Putin sold northern Syria to Erdogan for an S-400 deal. There is no reason to not expect Putin sell Armenia to Erdogan for another S-400 deal.
The US tried to overthrow Erdogan in a coup and failed and so Erdogan felt unsafe, so to improve air defences he bought the best system available on the market.
Northern Syria was never Putins to sell.
Erdogan will not stay in power forever... it is up to Armenia.... Libya looked to the west.... Syria looked to the west... Iran looked to the west... Ukraine looked to the west... Georgia looked to the west... Belarus looked to the west... all got burned to some degree... for Libya it was fatal and for Syria very close to fatal.
Russia can't tell Armenia what they have to do but I personally don't think accepting Azeri aggression to seize lands by military force is ever a good idea.
That is an occupied region, if Armenia is so worried about a genocide they can move people into Armenia.
It is where they live. They can choose to leave, or they can choose to fight... whichever they choose genocide is not acceptable to any rational government... unless you think what the nazis did was OK and justified?
Moscow has made it clear they will not help Armenia over land even they consider occupied.
Must be amazing to be included in such phone calls...
It doesn't matter if Russia helps Armenia or not. If Russia does not help, America or Iran will step in, Russia will lose another ally in the region.
If you look at the map above your comment you will notice to get to Armenia Russia would have to go through Azeri land or Iranian or Turkish or Georgian...
And Armenia haven't made clear what they want Russia to do.
You can imagine. Having only 10 allies left in the world, Russia can't afford to lose Armenia to Turkey and Azerbaijan.
You are right... Russia should immediately launch a nuclear strike on all of the countries that didn't vote for them... the best defence is a good attack.
Hmm. This looks oddly familiar with this posting history style - Spamming the shit out of a thread.
Actually if you opened some of those posts you will see he is repeating entire posts including multiple members posts too.
Prussia aka the German Empire was abolished by the allies after WW1, Prussia is Germany in this case, Kaliningrad however even during WW2 was part of Germany. The Allies basically took Poland away from them for losing the war and made them abloish the Empire but they were allowed to keep the current lands Germany has.
My understanding is that the Soviets actually offered to give it back and Germany at the time was not interested.
Putin has done well to bring the country back from the brink of economic collapse though he really needs to leave his position to someone younger and with more character.
Yeah, Russia and Armenia need a hot headed young idiot in charge of Russia... that will make things right... Russia should do in NK what HATO did in Kosovo, because things are damn perfect there at the moment are they not?
Lots of bullshit speculation about what Russia is or is not going to do... complaints that Russia hasn't rolled in like the US did in Georgia in 2008... except the US did fuck all to help Georgia in that conflict despite using Georgian cannon fodder in the Middle East a few years prior to that...
And they've sent a convoy - who cares? The Idlib Jihadis are a spent force. They can't even muster the strength to resist the SAA and their last counter-offensive made with the support of the Turkish drone fleet ended with much of that fleet wrecked and the SAA advancing to the M5. They've even turned to exporting jihadis en masse, sapping Idlib and North Syria of valuable manpower. They have never been as much of a joke as they are now.
I think it would be better all round if Georgia had let them through and Armenia had tested her S-300s on the plane... it would be the quickest and most efficient way to get those martyrs to their 72 virgins....
@Tai Hai Chen,I spoke to you before about flooding threads with one line posts and about reposting multiple members posts in your replies, but you did not listen.
I am giving you a four day break from the forum to think about what I have said. If you don't understand or need a chat about what the problem is by all means send me a private message when you can post again in four days time.
Just a quick click on your username and choose to see all your posts shows you posted on this thread at 8:38, then again at 8:39, and at 8:41 with lots of previous posts included, 8:47 with previous posts included, 8:48 with previous posts included, and 8:50, and 8:53 with previous posts included.
As I suggested last time I spoke to you you can add comments by editing a previous comment and adding new information, or just wait until you have more than one comment to post...
You have four days to work this out...
