The spiraling conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed province of Nagorno-Karabakh has suddenly intensified.

Nagorno-Karabakh is technically part of Azerbaijan, but its population is 99% Armenian Christian and has its own local military, which is backed by the Armenian state. The Azeri government seeks to assert full control over the region and violently evict its native population.

The alliances in the war are counter-intuitive. Azerbaijan is majority Shi’ite Muslim and a former Soviet Republic, but it is controlled by a Jewish billionaire class which is backed by Turkey, Israel and even Al Qaeda.

Armenia on the other hand is an ancient Christian civilization.. Since the 1990s, Iran, despite being Shi’ite as well, has served as an aggressive defender of the Armenian people.

During the current conflict, the Iranians have been less gung-ho out of fear that the United States and Israel could use its massive Azeri population — 25% of the country — to cause chaos and civil strife while they are still recovering from sanctions.

Iran and Russia still ultimately side with the Armenians and are supplying them weapons. But both countries are eager to avoid a war in the area and are currently trying to broker a diplomatic arrangement with both sides. So far, these truces have failed.

Jewish Support For Murdering Christians

The Azeri military’s war crimes against Armenian Christians have not attracted much in the way of bad publicity in the English-speaking world, likely due to the country’s close ties to international Jewry.

Last week, Azerbaijan deliberately bombed the centuries old Ghazanchetsots Cathedral. When Russian journalists arrived to report on the damage, the Azeri military launched another barrage of shells, critically injuring one. Scores of civilians have also been targeted and killed on the Armenian side.

Turkey is singled out as being the primary regional instigator in this Caucus war, but Israel’s support for Azerbaijan is arguably more substantial. The state of Israel provides 60% of Azerbaijan’s weapons, and its high tech arms, such as IAI Harops (“suicide drones”), have given the Azeri military a unique strategic edge that the Armenians have no counter to.

International investigators have also uncovered evidence that the Azeri’s are using Israeli M095 DPICM cluster munitions — which are illegal under international law — to kill and maim non-combatants.

An Israeli court recently struck down a lawsuit supported by the country’s small Armenian community, complaining that weapons manufactured in Israel were implicated in crimes against humanity. Lawyers provided evidence showing that Israel was secretly airlifting weapons to Azerbaijan just days before the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict erupted, a shocking revelation left out of most Western reporting on the subject. The Zionist regime has vowed to continue selling billions of dollars in arms to the Azerbaijan government.

How To Lobby America

The Trump administration has shown more interest in supporting Azerbaijan than any government before it, largely as a passive act of harassment against Iran. So far, \$100 million dollars in aid have been dispatched to the country, but Washington has not been deeply involved in the current unfolding conflict.

The Azeri government’s lobbying tactic in the run up to this war has been to directly curry favor with American Jewry. In March, it became the first Muslim country to give a speech at AIPAC.

Last July, Armenians in Los Angeles protesting against Azerbaijan’s aggression were selectively charged with “hate crimes.” Hate crimes charges in America are generally reserved for politically disfavored ethnic groups who clash with favored ones.

Last week, Azeri ambassador Elin Suleymanov met with the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) in an attempt to get Washington to increase support for his country’s war effort.

Armenians, whose population massively outnumbers Azeris in the United States and is relatively wealthy, have attempted instead formally petitioned members of Congress to condemn Azerbaijan and Turkey.

They have, on the surface, found success. Multiple high profile congressmen have made statements verbally opposing Azeri and Turkish aggression. A letter addressed to Mike Pompeo calling for the US to end aid to Azerbaijan was sent, but no actually policies or bills have been put forward.

The Azeri Jew-focused gambit has objectively been far more effective. The Muslim majority state’s agenda is uncritically promoted in conservative media and the American public is kept ignorant of its barbaric behavior.

Attempts to get the European Union and the US to sanction Turkey over its bellicose behaviors through Azerbaijan and beyond have amounted to nothing but talk.

While Azerbaijan’s actions are being condemned by much of the world and only a handful of whimsical countries are overtly supporting their adventure (Pakistan, Israel, Turkey, Ukraine), their deep ties to world Jewry ensures that they will not stop until Iran, Russia and China massively increase pressure on them to do so.

