Armenia Azerbaijan Conflict


Recommended Posts

Things have been heating up Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh over past weeks. Today large escalation have been reported with both sides blaming the other side. Tanks, aircraft and artillery has apparently been used. Armenia claims that the conflict has erupted over the whole length of border in Karabakh.


Armenia has claimed to have shot down Mi-24, which Azerbaijan denies.

As a background Armenia is backed by Russia and Azerbaijan is ethnically Turkic this has potential to escalate to a proxy war.

Both Armenia and Azerbaijan reporting clashes along all front line in Karabakh tonight - according to Arm side, it was Azeri army attempt to break through supported by Grad strikes and aviation (other side report opposite). Armenians claim enemy Hind down, lots of civilian casualties.

It may be Baku leadership attempt to start "small victorious war" as oil prices drop turned Azerbaijan economic miracle into ruins (Aliev is currently in US AFAIK), or their main ally (Turkey) reminding Russia that if Turkey "relation normalization proposals" not taken, they may cause more problems to Russia away from Syria.

"This time situation is much more complex – Azerbaijan would surely attack Armenia to use opportunity to return disputed territories wile Russia is busy, Iran would not be able to stay away, Russian forces will need land corridor to support Armenia - meaning Georgia will be gone too, with Russian forces forming new land front against Turkey like century ago. Ukraine would surely jump into with their hope to grab something while Russia is in another war -meaning Ukraine most likely will be gone too, and so on. It is local WW3, with high chances of growing into global and nuclear (after all İncirlik by some reports got nuclear storage)"

Or to those informed who throw out a lot of vague predictions, some of which hit the mark in future ;) I mean Kharabakh is a known hot spot, so prediction of "There will be a conflict" is rather sure hit :)

 

EDIT: In any case, guess the main thin gere is the Sultan trying to twist the Russian tail by proxy. Not sure if it is the proper sublime wisdom worthy of Sultan though ;)

It was pretty much a cold war. Frozen conflict. Whatever you wanted to call it. Now it flared up again. It Was inevitable that the balloon goes up again sooner or later.

 

 

A sensible solution would have been that the UN rolls in and untangles the knot by exchanging the populations of both state's enclaves in the respective other's and be done with it. Nakhchivan against Karabakh. <_<
