Burjanadze: I am not crazy like Saakashvili2011-01-17 17:15
Former Chairwoman of Parliament and leader of the oppositional United Georgia Democratic Movement Nino Burjanadze has at last unburdened her mind and let out what each reasonable Georgian has had on the tip of the tongue: she publicly called Saakashvili crazy. Considering the Georgian leader's eccentric tricks, one cannot but agree with this characteristic. Such skeptic definition of the president's mental ability was caused by his total failure to protect his country's interests.
As is known to anyone living among people, it's a great luck to have a reasonable and sober-minded neighbour and there is nothing worse than an insane psycho whom it's impossible to talk to or even reach with the policemen's help, especially when his roof has indeed been blown: in this case, poor neighbours have to put up with the violence, scandals and constant charges with everyone's intention to do him in.
The same principle is valid for the neighbouring states. It's good to have a decent and level-headed neighbour with whom you can settle political and economical issues for mutual benefit and satisfaction but it's very bad luck when you've got an unpredictable insane yeller raging behind your fence and when you never know what to expect of him: declaration of war or wild screaming about being universally offended.
That's exactly the situation Russia and the countries surrounding Georgia have got in, North-Caucasian republics in particular. Day by day President Saakashvili seems to confirm the world's suppositions of his psychic imbalance, from chewing his tie in front of the astonished audience to hallucinations about the evil occupants hiding in the Georgian mountains and from the over-optimistic reports on Georgia's steady economic growth in the context of tremendous unemployment to the promise of turning Batumi into a mixture of Hong Kong and Las Vegas within two years.
It would be also be relevant to remember the imitated "war" with Russia that was shown on TV in a so realistic way that it led to real victims: people died of heart attacks. One can endlessly enumerate Saakashvili's "feats". The fact that Saakashvili should be put in an asylum is nothing new for the people and it is the diplomatic politeness that prevents this fact from being put baldly.
Still, there are people who are able to unburden their mind on their own behalf and on behalf of many other people.
Oppositionist Nino Burjanadze was absolutely right to say on the air of Palitra radio station that one has to be crazy to talk back to Russia as Saakashvili is doing it.
