The BBC has recently aired a TV report, in which Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili ate his tie.
The report was about the situation in the area of the conflict between Georgia and South Ossetia. The footage showed Saakashvili making a call to a top Western official. It could be clearly seen that Mr. Saakashvili was having a nervous breakdown.
Mikhail Saakashvili has been staying in the full glare of publicity for several weeks already. Specialists of medicine have questions about his mental state, Rossia TV channel says.
His statements, which he makes on one and the same day, may often contradict to each other. Russia’s well-known psychologists claim that the Georgian leader is a mentally unstable individual. Specialists say that Saakashvili’s ambition exceeds his capabilities.
Such mental unbalance leads to irresponsible political decisions, which lead to chaos, human deaths and humanitarian catastrophes.
The Russian foreign minister said Thursday that Georgia could "forget about" getting back the two separatist regions, South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Medvedev also met with their leaders in Kremlin this past week, raising the prospect that Moscow could absorb the regions even though the territory is internationally recognized as being within Georgia's borders.
US President Bush does not even think to stop making ridiculous statements regarding the conflict.
"The world has watched with alarm as Russia invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatened a democratic government elected by its people. This act is completely unacceptable to the free nations of the world, Bush said in his weekly radio address.
Mr. Bush of course believes that the bombing of Yugoslavia, the incursion in Iraq, the recognition of Kosovo’s independence and many other criminal acts are absolutely acceptable to the free nations, of which the USA is the most outstanding example.
Needless to say that it will never occur to either Mr. Bush or Ms. Condoleezza Rice to speak about the nightmare that thousands of South Ossetian residents had to experience after Georgia’s attack on the republic. They do not want even to hear about it.
US major media outlets, controlled by the White House, do not want to report the truth about Georgia’s aggression either. A US girl of South Ossetian origin happened to stay in the unrecognized republic during Georgia’s attack on the territory. She was lucky to leave the troubled nation safe and sound. However, when she appeared in a program of Fox News channel, the TV host did not even let the girl speak a word of truth.
