      In//////gain the thrust.

      My dear,
      the headline, the text, where not mine.
      You are retrospectevly putting words in my mounth... and that's a petty.

      1- you got in the trap of a moron called Lampron (I bet he does not even know the story of the place he calls himself after), who grossly manipulated my post.
      2- What should I do? React every time a child does a childish trick???
      3- Mr Shirinyan is well known pro-russian personality in Yerevan. If he says a word against Russia, you may bet he does it against his wish and in despair... when you began your trikomania thing, I am just posting more the most pro russian spokesperson's ideas for yourlikes
      4- I, in my own words, clearly said that everybody did save Turkey on his own turn, but in our darkest hour, when hell and paradise were at reach in a matter of months, it is Russia that did save Turkey, and that is a fact. That if there is one other nation responsible of our fate, after Turkey, and before Kurds, that is Russia.


      Manipulating the words of others, is not an honor.
      Recycling the manipulation of others, specially after realising it, is not different.
      Persisting in it, is already intellectual dishonesty, and dishonor.

      Re: Regional geopolitics

      When did I talk of a revolution?

      When did I defend a party, or an opposition group?

      Do not put your ideas in my mouth+++

      I am a realist person, and do know, what my country can bear, or not.
      A revolution is something we can't afford.
      Specially when what you call an opposition is inexistant.

      You have dreams about a good opposition.
      Who tells you no?
      But as I said once and repeat again, that's an internal matter, even if directly related from our geopolitical situation.
      Yet, opposition or neo-opposition will not change geopolitics.
      Here we debate geoplitics.

      1- Please stop manipulating my words +++
      2- If you have something to say about the content of an article I post, tell it there.
      3- If you have something to say about the media thing, you have a thread, a refreshed it for you.

      .
      Now, with your insistance, I am forced to reply to the childish act of Mr Lampron.
      1- The text, the Headline, the source are of course not mine. The link is evident over there. If I add a word, usually I use HK (that is Hed Krutyun), or NB (Nota Bene), or else I use an other language than the text, in which case, there is automatic evidence.
      2- I put the headline in Red, because, for me, that headline with the face of Mr Shirinyan, who "every morning" calls interviews (Asoulis) repeating that where we are, we have no choice but Russia.... it is a sensation. I will do the same, if unfortunately we are obliged to bear Mr Nalbadov for years, and in coming year, he does same declaration...
      3- Anybody hearing the interview, does understand , what is said clearly in it. There is no room for misinterpretation.
      4- All the fuss you complain about for 3 days, is the consequence of the chain reactions, to which I replied very clearly. No one could demonstrate I am wrong chronologically. Bringing in the responsability of the Brits or France, or Germans, or US, or Venice, Vatican, Persia..... (things I never argued) in other moments, in a fury does not change to the fact, that RUSSIA DID SAVE TURKEY in 1918/21. The rest is the consequences of that specific act, that I personally said, I could understand from a russian perspective, ... but it happens I am not russian.
      5- If you have anything to say about my words, and my demonstrations, you are welcome.

      Կրեմլը փորձում է օգտագործել Ադրբեջանի և ԵՄ-ի միջև վեճը՝ հույս ունենալով իր ազդեցության ոլորտ վերադարձնել Բաքվին. ռուս քաղաքագետ
      24.09.15

      http://www.tert.am/am/news/2015/09/24/russia/1798162





      Քաղաքական գիտությունների թեկնածու, Կենտրոնական և Արևելյան Եվրոպայի հարցերով փորձագետ, Deutsche Welle-ի սյունակագիր Իվան Պրեոբրաժենսկին իր հերթական հոդվածում գրում է, որ Կրեմլը փորձում է որքան հնարավոր է ակտիվ օգտագործել Ադրբեջանի և Եվրամիության վեճը՝ հույս ունենալով իր ազդեցության ոլորտ վերադարձնել Բաքվին։