  4. Just like they did in 1915 … JEWS are behind killing the FIRST CHRISTians. NOT in english
    The Young Turk movement, AKA Committee of Union and Progress, arose out of the Rothschilds’ oil interests in the Black Sea area of the Ottoman Empire in the late 1800s. ‘Creating stability’ in an incendiary realm was necessary for the Rothschilds’ new oil enterprise Baku Oil. The instability of the Armenian Christians’ financial and intellectual prominence in the area was not “good for business.”
    Thus hand-picked Jews of Salonika, (Jews made up the majority of the city’s population), and foreign agitators such as the Russian Zionist, Vladimir Jabotinksy, the editor of The Young Turk newspaper, were just what the Rothschilds needed for ridding the source of that instability, the Armenian Christians.
    Now, the Zionist Young Turks who sought for the break up of the Ottoman Empire in order to obtain Palestine–and the House of Rothschild, who needed a Jewish-controlled Turkey and hegemony over the entire Middle East, could work together. This meant funding for the Jewish Young Turks and revolutionary subversives for the Rothschilds.
    1680: Sabbatai Zvi, a Turkish Jew, proclaims himself to be the Jewish Messiah in Salonica. After amassing a following of thousands of Jews – he led them on a Zionist exodus to Palestine. On the way he decided to become a Muslim. Many of his followers saw this as God’s plan and also became Muslims.

    Concerning the Jews:

    Concerning the Armenians:
    “The Near East’s genetic landscape appears to have been continuously changing since the Bronze Age. There is a sub-Saharan African gene flow around 850 years ago in Syrians, Palestinians, and Jordanians consistent with previous reports of recent gene flow from Africans to Levantine populations after the Arab expansions. There is also an East Asian ancestry in Turks from admixture occurring around 800 years ago coinciding with the arrival of the Seljuk Turks to Anatolia from their homelands near the Aral sea. The introduction of these populations doesn’t seem to have affected Armenians significantly. Around 500 years ago, a genetic structure within the population appears to have developed, which coincides with a period when the Armenian people were divided between the Ottoman Empire and the successive Iranian empires.”

  14. Although with many Armenian friends since childhood, I must call a spade a spade on this conflict. The NK region was about 50/50 Armenian/Azeri when the USSR broke down and Azerbaijan became independent.

    At least what I read at the time of the NK war in the 90’s, was that the Armenians (and not the Azeris) went on a violent ethnic cleansing rampage in western Azerbaijan that either killed or expelled their long time neighbors and friends who were Azeri. The Armenian military very effectively smashed any Azeri govt resistance and conquered even more territory than NK. The number of massacred and killed is said to be in the hundreds of thousands.

    So what to expect today. Nobody likes to be ethnically cleansed. Because the Armenians profess Christianity does not given them any special privilege in the eyes of Azeris or the rest of the world. Internationally law and human rights conventions should apply to all sides equally.

    Regrettably, the Armenians and Azeris got along well before this Euro style etho -nationalistic war for land took hold of Armenians and now is taking hold of a vengeful Azeribjan. Russia at the time of the 1st NK war had their reason for supporting Armenia. That was to teach Azerbaijan a lesson and rein them in for immediately jumping in the Western Camp, especially the big oil camp.

    The only solution now is to end this needless bloodshed and find a solution where both groups can get back to living together with full rights for each side, in whatever national flag is over NK. Any other solution is nonsensical as the Caucuses are a highly mixed ethnic and religious region. Otherwise, a solution based on territorial concessions by both sides would need to be worked out by the major (behind the scenes) power brokers of the region, which is basically Russia, Israel, Turkey and Iran in this case.

    I am afraid though that such a peaceful resolution is a long way off.

It’s so powerful and malign that it is important to be able to talk about it in shorthand, without pussyfooting around.

  19. The Zionists always oppose Christianity because it deifies God rather than the State. Zionists wether Jew or Gentile are followers of the philosopher George Hegel who believed that “the state was God walking among us.” There is no limit to state power and no moral guidelines other than whatever is good for the government elite. Christianity teaches individual responsibility and that we all will be held accountable. Good example of the Zionist actions is Iraq. Christians were protected when Saddam ran the Country. The same thing with Gaddafi. Jewmerica always installs and supports totalitarian anti Christian regimes. This includes radicalizing the Muslims against Christians.

