Mishiko caught in xenophobia2011-08-26 20:09
Mikhail Saakashvili is sometimes obscene in his attacks at Russia and friendly republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. That's quite understandable: there is no way to regain what is lost, and the cosy republics turn into "useless piles of stones" in his mouth. Sometimes Mishiko is totally out of line, though. How is he going to get to Europe if he descends to overt xenophobia, which is hardly welcomed in the West?
Listening to Mikhail Saakashvili or reading his speeches related to the lost republics, you've got a feeling that the Georgian president suffers from double consciousness that allows him make quite the opposite statements with equal passion. On one hand, Mishiko views Abkhazia and South Ossetia as "useless piles of stones", which are good only as a spot to fire at Georgia. The Georgian president's superiority complex knows no measure: in his opinion, the only historical reason for the existence of a neighbouring country and people is being a platform for attacking his majesty.
At the same time, he asserts that the lost republics are a true "land of promise" and he, Saakashvili, will definitely bring his people there. Well, Mishiko is no Moses. The biblical prophet at least promised the Jews he led away from Egypt that he would bring them to the land streaming with milk and honey but not to a pile of stones.
One of these days, the president voiced another "discovery" about the lost territories. It suddenly dawned on Mishiko that it is the land of barbarians! They are Neanderthals living next to the great Georgian civilization!
"They are barbarians there and here, we've got civilization; there is Mongoloid brutality and ideology there and here rules the true old Colchis Europe - an ancient civilization", - that's what Mishiko said in Anaklia, pointing at the close but inaccessible Abkhazia.
That's really something. It has hardly been three years since Russia recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia's independence and the "truly Georgian territories" have rapidly degraded to "barbarians", acquiring Mongol traits all of a sudden. I wonder, will the local citizens instantly become civilized and full heirs of the "Colchis Europe" if Georgia manages to allure them back?..
As for the "ancient civilization", without further ado Mikhail Nikolozovich decided to take up Ukraine's way the country followed in Yushchenko's times when local "historians" stated that the entire humanity originated from ancient Ukrs. Now Mishiko is trying to snatch the palm from them - evidently in order to climb it, symbolizing the father of humanity.
