Saakashvili Says He's Ready To Resign, Mutilate Himself For Separatist Regions

Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili has long been clamoring for Russia to withdraw from his country's two separatist regions.

The Georgian leader made another plea on April 26, saying he was willing to tender his resignation if Russia gives up control of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which Moscow recognized as sovereign states after fighting a war with Georgia in 2008.

Speaking to journalists, Saakashvili reiterated accusations that the Kremlin wants to oust him from power.

On a more bizarre note, Saakashvili said he was even willing to sacrifice parts of his body that Moscow has "shown interest in" -- a hint at then-President Vladimir Putin's infamous 2008 pledge to "hang Saakashvili by the balls."

"In addition, I am ready to cut off and send them those parts of my body which they have shown interest in more than once," Saakashvili said. "I am really ready to do it, and I say this without a hint of irony, as long as they pull out their forces from here and give Georgia's people -- its multiethnic population -- an opportunity to develop within the internationally recognized borders."

The comment, initially broadcast live on Georgian pro-government television, was removed from the interview's subsequent retransmissions.

Long-running tensions between the Kremlin and Saakashvili, centered on his efforts to join NATO and steer Georgia out of Moscow's orbit, have simmered since the end of the 2008 war.

Moscow and Tbilisi have since traded a number of angry barbs and insults.

Saakashvili's proposal to step down and mutilate himself in return for control of Georgia's breakaway regions came just hours after Russian President Dmitry Medvedev called him "a nobody, a zero" destined for "political history."

"Thanks" to Radio Liberty that it finally found time to write about Mr. Medvedev, who rudely insulted Saakashvili
"Russian President Dmitry Medvedev called him "a nobody, a zero"

Now the question:

who ruled Russia for the last 13 years?...and who was the political decoration for the last 4 years?..
How to name a person who has no right to make independent decisions?
Do not tell me, Mr. Medvedev?
All the people of Russia calls Medvedev a nobody,a zero and this is not the fault of Saakashvili but a conscious choice of Medvedev...

They all are "zeroes", they all are "nobodies", the Russia's rulers,
As well as the World at large, the power of treachery, hunger
For accidents of stolen Welshian's "long arrows bows",
Or Peter Bagrationy "pushka" and WW2 to follow,
Usurp all victories for "race war" of usurpers.

Since 1941 mutney of Siberian Divisions rule
With Varaga-Prashka bureaucracy marriage.
Fearing of truth, estafets-generations of gools
Live by "lie for survival", searching knowledge
Of how to rule, remembering Stalin's wording:

- "You're simple, not litterate Russian people,
What will happen to you when I will die, to you
And to your country? You plagiarized all we do,
Deceiving me. When I learned it - your trickled,
Puting me under house arrest - inviting British,
And Americans, join the party of plagio-hoods!"

- "Don't worry Great Russia'll find few dummies
Play Varaga-Prussia Leaders, stealing the ideas
From Konstantin and alike, dying in infamy for us,
The one whose rights you tried to defend in 1947,
Now you are locked-up and we'll suck his brains."

The rest of the World is no better - starting WW2,
Because to many non-Brito-Russo-Germo people
Became known in art and science, to name a few:
Einshtein, Bor and others in Phisics made ripples.

I denied them in 1947, they sentenced me to death
And all my life go after me and others, to plagiarize,
Or to assassinate - plagiarizing prorities and wealth
Over my denying, army of telepaths and spies prye
Till now, using NLW and Hypnosis, bend my health.

Before I leaved to USA in 1980, they tortured me too,
Demanding to give Patrushev and Putin ideas to rule
And their generals ideas to expand, turning it to brue.
I denied them, but escaped with partial memory loss.
Forever I think or wright here, they pass to their Boss.

The both "Tiers" polish their deads, using what I write,
Not so slicky do much better than Antuanette's cakes.
Their aggression of Feudal nobodies against all of us
And other nations - even against some Russia's best,
As hate to labours, cannot be saved by May First fakes.

Saakashvilli is lying as usual. He has no balls to trade. His rump pathetic dictatorship only exists due to US government bankrolling his clan at the expense of US taxpayers. As soon as money stop (and they will stop sooner or later), the remnants of the rump dictatorship will disintegrate. More free and democratic countries will emerge from leftovers of "republic of Georgia": Adzharia, Swaneti, etc, without endless chain of Tbilisi dictators in control.

I suspect this is not "Jack from US" but "Yakov from Moscow," from the gov't office tasked with commenting on all stories related to Russia. Note the improper grammar ("As soon as money stop") and the Russian use of the word "money" in plural ("and they will stop").

I suspect the lying canniballisticly Russian "Jack"
That with all Russia stole CIS sossage and eat,
Including Georgian land and property they rack,
Is not "Yakov from Moscow" but "Krylov's cat".
He must be "Ivan-anticemite" - in "Jack" heat,
Or aparatchik, employed by "Ivan-anticemite".

