Good for the Georgian officials doing this. Honoring mass murderers even if they did do something good is a symptom of a sick society.

Now if the other organizations, nations and religions that still honor those with gallons of blood on their hands would stop, then maybe some real heroes children can emulate would be easier to discover.

I listened to an interview with Stalin's daughter. She said he died shaking his fist at God. Some role model.

Good point, but so far Russia has the largest number of his statues and memorials.
