Can Armenia Survive the Western Clock and Dagger Infiltration?

9 3 0

Ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union, The United States considered itself the sole global hegemon that is entitled to decide the fate of other international players. Acting on that premise, for the last decade or so the US would be toppling sovereign governments left and right across numerous regions of the world, targeting every government that would go as far as to publicly disagree with Washington. It goes without saying that this was done in total disregard to the existing international norms and national interests of other international players.
