Georgian Napoleon obsessed by United Caucasus2011-02-16 20:52
Yesterday Tbilisi hosted a meeting of Mikheil Saakashvili with the Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Akhmed Davutoglu. The Georgian leader decided to make hay while the sun shines. After the parties had discussed their co-operation in the area of security and economy, Mikheil Nikolaevich confessed to Head of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs that he had a dream of his life: United Caucasus. And these ambitions are supposedly supported by Armenia and Azerbaijan. Saakashvili is sure that even the conflicts existing in the region will not prevent them to realize such an alluring idea. Trust Mishiko: he always shifts concepts, passing the facilitation of a visa system between the countries for the creation of a mythical alliance.

Everyone knows: to argue with an inadequate person is more trouble than worth. But Erevan, Baku and Ankara are in no hurry to put their names down for his brilliant idea. They have lots of their own problems to lay on themselves the burden of the forsaken Tbilisi.
Open borders between Georgia and Turkey will probably make some contribution to greater intimacy of the two states, but the dead checkpoints between Turkey, Azerbaijan and Armenia will hardly promote their co-operation. Nagorny Karabakh is still a cornerstone on which Mikhail Saakashvili will keep stumbling with his rapturous intention to reinforce the positions of his state in the Caucasus.
In addition, the "Napoleonic" scale of the global ideas
