A few items on the Azerbaijan/Turkish war on Armenia

1. Azerbaijan now attacking the capital city of Armenia

2. Azerbaijan using cluster munitions:

3. This video published by Turkey’s Haberturk was reportedly of an Armenian UAV being shot down by Azerbaijani air defenses. Instead, it is clearly an An-2 aircraft, presumably belonging to Azerbaijan. Was this an Azerbaijani friendly fire incident? 472/

4. Turkish marshal propaganda music video

(Lots of invocations of allah. C. explains to us that the Turkish term, “Mehmetçik” in the video is equivalent to the slang term, “Doughboy” or infantryman who fights in tough conditions.)

5. An Azerbaijani music video which seems more Western hard rock than Islamic or Eastern Europe.

(Personally I prefer the Eastern European video, Remove the Kabab. The original version was removed from YT because it was used by the NZ Mosque killer. But YT still has Helter Skelter up which was used by the Manson gang for some pretty vicious and brutal killings. Arguably the song itself was the inspiration for them if Manson is to be believed)

I’ve seen the claim in dutch media  that this bus wasn’t civilian, but was transporting volunteers to the front. No confirmation yet.

Solid evidence shows Azerbaijani attack on Artsakh was thoroughly planned

Armenia Vs. Azerbaijan

This is a series of items sent in by X. and Xanthippa and others. I may add a repost to a Brad JOhnson analysis of the situation from a week or so ago. Hopefully we can do an update on this situation today.

Armenia Declares Martial Law and General Mobilization

By the decision of the Armenian government, martial law and general mobilization are declared in the Republic of Armenia. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan wrote about this on his Facebook page.

“The decision comes into effect upon publication. I call on the personnel attached to the troops to report to their regional military commissariats.

“For the sake of the homeland, for the sake of victory,” Nikol Pashinyan wrote.

Below is Brad’s discussion of these potentialities from July 21st  2020

Brad Johnson: “Turkey (has the region) barreling towards war”

Brad has done a lot of segments on Turkey and has been quite consistent on the threat it represents regionally and globally. At this time it appears that Erdogan has carved a path for himself that leads to a military conflict that will very likely have wider implications.
