Baku Boasts Ability to Destroy ‘Any Object’ in Armenia

YEREVAN (Mediamax)—The Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan stated that “Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian will as soon as possible answer to the Azerbaijani nation and [international courts of justice] for his bloody acts.”

As Interfax-Azerbaijan informs, the statement was published on the website of the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.

“This criminal whose hands are soaked in the blood of innocent people as a result of crimes committed in Khojaly, other villages and settlements in Nagorno-Karabakh including in inhabited localities adjacent to the seven regions will as soon as possible answer to the Azerbaijani nation and international just court,” the statement reads.

“As to ballistic missiles about which Serzh Sarkisian spoke, we firmly state that the military equipment Armenian Armed Forces possess can nowise be compared to the modern armament and equipment Azerbaijan possesses. The defective, expired and outdated equipment Armenia has since the Soviet era, including the “Scud” liquid-propellant missiles are not only incapable of destroying an object but cannot even fly,” the statement of the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reads.

“If Armenia resorts to military operations against Azerbaijan, then the Azerbaijani army armed with state-of-the-art, modern and high-precision armament will destroy any military infrastructure and strategic object in the territory of Armenia,” the statement notes.

The Azeri minister was responding to statements by Sarkisian that Armenia’s military is capable of targeting Azeri settlements if, as Azerbaijan’s Minister of Defense threatened, Azerbaijan targeted Yerevan. The Azeri Defense Minister claimed that Baku’s military could “raze Yerevan to the ground.”

Meanwhile, military experts say that Scud is a top-class ballistic missile due to its impressive destructive potential. In addition, the Armenian Armed Forces have thoroughly improved the precision of the missiles.

It should be noted that on Monday, Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian stated in an interview with ArmNews TV that he does not find it rational to respond to every statement made by the representatives of Azerbaijan.

    Folks, you need to realize, if you have not already, that there is a pattern here in which the Azerbaijani criminals conduct themselves towards the Armenians and that is by empty rhetoric to try to intimidate them. This is typical of badly defeated and humiliated leaders and their people.

    The only outlet they have to express their frustrations about a foe against whom they fictitiously feel superior when quite the opposite and the reality has been staring them in the face for last twenty plus years and every day of their pathetic lives. If you notice they keep using the harshest words to show their helplessness by using words such “raze to the ground” or “we can do this and do that if we want” but we don’t because we are peaceful and value human life and other similar garbage. They respect human life except the life of the Armenians.

    The fact is that no matter how many billions of dollars of oil money, most of which is exported and hidden in foreign shores for when their power comes to an end, these criminals steal from their impoverished people, who live in box carts and railroad stations, and use that money to buy military toys to try to regain a piece of their lost manhood and no matter how loud they bark they still need the heart to put their words into action and it is quite obvious and crystal clear that they don’t have the heart because the Armenians took their hearts away decades ago.

    In recent times, I can count at least two dozen times that I have heard the same stale repetitive and belligerent nonsense talks from these gutless, sorry excuse for men, idiots about their capabilities but always fell short when it came to manning up and putting their petrodollars where their mouths were. Unlike the Armenians, who show their toughness in the battlefield, all these Azerbaijani racist and caged animals know to do is to talk empty tough talk to pump up their hollow and defeated souls. They can’t help it, it is in their DNA.

    I personally don’t expect any less trash talk from these cowards because, after all, the prime example of courage they have in front of them is their fake president and chicken-hawk Aliyev who, during the war and at his prime military age, instead of putting on his artificial country’s fake uniform to show his patriotism, was instead hiding behind his late father’s skirt while all the current and former Armenian presidents and ministers were fighting on the front lines as soldiers and commanders, sending his countrymen back to Baku in body bags and chasing the rest back into their caves.

    Let the dogs bark while the Armenian caravan moves on!

      Nice way to answer away the issue of the 4 billion dollars worth of sophisticated weapons, but at the end of the day it’s still 4 billion dollars worth of sophisticated weapons. With Mother Russia’s interests at heart, the political cover for further escalation is just a matter of time.

    Funny to hear this. But the fact is that no oil rich country has ever won a war despite the millions if not billions they spent on arms. Someone needs to tell this Mongoloid Aliyev and his gang, “wake up and smell the roses”!

    Notice that no country – not Armenia’s “ally” Russia, the US, or Europe – responds to aggressive Azeri statements or blames Azerbaijan.
    Azerbaijan may now well be able to destroy anything in Armenia or Artsakh thanks to advanced weapons sold to Azerbaijan by Russia and Israel. Let’s think about that, shall we?

    • Gurgen said:

      If they could then they would have done so by now. Why haven’t they? Why don’t you go think about that one shall you?

    • Armen said:

      Yes. But since Russia owns all the nice stuff there is a good chance Azerbaijan will get bombed back into the stone-age if they do start blowing stuff up.

    There is 44 billion dollars invested by British Petroleum to build a pipeline and Azerbaijan wants to get this war out of the way in hopes of ‘securing’ a safe pipeline. If you ever visit Karabakh, as I have, you realize that they are strong people and they know the terrain and mountains like the back of their hands – there is no jet, tank, missile or other technology that can win this war !

    Forget all the things they say,do you think really that they renounce to thier billions of dollars
    accumulated, NO.
    After all do USA or Russia have a real gain to let Armenia destroyed, always NO.

    Off course Azarbaijan stock piled arms & ready to start its 2nd stage war, the problem is they are not sure what will happen to them & what will be the outcome. That is why choose wailing & barking from distance.

    Aliyev doesn’t care about Azerbaijan. He cares about the money.. He’s a typical Turkish thug. Preys on the weak but will never ever fight or risk himself if he doesn’t feel he has the absolute upper hand.

    Sarkisian needs to END ALL DIALOGUE until the useless and corrupt mediators start to condemn this piece of garbage..
