IB removed several relevant notable quotes. Labeled them "unnotable" & "Excessive vandalism"
Illegitimate Barrister: It is disconcerting to note that you have removed what any fair minded referee would consider to be notable & very relevant quotes, labeled them as "unnotable" and have undone & labeled all my earnest labors there "vandalism".
Please follow the rules of wikiquotes! Please put them all back.
Clearly we are at opposite poles politically. While I respect you and your views, please let's be civil & above all follow the rules/guidelines of wikiquotes. Fair and balanced, civil, respectful.
Furthermore, please learn the true meaning of the word "vandalism" and refrain from slandering me and/or trying to slam my work ever again (unless it is something that the majority at wikiquotes would consider to be in violation of the rules).
Surely you'll agree that mutual respect for the rules is important for everyone, both long time major contributors to wikiquotes like yourself, and relatively insignificant new comers like me.

To whom it may concern: Below is exactly how the page looked after i worked on it, and before IB came and "sanitized" it to what many would call neocon standards. What should be done? Is there a process that should be followed in this case?

Georgia, the rule of law will prevail, and freedom will be the birthright of every citizen. ~ George W. Bush
It is not by mere chance that we [Georgians] have adopted two very important ideas as our watch words: freedom and responsibility. ~ Zurab Zhvania
Georgia's transformation since 2003 has been remarkable... The lights are on, the streets are safe, and public services are corruption free. ~ World Bank
Threatening Russia, China, North Korea, or Iran with aggressive actions, expanding military alliances near their border, or being open to preventive attacks on them will not improve America’s national security. Daniel L. Davis//>>>referred to as unotable quote/image & vandalism, and removed by IB//
First and foremost, Russians are Georgians and vice versa... The hate rhetoric you read about is manufactured by the NATO trolls and the western elitist media. Phil Butler//>>>referred to as unotable quote/image & vandalism, and removed by IB//

Quotes[edit]

A[edit]

  • The major findings of UNICEF’s new Welfare Monitoring Survey Welfare Monitoring Study (2017) include: General poverty rates in the country increased and a lack of strong and inclusive economic growth, unemployment and increased consumer prices are likely reasons for increased poverty rates...The average out of pocket expenditure on health increased and purchase of medicines remains the main component of healthcare spending. To cope with economic hardships more families resort to borrowing. Use of financial instruments (banks and pawn shops) considerably increased in poor families.

B[edit]

  • You are building a democratic society where the rights of minorities are respected, where a free press flourishes, a vigorous opposition is welcome, and unity is achieved through peace... In this new Georgia, the rule of law will prevail, and freedom will be the birthright of every citizen.
  • NATO experts and Washington think tanks continually mull over geo-strategic mumbo jumbo. Like attorneys create laws to ensure their own usefulness and longevity, war academics invent scenario after scenario in order to get their paychecks. You cannot find an assessment of the Georgia War, for instance, that tells you the real reason Russia did not take over in days... Putin and Medvedev did not take over Georgia in days because they wanted to avoid collateral civilian deaths. The “hybrid conflict” in Georgia had two distinct limiting characteristics. First and foremost, Russians are Georgians and vice versa. Killing off their own people was not something Putin or Dmitry Medvedev wanted... The hate rhetoric you read about is manufactured by the NATO trolls and the western elitist media.

D[edit]

  • It should be a concern to every American that foreign policy leaders openly advocate extending NATO membership to volatile nations on Russia’s border, knowing that doing so might suck the United States into an unnecessary and destructive war with another nuclear power...
  • Extending NATO membership to Georgia—or Ukraine, as others advocate—in no way strengthens U.S. security, but rather unequivocally increases America’s strategic risk...
  • Threatening Russia, China, North Korea, or Iran with aggressive actions, expanding military alliances near their border, or being open to preventive attacks on them will not improve America’s national security. The truth is that no threat or aggressive action towards America’s rivals will strengthen America’s ability to prosper as a nation.

L[edit]

  • Unmentioned by The [New York] Times are: — reasons behind the growing tensions between Washington and Moscow; — the Bush administration’s unilateral abandonment of the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM); — its continued provocations around the world, including in areas sensitive to Russia;— its massive military buildup; — its advocacy for preventive, preemptive and “proactive” wars with first-strike nuclear weapons; — NATO’s role in serving America’s imperial interests;— enlarging it with new member states, including former Soviet republics; — encircling Russia with US military bases; — situating them in former Soviet republics and regional states;— the strategic importance of Georgia for the Anglo-American Caspian oil pipeline; its extension from Baku, Azerbaijan (on the Caspian) through Georgia (well south of S. Ossetia), bypassing Russia and Iran, and across Turkey to its port city of Ceyhan – the so-called BTC pipeline for around one million barrels of oil daily, adjacent to the South Causasus (gas) Pipeline with a capacity of about 16 billion cubic meters annually...

P[edit]

  • Praise be to the heavenly Bestower of Blessings, Praise be to paradise on earth, To the radiant Iberia, Praise be to brotherhood and to unity, Praise be to liberty, Praise be to the everlasting, lively Georgian people!
  • We will respond appropriately to such aggressive steps, which pose a direct threat to Russia. Our colleagues, who are trying to aggravate the situation, seeking to include, among others, Ukraine and Georgia in the orbit of the alliance, should think about the possible consequences of such an irresponsible policy.

W[edit]

  • Georgia's transformation since 2003 has been remarkable... The lights are on, the streets are safe, and public services are corruption free.
