutting the way to WTO for Russia was one of the foreign policy elements. However, Tbilisi again overestimated itself, forgetting that Georgia is not the center of the world political decision-making.
