NATO has left Saakashvili with a tie2011-11-14 19:43
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen had arrived in Georgia and promised Saakashvili that his country would someday join NATO, and went away. This visit, from a factful point of view, was not worth a damn.
But the Georgian president tried to squeeze out of it all possible dividends. And now the government-controlled media put forward conspiracy theories, allegedly Georgia would take place of Germany in the Alliance. But a sense of style is increasingly failing Mishiko. In his delusional visions, he decided that NATO membership is a centuries-old dream of the Georgian people.
A failed Saakashvili's joke about the tie and jacket showed, what hopes Tbilisi had pinned on the visit of the head of the Alliance. "Your predecessor, when he came to Georgia, gave me a NATO tie. I was hoping that you will give me at least a NATO jacket ... I think it would very much approached this tie", Georgian leader made a last attempt to squeeze out something definite from Anders Fogh Rasmussen at a joint press conference in Batumi after meeting of NATO-Georgia Commission. But the joke was not appreciated by his counterpart, and Mishiko had got nothing. The Georgian leader, whose ratings, despite the brainwashing the public through controlled media, is so low, went all out, trying to cajole unyielding Fogh Rasmussen, to make him say words about Georgia's NATO accession. But Rasmussen had only said about the "impressive progress". Not knowing how to break through the armor of benevolent uncertainty of NATO Secretary General and his entourage, the head of Georgian state had claimed that membership in the Western military bloc - is a centuries-old dream of the Georgian people.
"We've never been so close to NATO as it is now. And now, the centuries-old aspiration of Georgia into the European family is real as never before, said the head of the Transcaucasian republic, fawning upon Fogh Rasmussen. For the last three years, the two North Atlantic Council meetings took place in Georgia, and now I have got an invitation to visit the next meeting of this body in Brussels". All the same, Mishiko has nothing to do but calm himself with illusions. He has not even got NATO jacket. And they could not give it, because, following Rasmussen's visit to Georgia, Russia's permanent representative in the Alliance, Dmitry Rogozin said: "NATO cannot figure out in which borders to include Georgia".
