More hypocrisy straight from PACE


Browsing through the web page of PACE today, I saw that Secretary General Terry Davis made this comment just hours ago, when addressing the issue of downsizing of PACE:

''There is a cost attached to that – a cost which can be measured not only in less democracy, less human rights and less rule of law, but also in financial terms. In money which will have to be spent on putting out fires which can be prevented if we have not only the will but also the means to act in time.''

Wow. He's right, at least in one way. If PACE had had "the will" back in March- when they could have been "in time" - they could have made a difference. They definitely had "the means."
Things aren't black and white. But the fact is that they inserted themselves into a situation where they claim objectivity and imply an ethical upper hand. Yet their own involvement has been completely subjective, and unethical. It led to the situation getting worse, not better. And at every turn, every opportunity, when they had "the means," they did not have "the will."
They fed the fire until it became a pyre.

And now these articles 225 and 300 are supposed to be a bucket of water on the pyre.
Wondering what they are?
The entire criminal code of Armenia is available online, here.
And the National Assembly Website explains, generally, what the first step of the plan is, here.

Jackass Pashinyan and the other lunatics whipping up the masses into hysteria were pouring gas on the fire. That will not be forgotten.

Dear Anonymous,
It is best for those who had not witnessed the March 1 day not to comment on anything.You have embarrassed yourself. You were obviously not there.

If there is a jackass, it is not Pashinyan, Dear Anonymous...
Stop thinking like getto people...wake up and understand that the free people of Armenia do have rights and freedoms that have to be respected. Next time, please think before you post anything.

If only we had more Pashinyans in Armenia and the diaspora, of the jackass variety or otherwise. Maybe then, and must maybe, we would not be a people at whom the EU can spit as it pleases. Wake up, Anonymous #2, and grow up. Or do you, like many diasporans, think that the population of Armenian should grovel before the oligarchs who have turned the country into a private corporation.

seriously, does anyone take the lunatic pasha seriously? i mean this collection of misfits rallying around him and the cyclops is a joke. call the spade a spade, folks.

I suspect that there are 1 or 2 anonymous trolls circling around in blogs and spewing their poison calling Pashinian a lunatic and LTP a blind. This troll is prevalent on my blog, too, always saying the same thing over and over.

I have had suspicions that this is a person serving the interests of the bandito-KGB of Armenia but his/her posts are just too simplistic and devoid of creativity.

I suggest that the two anonymouses move to a more convenient blog, namely that of Uzogh. You will find ppl there with similar views and interests. And will always be welcome repeat the same thing over and over again.

Actually, I would venture to guess that none of these characters are particularly popular (Pashinyan, Serj Sargsyan, LTP, Grzo, etc).

It shouldn't be surprising that blogs which are thinly veiled propaganda pages for former discredited politicians will hardly cause much resonance among typical Armenians who blame the successive Armenian governments (and their paid lackey "journalists") for the misery that the population has endured.

i can feel the jealousy boozing from baseless comments made by anonymous (a tashnag from diaspora obviously) , if you dislike pashinyan or LTP for a reason or envy them for their popularity unlike you, why don't you tell your tashnag vahans and hrants and the rest of the gang who spare on your diaspora money, to organize meetings, lead the people instead of hiding under the skirt of SS and stealing budget money from some ministries under the veil of "coalition"
