Exercise exchange: a spiral of tension between Baku and Tehran

Anti-Semitism as a cause of war


Iran and Azerbaijan by common culture and stories can be roughly compared with Russia and Ukraine. Tehran is playing the role of big brother here, and he is also not very happy with the specific foreign policy of Baku. At the same time, if Russia and Ukraine had a long period of friendship, then there was never a complete mutual understanding between the Shiite republics.

Firstly, Azerbaijan is still a secular state, and secondly, Baku actively contacted the United States and Israel, the sworn enemies of Tehran.

The relations between the countries were constantly balancing between neutrality and cold confrontation.

Characteristic attacks were not uncommon. In 2006, the official newspaper “Iran” published a cartoon in which a boy, seeing a cockroach, repeats the word “cockroach” in Farsi, and a vile creature answers him in Azerbaijani: “What?”. The caricature itself, published in the children's section, is completely inappropriate, and also very ill-considered - up to 35 million ethnic Azerbaijanis live in Iran.

As a result, Tehran received massive protests and pogroms with many injured and killed. In 2015, history repeated itself, only now a TV show on the state channel IRIB caused discontent among Azerbaijanis.

Before talking about the likelihood of a war between Iran and Azerbaijan, it is necessary to understand the level of influence of the Azerbaijani diaspora.

The north-west of the country is inhabited mainly by ethnic Azerbaijanis, and in the capital up to 60% of residents consider themselves to be of this nationality. There is also a large proportion of Azerbaijanis in the army and government, who previously refused to disperse the demonstrations of their fellow tribesmen.

Nevertheless, the geopolitical situation does not allow Iran to think too much about internal national specifics. The anti-Semitic republic is very sensitive to any activity of the Israelis near the borders. Azerbaijan, in turn, is committed to long and fruitful cooperation with Israel. Tehran, as they can, is trying to dissuade Baku from cooperating with the "big Satan" (USA) and "little Satan" (Israel), but this is not successful.

After the victory in Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev feels special inspiration in himself. Actually, the very victory over the Armenian army was largely due to the military-technical support of Tel Aviv.

Coupled with the growing dissatisfaction of Iran, sooner or later this should have resulted in a complication.

The unofficial reason was the restrictions imposed by the Azerbaijanis on Iranian trucks with oil products passing through the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. The border guards imposed a tribute of $ 100 on each truck following the Goris-Kapan road to Armenia from Iran.

"Conquerors of Khaybar"


Difficulties with border control on the Iranian-Azerbaijani border occurred at the end of August, but we see Iran's decisive response only now.

In early October, the Iranian army launched a large-scale exercise under the auspicious name "Conquerors of Khaybar". This is a direct reference to 629, when the troops of the Prophet Muhammad defeated the Jewish army at the Battle of Khaibar.

Near the Nakhichevan border, which is rather weakly defended, Iran is deploying a powerful grouping that looks very much like an invading army. The largest Iranian exercise in twenty years involves the elite 216th Armored Brigade and the 16th Armored Division. Social networks are filled with photo and video evidence of the transfer of cannon and rocket artillery, anti-aircraft systems and a mass of light armored vehicles to the Azerbaijani border.

Ilham Aliyev has already asked a question about the expediency of conducting exercises, which have not been near the borders of Azerbaijan for about 30 years. In particular, the president is surprised:

“The Azerbaijanis also ask why during the period of the Armenian occupation in this region no exercises were carried out? Why were no exercises held when Armenians were in Jabrayil, Zangilan, Fizuli? Why are they held when we liberated the land, put an end to 30 years of bondage and occupation? These are legitimate questions. "

And, without waiting for a response, Baku quickly negotiates with Ankara on holding the Brotherhood-2021 exercises, which started on October 5.

By the way, the goal of the exercise was chosen as a very vegetarian one - "activities for demining and training in the territories liberated from the Armenian occupation."

