So, after decades of conflict and ceasefires, Vivec and Ender Armenia and Azerbaijan are back at it again. Last week, there some more fighting in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which both countries claim and have fought each other over before. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/04/nagorno-karabakh-clashes-azerbaijan-armenia Both sides accuse each other of responsibility for that battle. Then today the President of Azerbaijan took to twitter launching a 60 tweet tirade against Armenia, stating that the countries were now at war. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/07/azerbaijan-president-threatens-war-armenia-twitter https://twitter.com/presidentaz Russia came down on Armenia's side in the last one (even though the USSR was on Azerbaijan's side). So the west will most likely back Azerbaijan here. We'll see how this escalates.
