    Give these bastard Turks a kick on their asses. The Turk will always remain a Turk. The Western world can not use Turkey against the Armenians. We had a Genocide committed by these animal barbarian savage and blood thirsty Turks and the Western world was in silence. Now the Western world is using these barbarian Turks against the Armenians for their dirty political gains. We Armenians are united more than ever and know who is who in this dirty game and who is plotting what against us. Enough of this support of pan turkism and pan turanism. Enough of sucking the Armenian blood.

    The Azeris are ever so confident with all those weapons under their belt. This seems just another trial balloon to gauge the other side. Nevertheless, good job in thwarting the raid.