    One of the tenets of the Fabian socialists in the late 1800’s was the destruction of all religion, especially Christianity. One of their founders, the fiction writer and friend of the Royal Family, H.G. Wells wrote a book calling for this. He was romantically connected to the founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger. Expert of the world Bill Gates father was also head of this organization that murders close to a million children per year, mostly with taxpayer money.

    The mandatory teaching of Darwins evolutionary theory in the public schools is another example of the War against God and for the state. This is done despite what has been learned about the requirement for the coding of information in all living organisms that could only be done by intelligence, not random chance.

    The State of Israel is the bridgehead for the Zionists in this most strategic area. Turkey works to overthrow Syria as it is in the Zionist camp. During WW1 the Crypto Jews in Turkey murdered ap. a million Armenians who might have interfered with the Rothschilds power play for oil by the Bolsheviks (Jews) in the Caucasus.

    And of course in present day Indonesia crypto Jews have murdered over half a million Christians in occupied Papua and burn churches daily and engage in gang rapes , by using the age old Jewish trick of posing as Indonesian Muslims to give Islam a bad name. History repeats itself.

    “Jews Are Enabling Genocide Against Armenian Christians In Nagorno-Karabakh”

    Thank you striker. You things just cant help yourselves, can you. I had been wondering who started this new zionazi provocation and you, with your chutzpah, have now made it clear who initiated it.

    For those that don’t know, the zionazis initiated a color revolution in Armenia, installing the anti-Russian israeli quisling pashinyan. The usual zionazi-gay govno. Now all of a sudden there is conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan and zionazia is promoting their usual Christian vs Muslim psywar. Gee, what a shocking surprise.

    This conflict only benefits israeloamerican oligarch interests. The zionazis and their cowed nazi/fascist me too’rs. See:

    Azerbaijan has recently been doing a “turkey” and showing some independence. Meanwhile Armenia, with it’s israeli color rev. is working on becoming a zionazi dependent, like georgia, poland and the ukraine.

    My suspicion that israel, through their pashinyan boi toy, initiated this new conflict to cause chaos along Russia’s southern border, and at the same time sow discord between Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan and turkey and disrupt China’s work to connect the nations of this region in a new, and inclusive economic alliance, is now essentially been confirmed by striker. When israeli assets, especially the likudite sort try to play off their Christian vs Muslim divisive psywar, one can be certain they are defending an israeloamerican war criminal geostrategy.

  23. I know Striker and his commenters are not the most historically aware, so I will spell it out simply. In 1908, the Young Turks movement seized power in the Ottoman Empire. They were heavily funded by Turkish Jews. Men like Emmanuel Carasso.

    Early on, they wanted to remove Greeks and Armenians from Anatolia. This was enthusiastically supported by Turkish Jews, who regarded Armenians and Greeks as commercial rivals to be eliminated. In 1914, Greeks and Armenians formed 25% 0f the population of Anatolia. In 1923, they formed less than 2%, The Turks had ethnically cleansed them with great loss of life. Up to 2 million Armenians and Greeks died or were killed.

    Fast forward to 2020. Israel is one of Azerbaijan’s main arms suppliers. Plus ca change

    All part of the Zionist Jews plan as taught by the Frankfurt School in order to demoralize and destabilize the white western nations. It’s much easier to take over a country if you first change the culture of the people. Most people are so superficial in their thinking, not bothering to examine anything but just believe whatever the Zionist gov and the Jew controlled media tell them even though everything the gov. says is a lie and everything they do is a fraud. From the moonwalks to the truth about 911. From WMD’s, the Los Vegas shooting to Fake Floyd and the staged riots. From global warming to the fake virus.

    We have all seen documentaries about primitive people in Borneo or wherever who believe in evil spirits and witch doctors. I don’t see much difference in the cucks going around with the face diapers thinking a virus is going to drop out of the sky and get them when the criminals at the CDC have had to admit Covid 19 has not been isolated nor identified. People that stupid need to be living in the austerity of the high tech feudalism Agenda 2030-21.

