Why are Armenia concerned about the withdrawal of US troops from Syria?

51
The head of the Yerevan Office "Hay Dat" and responsible for political issues of ARF Dashnaktsutyun Kiro Manoyan during a conversation with reporters on December 24 said that the US decision on the withdrawal of troops from Syria is cause for concern, reports I NEWS.am..


Why are Armenia concerned about the withdrawal of US troops from Syria?


According to him, Washington’s decision will give Turkey new opportunities to bring troops into Syria.

Manoyan explained that the entry of Turkish troops will take place from the northern and eastern parts of the country, controlled by the Kurds. The Armenian population is concentrated in these territories.

Manoyan also noted the importance of the fact that the decision on the withdrawal of troops was made during a telephone conversation between Trump and Erdogan, while it was not taken unanimously by the Washington authorities.

In this regard, we have several reasons for concern. Firstly, the presence in the territory of Syria, where the Turkish military can probably break through, of the Armenian population. Secondly, the fact that all this will happen relatively close to our borders
- declared Manoyan.

Recall that the American troops have already begun to leave Syria - after the appropriate order of James Mattis with the filing of Donald Trump. This was the last order signed by Mattis in the position of head of the Pentagon.

          They’ve been there since the collapse of the Union since 92, I think some kind of center on the territory of the embassy. Typically, the embassy has 40 employees + 20 security division of fur seals. In Germany, 150 the total composition. And in Armenia, since 92 years.

            Take more. The US Embassy in Armenia covers an area of ​​9 hectares, and the number of diplomatic staff allows for the provision of 1 representative per 1200 citizens of the host country. According to various sources (depending on the situation), the number of employees of the US diplomatic mission reached 2000 to 2500 thousand people. The number of 800 people you have indicated is the number of worldly foot soldiers providing security for the embassy, ​​spread out in buildings with a total area of ​​more than 14 thousand square meters. hi

      By the way, you shouldn't be ironic. This head of the Armenian party could easily be "asked" for this initiative by people because of a big puddle. Considering that the Dashnaks do not have much love for Russia, they can completely "sincerely" start a campaign within Armenia to maintain the US position in Syria, i.e. to protect the Armenian minority, and as you know, the Anglo-Saxons are very worried about the infringement of national minorities around the world and can satisfy the request of the "offended and oppressed" and stay in Syria.

    The Armenian population is concentrated in these territories.

    If Armenia is worried about the fate of the Armenian population in Syria, then let them start negotiations with Assad and enter into a coalition with Syria and Russia and then they will officially be able to send their armed forces to protect the Armenian diaspora.
    In this regard, we have several reasons for concern. Firstly, the presence on the territory of Syria, where the Turkish military is likely to break through, is the Armenian population.

    I don’t think that now the genocide of the Armenian population by the Turks could be repeated ...

        Kiro Manoyan - representative of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Dashnaktsutyun - one of the oldest Armenian parties that began to operate in the Russian and Ottoman empires. The party is a member of the Socialist. The Syrian Armenians, for whose fate the specified comrade is experiencing, have lived there since the time of the Armenian Genocide, when Syria became their home for them. Naturally, the arrival of Turks in the region by local Armenians, many of whom are also members of the ARF Dashnaktsutyun, causes quite specific associations.

        What bothers you is that the Armenians cannot rejoice at the arrival of the Turks? Let government troops come there, it’s just the same for the locals. Anyone, not the Turks. This is the logic of the statements, and not your fantasies about grabbing the fellow countrymen.

But in Turkey, Armenians live quietly, work, study, and occupy a prominent position in society. I remember the sad moment of the murder of the Armenian journalist Hrant Dink (Heavenly kingdom), so the Turks no less mourned and were outraged by this godless act.

            Do not tell, for Christ's sake, about the Armenians in Turkey. At the beginning of the 20th century, out of 10 million of the population of Turkey, 2,5 million were Armenians. Now Armenians in Turkey are officially 60 thousand (!) People. And the last Armenian pogrom was in the 70s.

