Triangle
03 November, 2011
Triangle

Let us put together America’s customary presence of mind and traditional romanticism in foreign affairs, Russia’s longstanding but currently-crippled love for Georgia and Georgia’s conventional readiness to embrace both of them as friends and partners, and we will receive the latently-desired geopolitical Triangle which might surprise the world not only with its freshness of thought but with an amazingly practicable resolution of one of the acutest contemporary conflicts, blocking the way to so many good things to happen around. 

What is

after all so difficult about the dream come true? Do this and the tired-of-other-people’s-problems United States will relax, having dropped off of its permanently overloaded and overstrained neck the annoying pain it has been enduring since the bygone times of Gorbachev’s ill-fated Perestroika. Do this and the good old Russia will restart enjoying the cherished return of the Prodigal Son in much-improved spirit and shape. Do this and Georgia will finally get back its recently-lost lands and proceed to better future as happily as never before! With this project on mind, as brilliant as it could get as time passes, the Good is acquiring a huge chance to become a definite winner against the Evil. It takes just a little thought of each of the Triangle makers to understand that the project is feasible enough to come to fruition in the nearest future. The only thing they have to do is to sit together in front of a fireplace like old pals and discuss all presumable pros and cons of the situation as wisely and congenially as possible. The world has known worse confrontations than the extant contradiction between the gigantic Russia and the minuscule Georgia, and the world has successfully coped with almost all of them. What seems to be badly needed now is the triangular handling of the conflict, the triangular approach to every debacle on the way to its resolution, the triangular prism of vision of the future, the triangular wisdom and triangular respect for preferences and priorities. Is this possible? Why not? All is in human hands. The world is governed by a human being – with God’s help of course! And in this case too the humans need to be as humane and sage as they have ever been when successfully coping with pending difficulties of the current moment. There is nothing impossible if the Triangle operates accordingly on behalf of the mankind. Nobody in the world needs hurt feelings and broken hearts, developing animosity and threatening catastrophes, snatched territories and lost pride, sitting in ambush and casting rocks at each other, angry looks and pouted lips, mudslinging and subterfuges, histrionics and ruined opportunities. We are all suffering from the conflicts that are not resolved. And the suggested Triangle is us. Just us! Let’s get the job done once and for all. Let the Triangle be given a chance to work and deliver as profusely as it could in the best possible case scenario. The Triangle I am talking about could – in case it is built some day – work wonders if tuned and target-oriented correctly. I am personally toasting to the suggested Triangle, which leaves everybody happy once it does its job and retires until another case of conflict materializes, Lord forbid!
