Collective Security Treaty Organization

The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) is an intergovernmental military alliance in Eurasia consisting of six post-Soviet states: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and Tajikistan. The Collective Security Treaty has its origins in the Soviet Armed Forces, which was replaced in 1992 by the United Armed Forces of the Commonwealth of Independent States, and was then itself replaced by the successor armed forces of the respective independent states.

Armenia needs to do a better job of corralling Russia. Don’t forget who is to the west. I have no doubt Armenia can rally against Azerbaijan in a battle of survival, but turkey can end the theory of an independent Armenia in 72 hours.

I disagree. I think we will be fine, because France and the US will step in if things go bad.

Right now we are rightfully pursuing an antagonistic foreign policy for all of our regional partners at once.

From the gossip in the NGO news sites and youth centers that I work with in Armenia, this is a good idea.because it shows we are a democracy and have freedom.

The goal is to be neutral and then integrate into the Turkish/NATO framework. Turks are only doing this to us because of our nationalistic leaders and ARF. If we disarm and are more peaceful they will respect that and let us live in peace.

We are showing our worth to the west by punishing the Russians for Democracy.

It may cost us land and our youth in battle but it will be worth it.

Rumors in the NGOs is after we give up Syunik and Artsakh we will be able to live in peace in Yerevan and the North with a NATO base. Then we can have Democracy and be finally independent.

I had assumed he was a troll acting as a parody of "pro-western Armenians."
