Saakashvili has put wrong guy2011-11-23 19:12
The struggle of Mikhail Saakashvili with the legacy of the Soviet era is starting to resemble a battle with the windmills. By the twentieth anniversary of the Soviet Union collapsed a monument to Ronald Reagan is erected in Tbilisi. He had allegedly played a major role to make the U.S. strategic adversary would sink into oblivion. However, a person with the lowest IQ of any American president, except George W. Bush, was just a manager. But the other people have skimmed the cream.
At one time, many countries claim to be a superpower which could dictate terms of their own world order to the other states. However, only Russia and the United States could maintain their position. Though sometimes they were in danger of collapse, but both have survived till today. Another question is that the collapse of the Soviet Union was not so much a historical necessity to weaken Moscow's influence in the Euro-Atlantic space, as the nationalist elites tend to argue. And not because of the U.S. administration.
As we see, the rise to power of Barack Obama has not much influence on the American policy toward Russia. While the U.S. leader himself is sweetly smiling to Dmitry Medvedev and eating hamburgers with him, the lobbyists of confrontation between the two states continue to do their job. The republicans, representing a majority in the Congress, are restless. John McCain has left Obama behind in the elections in Alabama, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas in 2008, which says a lot. The GDP of Texas is almost comparable to Russia's GDP, and in the "State of bustlers", the entire economy rests on the development of hydrocarbons. Not surprisingly, that the senator is not forgotten - his political activities are paid much better than the work of the current president.
Let's delve into the story. The classic error has seized many of the countries of Eastern Europe - the former members of the socialist camp. Poland, included in the European Union in the wake of victory over the ruined and humiliated Russia, as well as Ukraine and Georgia, dreaming to join this collapsing conglomerate, sing the praises to their "liberators". Therefore, on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the Soviet Union collapse, the authorities in Warsaw and Tbilisi erected a monument to man, who called to fight for freedom - Ronald Reagan.
