    Background of the Area

    The key player is Sandra Elisabeth Roelofs (born December 23, 1968) who is the Dutch-First Lady of Georgia, the wife of President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili. She acquired Georgian citizenship in January 2008 and is now a dual Dutch-Georgian citizen.

    She was born in Terneuzen, Netherlands.

    Given the mix that represents the population of Georgia and the fact that South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Adjaria not suitably disposed to be a part of Georgia and with the drubbing Georgian Army was subjected to by the South Ossetians, it will take much to bring these breakaway provinces back into the Georgrian fold.

    What makes the issue more tenuous is the fact that these breakaway regions have a backing of Russia.

    It is obvious that Sandra Elisabeth Roelofs is keen to ensure that her unstable husband, President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili remains in office for a greater duration as have Georgia as a bulwark to Russia as desired by the US, which in the first place propped Saaskashvilli in office. And that is not feasible if the demographic equation is not tweaked.

    What could be better for her than have her own (Dutch) proliferate amongst the Georgian population? While native Dutch may not be amenable to shift base, the racist Boers who rue the loss of the white supremacy in South Africa, proves to be the ideal Dutch to inhabit Georgia and proliferate. Being white racists, they would be more aggressive since they would not like to be displaced a second time by Russian, if the latter invades and hence would fight relentlessly.

    While the idea may be ideal for Saaskashvilli and his wife, this move to import the Boers by giving them greater concessions that are not given to the locals, it will only breed resentment.

    Therefore, Georgia would become a greater tinderbox that it is right now.

    Maybe that would be the ideal scenario that the US and West wants wherein they can intervene and make their presence permanent.

    I don't think the people of Georgia will some one from an alien land come to their country and exploit them, just because the first lady comes from a similar origin as the Boers. And if this thing does take place and the situation goes out of hands, then the native population will be more violent against this group than the blacks in South Africa were, I believe.

    There is a greater game in play.

    The US has a role in all this.

    I agree if Georgia wanted they could have worked with Ukranian farmers; not farmers from another continent.
