    Since Pashinyan took over and got rid of some Military Traitors, Armenia has fewer casualties. Armenia needs to get rid of all these CORRUPT Generals and make sure that the remaining personnel are pro Armenian and not foreign infiltrators.
    .
    Armenia desperately needs a CONSTITUTION Change. Otherwise, PARASITES like Kocharyan, Sargsyan, Yuri Khachaturov, etc… will always exist. After all, these PARASITES are the ones who designed the Armenian CONSTITUTION to make it impossible for Armenia to get rid of them.
    .
    Armenia needs to thoroughly examine all agreements made between these PARASITES and foreign Governments.
    Why does Russia control our BORDERS?
    .
    Kocharyan, Sargsyan have Jewish background. When Israeli Drone killed Armenians in Karabakh, these two DOGS did not bark!!
    .
    Armenian revolution will only be complete when they get rid of these VERMIN by changing the Constitution and by revising all other previously made agreements…

    Wow, lots of passion. I’m not sure that perpetual revolution is in Armenias best interest. I did not know Pashinian before the change, and I stilldon’t know him all that well. But I’m willing to give him at least a couple of terms before starting to do evaluations. Also, Soviet Style purges of Armenias leaders is not in its best interests.

      If Armenia used “”Soviet style”” then they would have killed them all by now. You are WRONG.
      These CRIMINALS must be prosecuted and all the money LOOTED by them form Armenian people be returned to Armenians.
