00 Russia and Armenia... Friends Forever! 04.01.14

______________________________

The above images are of Mil Mi-24 assault helicopters of Armenian Frontal Aviation. Armenia is in a rough-ass neighbourhood, with hostiles on its borders. Ergo, it behoves them to cleave to those who’ll have their back in the clutch. Russia has always stood by Armenia. Indeed, the Mi-24 is a Russian-made craft. Recently, Armenia chose to join the TS EvrAsES NOT the EU… that pissed off the Americans mightily. Well, I’d say that the Armenians made the only sane decision open to them, given their situation. Armenia is safe because Russian forces are inside the country. To be blunt, the USA wouldn’t guarantee Armenia against Turkey and Azerbaijan. Indeed, given American actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and American indifference to Turkish and Azerbaijani pogroms against Christians, Armenia faced a no-brainer. Would they join with Russia, who WOULD help them when the shit hit the fan, or, should they join with the USA, who’d leave them to the tender mercies of the Turks and Azerbaijanis? After all, Armenia doesn’t want a repeat of 1915!

Armenia did the only thing open to it. Besides, both Russia and Armenia are part of the Orthosphere. Why count on strangers when the neighbours are at hand? Russia and Armenia… friends forever!
