The World’s Continued Betrayal of Armenians: In this forensic analysis of how Turkey and Azerbaijan got away with their deadly land grab Aris Roussinos lays the blame at the door of fair weather friends in the West and asks why a NATO country can behave so brazenly and do so with such impunity. 

He says “I t was NATO member Turkey’s deployment of combat drones and F-16 fighters that swung the balance in Azerbaijan’s favour. Turkey also deployed thousands of mercenaries from the proxy militias who garrison the regions of northern Syria it has annexed in recent years, expendable cannon fodder shunted from war to war at Erdogan’s behest. Indeed, following Turkey’s invasion of Afrin in 2018 and of much of northern Syria last year, the flight of civilians from Karabakh will now be the third wave of ethnic cleansing enabled by NATO arms in as many years.”
