Will they have success? Considering they've had their man in Armenia for two years now? Success may be theirs to have.
I've been reading through lots of material on the Nagarno Kharabahk situation. There is tons of disinfo. Lots of unsubstantiated claims. That's to be expected. What's very interesting and unexpected is the 5 eyes based "news" outlets spinning against Azerbaijan and Turkey, while propping up all manner of Armenian claims. American and UK sources are very pro Armenian despite the fact Armenia is supposed to be a staunch ally of Russia? A protectorate of Russia? Under the influence and sway of Russia? Though that isn't really the case and all. And Nagarno Kharabahk isn't part of Russia's reduced influence in Armenia.
Pashinyan would know very well how to work/manipulate a compliant media. Being a "media" man supported by by western NGO's. That's been covered here previously, check the 2018 reports:
Pashinian, who for years run Armenia’s best-selling daily, “Haykakan Zhamanak,”
In 2013 -Pashinian also stated that his movement could advocate a “velvet revolution” in Armenia if serious fraud precludes regime change through elections.
Of course, Pashiny(i)an did take power:
The more we believe things change, the more we fail to realize they are exactly the same.
Let's step back even further to a report, published by yours truly April / 2016:
It's definitely not a localized conflict. No sireee....
It does not take a leap from reality to see how this conflict could spill over into a bigger war in the South Caucasus.Far from being just a localised conflict watched by many with curiosity on our television screens, the war in Nagorno-Karabakh is actually a tangled web of competing geopolitical interests from across the region.
The risk of the war spilling over is real.This is not about Russia poking Turkey in the eye! The US talking head is spinning that nonsense and it's just that nonsense- Russia has no interest in fomenting war with Turkey-
Russia has sold a whole pile of arms to Azerbaijan, so the US presented simplistic narrative doesn't fit.The South Caucasus is a tinderbox almost perpetually on the brink of igniting. Often it is Russia's hand that is shaping and influencing events in the South Caucasus.But Russia isn't the only player as the very biased writer finally acknowledges
For the US, events in the South Caucasus can affect regional security, and by extension, the US and Europe's security.For Europe, stability and security in the South Caucasus matters for energy reasons and for the bigger dream of creating a continent that is whole, free and at peace.
That's NATO talk for a Europe under the thumb of NATO. We've talked this
topic previously readers. And oddly Hillary Clinton mentioned that at
the time of the Brussels bombing- It's a plan.
Despite its physical distance from the United States, events in the South Caucasus can affect regional security and, by extension, transatlantic security.
Energy reasons and dominating Europe- Oops, I mean making Europe whole and free ;)
Goodness gracious, why that was mentioned just the other day!
The dangerous actions of Armenia risks to further destabilize the region,
which has a strategic importance for Azerbaijan and Europe, as it provides energy and transport links to Georgia, Turkey and Europe for the Azerbaijani oil and gas as well as other export commodities. By jeopardizing major infrastructure projects, such as the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, Armenia could put European energy and transport security at huge risk."
"Ankara’s declaration (declarations are meaningless without action) especially creates the danger of a showdown between
Turkey and Russia, since Moscow regards Armenia as a client, if not an
outright protectorate. ( I don't buy that idea- that's a very NATO idea) The mere possibility of an armed
confrontation between a NATO member and Russia is cause for alarm, since
Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty considers an attack on any
alliance member as an attack on all. A military incident
between Turkey and Russia would require the United States to sort‐out
which party was guilty of aggression, and if it appeared that Moscow had
initiated the clash, Washington would have an obligation to come to
Wow! Let's talk about what is being stated by CATO- The mere possibility of a confrontation, not an actual confrontation, just a maybe would require the rest of NATO to step up and defend Turkey. This is pretext. Considering everything that has taken place in Syria? With the US aiming for Turkey right there alongside their PKK pals? The Mediterranean conflict which sees the US opposed to Turkey's attempts to exercise it's own right to trade and protecting it's commercial interests. Come on! The US is looking to expand NATO into Armenia in a very big way and Armenia is doing all it can to help with attain this goal!
Spin from "Radio Free Europe" Turkish-Russian Rivalry Influences Azerbaijan-Armenia Fighting
I'm stating, because it's clear to me, NK has flared up at this time because the US is looking for an excuse to enter/occupy Armenia. They got their man in power. And that man, Pashinian is making all manner of unsubstantiated claims of Turkish involvement. This will give the US exactly what they want. With a side benefit of causing conflict between Turkey and Russia. There is no way Turkey wants more US troops stationed at it's border alongside their PKK proxy army. In a replay of the same situation we see in Syria. The presence of the PKK was reported, here, a couple of days ago
"The alarming reports that Armenia has been relocating Kurdistan Working Party (PKK) terrorists from Syria and Iraq to the occupied territories of Nagorno-Karabakh to prepare for future hostilities and train Armenian militias is news of the sort that should keep you awake at night, not only in Azerbaijan but also in Europe, writes James Wilson.
Arevordi @ Heralding the Rise of Russia has long written about US influence in Armenia- Wonder what he's thinking right about now?