    As far as slavery goes the negroes should be grateful for it and that their own people sold their ancestors into a system that allows their descendants to be in America and out of Africa today. As you state at the height of Amer. slavery perhaps 5-or 6 % of whites owned slaves. Many area such as New Orleans had more free negroes than slaves and the one who were slaves were in many cases just so in a nominal sense. All the way back to Washington with his vast estates in which he was gone for a period of 7 years except for very infrequent 3 day visits this whole enterprise was run by a slave husband and wife. His name also being George, Called King George. This is the way many plantations were organized and at one time the biggest slave owner in Charleston was a Black man and former slave. 14,000 blacks had slaves themselves putting the per cent-age at about 28%. The number 1 objective for the plantation owner was usually to keep everyone happy. In many cases as in Washington’s, many if not most of then slaves were either too young or too old to do much effective work. However everyone was taken care of unlike in the Northern factories if you were sick or mashed your finger and couldn’t work, too bad. The Atlantic slave trade was almost exclusively run by the Jews and moved slaves not to America but to the much more arduous sugar islands in the Caribbean.

    Practically everything on the Jew MSM and most of the alternative is Zionist propaganda. Just like the thousands of idealistic idiots who believed the MSM lies about the “workers paradise” in the Jew run Soviet Union and went overthere only to be rounded up and shot or thrown in a Gulag of frozen hell, many here wil believe the Zionist lies until that U.N. boot is kicking them in their ass.

    Turkish Jews bankrolled The Young Turks, who executed the Armenian Genocide of 1915 and later. This led to the expulsion of nearly all Armenian and Greeks from Anatolia ( there are a few thousand left ). The Jews were pleased at what they saw as the elimination of their business rivals.
    In 2020, Israel is one of the main arms suppliers to Azerbaijan.
    Jewish policy is bad for Armenians and Greeks and always has been. It goes back long before the Young Turks. Despicable as its actions are, Israel is acting as Jews have always done. No change there.

    The number killed was predominantly on the Azeri side and it was the Armenian community that wanted out of what was then a region within Azerbaijan SSR, or whatever it was called in the early 90’s.

    Putting aside on who dunnit and to whom?

    What is your solution?? More war and killing?? Obviously the Azeri’s will not just go away. The Armenians are outnumbered and outgunned and international law is more on the side of Azerbaijan.

    Armenians keep deluding themselves that that there exists a Christian West that will support them and ride in like the Crusaders and finish off the Azeris because they are nominal Muslims. That is non-sensical and delusionary, add to the matter that Israel and Turkey have the back of Azerbaijan in this conflict.

    A sane Armenian leadership would seek a diplomatic solution now, while the cards are still in their favor rather than later when things may tip disfavorably against them. However, myopic supra-nationalism always has blinders on. The last thing the region needs is a big victory that Erdogan the Neo-Sultanate impostor will claim as his.

    Sanity would demand that the Armenian leadersip stop listening to their nationalist hotheads and seek a solution that either allows the expelled Azeris to be invited back to NK region under some multi-national structure or the region should be amicably re-partitioned between the two sides. It is hard to see any other outcome that would resolve this matter and end this wasteful and bloody war that in the end has no real winners.

    “Some of you have spent hundreds of hours “researching” the Holocaust, looking for inconsistencies. Try doing the same with the so-called armenian genocide.”

    The reason that there is such a disproportionate attention given to the so called Jewish “Holocaust” visa a vis the so called Armenian genocide is because the history, culture, news, movies, political speeches, economics, laws, museums, school curriculums, etc., etc, etc. (I could go on but you get my drift) of Christian Western Civilization is consistently, incessantly on a 24/7 daily basis inundated with “THE HOLOCAUST”, and the Armenian genocide is literally non-existent.

    Accordingly, given the relentless extent that so-called Holocaust has on the daily life (legal rights, education, careers, etc.,etc., etc. ) of Western Christians, it is understandable; indeed totally rational that:

    “Some of [them] have spent hundreds of hours “researching” the Holocaust, looking for inconsistencies. ”

    Indeed, it is wonder that not more of them spend more time researching the so called Holocaust.

    But then again in Europe you go to jail for such research and in America you are rendered ‘persona non grata’.

    The so called Holocaust is a yoke that the Jewish people have brilliantly succeeded in placing on the neck of the Christian Western Civilization, for the political and economic self interest of the Jewish Nation. While I rile against that pain of that yoke, I stand in utter awe and profound respect for the magnitude of the Jewish accomplisment.

