Burjanadze: Saakashvili will break his neck2011-08-29 22:25
Various countries, even if they are far from the war between the green and the tricoloured flags, are "trying on" the events in Libya. Oppositional leader Nino Burjanadze shared her idea of a parallel between what is going on in North Africa and what is happening in Georgia. She is sure that sooner or later, Sakartvelo will experience the same tragedy as Libya with the only difference that President Saakashvili is no Muammar Gaddafi and won't fight to the bitter end.
As was stated earlier, two days ago the Georgian government greeted Libyan Transitory National Council, which is straining after power with the help of NATO bombing and is treading on the corpses of common people, with happy exclamations and letters. Naturally, such "protection of civilians" could not but awake an echo in Mikhail Saakashvili's heart. He is famous for meaning "war" by "peace", which was experienced by South-Ossetians on the night of August 8, 2008. That is why Georgian MFA was so honey-tongued in its congratulatory letter to the rebels, though there is a small confusion: Tripoli has not surrendered yet and the revolutionists have not yet seized the power.
Naturally, Saakashvili regards the Libyan rebels as his brothers in mind, supporting them with all his heart, while his political opponents feel much more pessimistic about the situation. For instance, one of the oppositional leaders Nino Burjanadze is sure that Georgia will repeat Libya's scenario of losing everything, dying, ceasing to exist - because of the president's policy.
Ultimately, if Saakashvili is so happy that a tyrant is being overthrown in the far Africa, he should also get ready for being asked to leave sooner or later. Simply stated, he that mischief hatches, mischief catches. The proverb could be transformed a bit when applied to the situation in Libya and the official Georgia's reaction to it: don't hatch mischief and don't praise those who do it.
Burjanadze is sure: Saakashvili and his accomplices welcoming a revolution are going "to break their necks" the way NATO's boot is breaking the African country's back. Sad future of the Georgian government will be shared by common citizens, just like innocent Libyans are dying under the West's bombs. The only difference is that Mikhail Saakashvili is no Muammar Gaddafi. Actually, they are antipodes.
