  1. A loyal ally (Armenia) speaks to a country (Russia) that betrayed it by not stopping the war before it began.

    If Russia could stop the war when it did, it could have stopped it much earlier.

    Now Russia is stuck with Turkey in the Caucasus and with a foothold on the Caspian.

  2. Isn’t it funny how the Armenians in Artsakh were able to hold their own against Azerbaijan until suddenly the foe’s artillery was able to pinpoint their artillery on Armenian hospitals and churches even though their artillery was shooting from the other side of the mountain? The answer is probably above us. So look up, way, way up! Thank you NATO.
