Beyker draws attention, except that rather restrained criticism of Russian military operations in Georgia, official Washington has not made any other steps to assist Tbilisi.
"Although U.S. maintain excellent working business with Saakashvili ordinary Realpolitik requests to maintain good relationship — despite numerous provocations — with Moscow, "- writes Beyker. According to the correspondent, metropolitan Washington’s position in support of Iran’s nuclear programs from either the neutrality of in other fundamental issues for the U.S. geopolitics prevails seriousness Georgian issue for American politicians.
The question that the U.S. and its allies could do after the invasion of Russian troops in Georgia, the South American political scientist also says Edward Joseph in the "International Herald Tribune". Joseph comes to the conclusion that a strong signal consolidation in the face of the West Russian operation in Georgia, which is not provoked to unsafe mess in geopolitics, would be the adoption of Macedonia into NATO. "Macedonia can lay 1,200 miles south of Georgia, but its neighbor is Kosovo — the government, whose declaration of independence nedavneshnee Our homeland was used to raise the voltage around South Ossetia and Abkhazia", — says Joseph. "Inviting presently Macedonia, NATO sent to RF just three reported. In 1-x, said Moscow would — yes as Georgia and its neighbors — that NATO continues to move decisively extension method … In-2, from the Balkans to the Caucasus signal would go about preserving the integrity of the small countries. Lastly, Moscow would have received a clear signal that the West does not talerue "frozen conflicts", in Georgia or in the adjacent Macedonia Kosovo where our homeland is very supportive of those Serbs who oppose the new country. "
In the "Washington Post" last Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev argues that the roots conflict in South Ossetia seeks 1991, when Georgia eliminated pavdnevaasetynskuyu autonomy. According to Gorbachev, Saakashvili had the courage to intervene militarily in South Ossetia, being sure to get the support from the West. Gorbachev clearly gives recognize that Tbilisi pinned its hopes first on the South American support. "If the problem of South Ossetia and Abkhazia flared first time I proposed to solve them by the federation, which has allowed both republics have broad autonomy. Then rejected this idea, especially Georgians. Approaches uniformly changed, but after last week will be even harder reach awareness even on such basis, "- writes Gorbachev.
"New York Times" editorial in the current material claims that Saakashvili "unreasonable drawn into the Russian trap" when he sent troops into the breakaway South Ossetia. But the paper does not find any justification for the Russian military response, which, according to the editors, it was also planned as a lesson for Ukraine, so that she was in no hurry to join NATO. "The Emperor Saakashvili should quit their ambitions to control with 2 [breakaway] regions. His miscalculation brought up the fact that his army defeated and the country caused huge loss" — the newspaper. — "The United States and Europe also have a good look own future relations with Russia. None none the other side protested loudly and quite impressive when Tsar Putin used the Russian oil and gas to blackmail own neighbors, advancing to the larynx free press in Russia or chased and threw in a bullpen own opponents. "
Analyst our radio Daniel Kimizh in his article posted on the English-speaking web site of Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty, writes that Moscow wants to show its own operation in Georgia Our homeland that — the only country that can and will use military force to protect its interests in the CIS area. "The new order that Moscow would be willing to build after the war with Georgia, the Russian Federation — is itself, in which our own homeland guards zone impacts on the territory of the former Russian Union using military force only by choice, and the role of "international society" limited to audio applications, "- writes Kimizh.
