We know it best.
Can we talk? Can we for once speak the truth?
All those legends about who did what to us. Can we talk about WHAT WE DID TO US?
How about we stop passing the buck, like what mehmet, lenin and stalin did to us and start talking about what we did to us? The saga does neither start or end there.
Look at what is happening in the fiasco of Artsakh. Everyone and their cousins are talking about it, including but not limited to the likes of (ras)Putin, Medvedev, alioghlu, erbokhan, Obama and others,... OSCE, ABC, NBC, CBS, UPS and FEDEX are all talking about it. Where is our voice? Who’s listening? Who is hearing? Everything we say is echoed and misquoted from ankaka and bokhu.
This is from the category of Famous Armenians-Mikoyan.
Do we have a category of “infamous Armenians”?
All these legends to loll an lullaby ourselves to sleep at night. Anush qoun, bari yeraz. Քուն եղիր բալաս:
And this, another “infamous Armenian-Shahumian”.
We know that at that time ivan the chicken and mhmet the wolf signed, chicken- scratched on the dotted line. In 1922 when it is assumed that stalin ceded Nakhjavan and Artsakh to assergagjan, both so called Armenians, Mikoyan and Shahumian were commissars, neither of which livde in Armenia. Just like today when neither . Queen Louise, King Hovnanian, nor prince Manoian live in Yerevan. Yeah, yeah, let us bark from 10,000 miles away and see if anyone hears us and are scared.
Why did Shaumian die in baku 1000 miles away from Yerevan and Mikoyan die in moscow, 3000 miles from Yerevan? Just like Vratsian and his cohorts dying in Beirut? Did either of them have something to say about that Stalinist transfer of territories?
How about we stop lying to ourselves. No one believes our lies anyway!!!
How come Anastas did not change his name to Mikovski and Stepan to Shahumov, or shahumoghlu?
What the is “Mikoyan” anyway, is it Mkrtichian or Mikayelian? Or “shahumian”, whose , ում շահու մասին ենք խօսում/ “shah” are we talking about?
On December 1, 1920 as the news about the Sovietization of Armenia reached Azerbaijan, Narimanov, the chief of the Revolutionary Committee of Azerbaijan, surprisingly declared about the cessation of the Azerbaijan's claims to the Armenian territories and proclaimed Karabakh, Nakhichevan and Zanguezour, integral parts of Armenia. However, just a day later, the Narimanov's decree appeared in a slightly different wording: Nakhichevan and Zanguezour were recognized parts of Armenia, whereas Karabakh was given the right of self-determination.
Nonetheless, the strange alliance between the Turks and the Russian Bolsheviks played a fatal role in the final determination of borders. The Treaty of Alexandropol, signed in December of 1920 asserted the defeat of Armenia. Then in March of 1921, Turkey and Russia signed a mysterious Treaty of Moscow to tear Nakhichevan away from Armenia and to attach it to the Soviet Azerbaijan.
In summer of 1921, the Caucasian Office of the Communist Party of Bolsheviks held a number of sessions to solve the Karabakh problem. On July 4, the plenary session issued a decree confirming the belonging of Karabakh to Armenia. However, on the next day, Stalin convened an extraordinary session to transfer Karabakh to Azerbaijan. The Treaty of Kars signed in October of 1921 completed the carve-up of Armenia.
As a result of the Soviet and Turkish manipulations, the territory of the Soviet Republic of Armenia was reduced to 30,000 square km. Armenia was even deprived of Mount Ararat, its main symbol