The tragedy during the Iranian exercises added nervousness to the situation, when its own helicopter shot its soldiers in the trenches, and the artillery destroyed the KrAZ truck. In total, nine servicemen of the Iranian army were killed by the "friendly fire".

Azerbaijan's position in this history is more advantageous, but only from a political point of view. Militarily, Iran's army is much stronger. But Azerbaijanis are rich in allies. First of all, behind Baku is the power of the Turkish army, which, in addition, is also a NATO member.

Ilham Aliyev demonstrates a very calculating loyalty - he does not openly conflict with anyone. Except, of course, for the Armenian authorities. In addition, the Azerbaijani ethnos shows an example of mutually beneficial coexistence of Jews and Muslims.

In this regard, anti-Semitic Iran does not look its best in the eyes of the collective West and, in the event of a war, sympathy will definitely be on the side of Baku and Ankara.

Iran possesses much more powerful armed forces and, in a certain scenario, is able to cleanse the border territory of Azerbaijan from "foreign agents".

By "foreign agents" Iranians mean Jews. Tehran is very concerned about the presence of Israelis at its borders, even in the status of military-technical advisers. Indeed, up to 60% of imports weapons Baku receives from Israel, and it is impossible to do without the presence of specialists from supplying companies.

Only how many of them are really helping with the development of new weapons, and how many are conducting anti-Iranian intelligence?

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is quite radical in his wording:

“Those who suffer from illusions will soon be slapped in the face. The countries of the region should not allow foreign armies to interfere. "

In addition to the words, Tehran closed its airspace to the military on October 5. aviation Azerbaijan. Now the transportation of goods by air to the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic is impossible.

Who is the winner?


A hypothetical military conflict between Azerbaijan and Iran seems to be beneficial only to Armenia and, in part, Turkey.

For the former, any distraction of Baku's attention is already just a gift - Yerevan is now unable to effectively resist the modern army of its neighbor. It was not for nothing that Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan managed to visit Tehran before the start of the joint Turkish-Azerbaijani exercises.

Turkey is also drawing some bonuses out of a possible aggravation.

Threats from Iran are pushing Baku even more into the arms of Erdogan, and this is the loss of a certain share of sovereignty. Turkey will not limit itself to military bases in Azerbaijan, you can be sure. Now Turkish Drones are the eyes and ears of the Azerbaijani army. Heavy vehicles hang over the border around the clock, monitoring the situation tens of kilometers deep into Iran. However, even without a war with Iran, Ankara has enough hot spots around and inside its own territory - Erdogan surprisingly managed to quarrel with many neighbors.

For Tehran, the conflict in the long term also has little to do. The Iranian armed forces are undoubtedly superior to the army of Azerbaijan and are capable of delivering fatal blows to the enemy's infrastructure. For example, attack fleet Azerbaijani oil production in the Caspian. But Iran, in modern terms, has enough hot cases - Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, payment of allies in Yemen and Lebanon. Do not forget the numerous Azerbaijani diaspora inside Iran, which will behave unpredictably in the event of a war with a neighbor. The Iranian "Bolivar" can simply not bear all this.

At first glance, complicating the situation on the border between Iran and Azerbaijan may seem beneficial to Russia. Baku's status as a new sub-regional leader will be under threat, which cannot but rejoice Russia's allies in the CSTO. But the threat from Iran could unite Ankara and Baku even more. Quite likely, in a new "union state" with a very significant influence in the entire region.

Therefore, the existing status quo with the exchange of teachings will suit Moscow most of all.

      This is true. This plays into the hands of Moscow - the fact that Iran is trying to limit Turkey's influence in Azerbaijan, in our former republic. Since they are practically unable to do this themselves.

      An interesting point. Iran is our ally in Syria. But Moscow does not perceive him as a friend. NATO country Turkey is our adversary in Syria, in Azerbaijan, and geopolitical interests have always been in conflict. But Moscow accepts Turkey as a friend. How long?

