Aliyev Takes to Twitter Again to Attack Armenia

BAKU—Azerbaijan’s dictatorial President of 12 years, Ilham Aliyev, took to Twitter again on Monday to attack Armenia and boast about his accomplishments in a lengthy series of successive tweets.

Aliyev spared few words and paid no heed to diplomacy or tact in his inimical tweets, one of which said, “Armenia is a powerless and poor country.”

Aliyev also took the time to praise his own country, saying in one tweet, “Attempts to tarnish, sully and belittle Azerbaijan, a country that enjoys great authority in the international arena today, are all in vain.”

The Azeri President’s tweets come at a time when tensions are very high at the border between Artsakh and Azerbaijan, with intensified exchanges of fire and sporadic skirmishes having taken place in the past two weeks.

Some readers on Twitter responded to Aliyev, many of them criticizing his hostile rhetoric and lack of diplomacy. “The President of Azerbaijan everyone. Hasn’t got the hang of diplomacy yet,” said British journalist Jack Moore.

Aliyev’s rhetoric has become increasingly aggressive in the last year, this being his second time taking to Twitter to express his hostile disposition toward Armenia.

In his last year’s Twitter tirade, Aliyev threatened violence against Armenia, warning that he could restart the Karabakh War, while at the same time accusing Armenia of not being cooperative in peace negotiations.

    These are the words of a desperate racist imbecile autocrat and a draft-dodger who can’t do a damn thing even with his petrodollar billions but shoot his mouth off to keep his illiterate and brainwashed peasant-minded fake and fabricated nation preoccupied with Armenians while he continues to rob them blind and steal the wealth of his artificial state, a gas-station disguised as a country, to create his future financial empire abroad before his time is up. A true pseudo-Turkish Azerbaijani mutt indeed !

    Get lost you insignificant Azerbabooni chicken-hawk and a gutless gotveren !

    Azerbaijan deserves a better leader than this dumb ass, he doesn’t realise that Oil and Gas power by time will diminish and will disappear, if he doesn’t use his income to prepare the population for the future, it’s going to become an stone age country