      Եվրախորհրդարանի ընդունած քննադատական բանաձևից վիրավորվելով՝ պաշտոնական Բաքուն սպառնացել է ԵՄ-ին դուրս գալ «Արևելյան գործընկերություն» ծրագրից։ ԵՄ-ից Ադրբեջանի հեռանալը ձեռնտու է Ռուսաստանին, կարծում է քաղաքագետը։

      Կրեմլը պատրաստակամորեն որոշել է լրացնել ստեղծված դիվանագիտական վակուումը, քանի որ դա կօգնի իրեն միաժամանակ 2 կարևոր արտաքին քաղաքական նպատակների հասնել, գրում է հեղինակը։

      Առաջինը՝ թույլ չտալ ղարաբաղյան հակամարտության «թեժացում», որը պատրաստ է դուրս գալ սառեցված վիճակից։ Լայնածավալ պատերազմը Կովկասում այսօր Մոսկվայի շահերից չի բխում։ Դրանով էլ բացատրվում է, առաջին հերթին, Կրեմլի դիվանագիտական ակտիվության կտրուկ աճը Հայաստանում և Ադրբեջանում։

      Մոսկվայի 2-րդ նպատակն է անհրաժեշտության դեպքում ապահովել տարանցիկություն դեպի Սիրիա՝ Ադրբեջանի ցամաքային և օդային տարածքով։ Սիրիական գործողությունն աստիճանաբար դառնում է Ռուսաստանի ռազմաքաղաքական գլխավոր հաղթաթղթերից մեկը, և այն անհրաժեշտ է առավելագույնը հետ պահել անհաջողությունից։

      Այդ պատճառով էլ Կրեմլը փորձում է որքան հնարավոր է ակտիվ օգտագործել Ադրբեջանի և ԵՄ-ի վեճը՝ հույս ունենալով Բաքուն վերադարձնել իր ազդեցության ոլորտ։ Ղարաբաղյան հակամարտության խաղաղ կարգավորման պլանի առաջարկը և մասնակի կատարումը Ռուսաստանի համար կատարյալ գործիք է այդ աշխատանքում։

      Ռուս քաղաքագետը խոսում է նաև այն փոխզիջումային տարբերակի մասին, որը Ռուսաստանը կարող էր առաջարկել Հայաստանի Հանրապետության Նախագահ Սերժ Սարգսյանին, երբ վերջինս սեպտեմբերի կեսերին այցելել էր Մոսկվա։

      Ամենայն հավանականությամբ, վերջին տարիների «բաղադրատոմսը» շատ չի փոխվել։ Խոսքը վիճելի տարածքներն Ադրբեջանին հանձնելու մասին է, սակայն ոչ բոլորը, այլ միայն 5-ը, այն էլ՝ աստիճանաբար։ Հայաստանը 2-ն առանց որևէ լուրջ երաշխիքի երբեք չի վերադարձնի, քանի որ դրանք «կամրջակ» են Հայաստանի և Լեռնային Ղարաբաղի միջև։

      Պրեոբրաժենսկու կարծիքով՝ փոխարենը կառաջարկվեն ուղղակի և անուղղակի փոխհատուցումներ, Ռուսաստանից նոր ռազմական երաշխիքներ։ Հնարավոր է, որպես տարբերակ, ռուսական բազաների ստեղծման բարդ սխեմա ոչ միայն Հայաստանում, այլև՝ Ադրբեջանում, օրինակ՝ բեռները Սիրիա տեղափոխելու տարանցիկ կետի տեսքով։

      Մոսկվայում շատ ուրախ կլինեին իրադարձությունների նման զարգացմանը, քանի որ դա ոչ միայն թույլ կտար վերահսկողություն սահմանել ամբողջ Անդրկովկասում, այլև այն կվերածեր սիրիական գործողությունների համար կատարյալ բազայի։ Առհասարակ, միայն այդ պատրվակով կարելի կլիներ առաջարկել բազա Ադբրեջանում՝ չստանալով ԱՄՆ-ի խիստ հակազդեցությունը։

