    Congrats dear compatriot.
    Thank you for giving your best for our Armenia.
    Long live Armenia.
    Any thug, Turkish or otherwise, planning to destroy Armenia, watch out, your Genocidal tendencies won’t go any further than your front doors.

    PS: Turks of occupied Armenian and Greek lands (current day Turkey) and Turks of artificial Azerbaijan, can, are encouraged and are quite capable to eat “sheeeet.”