Mishka will only go when his puppeteers decide to stop playing with his strings. This is nothing short of propaganda. Abkhazia and Alania will NEVER return to Georgia.

What is it -Alania?
This оssetians invented the tale of their alleged ancestors, who never existed..
But now there are оssetians who live in a strange land, stealing Putin's money, doing looting and steal livestock..
We must add that when the оssetians looted and burned Georgian villages, they burned the books of Tolstoy, Goethe, Druon, Hugo ..
They also have architect who have built really nothing, but went to Europe to cut people, as a reward for the killing he received a medal for bravery...

Time to change the name of Frank and take a new- Liar...

Alania has been documented by ancient Europeans, Arabs and others. They were supreme warriors and leaders in the region. You must be quite uneducated if you do not know anything about the word ALANIA. In regards to your rather bizarre and deluded claims that Ossetians burned Georgian villages (when was this? you people seem to change the dates and instances of these so called "attacks" quite often so I cannot keep up!) I'll just attribute this to a desperate attempt to create drama and confusion in regards to the Alanian people. You really should make a more concise attempt to make your propaganda believable, Vakhtang from "Moscow" ..........or should I say, Georgian government minion who gets a small paycheck to write this trash online all the time? haha!

Frank, Alania was the area much further north, between the Volga and Don river basins, where the Ossetians settled on their migration from Persia (they speak a form of Persian you know...) they were pushed south into the north Caucasus in the 12th century by the Mongols. They are recent immigrants (in the time frame of the Caucasus) to both the north Caucasus, and to the area known as Shida Kartli/South Ossetia where they did not become a majority until the late 19th early 20th century when they displaced the native Georgians, and did not become a majority in Tskhinvali until the late 1960's.

Andrew, you are truly mistaken I'm afraid about the Ossetian history. First of all, they never migrated from Persia. There is of course some history that talks of cooperation between them and Persians, but this is due to the sort of arrangement that they had with the Romans while fighting against the Goths and other meddling peoples of that time. It is also untrue that their language is a "form of Persian". There is many words borrowed from Persian that is in Ossetian, but there is no conclusive proof that this is a Persian dialect of any kind. Ironically, on the other hand, there is documented evidence that the Georgians, especially the Qartvelyans, are from Persia and the Middle East. You must read medieval church records and see what they say for these people, not to mention medieval records to noting this. It would not make sense if Armenians have Persian roots, and Azeris have Turkic/Persian roots, but Georgians do not? I will investigate your claim about them not being from their current southern capital Tskhinval, although I suspect that this is already untrue as well.

He should do it. I think this act would be received by the Russian public similar to how the self-burning Vietnamese monks were received by the American public. Would Putin give his balls for Russia? Would Medvedev?

Saakashvili's "bizarre" offer to "resign and mutilate" himself should surprise none who have seen this crackpot eat his tie (perhaps after eating his hat)! After all, what should one expect from a "Harvard" man? (Look what we're getting from our own former Harvard Law Review editor). Any questions?
In any case, virtually all of his neighbors (except for his Turkish "allies", of course) must be laughing and celebrating, saying "It couldn't happen too soon"!

Sahakasvilli must accept , he does not have any land to give up. Aphazia and Osetia are old history for Geaorgia. There is an explanation BACK THEN :)
If Georgia would not threaten Abhazia everyday, Russia would not be stay Abhazia. We did not forget when Sahakasvilli was biting his TIE. That picture is my still favorite ,. Remember stay away from us. If you like to bite your tie , it is another physiological issue which he has a lot

@Berrin Ashba :) you are candidate. Russians are in Abkhazia since 300 or more years. They never go. They will never if your men will not fight against them like men. Cowardly child, is put his father's murder's hand. Russia is murder of your ancestors, Russia was deport 70.000 or more Abkhazians. Have not you a memory, you Abkhazians, are you fishes ? i am not proud with dirty foot smelling Georgian shovenism. But Abkhaz people can not understand that their land occupied by Russia - may be forever...

Russians were not in Abkhazia because the Abkhaz wanted them there, firstly. Georgians actually started that trend by allowing them to use their town Tbilisi as a base to strike against Caucasians. Next, Georgians fought with Russians against these people in the Russo-Caucasians Wars. So in a way, Georgians helped to create the problems that came from this war and they were rewarded for this behavior. It is very sad and pitiful for you to make such a dumb comment without revealing all this truth. And you know? Abkhazia did not ask Russia to see it as independent, this is was purely political move. The only way Abkhazia can leave from this is for Georgia to stop its stupid campaign and recognize it as free. Then, we can have some peace for once in the Caucasus. But Georgia will not do this, because it is a puppet of the US and Israel. So, Abkhazia is in a problem and Georgians must really not feel any shame to make these stupid words to them, because they are the ones who helped to create this problem. Learn some real history, my son.
