To see Batumi and die2011-05-11 14:27
Last weekend Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili had a new attack of chronic megalomania. As a result, ill-fated Batumi that "has the luck" of being Mishiko's favorite, got a new portion of promises. In particular, the president claimed that the town will have the status of Georgia's financial and economic center with its Eifel tower symbolizing Sakartvelo's genetic tree. The only consolation for those who dislike his ideas is that the president will not last forever.
Mental patients usually suffer aggravations in autumn and spring, as any doctor will confirm. But why should specialists bother: they have a bright example right in front of their eyes. The Georgian president had a new seasonal attack in the form of senseless speeches last weekend in Batumi. Mishiko came to attend a business center opening ceremony. Astounded residents of Batumi who heard him speaking were left bewildered: should they cry or laugh? On one hand, sound-minded people are always invigorated by Saakashvili's merry speeches. On the other hand, it is not that pleasant to see an insane ruler.
Mishiko began with promising that Batumi would become Sakartvelo's third town in order of importance. "Tbilisi is a capital, a governmental center. Kutaisi will become the parliamentary capital, and Batumi is meant to become Georgia's number one financial center", - the president who once boasted of having "adopted" Batumi as a daughter, stated. With these promises Saakashvili looks more like a Sunday father that comes, makes meaningless presents and then quickly disappears.
Why should a small country that loses its territories have three capitals? Probably, this is the only way to overcome growing unemployment? As we know, Georgian citizens have a chance to find a job only in Tbilisi. It's pointless to try that in other regions. Probably, "multiplying" capitals verbally Saakashvili naively believes that employments will spring up as if by magic? Or does the president obsessed with megalomania think that small but proud Georgia is too good to have ordinary towns? Each Georgian is a prince, each town is a capital, aren't they? On the whole it sounds logical.