            There is no alternative to the world, Buddy. We don't want to wrinkle anyone's sides, but we won't give ourselves offense either. Regarding duties and tariffs, it doesn't hurt at all. We have no ties with Iran anyway. Only in the border regions do people sometimes go to shop, and this is only more profitable for the citizens of Iran themselves than for ours. They have a complete collapse there. For one green bill in exchange, they give a whole bag of depreciated papers. Well, the route Nakhichevan-Baku-Nakhichevan has an alternative via Georgia and Turkey. The road is certainly longer, but beauty and relaxation along the entire length.

    Now the transportation of goods by air to the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic is impossible.
    The Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic has a land border with Turkey, so they can fly through Turkish airspace (and before it - through Georgia). Another thing is that to the border between Turkey and the NAR you will have to fly along a very narrow air corridor (about 20 km long and a little more than 2 km wide at the narrowest point), sandwiched between Iran and Armenia. But there is also a road there.

    The term "diaspora" is incorrect with regard to the Azerbaijanis of Iran. Diaspora is an alien element in a particular country. On the other hand, one should not exaggerate the influence of the Azerbaijani factor in the life of Iran. When they write about 30-35 million Azerbaijanis in Iran, they mean all people with Azerbaijani roots. At the same time, for the most part, these are people who, in addition to Azerbaijani, have ancestors of other nationalities. A significant part, remembering their Azerbaijani roots, prioritizes belonging to Iran. There are those who are closer to the Persians in self-awareness. Rahbar Ayatollah Khamenei himself is an ethnic Azeri. But he is, first of all, a patriot of Iran. There are many Azerbaijanis among ministers, deputies, officials, the highest Islamic clergy, among the generals and officers of the army. Such Azerbaijanis, who are nationally concerned, who oppose themselves to Iran, Persians and other nationalities of the country, are a clear minority. The overwhelming majority of Iranian Azerbaijanis are fully integrated into the Iranian society. In the event of a conflict between Iran and Azerbaijan, it is unlikely that Baku will be able to count on support from its Iranian compatriots. In general, strictly speaking, the largest Azerbaijani state in the world is Iran, because a clear minority of the world's Azerbaijanis live in Azerbaijan.

There are, of course, those who are loyal to the existing regime, but there are very few of them.

    The tragedy during the Iranian exercises added nervousness to the situation, when its own helicopter shot its soldiers in the trenches, and the artillery destroyed the KrAZ truck. This indicates a very low interspecific interaction, when the Iranians shot down a civilian plane it was the same mistake!

      You famously insulted the Armenian Armed Forces, calling them a militia ... unfortunately (for us, due to image losses in the first place), the war showed that electronic warfare and air defense systems that have no analogues in the world are not so incredible (even if they are not in the hands of our military) maybe, at the disposal of one side, they could not clog the communication channels and destroy a bunch of "worthless" Turkish and Israeli UAVs, and from the other side they could intercept the old R-17 (aka "SCUD") ... and yes, it was precisely the war lost by Armenia to smithereens (officially this participation is not recognized for political reasons, even Armenia does not recognize the independence of the NKR) ... regarding what is considered a defeat - for whom is the battlefield left, and who came running to ask the "evil Russian invaders" to bring in peacekeepers? The Armenian side cursed that it would win and everything was wonderful in general, they shot down almost more planes than Azerbaijan has, more submarines than they have produced in all the time, and there are more soldiers than they gave birth to ... but then Azerbaijan showed trophies and published a list of casualties by name (Armenia, like as I have not done so until now) and everything became clear to everyone ...