    Indeed. I would go so far as to say, I and my brethren suffer from “Stockholm Syndrome” (i.e bonding with ones captors).

    The pathetic few who muster the courage, intellectual integrity and love of Western Christian heritage to “spend hundreds of hours researching the Holocaust” are a gnat on the back of an elephant.

There’s not even a million of them and they have their own organized crime syndicates that have merited large scale, federal responses to their criminality. Their celebrities are cancerous. The Kardashians have caused immeasurable damage to young white girls who need better role models than tanned whores.

    What kind of simplistic, child-like mind do you have to just assume that because Jews and Muslims sit on one side and Christians sit on the other, that automatically makes the Christians good? It’s pitifully obvious to anyone with any statistical acumen that Armenians have been a detriment to the United States and white America. They’ve not proven to be good Americans who want to integrate. They hold onto their middle-eastern identity like a security blanket and won’t shut the fuck up about their genocide. Gee, sounds a lot like some long noses who profiteer off their “genocide,” don’t it?

    I sincerely hope you’re a Gen X past his prime. God help us all if you’re the future of white people. We’re all doomed if that’s the case.

    How about taking a time and look at the date and location when and where this war
    broke out (“September 27, 2020, Sunday, Azerbaijan, Nagorno-Karabakh”) and
    see if there’s something special about this combo (with or without comparison to
    what started on 4.24.1915) ? And there’s another, even more “surprising” set of

    There’s more to this than just who is entitled to NK post USSR. This is a continuation of the Turkish drive against Christian Armenians that has been going on for more than a century, genociding them, massacring them, expelling them from their lands and seizing their properties, and since the break up of the Soviet Union acting through their proxy little Turk Azeris.

    With the conflict frozen, Russia sold arms to both parties to even things out and maintain good relations with both. Russia was aware that the Azeris could easily switch suppliers to the Americans and Turks. By being the Azeris’ main suppliers, they hoped to keep the Americans and Turks out. Obviously, this policy has failed and the Russians need to think again.
    The Israelis’ policy aims are threefold.
    ( 1) Jews have nearly always been hostile to Armenians in the Near East. They regarded them as trade rivals and were pleased at their expulsion from Anatolia a century ago. If Armenia as a state ceased to exist, they wouldn’t give a sh*t.
    ( 2) Armenia has warm relations with Israel’s Enemy No 1, Iran. To Israel, this is bad in itself. Undermining or completely defeating a country like that is an end in itself for Israel. Even better when that country has a land border with Iran. Any defeat might result in closure of said border and put more pressure on Iran.
    ( 3) Most Azeris do not live in Azerbaijan. They live in IRAN. If Armenia were completely defeated , then phase II would be the campaign for the union of Azeri lands in Iran with Azerbaijan.
    This would obviously mean partition of Iran and the downfall of the Islamic Republic. Oy Vey !

    PS I know that states sell arms to others unless it’s totally against their interests. Hence Austria, Belarus, Uncle Tom Cobbly and all. But Switzerland ? Wouldn’t that be against Swiss neutrality.

    None of your anecdotal musings about Jews and their supposed attitudes toward Armenians changes the fact that the supposed allies of Armenia , Russia and Iran who both share a border with Armenia are sitting on the sidelines and watching Armenia get steamrolled.

    In the case of Russia they are also the largest arms supplier to Azerbaijan. So they are actively participating in the genocide against Armenians.

    In the case of Iran they were willing to intervene hundreds of miles away militarily in Syria , Yemen and Lebanon losing thousands of soldiers and several generals in the process. But not a single drop of blood was spilled to help their Christian neighbors and supposed allies right on their border.

    Thanks for your information about Swiss Arms exports,of which, I admit, I was unaware. Now I know Victorinox make armoured vehicles as well.

    Armenia is a member of the military alliance CSTO along with Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russia and others. The members are pledged to defend one another’s internationally agreed borders.
    This means that Russia has agreed to defend the borders of the Republic of Armenia.

    However, the recent fighting has been in Artsakh and the the corridor of Azerbaijan between Armenia and Artsakh, occupied by Armenians. No state recognises Artsakh, not even Armenia !

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is based in Stepanakert. Since no UN member or observer currently recognizes Artsakh, none of its foreign relations are of an official diplomatic nature.

