Armenia Azerbaijan conflict

The long standing conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan is heating up. Border skirmishes are currently happening, with varying reports on the level of intensity. So far it is getting little recent media coverage.

I find it more concerning than most regional conflicts, largely due to the alliances each country has developed. This could turn into a nasty proxy war. Also, the EU is depending on its deal with Azerbaijan to help wean itself off Russian fossil fuels.

An article from foreign affairs on the potential for this to turn into a bigger conflict:

St. John Paul II Prayer for Peace

O God, Creator of the universe, who extends your paternal concern over every creature and guides the events of history to the goal of salvation, we acknowledge your fatherly love when you break the resistance of mankind and, in a world torn by strife and discord, you make us ready for reconciliation.

Renew for us the wonders of your mercy: send forth your Spirit that He may work in the intimacy of hearts, that enemies may begin to dialogue, that adversaries may shake hands and peoples may encounter one another in harmony.

May all commit themselves to the sincere search for true peace which will extinguish all arguments, for charity which overcomes hatred, for pardon which disarms revenge.

Amen .

I don’t think any of the Azeris can beat Gor tbh.

Um, so Azerbaijan conquered Nagorno-Karabakh and is giving the Armenians the boot? Where is the UN when you need them.
