    I don’t know about the US, but Russia has proven herself to not being a reliable ally of Armenia. I don’t know what is worst, a known enemy or a supposed fake friend?

      IF ARMENIA AND ITS LEADERSHIP HAD ANY MORALS AND SENSE OF UNDYING COMMITMENT TO ITS PEOPLE AND NATION, ARMENIA WOULD BE AN ECONOMICALLY AND MILITARILY STRONG COUNTRY TO HOLD ITS OWN!!! no need to rely on anybody else to save us! UNFORTUNATELY, CORRUPTION IS KILLING ARMENIA AND ITS PEOPLE, DEVOIDING ITS TREASURY AND ITS POPULATION!!! There are no boys or men to FIGHT!!! A nation of women, children, old people and smokers. U CANT FIGHT THE TURKS WITH OLD PEOPLE!!!!

    US should move its military base from Turkey to Armenia.

    In fact Armenia should ask France and Germany to also establish military bases in Armenia.

    Russians should remain in Armenia, as well.

      I agree, this should be the approach of the NEW world order.
