Armenia: Coup In The Works? Whose Coup? War Maker Biden. NED 404 & Cached Finds..

Pashinyan is in trouble. Clearly. And he has been since the settling of the Nagorno Karabakh fighting.  But, who are the players behind this trouble?

  • 1- The people? To some degree, yes.
  • 2- Russia? They've got their friendlies in place. But, I'm not convinced of their involvement  to overthrow- Why bother? Really?
  • 3- The US and friends? I'm certain that, yes, the US and their friends, particularly in the EU maybe pulling strings behind the scene.

Let's recall 3 recent reports:

Updated 4:18 pm EST:

First up : November 19/20  Turkey and Russia Transforming Relations? Biden's "ancien regime" Will Be A War Maker, Both Foreign and Domestic

  Biden will appease the self identified left and their idea of social justice by waging war on new people in new places, for all the “right” reasons...

All the memes that appeal to the ‘do righters’ who believe themselves to be bringers of global justice when all these goals serve only to advance the multinational corporate ability to extort massively from the people at enormous expense, on many levels, to humanity. 
Do righters = Social Justice warriors = "woke"

Secondly - January 19, 2021- The Future of Armenia: Three Options For More EU Meddling

As was stated then by yours truly..

The Future of Armenia- is not for Armenia to decide

Have no fear the EU is going to keep it’s foot in the door and continue to force Armenian’s to bend to the will of the globalist capitalist western 5 + 1 eyes agenda. Remember that France’s Macron simply  couldn’t keep his mouth shut as Russia negotiated a settlement in this locale.? France and the US were extremely displeased with the agreement made between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.   

No one could have thought the settlement, which had the support of Iran and Turkey as well was, going to be allowed to stand without being challenged?

Thirdly: November 29/20   France's Whining Over The Nagarno Karabakh Agreement (Russia, Armenia & Azerbaijan) Continues On. 

 Yah, France. The leadership of that nation has no desire for peace in NK.  None. Nadda, Zéro  Zéro . Still awaiting the answer to the question - Why has France been getting a free pass in the media, alt and msm, for it's heavy handed and obvious involvement in Nagarno Karabakh?

By the way, no one ever stepped forward to explain why it was France was getting a free pass. Alt media? Anti imperial media? Oh, the silence was deafening.

Onto the latest!

PanARMENIAN.Net - The General Staff of the Armenian Army issued a fresh statement on Thursday, Febriary 25, maintaining that their previous statement demanding Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's resignation was not pressured by any person or power.

The statement "is the clear conviction and position of the generals and officers, with a single goal of serving the salvation of the Homeland at this crucial moment. We confirm our position once again," the General Staff said.

The country is facing a serious political crisis after the top military brass demanded Pashinyan's resignation. The PM, however, claims he had already dismissed the chief of the Army General Staff. The parliamentary opposition has already weighed in on the matter, urging against bloodshed and calling for a peaceful transition of power.   
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 25, ARMENPRESS. The opposition Homeland Salvation Movement demanding the resignation of PM Nikol Pashinyan is rallying in the Freedom Square in downtown Yerevan.

The ARF member Gegham Manukyan, one of the coordinators of the movement, said they will not give in to provocations and urged law enforcement agencies to thwart any such attempts.

Manukyan said the law enforcement agencies ought to join the military’s calls for Pashinyan’s resignation.

The ARF member Artsvik Minasyan added that they support the Armenian military.

Meanwhile, PM Nikol Pashinyan has called on his supporters to rally in the Republic Square after the Armed Forces General Staff issued a statement calling for his resignation. Pashinyan said this statement amounts to an attempted coup.

Homeland Salvation Movement... Sounds like a pro west/ pro NATO party. If you think about it this is a party that represents more war. "Homeland Salvation" And war doesn't benefit the Armenian people.

Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu     

Turkey on Thursday “strongly condemned” what it described as an attempted coup in neighboring Armenia, where Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was facing calls by the military’s top brass to resign. 
“We strongly condemn the attempted coup in Armenia,” Turkish Foreign Minister
Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told a news conference in Budapest. “We are absolutely against coups and coup attempts anywhere in the world.

 General condemnation? Better to dance with the devil you know? Or a clue as to who is fomenting the coup. (The US/EU/Israel/PKK alliance) Turkey has everything to lose if the aforementioned alliance tosses Pashinyan. Pashinyan has been a tool and a fool, but, he's been subdued quite a bit. Weakened, one would easily say.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan signed a decree today to create a working group tasked with reforming the military and to deepen security ties with Russia.

“We intend to establish even closer cooperation with our number one security partner, Russia. We are confident that as a result of this process, this cooperation will become more effective in the fields of security, military and military-technical cooperation," Pashinyan said at today’s government cabinet session.

Is this move by Pashinyan yet another suggestion to us, a clue, of who is fomenting the coup?

 One final item of interest, if one visits the NED site- And checks Armenia in 2019- a 404 error message is returned. However.. If you get the cached page it’s a very different reality. A sampling below and yes there is more at the link

Will the coup succeed?


