#Armenia decided to widen the conflict with #Azerbaijan with a lawsuit at the International Court of Justice #ICJ. It is actually good for Azerbaijan. It is also a non-starter that will backfire on Armenia for these reasons: 1) Armenia does this on behalf of itself and a nonexistent separatist entity it created to confuse world community and minimize responsibility by the name of "Republic of artsakh". It's not serious to do this in a serious venue. ICJ is for recognized legitimate nation-states.

In this thread we will reveal the demographics of the Karabakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) region since the Russian survey of 1810 till the last Soviet census of 1989/1990. (the Azerbaijani kingdom -- Karabakh Khanate -- signed the Kurekchay Treaty with the Russian Empire in 1805) according to Armenian Gen. Tormasov of Russian Imperial Army in Karabakh in 1810 there were:

2,500 Armenian families = 12,500 Armenians (21%)
9,500 Azerbaijani families = 47,500 Azerbaijanis (79%)

Who was talking about majority Armenians in Karabakh in 19 century? @Kasparov63

for decades we hear Armenian propaganda & nearly all media shamelessly falsify the historical record about Armenians being majority in "Nagorno-Karabakh". Note the terminology - "Nagorno-Karabakh" vs. Karabakh - it's very important to understand this nuance. "Nagorno" is the Russian for "mountainous" & is a later add-on, a 20th century invention, to the historic name of Karabakh (that Azerbaijani word [consists of Turkic "kara" & Persian "bagh" - thus Azerbaijani], which means black garden, dates back to around 13th century).

however, for a reformed & modernized #AzerbaijaniArmy conducting essentially a #counterterrorism liberation campaign in the #Karabakh mountains will not be harder than it would be for the #ArmenianArmy to try to hold on.

#KarabakhisAzerbajian In an interesting twist of events & fate, waging war in the mountains of the occupied Karabakh would probably be harder or as hard for the #ArmenianArmy because:

1) they didn't prepare for it there as much

2) their C&C as well as special forces have been decimated
