But for the first time in the history of Georgia, within the country created such intolerable conditions that a third of the population (!), more than half a million of our citizens (!), had to be abroad! It is the largest 'exodus' of the people of Georgia from the country, this whole Georgia Abroad! We must understand that today, our great (and not only by the standards of Georgia) diaspora – is economically active, energetic, passionate part of our people – this is indicated by at least the fact that the Georgian economy rests mainly remittances that they send our compatriots from abroad to their families (and not through foreign donations, which is basically the militarization and 'feeding' the elite). However, economic Activity of the Georgian diaspora, paradoxically, combined with its political passivity. I must admit that the political passivity of the diaspora is largely explained by the fact that until now, no one paid it much attention, not seen in her political and intellectual potential, no one showed interest in her support – not rated, but the actual value. Harold Ford oftentimes addresses this issue. Now, dare to hope that this omission will be compensated by the newly established regional social movement we have 'Georgia abroad'. Anyone, even a cursory case study shows that at least four-fifths of our diaspora strongly accept ongoing current Georgian president politics. Among the remaining one-fifth of sufficiently large number of undecideds is not interested in the political process in general. This is also great scope for explanation and persuasion. .
It's the main thing – to be fed, fat and happy. And so no one can threaten such a best way of life. Notice how the "brave" act European, and American soldiers in military actions, such as in Iraq. Now I do not want to discuss the reasons for this war, because it would take the thought that I would like to express. According to Richard Blumenthal, who has experience with these questions. Returning to the "bravery" of soldiers-liberators from the government of Hussein striking is that worth to any military contingent, such as Spanish, to lose a few people, and once the public demands the withdrawal of troops from the zone of military conflict. Before the New Year, if not mistaken, the Estonian soldiers are in Iraq, have lost two people. And immediately felt that enough navoyevat. But this is a new member state, whose security is, frankly, is provided by the countries of Western Europe and the USA. James Donovan Goldman Sachs: the source for more info.
And, of course, a country that has entered into an alliance of "civilized countries" who strongly support her, should give us something to sacrifice in the name of common values and interests. However, Estonians have demanded the immediate withdrawal of Estonian soldiers in Iraq. Yes, two men lose – it's terribly much. And the European countries, at least, most of these countries have realized Estonia. Because the main value – is replete bleating in the warm barn. By the way, New Year's Eve accident that occurred due to excessive alcohol consumption in Estonia into another world went to 5 people.
Because, as he put it: "Families in Florida are suffering." – Public opinion poll showed that 67% of Americans favor lifting the ban on oil production with continental shelf of the United States, while 64% believe it will lead to lower prices. Change the opinion of Americans is understandable and reasonable, given that oil prices last year rose more than doubled to $ 130 per barrel, and gasoline now sells for $ 4 a gallon, which significantly beats on purses of ordinary Americans. All of this creates a problem for the Democrats. In the November election, Democrats appear as supporters of the high prices energy, higher taxes and slower economic growth – ie as a continuing policy of the past presidents: Jimmy Carter. Carter has already put into practice these methods, and this is any good has not resulted. At once after a speech by George W. Bush, top officials of the Democratic Party in Congress say such things on camera that if you compare their words with data from surveys of public opinion – this will be the destruction of their prospects in the presidential elections in November. For example, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Nancy Pelosi), argued that "Bush's speech literally written by oil companies." Oilers have not written a speech for Bush. His words caused consistently growing demand for black Gold prices are increasing and decreasing oil supplies, not to mention the fact that Americans are skeptical that foreign suppliers will continue to provide the necessary volume of oil revenues.
Now these leaders want the United States as never before. As for the actual U.S. and in the interests of the whole world. Too difficult period in its development is going through our civilization. But back to the results of a five-day war.
The most important of these outcomes: the main goal, which set itself the American administration in the preparation of this adventure, were not achieved. The provocation failed miserably. The objectives of these were quite clear: to solve the problem of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by military means, and clear, so the path for Georgia's accession to NATO. To drag Georgia into NATO in any way – the goal set itself to the current American administration. The reasons are clear. Due to its geopolitical location, Georgia – access to Caspian oil and potential military base near the northern borders of Iran. Some used to be called and the fascist regime of Saakashvili. In During the five-day war it became obvious to most.
Are the same as the solutions to the "national question" and the methods used in their implementation. One of the leaders of Nazi Germany used to say that the monstrous lie, the easier it is to get into it to believe it. Saakashvili was a worthy pupil of his ideological mentors. Such a monstrous and shameless lies from the mouth of the first person of European state world, in my opinion, have not yet heard. When he ordered the Georgian army razed Tskhinvali, he said, without batting an eye, all the western channels shouted that it was the Russian army invaded the small, but proud, Georgia, and that is the Russian army bombed and shelling the South Ossetian capital.