    And of course, no nation recognises the Armenian seizure of the corridor between Artsakh and Armenia.
    So Russia has no obligation to get involved, as the Republic of Armenia has not been attacked. The fighting has been fierce, but no one would claim that Armenia is being steamrollered. Nobody has mentioned genocide, apart from some extreme Armenian nationalists.


    You could claim that some missile attacks have occurred on Armenia proper, though this is disputed.
    Certainly, the Armenians have attacked areas outside Artsakh and the occupied corridor.

    Short of an Azeri military incursion into the Republic of Armenia, there will be no direct Russian military intervention. The Azeris know this, which is why the fighting is in the 2 areas described, not in the Republic of Armenia.
    Losses on both sides have been high with little territorial change. Attrition is starting to kick in. So a ceasefire is going to happen sooner rather than later. Thereafter, the chances of a negotiated settlement will increase. A negotiated settlement is in the interests of Russia as well both parties.

    Iran has good relations with Armenia. It is not an ally. I did not say that. This has to be balanced against the existence of a large Azeri population in Iran.

    Azeris comprise the largest minority ethnic group in Iran. Apart from Iranian Azerbaijan (provinces of West Azerbaijan, East Azerbaijan, Ardabil and Zanjan), Azeri populations are found in large numbers in four other provinces

    So the Iranian Government must deal with this in a manner that does not inflame Azeri nationalism and pan-Turkism. It is remarkable that it is able to maintain diplomatic relations with Armenia at all. Obviously, they consider it of considerable benefit for them to do so.
    Obviously, a negotiated settlement is in the Iranian’s interests as well.
    I hope I wasn’t too anecdotal for you !

  49. @Tommy Thompson

    My solution is temporary: that the fighting should cease, the conflict to freeze again until the geopolitical situation changes in the future to possibly favour Armenia. But any which way you look at it there will be more war and killing in the Caucuses given how things have complicated themselves. Turkey is being aggressive all over the place, Christian Georgia is allowing Turks to use its airspace, and possibly land territory, to supply Azeris, although if Armenia falls, they will be next in line simply because they’re Christian, and Turks and Jews will not allow them to live in peace, but keep stirring up trouble there too once they don’t need them as a bridge to Azerbaijan. And I think the way Russia is playing the balance of power games in the region, it will go back to being a frozen conflict for some more time after this bout of fighting, without Azerbaijan achieving its aim to take NK.

    You obviously do not know much ( anything at all? ) about the situation(s) in the Caucasus. Your insistence on making this about religion shows your ignorance. No-one but the armenians ( and some western christians ) keep trying to make this about religion.
    Georgia has an exellent relationship with Azerbaijan. Not just between the states, but also the peoples.
    Georgia ( despite being christian ) has a much more strained relationship with Armenia.
    These small things ( and Iran`s good relations with Armenia ) should tell you quite clearly that other factors than religion are at play here.
    Unfortunately you religious fools would want nothing less than a so-called clash of civilisations. A war between christianity and islam. You put yourself comfortably in the same camp as ISIS, Al-Qaida etc. with your dream of religious war.
    There is no excuse for your dangerous, ignorant and idiotic statements.

    I am aware of what you say and I don’t think my comment gave the impression that relations between states there weren’t complicated. And the Turks including the little Turk Azeris, as far as Armenians or anyone else is concerned, cannot be trusted whether religious or secular. Secular Turks were genociding Armenians no less than the Islamic Ottomans before Ataturk took power. And look at the situation of the Kurds now after having helped the Turks commit genocide of the Armenians. So anybody helping the Turks today can rest assured that they’ll turn on them tomorrow. Yes at present ethnicity trumps religion in the conflicts in that region but that may not hold, especially when Islamist terrorists are being funneled into the conflict by Turkey.

    I highly doubt you had any Armenian friends, given your clear anti-Armenian bias, as exhibited in your post. And, you have no clue about Artsakh/NK or the history of the region, or of the war, etc., etc.

