    Axeri Sultan trying to draw Armenian forces into his fake territory, in order to survive and rule to his dictatorial and corrupted regime, for few more years. Armenia must stop Axeri adventurism, through diplomacy first, and then militarily to solve this nonsense provocative shooting delima, toward Armenia’s border villages!

    The Kura river is only 12 miles away. The Kura makes for a safer border and it is the historic border between Armenia and the nameless, ruthless and rootless barbarians in so called azerbaijan.
