Suport Ter Petrosian ?!?
Support the man under whose leadership Armenia and Armenian nation almost perished!?!?! When Armenian became equivalent to the poorest counties in Africa When people where dying from cold during the winters of early 90's whilst his cronies were selling fuel, candles etc at over inflated prices to the nation? When anarchy ruled Armenia, when factories, hospitals state assets where being robbed and nothing, absolutely nothing was being done to prevent this?
Support a candidate who was responsible for the 'White Genocide'? A man under whose leadership up to 1 million people left Armenia? A man that famously said 'let them go cause we can't afford them'?! When the role of the leader should have been to preserve the nation's human and physical assets, but the opposite was being done. Just like our ancestors in Diaspora who still have the wounds left from Turkish genocide, many Armenians from Armenia have the scars left from Ter Petrossian era.
How can you support a candidate who is strongly favored by Turkey (recently stated that Armenian opposition parties favored by Turkey have to be provided with as much financial backing as possible to help them win elections in Armenia as this would be the easiest, cheapest route in destabilizing Armenia) Support a man who was anti – Diaspora, e.g. banning Dashnaks from political environment? A man who wants to undercut Russia's influence in Armenia when it is with Russian military assistance the war was won in Karabakh, when Russia has been our strategic/military partner for over a hundred years, when most of our trade is being conducted with Russia, when majority of Armenian Diaspora nowadays lives in Russia? Who will back Armenia in future conflicts (God forbid) – NATO/USA (pro Turkey!!), EU (i.e. NATO).
Support a candidate who intends to give territories of Naghorno Karabakh back to Azerbaijan- choosing the easy route to conflict resolution? Did he fight the war, did his children fight the war??! – NO – the war was won by the good, honorable man such as Monte Melkoyan (from USA), kids from average Armenian families whilst thugs and criminals like Levon where milking, draining the nation of everything there was valuable.
Support a man who is living in a palace worth millions of dollars in a prime location in Yerevan when his record of leadership suggests otherwise!!! Whose record in power has done nothing but left nasty marks/scars on minds and hearts of almost every Armenian? A leader who led the nation towards the path of destruction!
Why should the nation choose him again, based on what record? what achievements? future 'empty' promises? He had his chance, he failed miserably! He should have the courage, decency, integrity to leave politics for good, but the hunger for power/money/greed is too great!
