Georgia’s military adventurism to wrest control over the tiny South Ossetia has more to it than meets the eye. The ‘rose revolution’ which replaced Eduard Shevardnadze by the pro-west Mikhail Saakashvili was the U.S. pet project. The policies pursued by the U.S. in the breakaway states of the Soviet Union – like launching coloured revolutions in the name of ‘export’ of democracy, offering NATO membership to them and installing anti-missile stations around Russia are intended to weaken its erstwhile adversary. The cold war conditions of the pre-1990s have now metamorphosed into a blatant imperialist agenda by the U.S., which intends to spread its tentacles far beyond the Eastern Europe. It is unfortunate that, the U.N has been reduced to a toothless entity, living under the tutelage of the sole superpower.
