I have debated CJB online regarding his religious deconstructionism and his tendency to conflate mythology with scant regard to historical development and syncretism. However, this video (first one below the tweets) on the history of Azerbaijan and Armenia and the relationship with Iran is pretty good. Unfortunately,towards the end of the video, he oversimplifies the complexities of the geopolitical ramifications . Nevertheless a good introduction to the subject.
It looks like Israel (and the West) is trying to open up another front against Iran and Russia by causing more trouble between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Israel has been supplying weapons to Azerbaijan and they have always hated Christian Armenia (called Amalek in their world view). I believe that it was Russia that brokered the peace between the warring parties and as far as I know Putin’s “reward” was that Azerbaijan recently came out and said they would arrest Putin and hand him over to the ICC if he ever came to their country. No good deed goes unpunished (lolz).
3./ Strategically important, Azerbaijan buffers both Russia and Iran and lies under Georgia. A lovely spot for a “nice little war” to stir up trouble for both Russia and Iran. pic.twitter.com/O6gNl5qb0C
