only in armenia... pre-election edition

here found some parallels between jews & armenians, then remembered the fun series "only armenians..."

let's add to the series. sorry, if won't be that funny.

only in armenia an "intellectual" comes to power with a pan-national movement & tyrannises the same folk so that in 5 years has to falsify the election results.

only in armenia the "intellectual", who has been in tribunes of mln's demonstrators & got the power only due to this national wave, will force a bloody crackdown of folks' demonstrations.

only in armenia the monster will stay unpunished & be back & play a victim, an opposition, a fighter (the only one in horizon) for democracy & liberalism. & with such cynicism discredit the ideas of democracy & liberalism.

only in armenia years after his bloody crackdown the intellectual-monster will again use mass-demonstrations & again be back to its tribunes & from there criticize everything & everybody, the current powers, the current opposition, complain of limiting his freedom of speech, of prosecutions.

& only in armenia ppl will sincerely believe in him & go after him. again.

how? koz ppl have short memory? what's this? a mass-amnesia? is it curable?

baku, azerbaijan. january, 1990.

another black day in armenian calendar. pogroms in baku. the last in the series of modern azerbaijan. & today mediators convince us to live again together with those pogromshiks?! give armenian cities & villages under azerbaijani control? fuck off. till the end of days we will remember & remind & never ever let it happen to us again.

my memories.. was still a kid, adults were trying to hide such things from us. i remember in winter of '89 during evacuation after earthquake we had a neighbor, an armenian refugee from kirovabad. every time she could find an ear, she was telling her stories.. mother didn't let us close when they were talking, but once i heard a rape story, which i wasn't able to understand back then. she was about my monther's age. alone, lost her family. i can't understand why she needed to retell & refresh her hurts all the time?! now i get, her speech defect wasn't from birth. what i cannot get, kirovabad was in 88, sumbait was even before. how, how armenians could stay in that damned country after such pogroms?!
too late...

rest in peace