    1. {The NK region was about 50/50 Armenian/Azeri when the USSR broke down and Azerbaijan became independent.}

    In 1923 when Bolshevik Stalin “gave” Nagorno Karabagh to Azerbaijan SSR, Armenians constituted 95% of its population. Not a surprise, since Artsakh has been historic Armenian heartland for 1,000s of years (5,000+). When war broke out in the Fall of 1991, Turkbaijan ethnic cleansing and a policy of forcing Armenians out had reduced the percentage to 75% Armenian.

    2. {At least what I read at the time of the NK war in the 90’s, was that the Armenians (and not the Azeris) went on a violent ethnic cleansing rampage in western Azerbaijan that either killed or expelled their long time neighbors and friends who were Azeri.}

    Armenians living in Azerbaijan SSR were subjected to 3 pogroms/massacres: 1988 Sumgait; hundreds of (Soviet) Armenians massacred by Turkbaijani Musavat party Fascist mobs. . 1988 Kirovabad; hundreds of (Soviet) Armenians massacred. 1990 Baku: hundreds of (Soviet) Armenians massacred. (Note: World chess champion Gary Kasparov (Armenian) who was living in Baku at the time, chartered a plane and got himself and his family out before the murderers could get them: look it up)

    The massacres took place while USSR was still intact.
    Azerbaijan invaded Nagorno-Karabagh after USSR broke up, and both Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabagh declared Independence.

    3. {The Armenian military very effectively smashed any Azeri govt resistance and conquered even more territory than NK. The number of massacred and killed is said to be in the hundreds of thousands.}

    There were no, quote, ‘hundreds of thousands’ killed or massacred. Azerbaijani invaders and their Islamist mercenaries lost about 35,000 KIA (fighters). Armenians lost about 6,000 KIA. Turks were planning another Genocide of Armenians in 1991-1994, and they failed. Armenian fighters liberated more historic Armenian lands outside NK and forced the foreign squatters to leave. About 400,000 (Soviet) Armenians fled Azerbaijan after the massacres
    A population exchange. Done deal.

    There are too many statements in your post that show you have no clue. Turks are trying to exterminate the last remaining Armenians from their historic homelands, after committing a Genocide in 1915-1923, and taking about 90% of historic Armenian lands. The so-called “Azeris” are Turks who invaded Caucasus centuries ago from East and Central Asia. The fake country of Azerbaijan did not even exist before around 1920s.

    Here: read how the nomad savages destroyed 1,000s Armenian cross-stones in ancient Armenian Nakhichevan, after completely ethnically cleansing the indigenous Armenians from there.

    {Nagorno-Karabakh is under armenian occupation, not the other way around. The 7 azerbaijani districts/regions surrounding Nagorno Karabakh are also under armenian occupation. All of these areas have been etnically cleansed of azeris. Those that would not up and leave their homes were massacred. By your beloved ancient christian armenians.}

    Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabagh was under Turkbaijani occupation and was liberated when Turkbaijani savages attempted another Genocide of indigenous Armenians and failed. The foreign squatters of historic Armenian lands were forced to leave. About 400,000 (Soviet) Armenians living in Azerbaijan SSR fled for their lives after the massacres in Sumgait (1988), Kirovabad (1988), Baku (1990). A population exchange.

    And no Turkbaijani civilians were massacred. Armenian fighters always left an open corridor and allowed the people to leave, which they did. That’s why Azerbaijan can claim some mythical 800,000 Internally Displaced Persons: because no civilians were deliberately killed by Armenian fighters.

    {How about taking a time out and actually try to inform yourself…}

    Why don’t you.

    {Try doing the same with the so-called armenian genocide. }

    Someone writing ‘so-called’ in reference to the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923, when anywhere from 1.5-2 million Christian Armenians were exterminated by Muslim nomad Turk invaders of Asia Minor, is clearly delusional. Turks (and their Kurd helpers) also exterminated about 1-1.5 million Christian Assyrians and Christian Pontic Greeks.

    “The Ottoman failure to effectively oppose the rebels is indeed hard to understand. Imagine a country in which a number of radical revolutionaries, most of them from a foreign country, organize a rebellion. They infiltrate fighters and guns from this foreign country to lead their attack on the government and the people. The radicals openly state they wish to create a state in which the majority of the population will be excluded from rule. They murder and terrorize their own people to force them to join their cause. They murder government officials. They deliberately murder members of the majority in the hope that reprisals will lead other nations to invade. They store thousands of weapons in preparation for revolt. They revolt, are defeated, then revolt again and again. The country that gains most from the rebels’ actions is the country they come from-the country in which they organize, the country in which they have their home base.