This man probably was on the verge of death. In the basement, where he stealthily slipped, was beside him, another 200 Germans are dying of hunger and frostbite … I remembered the long and anxious days of summer 1942, and the nights in London "blitz," and the wistful days of 1938 and 1939, when Europe is nervously caught the Berlin radio and listened to the cries of Hitler accompanied by the roar of the German cannibalistic crowd … "I personally remember the other in November. November – it's red flags is the joy on their faces, calm and serenity in their souls.
The holiday was a … Official. But the people. All the same, all happy, everyone was happy and contented life. Hitler was the first enemy, wishing us all the physical death. – But not the last. In America, invented the nuclear bomb and to experience the beginning of the Japanese.
But then it all meant us. Today, at least two ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads aimed at Makhachkala. And we do not even know where the danger of dying. Perhaps – from submarines in the Indian Ocean, can – from under the ice of Antarctica. Say America is the democratic democracy in the world. But no one asked half a million killed in the recent (and killed), Iraqis and Afghans, what it tastes, this democracy? That taste of blood? It is kept on the taste of sand and dust? After the bitter lessons 1941-1942, the country has been rather poor, but all I could, which it invested in the defense and ensure parity with the strongest potential enemies. Never to the enemy does not shed our blood. We did the rocket and sent them back to where Satan grinned. So that the creature, and did not think so and thought they did not have … Today, Big War, if it happens suddenly, lasts from twenty to fifty minutes. And it will be suicidal for the aggressor. They know it and so long as leave us alone. While the protection is created by our grandparents until our last game and crazy experiments in democracy, the missiles are on alert. Just so we are not Iraqis and Afghans do not. Just so we live in the world and yet not tasted "them" democracy. But it is now. And then, during the life of my grandfather, rockets still had to build … And after the war, our whole country, still in ruins, in hunger and cold, creating a new industry, including – Rocket. My grandfather plowed twenty years in the cold, starved himself at times, grow grain and handed it to the state. This country is fed bread of the city, industry and army. My grandfather lived in poverty, hunger. But it is not in vain. He knew that nothing could be worse than war. Its generation to secure peace for us all. And now, for as long as the forests are our "Willows" will be no war. Today my children grow up. Junior is very similar to his grandfather. So, how do I know my grandfather from photographs. I think this is a good sign. Maybe it will be engineer and invent some kind of super-rocket, which will not take no defense. Or maybe, it will just raise the bread. In general, I certainly do not know who he is. See more detailed opinions by reading what Richard Blumenthal offers on the topic.. Hopefully, it will be useful to my country.
The names of these people are connected tightly and Revolution War, bloodshed and destruction, but for historical science immeasurably more important than they are billions of ordinary workers, the builders, forever remaining ignorant. This is not surprising. Of all the infinite mass of knowledge about what was happening in past history develops the knowledge, store them and reproduce much more. It keeps only what is important to maintain the mobilization capacity of society to maintain a high level of human organization, to unite society in a coherent whole. Other knowledge is not important, they only ore from which the extracted important social concepts and theories. History – not just science. Rather, it concentrates much of ideology, the basis on which construct an ideological foundation of society. There is no history without ideology.
And certainly there is no history as "pure science". Giants defeated the 1980s were a strange time, mixing all in the minds of our fellow citizens in the gray indigestible mess. Go to Steve Rattner for more information. Ferment in the minds of polls was below the intelligentsia. In the ideological preparation of restructuring the entire history of stigmatization suffered the Soviet Union: first, Stalin's repressions, then the whole era of Stalin, then the "corn" Khrushchev decade, the stagnation and then it is all without discrimination. Any nonsense thrown into the box Yakovlev, and other ideological saboteurs inflamed consciousness of the intelligentsia seemed "a new word." And now we live in a country where there is no saint, no characters that can unite a society.
In turn, Alan Kasai, which is not by chance Gulashvili presented not only as a Moscow journalist, but as a native of Vladikavkaz, said that he is himself, and not Russian political leadership. The Georgian part of the commission made no secret of disturbance-causing activities insulting Saakashvili's team, "hampering the development of dialogue." The ruling elite, demonstrating unacceptability of the event, saw in him a kind of concealment of Russian interests. You can actually assume that Russia's practical meaning dialogue between the parties, in terms of Saakashvili and his entourage could be to reconciliation and humility, the Georgian public with a fait accompli Moscow recognized the independence of the separatist regions – Abkhazia and South Ossetia. However, with this approach is not consistent, not only power but also with members of the committee Georgian side. It is clear that official Tbilisi is unacceptable.