      Հեղինակը նշում է, որ պլանը կատարյալ որոշում կլիներ։ Ղարաբաղյան հակամարտությունը կրկին սառեցվում է, սակայն չի լուծվում, մեծանում է Ռուսաստանի ներկայությունը տարածաշրջանում, ազդեցությունը Հայաստանի և Ադրբեջանի վրա՝ միայն աճում, գրում է հեղինակը։

      «Թուրքիան կկիսվի իր փորձով արևմտյան առաջնորդների հետ: Երկիրը աջակցություն է փնտրում, որպեսզի կանխի Մերձավոր Արևելքի վերածումը ահաբեկչության արտահանողի»,- հայտնել է գործակալության աղբյուրը:

      Re: Regional geopolitics

      NB: What is not said clearly, is that the EU is perfectly aware, that the sudden invasion of migrants in huge and pretty organised formations is not a hasard at all.
      It is just that, organised, by Turkey.
      It is a new blackmail tool, pretty efficient.
      By the way, they make money on every aspect...
      Money from refugees, plundered... payink 5000 euros for a place, from EU, ...


      ------
      Migrant crisis: What will Turkey want for helping EU?
      By Chris Morris
      BBC News, Brussels

      "Money is not the big problem," admitted European Council President Donald Tusk. "This is not as easy as expected."
      He was talking about Turkey.

      And if one thing became clear at this week's emergency EU summit, it was that Turkey is rapidly emerging as the key ally Europe needs, if it is to have any hope of stemming the vast flow of refugees and migrants on to European soil.
      You only need to glance at a map to know that a country long described as the bridge between East and West has now become the bridge between the Syrian civil war and the European Union.
      And the narrow sea lanes between Turkey's Aegean coast and the Greek islands have become the EU's most porous border.
      So can anything be done to change that, and what does Turkey want in return?

      Well, so far, money is precisely what is on offer from Brussels - the European Commission has proposed giving €1bn (£700m; $1.1bn) to help the Turks deal with the consequences of having an estimated two million Syrian refugees on its territory.
      Turkey also figures prominently in the summit conclusions, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel went out of her way to emphasise the huge challenge Turkey faces.
      "We must make sure that (aid) programmes there are properly financed," she said, "and that we can jointly maintain better security at the borders."
      EU leaders avoid punch-up but fail refugee test

      But Turkey wants more than just money. The government says it has already spent nearly €7bn looking after Syrian refugees, so another billion from Europe is hardly a game-changer.
      The goals of the government in Ankara are more ambitious.
      In a long letter sent to all EU leaders at the summit, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu set out proposals for a buffer zone - and a no fly zone - stretching for 80km (50 miles) in northern Syria.

      If it could be made safe, the letter suggested, it could be used as an area for the "voluntary return of refugees".

      Or to put it another way, if you don't want them all heading west towards Europe, how about helping us send them back east, into a safe zone in Syria?
      At first sight it might sound like a viable solution. But it is fraught with danger, difficulty and geopolitical complications.
      Turkey has floated the idea before, and it may see the current migration crisis as another opportunity to press its case.
      But the Turks also want the buffer zone to split Kurdish militias fighting against the Islamic State group in Syria, from Kurdish PKK rebels fighting against the security forces in south-eastern Turkey.


      Visa requirements

      In the circumstances, it is hardly surprisingly that there is little enthusiasm for the idea in the EU.
      So what else could Turkey get in return for greater co-operation on the refugee issue?

      One potential carrot is progress on visa liberalisation - with the eventual goal of lifting visa requirements for Turkish citizens travelling to Europe.
      "That is certainly on offer," one official in Brussels said, although some countries would be more hesitant than others.
      All of this will be the subject of a series of high-level meetings in the coming weeks.
      Angela Merkel will meet Prime Minister Davutoglu at the UN General Assembly in New York next week, and then Turkey's powerful President, Tayyip Erdogan, will travel to Brussels for a mini-summit with the presidents of the European Council and the European Commission.
      "There could be some robust conversations," said one senior EU official. "And if the Turks refuse to play ball we will have to think again."
      Off course
      EU officials think Turkey is not doing enough to crack down on the profitable business of smuggling people across the Aegean to Greece.

