    Artsakh has also succeed in making a major entrapment — 5 new tanks, the newest T-90s, will likely be added to the list soon. Preference is to capture the tanks, otherwise they will have to be destroyed.

YOU will win against ILHAM the IDIOT’s Azerbaijan army they will LOSE these border fights again and again. *THE REALITY* AZERBAIJAN is collapsing internally outflow of money in billions, unemployment all over, poverty to vast majority of people ,many journalists are in jail for voicing these problems and questioning ALIYEV familiys wealth, I can list many more SERIOUS AZERBAIJAN problems .Azeris are about to revolt and end ILHAM ALIYEV presidency. AZERIS know with ILHAM nothing will become better in their lives. SOLUTION for the IDIOT a distraction plan start another war with ARMENIA knowingly you will LOSE. the result hundreds and perhaps thousands of Azeris will die and wounded permanently.

    AZERBAIJAN should be returned to Iran .Aliyev should be deposed to Saudi Arabia and peace would return to the region , but before all this,Armenia must defeat it’s enemy once and for all.Nakgichevan would be next to be liberated from the enemy and then they would never dream of attacking ever again!The only thing these people understand is brutally force. Forget negotiations and diplomacy. We have tried all these and it has taken us nowhere because these lot are too primitive to have any notion of diplomacy or honouring any agreement whatsoever! They are gagging for brutal force,well,we WILL give them just that!

      agreed, and this can only happen with better technology, we have engineering geniuses around the world and in the fatherland, some are working in the defense industry but we need more investment in developing our own sophisticated weapons so we don’t have to rely on importing them .