        And where did you see the Armed Forces of Armenia there? Where was the list of losses of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan published? Perhaps that is why relatives still knock down the doorsteps of various Baku offices to find out where their children are? This war is a shame for Azerbaijan. It was not for nothing that Azerbaijan served in the kitchens and warehouses in the Soviet Army)))

          This list has been published several times with additions.
          Provide at least one piece of evidence regarding "relatives still knock down the doorsteps of various Baku offices"
          Regarding the shame, to put it mildly, I disagree)) As we say, "The Eye of the People-Libra", because everyone saw everything, everyone appreciated everything))
          "It was not for nothing that Azerbaijan served in the kitchens and warehouses in the Soviet Army)))"the purposeful and deliberate policy of the then leaders. And this was the mistake of the General Secretary. Although the Azerbaijanis did not serve in kitchens and warehouses in the tsarist army.

            Believe the official Baku, deceive oneself 100 times))) do not tell me why, after the great victory, it came to buy weapons and equipment for 700 million? As for the Azerbaijani generals, let's remember the times when Azerbaijan was part of Persia, there were probably generals of the corresponding origin there too))))

              Haha, it was Persia that was part of the Turkic Safavid Empire. And you can only trust yourself, and then with a bunch of doubts. You do not own the topic at all, communication with you is an irretrievably lost time! hi
              And not 700 million, you were wrong. Only 2 billion from Israel and 2 billion from Russia. Everything is a secret with Turkey!

                So why buy so much weapons if the enemy is defeated and shamefully fled to Yerevan?))) You can't spend on other, more pressing problems? Or maybe the victory is not so "brilliant" and it is urgent to "patch holes" in the army - the winner?)))

                    With whom are you going to fight, since you have already defeated everyone? Or not all? Or did they not win?))) If it comes to quotations, I will cite, though not literally, Baron Mannerheim: "before spending millions on defense, you must first create a standard of living that people want to protect")))

                      Mannerheim is not a Turk, the Turks have their own quotes. Or do you think that Azerbaijanis live worse than Armenians and Persians, and Turks are worse than Russians and Greeks?

                        Judging by the fact that Erdogan is going to build 1000 shops for beggars, this is not very good. And this is not the limit, the situation for Turkey is going in a bad direction, no improvement is foreseen in the near foreseeable future.

                        Come on, they don't build shops for beggars. These stores are in order to level prices and prevent other chains from artificially inflating prices. The goods go directly from the manufacturer to the shelf, that is, there is no additional distribution markup, therefore the prices are lower. There are several such discount chains in Turkey, but they belong to the owners, and these will be state-owned. What's bad about it? We also have two such networks in Azerbaijan (about 2000 points), they are located directly in residential areas, that is, for shopping, you do not waste time trying to drive into a hypermarket in traffic jams. Well, and accordingly in Turkey you will not find pensioners sticking out in garbage cans and begging for food. The minimum pension is $ 315. So what will you do ... Switch to something else.

    Iran has nothing to surprise, and therefore cannot upset: chauvinism, cynical attitude towards Islamic solidarity, willingness to kiss on the gums with any enemy of Azerbaijan - we have seen everything, we know how flaky. Nothing, they will bang and calm down. And most importantly, we do not believe, we are not afraid, we do not ask. This is the only way with them.

    Iran tries to hop onto a runaway train. The South Caucasus is a zone of influence of Russia and Turkey and is trying to take on saber-rattling. What is the only statement of Iranian officials if the Armenian army leaves Zangezur (Syunik), then it will enter there. At the same time forgetting that there is already a military base of the Russian Federation in Armenia. In a word, there is no place for Iran in the South Caucasus, the only ally is Armenia. If we consider that Iran is not in the best light on the world stage, then friendship with Armenia and Iran is something like to spite my mother's ears frostbitten)

    Anti-Semitism as a cause of war

    That's right, Israel decided to enter from the other side .. And everything again concerns Russia, our interests ..
    The Balts and Ukrainian Nazis are being pumped up with weapons, and before that Azerbaijan .. And the massacre began .. Pashinyan is their man in Armenia and soon there will be a terrible provocation ..
    Israel needs to distract Russia from Syria .. We do not let them pirate in the BV .. And they want to control EVERYTHING THERE and quietly destroy the Arabs by increasing the territory of the "land not beaten" negative