    Good day, and WITH THE COMING EVERYTHING. According to the article, for a start, I would like to tell local users for information that the office of Ay Date is located on the territory. Their main occupation is promoting the recognition of the Armenian Genocide, in this regard, lobbying for Armenian interests, as well as MILLIONS of dollars to "lubricate" the necessary Americans. That, in my personal opinion, is stupid. Further, the Dashnaktsutyun party has long outlived its usefulness, and they are political dependents. And their place in the historical "trash heap". What was clearly shown by the elections in Armenia, where this party didn’t get into Parliament AT ALL. The only national good cause of the Dashnaks is the Middle East, where, thanks to this particular party, the Armenian diaspora countries are organized, armed, trained (both in the military and in the national-cultural aspect). In most cases of civil conflicts, the Armenians adhere to armed neutrality. As for the conflict in Syria, the local diaspora WHOLY came out in defense of the country's legal authorities. And with weapon in hand fights against every terrorist. As for the Armenian authorities, from the very beginning of the conflict, they were exclusively on the side of Assad. Tons of humanitarian aid, volunteers (mainly for the protection of fellow countrymen), receiving and settling thousands of refugees (Armenians, and due to the capabilities of the Armenian economy). Plus, the recently adopted decision ON SENDING THE ARMENIAN MILITARY CONTINGENT (mainly medical personnel and sappers, to begin with) to Syria.

      With the withdrawal of its US armed forces from Syria, Pashinyan and Co. upset those recently, after the coup, who had relied on NATO and the United States. All efforts to move under the wing of NATO. (Following the example of Georgia) become very doubtful, in connection with the betrayal of the Kurds to please R. Erdogan to restore friendly relations with him .. Surrendering the Turks to the Kurds, Pashinyan is a good example of the unreliability of the new cover against the Turks and Azerbaijan, here are the questions in the ranks of the Dashnaks and others .. But the Karabakh issue has ripened, Moscow slowed down the great war (helping more Armenians). Pashinyan will lead to bigger problems, so get ready for a big war, because Pashinyan has clearly exchanged Moscow for NATO. And after all, the Turks have long been in NATO and not the last role they play there .....

      Erdogan will be satisfied only with the annihilation of any Kurds reminiscent of the state education. Naturally, this does not suit the latter. However, they are used by the Americans. Kurds are not independent, this is the problem.

    There is an Hay Dat office in almost every corner of the globe. It is interesting that his (office) is not in Armenia itself. They beg everyone and tirelessly. Even during the times of the Union, they collected funds from the Karabakh Armenians by force for the benefit of "Great Armenia". Those who refused were punished with death (it happened with families together). Even the KGB was aware of this, but there was no opposition. All these funds are spent on terrorist activities and the promotion of Armenian "ideas" by means of force (sometimes by means of soft power, as in the case of the overthrow of the government in Armenia and Pashinyan's coming to power) And since the main sponsor (or donor) is the American office (although there are plenty of them in Europe), it is not difficult to understand the whole essence of the functions of the Ay Dat --- USA tandem. As for the Kurds of Syria, the Armenians do not like them at all, and as long as there are a huge number of Kurds in Syria, the Armenians will not get a chance there.

    “Given recent developments, the Ay Dat office again calls for $ 15 million to be provided to Armenia to help refugees from Syria,” said Brian Arduni, Executive Director of the Armenian Assembly of America.

    Armenians can’t forget that the Turks during the First World War were able to stop the Armenians who made a real terror in Turkey. Indeed, at that time, with the aim of creating their own state, the Armenians, with the help of the Entente and Russia, practically exterminated the entire Muslim population of Eastern Anatolia. The Turks were able to stop the Armenians, and later decided to deport the Armenians from Eastern Anatolia. And they cannot forgive the Turks.
