Georgia unwelcome in Old World

2011-10-17 11:18

Georgia unwelcome in Old World. 23290.jpegLike any leader of a country, Mikheil Saakashvili has obsessions that people in his charge are obliged to share. Among these "fixations" is his desire to become a fully legitimate European.


Mr. President can be understood: the man of Armenian origin, appointed to Georgia's "number one post" in order to confront Russia, desperately wants to get away from the closed circle of a political destiny in store for him. It is a different question why, and hardly will Mikheil Nikolozovich asks it. Yet, his craving for the West takes so much time and money that it's high time for citizens of the Caucasian republics to consider themselves as Europeans. At least in order to please "the father of nations".

Yet, ungrateful population stubbornly refuses to accept Mishiko's emotional proclamation in good faith as well as long-term promises of his subordinates and rose-colored official statistics that fully reflects similarity of life in Georgia and Europe. If social polls were organized by pro-presidential sociologists and journalists only, Sakartvelo would have long become a EU superpower. Yet, now and then there appears different statistical information that shows Saakashvili's real situation and the opinion of Georgians about their Europeanism. Here is a fresh example: a poll carried out by PirWeli news agency revealing if Georgians agree with French president Nicolas Sarkozy who failed to see the difference between Georgia and Europe.

12,4% of the respondents (i.e. one in eight citizens of Georgia) support the opinion of the guest from EU who recently came on a visit to Georgia. It's clear why people think so. Now that the European zone is torn by controversies that force strong members pay no regard to weak partners, many things in Europe's life are easily projected on today's Georgia. To sit on a powder keg waiting for a reply "from above" about a new loan to support national economy is very much in Saakashvili's style.
