Georgian parliament’s superiority complex2011-04-21 19:25
It looks like Georgian authorities have set up an objective of gaining a status of the major hell-raiser in the region. As soon as they make friends with anyone, a loud scandal immediately breaks out. Hardly have they mended relations with Israel when a filthy story with the detention of local businessmen happened. Then, all of a sudden, Tel-Aviv openly made friends with Abkhazia. Now Georgian politicians have started threatening Turkey
. Indeed, Sakartvelo is failing to gain the reputation of a peacemaker and a regional center of gravity.
As time goes by, it becomes evident that the crown is too tight for the Georgian top officials. In all appearances, the government consists of over-emotional people taking to heart the smallest changes in the political and economic domain. They immediately start pressing on their partners, putting on airs and conversing a-la nouveaux riches.
One can see that the signboard "Georgia is to become a regional center and unification point" is hiding the only desire to subjugate everyone around. But are the current authorities capable of getting the better of anyone? It looks like irrelevant ambitions and attempts to "control" the partners make the latter recoil one by one. It is the independent republics that become the sticking point time after time. First, Georgia quarreled with Israel and now it is marring relationship with Turkey. By all appearances, the inability to put up with one's fate will soon leave the proud Tbilisi in sublime loneliness.
Let us remind you that about a week ago, Sakartvelo's government received a great shock from the "treachery" of Israeli spokesmen who ventured a dialogue with the Abkhaz officials without asking Georgia. Moreover, Sukhum uttered a phrase which puts in question the claims of Tbilisi that has set sights on expensive partnership with Israel. "Our people's history has got much in common, problematic neighbours, for instance", - Tel-Aviv Spokesman Israel Ziv complained to the Abkhaz. The Georgians may thank their government for helping their country acquire the reputation of an outright hell-raiser.
