With Armenia and Azerbaijan now pounding each other's tanks and troops from the ground and the air, a regional conflict over an old battleground in the South Caucasus Mountains is threatening to spiral into something larger and much harder to control. 

The enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh — internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan since the collapse of the Soviet Union, but in practice ruled by Armenia since 1994 — has witnessed fierce fighting on and off for 30 years.

The leaders of both Armenia and Azerbaijan have declared martial law and put their nations on a full military mobilization, blaming each other for the escalation.

Internet and most communication links have been cut, but some photos and videos posted online purport to show buildings damaged in the current conflict and families huddling together in basements to avoid airstrikes. 

Between this and what's taking place in Belarus, this year just keeps on getting more craptacular.

He's busy crusading for Muricans' rights to keep using shitty incandescent light bulbs.

Well, I guess Jared's peace in the middle east plan didn't quite pass the sniff test... The Human Shield excuse is ******* flimsy as hell... you can condemn the use of human shields as well

I watched this 2 part documentary last night on how China is implementing and executing their expansion into neighbouring countries, it's quite insidious.  I'm curious to know more about their project

I don’t see a problem, just send in that ‘Nobel’ Peace guy, he’ll square it away.

Germany's U.N. envoy, during his last scheduled U.N. Security Council meeting, appealed to China to free two detained Canadians for Christmas, prompting China's deputy U.N. envoy to respond: "Out of the bottom of my heart: Good riddance."

Germany finishes a two-year term on the 15-member council at the end of this month and Ambassador Christoph Heusgen plans to retire after more than 40 years as a diplomat.

"Let me end my tenure on the Security Council by appealing to my Chinese colleagues to ask Beijing for the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. Christmas is the right moment for such a gesture," Heusgen told the council session, whose official agenda topic was Iran.

China's deputy U.N. ambassador, Geng Shuang, accused Heusgen of abusing the Security Council to launch "malicious" attacks on other members "in an attempt to poison the working atmosphere."

"I wish to say something out of the bottom of my heart: Good riddance, Ambassador Heusgen," Geng said. "I am hoping that the council in your absence in the year 2021 will be in a better position to fulfill the responsibilities...for maintaining international peace and security."

Quite a nasty - and perhaps telling - response by another defensive Chinese gov't official. What Heusgen said was hardly disrespectful, much less malicious.

Geng Shuang* comes across as quite the assclown. But this seems part and parcel for towing the line of the CCP. And that said, **** the CCP.

* this is the same moron who crapped all over Canada last spring over the Wanzhou incident.

Once you accept that China is run by a dictatorship who have no regard for the powerless, it is a lot easier to understand.

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior figures from the ruling party have been detained in an early-morning raid, the spokesperson for the governing National League for Democracy (NLD) said on Monday.

The move comes after days of escalating tension between the civilian government and the powerful military that stirred fears of a coup in the aftermath of an election that the army says was fraudulent.

NLD spokesperson Myo Nyunt told Reuters by phone that Suu Kyi, President Win Myint and other leaders had been "taken" in the early hours of the morning.

The Human Shield excuse is ******* flimsy as hell... you can condemn the use of human shields as well as knowingly killing civilians... this doesn't even touch upon the role of occupier and  occupied...

It's made the situation so, so, so much worse. The Trump regime made the middle east even more unstable than before.

But Trump got 2 Nobel Peace prize noms out of it, so that’s what matters to them. Can’t let that “boy” Obama best the Donald. (Note: that offensive racist “boy” term is their characterization, not mine).

A few years ago, according to an article in Israel's Ha'artez newspaper, researchers took DNA samples from Jewish bodies over a thousand years old and compared them to current Israelis as well as Palestinians. Turned out that ancient inhabitants were more closely related to the Palestinians than the Israelis.

re israel gaza strip....

 

both sides......corrupt politicians, and

intolerant, violent religious fanatics are driving this awful mess.

the extremist jews are violent, racist, sexist people, and the gaza strip hamas leaders are just as bad.

a bunch of terrorists.

neither sides leaders care  about their own citizens.

side note, netanyahu's brother led the Raid on entebbe and was killed there. may explain netanyahu's apparent hatred to some extent.

You are correct in describing the current situation, but it bears noting that for over 600 years, Arabs had total control over Palestine  and the Jews had freedom of religious expression and there was peace for the most part. The change came when the UN at the urging of the US and Britain mandated a Jewish homeland. The British gave massive amounts of military equipment to the Israelis when they left and the ethnic cleansing began, continuing to this day. During the centuries that the Arabs held power in Palestine, they could have easily wiped out the Jews with little effort, but chose not to. The ethnic cleansing has provoked retaliation from the Palestinians and justified Israeli actions. The situation could easily be resolved. All the US would have to do is stop the massive subsidies of Israel and the Arabs nation could properly fund Palestinian infrastructure.

I disagree with this.

Jews and Christians  were strictly second class  under muslim rule. sometimes tolerated, sometimes elevaated, and sometimes murdered.

the infamous yellow star came into being under Islam.

there were some periods under some rulers when Jews were safe, and there also periodic pogroms. 
 

as far as recent history, thirties, ww2 head of Palestinian arabs was anti semite.

 

"On March 31, 1933, within weeks of Hitler's rise to power in Germany, al-Husseini sent a telegram to Berlin addressed to the German Consul-General in the British Mandate of Palestine saying that Muslims in Palestine and elsewhere looked forward to spreading their ideology in the Middle East. Al-Husseini secretly met the German Consul-General near the Dead Sea in 1933 and expressed his approval of the anti-Jewish boycott in Germany and asked him not to send any Jews to Palestine. Later that year, the Mufti's assistants approached Wolff,[who?] seeking his help in establishing an Arab National Socialist party in Palestine. Reports reaching the foreign offices in Berlin showed high levels of Arab admiration of Hitler.[145]"

It appears, upon further research, that I was wrong and you are correct. However ,the actions of the Israeli government in the past 20 years is still nothing short of ethnic cleansing: 1948 Palestinian exodus - Wikipedia

The UN has identified the seizure of Palestinian homes and communities as illegal and racially-based. That sounds like ethnic cleansing to me, and the Zionists (Israel for Jews only) have agitated for the eviction of Palestinians for decades. These hard-right activists have the ear of Netanyahu who has stated that the Golan Heights and the West Bank should be permanently part of Jewish Israel.  There can be no peace until there is a just and lasting peace that respects the rights of both. The extremism on both sides benefits a few who have vested interests in keeping the bloodshed going.