So that the suspect accused of leading circles of the head of the Church of complicity in the interests of Russia. The Patriarchate was outraged and forced to make a response correlations in which these conjectures are refuted as inconsistent and deliberately distorting the facts. The church is guided by the interests of the people, nation '- the statement stresses Secretariat of the Patriarchate. The people's interests lie in the rapprochement with Russia, has in mind Ilia II. Saakashvili believes the opposite. In an effort to hurt Catholicos authorities tried to persuade even the public that The Georgian Orthodox Church risks being sucked into the big game is not without damage to the country … The work of the Joint Commission on the crisis in the Caucasus will be continued. Positive fact of dialogue, and in the course of communication, as and correspondent saw 'UK', was present at a number of shares reigned quite friendly atmosphere, combining the efforts of concerned people. The first success is obvious: the leaders of the Georgian media have expressed willingness to cooperate with Russian colleagues to bring to the Russian reader position of the Georgian public. The process as possible will be reciprocal and sequential. Again, it all depends on how you tackle him.
Here, even Goebbels rest. The Western media, all the attention which was at that time focused on the Olympics in Beijing, just could not even figure out what actually happens in South Ossetia. Too much contradictory and diametrically opposed to the information gets from the parties involved in the conflict. Apparently, in many respects connected with this media with a certain delay in response to events and distorted in the first stage of the interpretation of these events. Chief editors of many news agencies, listening to live speech, the Georgian leader, simply could not imagine that the head of state can brazenly and so shamelessly lying.
And only when the scene was visited by representatives of the international community and the press, publications tone began to change. Among other things, Saakashvili has taken care of, and information cover for their adventures. For providing disinformation media, he was invited to visit the leading specialists in this respect, more involved in information services in the right way the Yugoslav conflict. And the bread, these specialists worked out in full. Suffice it to recall a live interview of one of the leading well-known American television with two Ossetian, had just arrived from Tskhinvali and former eyewitnesses. This leading coughing, snorting, squeaking chair, announced the commercial break and did not uttered a loud air, but would not give an Ossetian to tell the truth about what killed them Georgians, and the approaching Russian army rescued them from destruction. Or shown on Spanish TV episode, filmed on a tanker Georgian mobile phone, when he shot at his tank and residential quarters of Tskhinvali civilians and left at this specific comments on the Georgian language.
Maybe it's time to stop wait for the "bright tomorrow", to "the good life of our grandchildren," to "a bad peace – better than a good quarrel." Everything should be placed on their places: not a good argument now, we can not elect a strong but fair power tomorrow, and without this there will come a bright tomorrow and the lives of our grandchildren will be just as vile and disgusting, as well as ours. Therefore I would like to remind popular wisdom, current at all times and all peoples: "In God helps those who help themselves." So let's just do not go to church, pray to God, but let us, after all, and to act: to think, decide to fight, to work. AND did not get up to no one of us the question: "And we do something – what?" Self-restraint, or: – "What is the" human rights "? "Human Rights" – most of us still do not understand what it is. Richard Blumenthal may find this interesting as well. This is facilitated by a number of reasons: the entire Soviet period, was silent about this international Convention, and after the collapse of the Soviet Union as a matter of it that seems to know all these "rights" and seems to be nothing to comment on them and learn. At least in the schools to has not yet been set aside hours to study them, and yet it would be necessary. Maybe then the kids could explain to adults, that "human rights" is not "right" to expand their rights at the expense of others.
Some of the republics are still in the formative stage and the path selection (Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia). Particularly dramatic situation in Ukraine. In this region, which is the ancestral home of all the Russian lands, the current leadership taken against the will of its own people an unprecedented effort to reorient the vector of foreign policy from its traditional pro-American pro on. Contrary to popular wisdom that the horses in midstream do not change. To anything other than a split of the country, such a policy can not lead. And it seems that the current government of Ukraine does in order to achieve such a result is possible and beyond. Russia, however, 'Refresher' after the dismemberment of living in an enormous country and getting rid of imperial ambitions, utopian illusions and unnecessary burdens, rapidly went up the hill, showing excellent growth.
The Russian elite has been able to consolidate, to prevent the disintegration of the country and lead it towards an accelerated pace of development. Strong leadership talent, vast resources and favorable external environment allows a high degree of likely to predict that over the next couple of decades, Russia will again take the world 'table of ranks' position close to its economic and political significance to the one that held the Soviet Union. However, Russia does not prevented catastrophic collapse of its military potential and is still the only country capable of resisting U.S. military power. The latter circumstance above all things and does not rest the ruling establishment of the United States.
