Kaczynski in Tbilisi: We are here to take up the fight
Created: 13.08.2008 11:18
Polish President Lech Kaczynski delivered a confrontational speech in support of Georgia at a rally in Tbilisi, Tuesday.
We are here to take up the fight. For the first time in years our eastern neighbours show their true face that we have known for hundreds of years, Kaczynski addressed the crowds gathered at a rally in Tbilisi on Tuesday evening.
They think other nations should be subordinated to them. We say no! That country is Russia, Kaczynski shouted to the applauding crowd.
The Polish President accused Russia of still believing the era of the empire was coming back, and that domination was a characteristic of the region. He explained that many nations had been familiar with that domination which had brought disaster upon all of Europe.
In Kaczynskis assessment, the current situation demanded a sharp reaction.
We are here today so that the world reacts even stronger, in particular the European Union and NATO. Some had thought the Presidents were afraid of coming here. No one was afraid! Everyone came!, Kaczynski continued.
The crowds gathered outside the Georgian Parliament in Tbilisi responded enthusiastically to Kaczynskis accusations towards Moscows actions. They shouted, "Poland, Poland, Friendship, Friendship, Georgia, Georgia".
President Lech Kaczynski arrived in Tbilisi late last night and was accompanied by the Presidents and PMs of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Ukraine.
God bless them all.
Great photos, too:)
Would that Poland become the Capitol of a new EU. That’d be great.
God bless him and Poland. God save Georgia.
Ut Oh puttie.....
Gotta love those five former Soviet Bloc nations standing with Georgia.
Former slaves to the Soviets have the strength and courage to stand up for freedom — where the H____ are the foppish
British, French and Germans?
Gives me goose bumps.
Good men. Very good men. Bush should also go.
Men of courage, dignity, integrity and honor! May God Bless them!
Love the Putin poster — says it all!
This is one instance where Polish stubborness (I have it too) is a tremendous asset.
God bless them. Let’s pray that they turn Putin’s adventure into Putin’s folly.
We should let them police their own. Call it vengeance, call it payback, whatever. We’re already quite committed in the Middle East. If they need weapons, we should send them whatever we can. But I don’t think we can spare the manpower.
It would be a good form of poetic justice for the former Satellites to rise up and kick Russia out of Georgia.
I think we can assume Georgia has some decent security if Presidents and Condi are camping out there.
