Ok, time to address some
of the idiotic claims about this country (probably written
on this site by Armenians
they're superior to others because they are Muslim/think
Muslims are superior"
is a secular state, and one of the least religious countries in the world. Most
's population doesn't even pray
or care about Islam. If anything, it's Armenians
they are superior because they are Christian.
started a war against Armenia."
Wrong. The Armenians
in the region
(which belongs to, and is internationally recognized territory of, Azerbaijan
) decided that being
the majority in the area somehow
the area belonged to them, not to Azerbaijan
. The Armenians
also decided that
just because they lived in that
area gave them the right to occupy and annex not only Nagorno-Karabakh
, but also 7 regions around it (where Armenians were
NOT the majority). 20% of Azerbaijan
remains under Armenian occupation to this day.
"Economically and politically, the country is a mess"
Speaking on political terms, yes, Azerbaijan
is pretty corrupt (then
again, so is Armenia, and so are most post-Soviet
countries). Economically, however, Azerbaijan
's doing just fine (much better than most post-Soviet
states, i.e. Armenia). Don't believe me? Then check
the GDP per capita of Azerbaijan
, and compare it to other post-soviet
of them (including Armenia).
"the Azerbaijanis decided to follow a similar pattern by invading Armenian villages in Armenia, trying
to annex the country."
one is the most
idiotic claim I've heard. Azerbaijan NEVER attacked Armenia. The war between the Azeris and the Armenians
in Nagorno-Karabakh, a region
in Azerbaijan. It's Armenians
who invaded not only Nagorno-Karabakh, but also 7 regions surrounding it. 20% of Azerbaijan is occupied
"They are, at the least, 50 years behind every
other country in the world."
Umm... no. Azerbaijan's ahead of most
post-soviet states, including Armenia. Check the GDP, Human Development
Index, and poverty rates of former soviet countries (i.e. Armenia) and compare them to Azerbaijan if you don't believe me. Not to mention Azerbaijan's ahead of most
majority-Muslim countries too. Azerbaijan also happens to be ahead of Armenia, Georgia and Iran, 3 of the 5 countries that border
it (the other two being Turkey and Russia). In fact, Azerbaijan is ahead of most
developing countries, and ranks 67th on the Human Development
Index. No, Azerbaijan is not a developed country, but it is also not "50 years behind every
other country in the world" despite idiotic Armenian claims.
"Oh yeah, and they have
no REAL culture, unless if you consider stealing land
and constantly lying part
of the culture."
occupy nearly 20% of Azerbaijan to this
day. So, who is stealing
