Saakashvili Train Stopped, Gonna Hoof it now!
« on: 20:36 10-Sep-2017 »
   I was going to say derailed, but...
Poroshenko got Saakashvili's train stopped in Poland, short of the border.  Fans will note he was not only accompanied by supporters, but also by Tymoshenko, which of course is bad optics.  Saakashvili now plans to walk into Ukraine.  No news about whether the passengers want a refund on their tickets.

Ukraine Seeks to Prevent Saakashvili's Entry by Blocking Train

Sounds like some serious shit may go down.   

Yulia Tymoshenko is on the train; and she disgusts me.

Let's see if it's real or a show.   

It may all be a show.    Maidan part II?   I don't think so. 

"Local police detained more than 100 people in camouflage clothing who were carrying pepper spray, a starter pistol and ?metal stuff? as they approached the checkpoint."

I'm expecting the price of Khachapuri to double by Christmas time.

Saakashvili was "Swept" into Ukraine with a crowd of people not pleased with the border being closed:

Interesting. 

I wonder if this will technique will work for avoiding a TRP too. 

Let's see what happens.  Waiting with bated breath.  [Cue theme from Jaws.]

If nothing else, this means Poroshenko isn't ready for the optics of police beating opposition figures with sticks and dragging them to jail.  Not yet, anyway.

If any members are successful with this approach please post here.

On a more serious not I spotted a guy overstayed recently by two days and got a 90 day ban. OK It's FB and could be BS but it looks like things are tightening up.

I am the shadow of the waxwing slain.. by the false azure of the windowpane...

Maybe he's just butt hurt because he can't return for 90 days and called a ban.  I used to call it exile, but that doesn't make it so.  :)

I have 2 diferents opinions about that.

 1) This is really a good theater. It can not be so easy cross the border in a country in war.
2) If is so easy for Saakashvili let?s imagine how easy is for Russian army.

Apparently Chechen assassins have only to show their special, Murder Incorporated credentials, and get VIP treatment at the border.

Ukraine let's Tymoshenko in and out of Ukraine....so why not any other criminal, hobo or soldier?
Peace is the failure of the military to convince the government that it can and should kick its enemies ass.

Police, including border guards visible in the lobby of the Leopolis hotel, where Saakashvili is staying in Lviv.  I expect they are just trying to find him, because they want to stamp his passport.

If it's not theatre, and it may be, Timishenko (let's just call her "Timmy") is likely waiting for an opportunistic moment to seize Sakashvili's support once he's murdered or shipped off to Georgia to be murdered.   

I'll be voting for Darth Vader in the next election.

Realistically, Ukraine's foreign sponsors have to be applying pressure and threats that a tranche of funding will be delayed, etc.   Unlike Yanukovych or Yuschenko, Poroshenko can't so easily sell Ukraine to the next highest bidder as he leans toward the dark side with his buyer's remorse for democracy.

For Tymo, it is definitely theater.  The gas princess wouldn't be caught dead on a train, otherwise.  She must still have at least some of her fleet of nine private jets from back in the day.
