Behind The War In Georgia

by | Friday, 22nd August 2008
Mikhail Saakashvili is quite possibly insane.

To get an impression of his mind, it's worthwhile drawing attention to some of his recent statements:

We are the fighting ground for a new world war.
- May 2008

it's time to move from words to action because this is not going to go away. This nation is fighting for it's survival, but we are also fighting for world peace and we are also fighting for a future World Order.
- 10th August 2008.

If Nato fails now to come up with a united response, nobody's safe, even if they are in Nato already ... It's all about reconsidering the role of Nato, the role of international law and borders in this part of the world. This is no longer about Georgia anymore ... Russia decided to win war with Nato without firing a single shot at it.
- Today.

The question is, which drug was he on when he launched the unprovoked attack on South Ossetia, using upgraded versions of World War II era Katyusha rocket batteries?

These are not precision-guided weapons. They fire off six to a dozen rockets at a time over a broad field of fire. There could only ever have been one result - massive civilian casualties - Russian citizens - followed by an intervention from Russia.

Whichever drug he was on at the time, it was surely supplied by drug kingpin George Soros, the man behind the "Rose Revolution" which put Saakashvili in power. Soros, the Hungarian born financier and "philanthropist," is most famous in the UK for crashing Sterling on Black Wednesday. His "philanthropy" began during WWII. Describing his contribution to the Nazi deportation of Jews from Hungary, his father wrote:

As Jews couldn't go to school any more and their teachers couldn't teach, they were ordered to report to Council headquarters. The children were enlisted as couriers under the command of their teachers. My younger son, George, also became a courier. On the second day, he returned home at seven in the evening.

'What did you do all day?'

Mostly nothing. But this afternoon I was given some notices to deliver to various addresses.'

'Did you read what they said?'

"I even brought one home.'

He handed me a small slip of paper, with a typewritten message [a summons].

'Do you know what this means?' I asked him.

'I can guess,' he replied, with great seriousness. 'They'll be interned.'

In the introduction to his father's book, George writes:

It is a sacreligious thing to say, but these ten months [of the Nazi occupation] were the happiest times of my life ... We led an adventurous life and we had fun together.

In the April 2008 issue of Herodote, the magazine of the French Institute for Geopolitics, Salome Zourabichvili, the former French ambassador to Tbilisi who was recruited as Saakashvili's first Foreign Minister before he threw her out in 2005, published a blistering attack on Saakashvili and the Soros NGO apparatus which ran and financed the "Rose Revolution."

These institutions were the cradle of democratisation, notably the Soros Foundation ... all the NGO's which gravitate around the Soros Foundation undeniably carried the revolution. However, one cannot end one's analysis with the revolution and one clearly sees that, afterwards, the Soros Foundation and the NGOs were integrated into power. They abandoned the idea to form a counterpower and left the Georgian society even more defenseless than during the Shevardnadze [regime]. This influence is still measurable since today's outgoing minister of Education came from the Soros Foundation to be replaced recently by someone being himself from the Soros Foundation ... and that observation is true for the totality of Georgian NGOs. If one takes the case of the famous Liberty Institute, it is part of power; it is even the arm of power in society. It is not any longer something outside of power. In this way one could say that the Saakashvili's regime became even more monolithic than its predecessor since there are no more NGOs to be confronted.... Today, the independent NGOs are weak NGOs, which don't dispose of sufficient important American financial support ..

I was discarded from the moment I was succeeding in a very important negotiation for our country: the departure of Russian military bases ... I was close to concluding an agreement on the conflicts in collaboration with the OSCE and the Americans ... I was shown the door in November 2005 and my departure corresponds with the adoption of a more aggressive attitude versus Russia, and rising tensions in the disputed territories [Abkhazia and South Ossetia]. Beyond my own role, one can regret that my departure ended a horizon of pacification which is absolutely necessary for the future.

So, the question is, why would George Soros and his various NGOs and think tanks be interested in Georgia? Why are they filling Saakashvilli's head with the nonsense idea that he is somehow important?

The answer is simple - Russia represents a modern, sovereign, nation state. Russia is the antithesis of the thinking behind the "New World Order."

Even before Putin began his first term as Russian President, as a young, naive, ex-KGB agent, he was in bed with the so-called "oligarchs." That's what Yeltzin had done, after all. But Putin was a patriot, and he quickly realised that these people didn't give a damn about Russia - they were happy to loot the place so that they could buy British football teams. So he began a crusade against these oligarchs, putting some in prison, and exiling others. The modern Russia that Putin built, for all its faults, represents everything that the European Union doesn't, and it's a hurdle to the formation of one world government. Soros, exiled oligarchs, and the forces behind the Lisbon Treaty alike, want Russia gone. Saakashvilli may believe he's a global player, but as I said, he's quite possibly insane.
