Saakashvili considers the risk of a new war with Russia, the real

Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili told the BBC that he was ready to defend their country in the event of new military invasion from Russia, which he did not renounced its intention to overthrow him.
A few days before the first anniversary of the conflict over South Ossetia, Saakashvili said he had not counted on the military assistance to the West, noting that in the past year, this assistance has been slow and inadequate.

However, he stressed that nothing has spared, and considers the risk of new war real.

"I never give up their tasks, even as bad as the protection of the country from destruction, and economic oppression. Should we resist? Should we fight back if they go at us again? Yes, we will resist. But it nightmarish scenario ", - said Saakashvili.

Meanwhile, many associates of former Georgian president were leaders of the opposition.

Nino Burjanadze, a former Speaker of the Georgian parliament and one of the leaders of the "Rose Revolution", said she also feels a new war unlikely, because neither Russia nor the current Georgian authorities did not differ particularly predictable. "

"Honestly, I do not think that Russia now must be beneficial to begin a new confrontation with Georgia, because it seems to me that thanks stupid steps Saakashvili Russia has received more than expected to obtain in the past year," - she added.

Irakli Alasania in August 2008 represented Georgia in the United Nations and sought to condemn the actions of Russia. He now heads the opposition party Our Georgia - Free Democrats.

"The international community does not recognize and will never recognize those realities, that Russia wants to create after the war of aggression in Georgia in the occupied territories of Russia", - he said, meaning Russia unilaterally recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

But he believes that the war could begin again.

"The escalation of the situation can happen at any moment, because now there are no effective international mechanisms for preventing conflict", - said Alasaniya Russian Service BBC, pointing to the withdrawal of most international observers, Georgia, largely under pressure from Russia.

Nino Burjanadze commented on the many skeptical public statements of President Saakashvili in recent days.

"The only thing they do clever - is PR steps - she said. - That, in principle, provide a quick and one-time effect, but does not address the underlying problems."

Earlier, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili said his country has neither the desire nor the ability to fight with Russia, because this war is comparable to suicide. But he noted that Russia is seeking a new war with his country. "The issue is not about whether Georgia wants war with Russia, the matter is that Russia wants war with Georgia," - added the President.

In turn, Russia suggests that Georgia is preparing for a new military aggression, said Deputy Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces Colonel General Anatoly Nogovitsyn.
