Looks Like the Georgian Reporters Were Right . . .

It looks like the Georgian reporters were right when they predicted very serious property redistribution after the death of one of the Arab sheikhs who owned a sea port and an airport in the Georgian city of Poti. You see itís turned out that he also controlled some illegal businesses like drug trade, prostitution, arms trade and even enriched uranium smuggling! Itís believed the Georgian authirities as well as her president Saakashvili were all head over ears in it. Probably itís so... at least I can see no other way how to set a thing like that without Saakashviliís knowing it.
Well to cut it short, the result it that I wouldnít advise anyone to go to Poti now, while some say itís better to keep out of Georgia at all. You see, when our ship was leaving the damned port in Poti lots of squads of the Georgian cops was patrolling the streets but anyway they couldnít keep the situation under control. Actually they couldnít protect themselves let alone other people. In fact our captain says it may well be even worse now in Georgia than it was afterthe murder of Badri Patarkatsishvili when there was total chaos really. All in all itís indeed pretty nasty...
