Perhaps the only geopolitical controversy where Russia is on the right side.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Both are HC, but Armenia's government is slightly less horrible.

Azerbaijan when it comes to the Nagorno-Karabakh War and its complexities and also when it comes to protecting western counter-terrorism interests. The Azeris have been a good asset in this regard. They play a good mediating role w/ Turkey and also w/ Iran.

I also support lifting the ban on U.S. aid to Azerbaijan. I think the Armenian lobby is being ridiculous in continuing to support this archaic aid blockage.


That being said, I don't like or tolerate Azerbaijan's denial of the Armenian Genocide. I think the Azeris can find a way to not be obnoxious on this issue but choose to do so anyways to spite Armenia.

Not really. Russia, like in all geopolitical situations, plays both sides.

I agree with this.

“To oppose something is to maintain it.
They say here "all roads lead to Mishnory." To be sure, if you turn your back on Mishnory and walk away from it, you are still on the Mishnory road. To oppose vulgarity is inevitably to be vulgar. You must go somewhere else; you must have another goal; then you walk in a different road.”

Azerbaijan is a secular, moderate Muslim country that we need more of, so them.

Maybe I'm taking too much of a cue from Freedom House rankings and Pew surveys, but I had come to prefer Armenia to the undemocratic petrostate.

Georgia's better than both of them, but I voted Azerbaijan. A secular Muslim kleptocracy is better than Armenia, whose territorial ambitions, emboldened by Russia, destabilize the region.

Thia is repulsive.

As for the question, lean Armenia though I partially agree with what Sunrise said. With that said, Azerbaijan can't really afford to anger Turkey, and recognizing the Armenian genocide would do just that.
I also agree with Kamala that Georgia is far better than both of them, true FF country now that Emperor Tiechewer is no longer in power.

Armenia are in some ways the original hipster Christians-they were Christian before it was cool. Literally. And have been bullied, oppressed and suffered the brunt of genocide for almost 1700 years as a result, whether it be from various pagans, the Caliphate, the Ottomans, the Young Turks and the Soviet Union. And now the Azeris and their ethnic cleansing ambitions.
