Preparations for Freedom Rally in Tbilisi Georgia

I am sure the Georgian government is well stocked up on tear gas and rubber bullets and it can always turn to Baku for extra when needed.

These are the specs...

One only need to look to even back last April in Baku,  the violent crackdown conducted by the police, and the strong arm tatics, and that the US State Department did nothing to stop the abuse of basic freedoms, as Azerbaijan produces oil. It is no wonder why there is such a mess in the world now with the blowback of double standards in US foreign policy.

Azerbaijani police and Ministry of Internal Affairs claim that only 350 people attempted to gather near the Piazza della Fontana but it was really upwards of 5,000. It is going to be interesting to see how the Georgia government will respond to cries to toss the crooked bastards out - and give the country back to the people and get back on track with real democratic reforms. Georgia has a good role mode. in Azerbaijan an Armenia when it comes to democracy. How many will be beaten and arrested, as this is OK as it is done in other countries.

As with Saakashvili,  the Aliyev regime maintains zero tolerance for any threatening public demonstrations, and has gone to all lengths to create a pseudo oppostion to show that democracy is alive and deal, and has not been stillborn since the events of November 7, 2007. 

Will history be repeating itself?