  1. Putin and Pashinyan discuss situation in Armenia
    Armenian leadership reached out to Russian leadership

    ussian President Vladimir Putin and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan held phone talks and discussed the situation in the republic, president's spokesperson Dmitry Peskov noted.

    The telephone conversation took place at the initiative of the Armenian side.

    “The situation in Armenia was discussed ... Putin spoke in favor of maintaining order and tranquility in Armenia, resolving the situation within the framework of the law,” the press secretary said.

    "The head of the Russian state also called on all parties to restraint," he added.

  2. I updated the report above to include a post where the Biden regime got a mention..

    "Not suggesting Trump was not a war monger. He was. But not on the same caliber as “peace president” Obama. Biden will appease the self identified left and their idea of social justice by waging war on new people in new places, for all the “right” reasons. "

    Armenia fits the bill to a T-

  3. Russian and Armenian Defence Ministers are talking

    This time Russia initiated

    Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu has held a telephone conversation with his Armenian counterpart Vagharshak Harutiunyan to discuss the situation in Armenia and the Russian peacekeeping mission in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

    "The defense ministers discussed pressing issues related to the implementation of the Russian peacekeeping mission’s goals in Nagorno-Karabakh, the situation in Armenia and a number of other issues of mutual interest," the statement reads.


    Iran urges all parties to exercise restraint

  5. Good intuition Penny.

    The tragedy of the war was a harsh lesson to Pashinyan. He does seem to have redeemed himself to a degree by succumbing towards the Russian brokered peace settlement. The outcome of which has given hope to stability at least.

    The losers are those whining like France (despite a brokered peace and ineffective themselves over decades) and by extension NATO. As the warmongers they are they will attempt to derail this stability and seek a revanchist govt taking over or an overly nationalist one they can manipulate to germinate the seeds of discontent. This would justify in their perverse minds that the current brokered stability was flawed as they claim.

    If Pashinyan has sobered from the harsh lessons of war then he is persona non grata and this he will know. It seems he knows how the game is played and was shrewd to come out and call his supporters to rally against any putsch. It will be difficult for him as his popularity has obviously dwindled, particularly against loss in war and territory. As you have noted Russia, Iran and Turkey will not want any instability to rekindle again so soon, so their statements seem to think the same.

    The loss for NATO (excluding Turkey due to a strategic gain over the PKK and Israel) was a bitter pill to swallow for all the above reasons and it does seem Biden is a devoted servant of the empire. It was his predecessor (Obama) who contrived the Syrian quagmire, the failed coup of 2016, arming and allying with the YPG and the Ukraine coup. So hostilities against Russia and Turkey are certainly in his ideology.

    1. Hey Abdullah!
      So glad you've stopped by.

      yeah, it was a given that the global warmakers were going to derail this agreement- And Biden will be the grandpa face for the death and destruction. sigh..

      "If Pashinyan has sobered from the harsh lessons of war then he is persona non grata and this he will know"

      I get the impression he knows- I saw another article from a few days ago, that Armenia reached out to Russia

      Armenia seeks bigger Russian military presence on its territory

      "YEREVAN (Reuters) - Armenia would welcome the expansion of a Russian military base on its territory and the redeployment of some Russian forces closer to its border with Azerbaijan after a conflict with its neighbour last year, its defence minister said on Monday.

      Ethnic Armenian troops in the Nagorno-Karabakh region ceded swathes of territory in and around the enclave to Azerbaijan in a six-week conflict in 2020 that claimed thousands of lives.

      Russian peacekeeping troops are deployed in the enclave and, under a formal defence pact with Armenia, Russia has a fully-fledged military base in the city of Gyumri near the Turkish border with an estimated 3,000 troops.

      Russia said in November it was deploying almost 2,000 servicemen as part of the peacekeeping mission.

      "The question of expanding and bolstering the Russian military base on the territory of Armenia has always been on the agenda," Armenian Defence Minister Vagharshak Harutyunyan told Russia's RIA news agency in an interview published on Monday.

      "The Armenian side has always been interested in this."

      Harutyunyan did not say whether there were any concrete plans for a potential expansion.

      Armenian opposition politicians have called for the creation of a second Russian base in Armenia's southern Syunik region, wedged between Azerbaijan and the Azeri exclave of Nakhchivan.

      Harutyunyan said he saw no need for Russia to formally open a second military base, but said the two countries were considering deploying a military unit from the existing base to eastern Armenia, near the border with Azerbaijan."

      We can look at this request a number of ways..
      Is Armenia playing Russia into overextending itself?
      Is Armenia looking to protect itself from outside influences?
      I'm not certain, largely because Pashinyan is such a duplicitous individual-

      Whatever Armenia's reason for this request it's been very clear that US/Israel/France/EU and their pals in the PKK were never going to let this Russia brokered deal stand.

      Should be interesting to see where this is going to head?

      Take care Abdullah!
