Ok, time to address some of the idiotic claims about this country (probably written on this site by Armenians):

"Azeris think they're superior to others because they are Muslim/think Muslims are superior"
WTF? Azerbaijan is a secular state, and one of the least religious countries in the world. Most of Azerbaijan's population doesn't even pray or care about Islam. If anything, it's Armenians who think they are superior because they are Christian.

"Azerbaijan started a war against Armenia."
Wrong. The Armenians in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh (which belongs to, and is internationally recognized territory of, Azerbaijan) decided that being the majority in the area somehow meant that 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 states.

Azerbaijan beats most of them (including Armenia).
"the Azerbaijanis decided to follow a similar pattern by invading Armenian villages in Armenia, trying to annex the country."
WTF? This one is the most idiotic claim I've heard. Azerbaijan NEVER attacked Armenia. The war between the Azeris and the Armenians took place 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 by Armenians to this day.

"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."
Stealing land? Armenians occupy nearly 20% of Azerbaijan to this day. So, who is stealing who's land?
