    That’s expected from Turk and Azeri savages. They have no understanding of the word “tolerance”…

    No shit this would happen. Armenians should know to always be on the defensive when dealing in areas that have Turks or Azeris in them. If they would axe someone in their sleep, I doubt they would care about a booth.

    The heirs of the criminal turks and azeris ( azeris have a new national hero now , the axe murderer and internationally lifetime sentenced crimnal ramil safarov ) lose control .and commit criminal acts by simply seeing a poster of Artsakh and this reflects their moral values. turks and azeris must know that the armenian land of Artsakh will remain Independent and Sovereign and will be internationally recognized soon .

    Well, Turk are loosing to Kurds in Turkey, Azeis lost to Armenias in Artzah. They are mad, and they know that their world is crumbling down. In Az. there are lezgin, latysh, avar minorities that are begging slowly to drift away from Az. Kurdistan will be!

    there is an easy solution which is always hard to do,, there is reason why the other sides are always angry and hatefull because both sides are ready and willing to hate each other but if we open our eyes well see even with out ecperience a turk or an azeri much myself the other sides just another human being and saem creation thing. so if we showed love to warsd them maybe theyll see what theyre doing is wrong and also well begin to see waht we are doing is also so soooo wrong.. to hate another human being is both murder and evil towards God and each other!

    Nothing these barbarians do suprieses me. I am sure the rest of the world will understand what the Armenian people have gone through in the hands of these monsters.