      But Mr Erdogan will argue that Turkey has been shouldering the burden of Syrian refugees on its own for far too long.
      It does not help matters that relations between Ankara and Brussels are often strained.
      Turkey's negotiations on future EU membership have drifted off course, and President Erdogan has been criticised recently on a range of issues, from press freedom to what his critics see as his increasingly autocratic tendencies.
      But now the EU needs him more than ever, as it faces up to the scale of the refugee crisis.
      And one thing can be guaranteed - Mr Erdogan will strike a hard bargain.

      Բաղդադում Ռուսաստանի, Սիրիայի և Իրանի զինվորականների համակարգող մարմին է ստեղծվել. Fox News
      25.09.15
      http://www.tert.am/am/news/2015/09/25/russia/1799066


      Իրաքի մայրաքաղաք Բաղդադում Ռուսաստանի, Սիրիայի և Իրանի զինվորական հրամանատարների համակարգող մարմին է ստեղծվել, հայտնում է Fox News-ը:

      Լրատվամիջոցի տվյալներով՝ մարմինն աշխատելու է «Իսլամական պետություն» ահաբեկչական խմբավորման դեմ պայքարող և Իրանի կողմից աջակցություն ստացող շիա ապստամբների հետ համագործակցության համար։

      Ամերիկյան հետախուզությունում աղբյուրները հայտնել են, որ մարմնի շարքերում ընդգրկված են ոչ ամենաբարձրաստիճան ռուս պաշտոնյաները։ Իրաքի կառավարության դերը դեռ հստակ չէ։

      Նկարագրելով Բաղդադ ռուս զինվորականների ժամանումը՝ ԱՄՆ բարձրաստիճան պաշտոնյան հայտնել է, որ «նրանք հայտնվում են ամեն տեղից»:

      Ավելի վաղ հաղորդվել է, որ ՄԱԿ-ի Գլխավոր ասամբլեայում նախագահ Բարաք Օբաման պատրաստվում է ռուս գործընկեր Վլադիմիր Պուտինից պարզել Սիրիայում Ռուսաստանի մտադրությունները:

      ԱՄՆ իշխանությունները մտահոգություն են հայտնել Ռուսաստանի ներգրավվածության վերաբերյալ՝ նշելով, որ առնվազն Սիրիայում դա կարող է ապակայունացնող ազդեցություն ունենալ։

      ASSAD ADVISOR: 'TACIT' DEAL BETWEEN RUSSIA AND US WILL END WAR IN SYRIA
      24.09.2015

      According to a senior adviser to President Bashar al-Assad, the United
      States and Russia have come to a "tacit agreement" for ending the
      violence in Syria.

      "The current US administration wants to find a solution to the crisis
      in Syria. There is a tacit agreement between the US and Russia to
      reach this solution," Bouthaina Shaaban, a close adviser to Assad,
      told Syrian state television on Wednesday.

      © AFP 2015/ JEWEL SAMAD Syria Crisis Main Topic at Putin-Obama
      Meeting, Ukraine Issue Secondary

      "The US recognizes now that Russia has profound knowledge of this
      region and a better assessment of the situation," she added. "The
      current international climate is heading towards détente and towards
      a solution for the crisis in Syria."

      Still, a statement from US Defense Secretary Ash Carter casts doubt
      on such an accord.

      "We will continue to work with Russia on issues where our interests
      overlap," he said, according to Reuters. "It is possible but not yet
      clear that such an overlap might exist in Syria."

      Over 240,000 people have been killed since the crisis began in 2011,
      and millions have been displaced, creating the refugee crisis in
      Europe. While Russia has advocated for diplomatic discussions to
      bring about calm, the US and other Western nations have resisted,
      insisting on Assad's removal from office as a prerequisite for peace.

