Precisely so. What Jesus actually said was

In other words, Take heart Wupy and Wyrdeone, Jesus says not to get freaked out just because things look a bit grim in the near term. . . .

Day by day, people.

It might not be Nagorno Karabakh, but war is bound to break out soon in Ex-Soviet Central Asia. I think that a war in Georgia is bound to happen sooner than another war in Azerbaijan.

You might be right about that Maloy. The situation is very tense in Georgia at the moment.


It seems like Armenia has some problems with the internet connection. Cable failures...

Regnum: Armenia is cut off Internet again: cable breakages in Georgia become permanent


According to the national ArmenTel Company information holding exclusive rights on maintaining international telecommunications in Armenia, the current situation is caused by cable failure in the Kutaisi region, which resulted in the absence of internet connection in Armenia for 6 hours. Today, on August 5, cable was also broken on the Black Sea seabed. No information on when the damage would be fixed is available so far.

The current internet connection breakdown is the third large-scale cable failure that happened lately in Georgia.

I think Azerbaijan will have more important things to worry about in the near future than Nagorno-Karabakh. Its own leadership is holding on to power through questionable tactics, and with billions of dollars worth of oil at stake you could start to see a strife for control. And bordering Iran and the Middle East doesn't improve the situtation for this Islamic country.

However what you can be sure about- is that if there is a change of government, Nagorno-Krabakh will become an issue of prime importance once again, used to rally the country behind its new leadership. This happened in Georgia the exact same way, only there wasn't as much at stake oil-wise.

Azerbaijan is gagging its media. I noticed at the beginning of May that one of the sources I'm frequently checking,, was not updating any news. There were no new news articles for several days, until the 8th of May when they submitted the following article: - Azerbaijan snaps ties with Paris-based media watchdog


Azerbaijan on Monday said it would no longer cooperate with the Paris-based media rights group Reporters Without Borders which had slammed the Central Asian nation for gagging the media.

And today, I found this article:

May 21, 2007

Authorities in Azerbaijan have closed down the joint offices of two opposition newspapers, claiming that the closure was due to problems with maintenance and fire safety.


At least seven journalists are now in prison in Azerbaijan. Rights groups have warned that Azerbaijani journalists who criticize the authorities or expose corruption face a growing risk of arrest or reprisal attacks.

They won't tolerate any criticism in Azerbaijan apparently. And because they have also banned the color orange, they say there won't be any orange revolutions there...

25 May 2007

Damirbulak saying that he actively participated in the building of Azerbaijani Army for a long time stated that there is not peaceful solution to the Nagorno Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
If Azerbaijan intends to solve the problem through the mediation of international organizations, it should think over it. Azerbaijan lost those regions as a result of treachery inside. Therefore, Azerbaijan can only liberate Armenian-occupied regions by its own force. OSCE, UN or any foreign organization can do nothing for it. Everybody should remember that one million refugees and internally displaced persons are living in Azerbaijan. If Azerbaijan makes a decision on starting military operations for liberating its regions, it can liberate them,” he said.

Record gold prices causes gold rush in Armenia. And increasing the risk of war...

BBC: Armenia's controversial gold rush

As the international price of gold touches record highs, the rush is on to find and exploit deposits around the world. Old mines are being revived: new ones are opening up.


Mining experts say Zod has some of the richest gold deposits in the Caucasus region.


Azerbaijan says a considerable amount of the Zod mine is in its territory, at present occupied by the Armenian military.

"Any activity in occupied territories without the permission of the Azeri authorities is illegal," says Araz Azimov, Azerbaijan's deputy foreign minister.


Recently, Azerbaijan is believed to have been using its new-found oil and gas wealth to beef up its armed forces.

The conflict should also be linked to Abkhazia vs Georgia .

Azerbaijan ready for war?

According to Azerbaijan's President, Ilham Aliyev, Azerbaijan is apparently now ready to "wage war" against Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh.

EU officials touring the South Caucasus this week were confronted by heated words from President Ilham Aliyev, who told them Azerbaijan is ready to "wage war" with neighboring Armenia over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.


Both countries are holding a presidential vote this year -- Armenia on February 19, and Azerbaijan in October.

In the event of war, Turkey will most likely support Azerbaijan. And Russia will support Armenia. Iran? I'm not sure...
