“Helpless” Tbilisi hiding behind NATO rostrum2011-03-24 22:24
Georgian authorities are having a holiday - never mind that they are not allowed to NATO: NATO itself has come to Sakartvelo. A seminar of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Alliance is currently held in Tbilisi. Top persons of the government are complaining from the rostrum about Russia. These accusations sound absurd: Moscow wants to attack, Moscow is going to devour the small neighbour, Moscow wants to stop the Georgian "democratic development". In other words, Sakartvelo authorities are in every way pushing NATO towards the simple idea that the small helpless Georgia needs being urgently protected. Against Russia, of course.
Indeed, open hypocrisy of the Georgian government has reached its peak. NATO PA seminar held in Tbilisi revealed Georgia's fierce desire to pull chestnuts out of the fire with someone else's hands, as well as the true reason why Saakashvili is so eager to get to NATO. The subtleness and elegance of approach are not typical of the current Georgian politicians. It is much more preferable to use a heavy bludgeon, though Georgians think themselves to be brilliant diplomats.
At the seminar visited by President of NATO Parliamentary Assembly Karl Lamers, Georgian leaders blew off steam, having complained about Russia as much as they could. It much resembles an attempt to throw Moscow and NATO together, keeping aside. Georgian authorities assure that they want peaceful relations with Russia, at the same time making most provocative statements. Actually, they were close to saying "Go!" to NATO.
Deputy Secretary of the National Security Council of Georgia Batu Kutelia directly stated: a conflict between Moscow and Tbilisi can become dangerous for his country. "There is a dangerous possibility that the conflict will develop in the direction that will be worst for Georgia", - Kutelia said. He complained that «we are dealing with the tactic location of the military equipment" in the regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, "artificial change of the demographic situation in the occupied territories" and also remembered that the Russian party has been often rebuking Sakartvelo of the support of terrorism, which, in Kutelia's opinion, means that Russia is preparing the ground for an attack at Georgia and is allegedly accustoming the world community to the fact.
However, seeing that the given data is not enough for stirring NATO's aggression, Kutelia made quite an intricate conclusion out of what was said. It looks like the deputy secretary of the Security Council realized that the Alliance might be compared to a Pavlov's dog with its unconditioned reflexes to certain words. And so he uttered them:
