Georgians want warmonger Saakashvili out

From British daily The Guardian:

Thousands gather for street protests against Georgian president

Biggest anti-government rally since last summer’s war with Russia to demand resignation of Mikheil Saakashvili

Opposition politicians accuse Saakashvili of presiding over an increasingly authoritarian and repressive regime.

They have also attacked him over his handling of the conflict with Russia last August, sparked when he attempted to recapture the breakaway region of South Ossetia. …

Saakashvili’s youthful, mainly western-educated team came to power praised by the former US president George Bush as a “beacon of liberty”.

But the light has faded, and diplomats say Barack Obama’s administration will be less forgiving.

Today the opposition leader, Nino Burjanadze, said police had detained 60 of her supporters.
