OK, I am impressed.

One leftist politician out of thousands who actually practices what he preaches. Fair enough.

**************************

It's an interesting country:

--Historically neutral, relatively stable.

--Pound for pound, a great competitor in World Cup.

--White but not as arrogant as Argentina. Also not as fashionable, of course.

--First country, way back in 1965, to recognize the Genocide of the Armenians by the Turks.

--Now, they are apparently going to be the first country to recognize the heroic little state of Karabakh, which succeeded against 20 to 1 odds in its war for independence in the 1990's.

People say it's a sleepy little country. I see it as a little country with a big heart.