    What government would tolerate this? Has there ever been a country that would not jail, and probably hang such rebels? Has there ever been a country that would allow them to continue to operate openly? Yes. That country was the Ottoman Empire. In the Ottoman Empire the Armenian rebels operated openly, stored thousands of weapons, murdered Muslims and Armenians, killed governors and other officials, and rebelled again and again. The only one to truly benefit from their actions was Russia-the country in which they organized, the country their leaders came from.”

    British consul Seele reported:
    “An agent [ Armenian terrorist supported by Russia and Central Europe ] arrived in a certain village and informed a villager that he must buy a Mauser pistol. The villager replied that he had no money, whereupon the agent retorted, “You must sell your oxen.” The wretched villager then proceeded to explain that the sowing season would soon arrive and asked how a Mauser pistol would enable him to plough his fields. For reply the agent proceeded to destroy the poor man’s oxen with his pistol and then departed.”

    “From what I have seen in the parts of the country I have visited I have become more convinced than ever of the baneful influence of the Taschnak Committee on the welfare of the Armenians and generally of this part of Turkey. It is impossible to overlook the fact in that in all places where there are no Armenian political organisations or where such organisations are imperfectly developed, the Armenians live in comparative harmony with the Turks and Kurds.”–Consul Seele wrote in 1911:

    Armenian terrorist killed clergymen, desecrated the Armenian churches for rebel’s cause, extorted money and killed Armenian merchants ,police officers, army general and Armenian advisors to Ottoman government . Swiss origin Armenian Hunchakian Revolutionary Party and Russian origin
    Dashnaks, both formed before 1900 targeted Ottoman for destruction and for carving out an Armenian state .Beginning in earnest in the 1890s, the Russian Armenian revolutionaries began to infiltrate the Ottoman Empire. They smuggled rifles, cartridges, dynamite, and fighters across ill-defended borders into Van, Erzurum, and Bitlis provinces

    The Europeans had almost divided the Empire in 1878 and had planned to do so in the 1890s. Only fear that Russia would become too powerful had stopped them. Public opinion in Britain and France could easily change that. Indeed, that was exactly what the Armenian revolutionaries wanted. They wanted the Ottomans to jail and execute Armenian rebels. European newspapers would report that as government persecution of innocent Armenians. They wanted the government to prosecute Armenian revolutionary parties. The European newspapers would report that as denying political freedom to the Armenians. They wanted Muslims to react to Armenian provocations and attacks by killing Armenians. The European newspapers would report only the dead Armenians, not the dead Muslims. Public opinion would force the British and French to cooperate with the Russians and dismember the Empire.

    When the Dashnaks occupied the Ottoman Bank, Europeans arranged their release. European ambassadors forced the Ottomans to grant amnesty to rebels in Zeytun. They arranged pardons for those who attempted to kill sultan Abdülhamid II. The Russian consuls would not let Ottoman courts try Dashnak rebels, because they were Russian subjects. Many rebels who were successfully tried and convicted were released, because the Europeans demanded and received pardons for them, in essence threatening the sultan if he did not release rebels and murderers. One Russian consul in Van even publicly trained Armenian rebels, acting personally as their weapons instructor.

    Sorry but I stand by argument for peace and reconciliation between the two sides. The Armenians are best to come off their supra-nationalist high horse and always playing the perpetual victimhood card and get realistic. They have only engendered real hatred and animosity from the Azeris, when there was little before the NK war. The Armenians were a major part of Azeribjan and understood that they got along well especially in Baku.

    The Azeris have a lot of evidence of some pretty gruesome and bloody episodes that the Armenians of NK did to their long time Azeri neighbors whether new comers or not to the region, that is besides the point. Armenians like to play the Christian card, well play it then like Jesus would have , both tactically and strategically in how to handle this very dangerous situation.

    As a true friend of Armenians I would counsel them away from betting on a suicidal war as their route to salvation. Rather to open their minds and hearts for a diplomatic and peaceful resolution. I just dont see how in the long run they can come out on top in such long drawn out war in that region. Get real first of all so their may be peace and good will to all sides and peoples.
