Destabilization in the North Caucasus: Georgian President Saakashvili “Ready for New War”?

Georgia’s President Mikhail Saakashvili and his supporters are ready to start a new war and plunge the country into chaos again. A statement to that effect came from the leader of the opposition “Democratic Movement – United Georgia” Party, ex-Speaker of parliament Nino Burdjanadze.

The party’s statements circulated on Saturday say the Georgian parliament is acting behind Russia’s back preparing an address to the people and legislatures of North Caucasian republics which may destabilize the situation in the North Caucasus given the current circumstances.

The opposition statements say Saakashvili is pushing the country into war because he is fully aware that his days as president are over but he prefers to be expelled by Russia rather than toppled by the people of Georgia.
