$ 1Abaijan.jpgThe countries of Azerbaijan and Armenia appear to be headed towards an imminent war. 

The BBC News reports that, "Azerbaijan's defence ministry says its forces have shot down an Armenian military helicopter violating its airspace. Three crew members were killed in the incident, according to local reports."

A truce between the two countries was signed in 1994. 

According to the BBC News, "The helicopter was flying in the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh, an enclave in western Azerbaijan controlled by ethnic Armenians. A regional conflict dating from the Soviet era ended in a ceasefire in 1994 but tensions have risen again recently."

The White House has not yet issued a public statement on this matter.

Do you think that the US State Department and the EU would wake up to the realities of Azerbaijani aggression if Artsakh and Armenia were to, say, lob a few shells or missiles "near" the western-bound, US and British Petroleum & European-owned BTC and BTE oil and gas pipelines that lie just north of Artsakh in Azerbaijan? We wonder.