      Agreement' to Share Info on Syria

      "Russia has provided and will provide adequate support to the
      legitimate government of Syria in the fight against extremists and
      terrorists of all kinds," Ilya Rogachev, head of Russian Foreign
      Ministry's Department for New Challenges and Threats, told RIA Novosti
      on Thursday.

      Amidst the ongoing conflict, a number of US allies have begun to take
      note of the need for cooperation with both Russia and the legitimate
      government of Assad.

      "We need to talk to many participants, including Assad," German
      Chancellor Angela Merkel said following an EU summit on Thursday.

      On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Israeli Prime
      Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Conferring in Moscow, the two leaders
      reached a "preliminary agreement" to share information on Syria.

      Syria in Counterterrorism

      "In regard to the channels of exchanging information and agreeing
      possible activities, then yes, this topic was discussed and preliminary
      agreements were reached during the meeting with Netanyahu," Kremlin
      spokesman Dmitry Peskov said during a news conference.

      The West has also been critical of the Kremlin's long-standing policy
      to provide the Syrian government with equipment, weaponry, and training
      in its fight against terrorism. While Russia has made no secret of its
      actions in the region, Washington has repeatedly accused Moscow of a
      "military intervention."

      And the narrow sea lanes between Turkey's Aegean coast and the Greek islands have become the EU's most porous border.
      So can anything be done to change that, and what does Turkey want in return?

      Well, so far, money is precisely what is on offer from Brussels - the European Commission has proposed giving €1bn (£700m; $1.1bn) to help the Turks deal with the consequences of having an estimated two million Syrian refugees on its territory.
      Turkey also figures prominently in the summit conclusions, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel went out of her way to emphasise the huge challenge Turkey faces.
      "We must make sure that (aid) programmes there are properly financed," she said, "and that we can jointly maintain better security at the borders."
      EU leaders avoid punch-up but fail refugee test

      But Turkey wants more than just money. The government says it has already spent nearly €7bn looking after Syrian refugees, so another billion from Europe is hardly a game-changer.
      The goals of the government in Ankara are more ambitious.
      In a long letter sent to all EU leaders at the summit, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu set out proposals for a buffer zone - and a no fly zone - stretching for 80km (50 miles) in northern Syria.

      If it could be made safe, the letter suggested, it could be used as an area for the "voluntary return of refugees".

      Or to put it another way, if you don't want them all heading west towards Europe, how about helping us send them back east, into a safe zone in Syria?
      At first sight it might sound like a viable solution. But it is fraught with danger, difficulty and geopolitical complications.
      Turkey has floated the idea before, and it may see the current migration crisis as another opportunity to press its case.
      But the Turks also want the buffer zone to split Kurdish militias fighting against the Islamic State group in Syria, from Kurdish PKK rebels fighting against the security forces in south-eastern Turkey.


      Visa requirements

      In the circumstances, it is hardly surprisingly that there is little enthusiasm for the idea in the EU.
      So what else could Turkey get in return for greater co-operation on the refugee issue?

      One potential carrot is progress on visa liberalisation - with the eventual goal of lifting visa requirements for Turkish citizens travelling to Europe.
      "That is certainly on offer," one official in Brussels said, although some countries would be more hesitant than others.
      All of this will be the subject of a series of high-level meetings in the coming weeks.
      Angela Merkel will meet Prime Minister Davutoglu at the UN General Assembly in New York next week, and then Turkey's powerful President, Tayyip Erdogan, will travel to Brussels for a mini-summit with the presidents of the European Council and the European Commission.
      "There could be some robust conversations," said one senior EU official. "And if the Turks refuse to play ball we will have to think again."
      Off course
      EU officials think Turkey is not doing enough to crack down on the profitable business of smuggling people across the Aegean to Greece.

      But Mr Erdogan will argue that Turkey has been shouldering the burden of Syrian refugees on its own for far too long.
      It does not help matters that relations between Ankara and Brussels are often strained.
      Turkey's negotiations on future EU membership have drifted off course, and President Erdogan has been criticised recently on a range of issues, from press freedom to what his critics see as his increasingly autocratic tendencies.
      But now the EU needs him more than ever, as it faces up to the scale of the refugee crisis.
      And one thing can be guaranteed - Mr Erdogan will strike a hard bargain.

