Crisis in the Caucasus: Two Facts You Aren’t Being Told  

 Armenia is more critical to Russia’s security than Ukraine is Armenia is Russia’s sole ally in the Caucasus, a region I’ve often termed Ground Zero for Cold War 2.0. Without its Armenian partner, Russia would lose the Caucasus (Georgia/Armenia/Azerbaijan) and Caspian Sea — and possibly Turkic Central Asia — to pan-Turkism and NATO.  Pan-Turkic ideology parallels NATO’s own anti-Russian ideology[Read More…]

Genocide is About to Unfold in Artsakh, and the West Has Secured a Front-Row Seat

Genocide is About to Unfold in Artsakh, and the West Has Secured a Front-Row Seat

For seventeen days, Azerbaijani special forces and military personnel—masquerading as “environmentalists”—have blocked the only road connecting Artsakh to Armenia. They have effectively severed the only lifeline the Artsakh Armenians have to the outside world—a lifeline guaranteed by the Trilateral Statement of November 10, 2020. With 120,000 Artsakh Armenians now completely encircled and isolated, Azerbaijan is poised to rid itself of the entire[Read More…]

Pan-Turkism’s Aggressive Dreams of Empire –Yesterday and Today 

Pan-Turkism’s Aggressive Dreams of Empire –Yesterday and Today 

linchpin_armenia_001.jpg (3507×2550) (indybay.org) Turkey’s imperial ambition of creating a Pan-Turkic empire, ruled from Ankara, is on display in today’s Caucasus and elsewhere. This racist ideology envisions an empire that would include any country or region speaking a Turkic-type language regardless of how distant that language is from the language spoken in Turkey and regardless of whether the people in those[Read More…]

How Russians Read the Conflict in the Caucasus

In the early morning hours of Tuesday, September 13, Azerbaijan launched an aggressive military assault along the borders of the Armenian Republic. Observers of politics in the post-Soviet space may be forgiven for thinking that the center of fighting was the disputed, Armenian-inhabited region of Nagorno-Karabakh (also known as Artsakh by Armenians). In fact, however, the attack targeted several towns and villages[Read More…]

Erdogan Triumphs as Putin Stabs His Best Ally in the Back

President Putin has been making some astonishing demands, including: NATO mustn’t admit additional countries near Russia, such as Ukraine and Georgia. NATO must cease military activity in non-NATO territories: Georgia, Ukraine, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and parts of eastern Europe. Yet, incredibly, Putin has himself been enabling a NATO member’s aggression bordering Russia. In 2020, the Kremlin embraced Turkey’s sending[Read More…]

Key U.S. air base in Turkey sits on property stolen from Armenians during the genocide

Suppose the U.S. built and operated a military base in Germany on property confiscated from Jews during the Holocaust. America, Jewish Americans, Germany, and Israel would have reached a principled resolution years ago. Now consider Incirlik (EEN-jeer-leek) Air Base in Turkey. American taxpayers and the Army Corps of Engineers built it 67 years ago. Its 3,320 acres are home to[Read More…]

Avoiding World War III in the Caucasus

  “The Caucasus is Ground Zero in the New Cold War between the U.S. and Russia.” I wrote that several years ago, and it’s still true, particularly after Christian Armenia decisively repulsed a mid-July attack by Muslim Azerbaijan. Perhaps dozens of Azeris died in the battles, including a major-general, colonel, and two majors.  Armenia reported far fewer deaths and captured[Read More…]
