      On October 4th Armenian Americans in Los Angeles will have a choice: To stand proud and strong for Hai Tahd, the sacred cause of our ancient nation, or to cross the protest line to dine at Beverly Hills Hotel and raise a toast to Serj Sarkisyan as he prepares to give away, with the stroke of his pen, the Armenian rights, dignity, and security that generations of men and women have fought and died to defend.

      You can’t blame the guy for trying to get many perspectives….I’m not saying I agree with the protocols (they need to move more prudently without compromising what is important, like the Genocide or Artsakh), but at least on the surface it seems like Pres. Sarkisian cares about what the diaspora thinks. He is not as bad of a person and leader that everyone here makes him out to be. Months ago he made an impassioned plea for the diaspora to help Armenia; one Russian millionaire (I think) gave a lot of money to help out Armenia’s infrastructure.

      Serzh Sargsyan must be impeached and expelled from Armenia if we are to save Armenia, Artsakh, the Armenian Cause and Armenian national interests. In essense he is continuing the work of Levon Ter Petrosian another stooge of foreign powers who ultimately under pressure resigned from presidency.
      Believe me, if Vazgen Sargsyan was alive he would have not let these two bastards endanger the national interests of Armenian people.
      All healthy Armenian parties must work together in order to get rid of this traitor and imposter. I urge all Armenians to protest visits of Serzh Sargsyan to our communities in diaspora in protest of signing of protocols
      and demand his resignation.

      hey rz…….You can honestly say the man is not compromising the importance of the Amrenian Nation
      Such as the Genocide and Artsakh????

      it is amazing how you can see one Russian millionaire that (you think) gave a lot of money…..but Diaspora didnt help where have you been?? How did the road from Artsakh to Armenia got build; now wasn’t that becuase of Diaspora…… attention…..I call for his and nalbandian’s resignation before we loose what we have…….

      We need to understand that without opening boarders Armenia pays double the tax on products hat pass through tbilisi. That is who our enemy is. We have Artsakh, we wont return it. What we as Armenians need is to help our Motherland( Hayastan and Artsakh) to establish reliable transit rout for our products. Lets face it Armenia need money, the only way to make money is to sell products that you make, and to sell products you need reliable and cheap routs.answer comes up “turks”.

      Serge is someone who gets his kicks having the leaders of foreign powers stroke his ego. He is star struck. To him, getting a phone call from the likes of – ugh – Hillary Clinton makes his day. He is thrilled when he sees her pantsuit.

      Don’t tell me that he and others are not thinking that they can get a Nobel prize.

      He cares more about himself and what non-Armenians think than about what Armenians think. That is what a disgusting person he is.

      Sargsian and Nalbandian are obsessed with Turkish delights, and Turkish bath, these two clans like to be heroes, in front of Mrs. Clinton, and President Gul, and President Sarkozy, so why we should bother and protest, where they already damage Armenian statehood, only things left for them to resign, and seek for an asylum in Turkey or France.

      My beloved Armenian sisters and brothers, yesterday at Beverly Hills you saved my Armenian soul. For long I have felt like Pokr Mher that our forfathers told us, that he was so sad of the evils that existed in the world, he entered the cave-rock of eternity, whereupon the cave closed on him at the Mheri Door. But now, I feel more assured on what William Saroyan and Armenian poets told us, that you cannot kill an Armenian soul, eventually it will find a crack of liberty and will survive its destiny. To very youth, I have one thing to say:
      Every national can assimilate easily to become American or European, but only a brave invidual can re-Armenize herself or himself.

      While you are just talking to yourselves, those lunatics are happily pushing forward their agenda of selling the nation, in couple of day’s time he will just fly to Ankara and sign the contract of selling Armenia with dreams and hopes of 8 million Armenians, rendering future generations homeless, is there someone to stop him?
