  1. I am glad — but let’s realize that the main reason the US, Nato, and EU want to help Armenia is that they want the borders to be open in order to better allow Western countries and Turkey to penetrate the Caucasus, Caspian, and Central Asia.

    That is what is behind the West’s friendliness.

    It’s NOT about democracy or human rights.

    We know this because the US supports undemocratic and terrorist Turkey and Azerbaijan.

    For some strange reason there are still some Armenians who do not understand this.

    Please, wake up.