      But but I thought it was Russia that saved Turkey...

      An Israeli-Russian team will coordinate aerial and sea operations
      DEBKA

      September 24, 2015,

      An Israeli military officer reported Thursday that an Israeli-Russian coordination team set up to prevent the countries accidentally trading fire in Syria will be headed by their deputy armed forces chiefs and hold its first meeting by Oct. 5. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the officer said the talks would focus on aerial operations in Syria and "electromagnetic coordination” – referring to agreement not to scramble each other’s radio or radar-tracking systems and identifying each other’s forces in the heat of battle.
      Israel and Russia will also coordinate sea operations off Syria's Mediterranean coast, where Moscow has a major naval base. DEBKAfile reported earlier that the two deputy chiefs would operate a hot line between them and meet in person to maintain contact.

      Russian marines join Hizballah in first Syrian battle – a danger signal for US, Israel
      DEBKA
      25 Sept 2015

      Before dawn on Thursday, Sept. 24, Russian marines went into battle for the first time since their deployment to Syria, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources reveal. Russian Marine Brigade 810 fought with Syrian army and Hizballah special forces in an attack on ISIS forces at the Kweiris airbase, east of Aleppo.
      This operation runs contrary to the assurances of President Vladimir Putin to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sept. 21 – just three days ago - that Russian forces in Syria were only there to defend Russian interests and would not engaged in combat with the Syrian army, Hizballah or Iranian troops.
      The ISIS force defending the air base is dominated by Chechen fighters under the command of Abu Omar al-Shishani, who is considered one of the terrorist organization’s leading commanders in the last two years. The 27-year-old al-Shishani hails from the Chechen enclave of Pankisi in Georgia, like many others who joined ISIS from 2012.
      However, targeting Chechen fighters was not the only reason for the order given by Russian command in Syria to attack the air base. In DEBKA Weekly 678 of September 11, we predicted that the first Russian mission in Syria would be to break the Syrian rebel siege on Aleppo, Syria’s second-largest city.
      As their first step, the Russians would have to prevent the cutoff of highway 5, running from Aleppo to Damascus, and keep it open for Syrian army reinforcements and military equipment to the city.
      The offensive to regain Kweiris airbase that fell to ISIS in mid-June is the first step in the implementation of Russia’s operational plan for the Aleppo area.
      Meanwhile, little substance was to be found in the reports appearing, mainly in the United States, suggesting that Putin, disappointed by the Obama administration’s unwillingness to send the US Air Force to collaborate with Russia in the fight against ISIS, would try to talk Obama round if and when they meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly on September 28.
      According to DEBKAfile’s sources, these reports were spread to cover up the serious crisis in the US war against ISIS.
      While Russia poured troops and advanced hardware into Syria, establishing bases and launching offensive action, the US anti-Islamic State effort suffered a heavy blow with the decision of Obama’s ISIS war czar, Gen. John Allen, to step down in early November.
      Sources close to the general were quoted as referring to his frustration “with the White House micromanagement of the war and its failure to provide adequate resources.”'
      The fact that the Russian forces launched their attack on ISIS shortly after the announcement of Allen’s upcoming resignation shows that Putin is not waiting for US cooperation in the war on the Islamist terrorists. That said, DEBKAfile’s military sources point out that the most ominous aspect for the US and Israel of the Russian attack on the Syrian airbase is that Russian marines were combined with Syrian and Hizballah special forces.
      For the first time in 41 years, since the 1974 war of attrition against the IDF on the Golan, Russian troops are fighting alongside Syrian forces. It is also the first time that a world power like Russia is willing to go into battle with an acknowledged terrorist group, such as Hizballah.
      Our sources point out that the joint attack was completely counter to the tone and the content of the comments exchanged by Putin and Netanyahu at their summit.
