      Those refugees also have to be willing to come to Armenia and see it as their Homeland. Unfortunately, many Syrian-Armenians prefer being shelled in Syria instead of living in Armenia. Furthermore, those that do want to leave are far too eager to reach meccas of pop culture materialism such as Paris, LA, NY, London, so non and so forth, who wants to go to “backward” Armenia, eh? Maybe in another 100 years and a second Genocide, if there are any Diasporans left, they will appreciate their homeland more and actually consider living there. Diaporans from Iran, Lebanon, Syria brought their liquid assets to places like Europe and the USA to purchase “cash” properties and fancy homes and continue to do so rather than nation build for the past 25 years. Consequently without the Islamic yolk at their throats the Diaspora is becoming a graveyard faster than ever, better learn to nation build and live there fast or become extinct, let’s see if the cycle of idiocy continues for another 100 years. . .

    Besides Syria, Iran and Russia we should add North Korea to our list of friends.
