BAKU—It’s a first for social media—especially Twitter. Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev took to the social networking site to threaten war against Armenia and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

In a series of lengthy tweets, Aliyev, whose country suffered major losses on over the course of the week during attempts to infiltrate the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, told his followers that Azerbaijan would do everything to destroy the “enemy.”

“We will restore all of the occupied and destroyed cities. We will return to this land, we live and will live with this idea,” said Aliyev in one his tweets, adding “We will restore our sovereignty. The flag of Azerbaijan will fly in all the occupied territories, including Shusha [Shushi] and Khankandi [Stepanakert].”

The Twitter rant comes only days before he and Armenian president Serzh Sarkisian are scheduled to hold separate meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi in hopes of resolving the Karabakh conflict.

In more than 60 tweets, Aliyev, dubbed his “enemy” as “Armenian barbarians and vandals,” and declared: “The war is not over. Only the first stage of it is. But the second stage may start too.”

Aliyev Claims “Armenians In Panic”
Aliyev further claimed that Armenians are in state panic that will threaten the existence of what he called their “fascist” country.

“A week ago Armenian occupation forces cowardly attacked our positions under the cover of darkness,” said Aliyev said in remarks on his website, acknowledging that Azerbaijan “suffered losses, our soldiers became martyrs … At the same time, the enemy got an adequate response.”

“Today the enemy is in a state of panic and hysteria,” he claimed. “We know that. We have sufficient possibilities of knowing what’s happening on the opposite side. We have fully gained a military and moral advantage.”

“Today the Azerbaijani army can destroy any facility in Nagorno-Karabakh,” he said.

    Armenians should ask twitter to close the account of this fascist whose regime has the same ideology of Nazi Germany and acting like a head of a terrorist organization ! !

    There is a saying “Barking dogs never bite” but this dog may bite since it has RABIES!

    Aliyev’s , hate and Nazi like speaches , his frustration and hate on Armenians is a sign that his fascist regime had planed large ago, to talke some Armenian potions and hostages ahead of any presidential meeting. It seems that a lot of thinks went wrong for Aliyev’s criminal regime . Turkish PM Erdogna is insulting Armenians and Turkish media like the oms from Azerbaijan are all of sudden full of lies about Armenia-

    I think it would be right if Armeian presidnet would refuese to meet this mini Hitler of Baku.

    Funny considering that the Azeri media and their poopy pants president are flaring up like a pack of hemorrhoids, it would seem they are panicking and in a hysterical state of rhetoric foaming at the mouth like rabid dogs. The casualties alone reflect the fact a squad of Azeris were caught, not in their defensive trenches, but in the open without sufficient cover being completely vulnerable to troops that are actually in their defensive positions. Azeri news i.e. Tendr.Azz etc.. are unabashed in their blatant propaganda which says much about their state of mind
