With so many issues going on abroad, and here in America, here is why you should give attention to this issue. Armenians, who are indigenous to the region, are not only fighting for their right to self-determination and peace, but also for survival against another Genocide set to take place by two countries who not only quoted Hitler but said they will finish the job of their ancestors (The 1915-1923 Armenian Genocide). Armenian heritage sites such as archaeological digs and churches, stretching from Ancient to the present, are being targeted and bombed in an effort to completely erase the culture. The main goal of Turkey’s and Azerbaijan’s need, want, and desire to erase Armenian as much as it could from the area is to take Armenian land (either part of it or whole) to connect Turkey to Azerbaijan physically, and through close proximity and geopolitically connect to Turkic nations of Central Asia to create a Pan-Turkic influence and empire. President Erdogan is also invading and attacking places that used to be under the Ottoman Empire in order to try and bring them under his influence as a Neo-Ottoman empire.
So why does this matter for you? For starters, as human beings capable of compassion, you are witnessing the foundations of another Genocide taking place. This attempt is also taking place with the aid of terrorists from Syria brought in to attack Christian Armenians in brutal ways. Azerbaijan and its allies are also being supplied with weapons from Israel and are funded by American tax dollars. Turkey is also a NATO member. Turkey has its eyes set on taking control of the Caucuses while also attacking Iran with the aid of Azerbaijan and the West as a way to take a stab at Russia. What you are witnessing is a possible precursor to another Syria-like situation that can lead into World War III - all funded by your tax dollars. This likely new World War will drag America, Ukraine, Israel, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Russia, Pakistan, India, Saudi Arabia, NATO Countries, and even China into the mix. Not to mention, Turkey is in direct control of ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other terrorist organizations, and has been dumping them into various locations in the region, threatening the safety of Europe if they don’t comply. The issue of Armenians being attacked, while it seems far away to you, is paid by you, indirectly affected by you, and you may soon be directly affected by it.
