Armenia and Azerbaijan fought a very bloody war that ended in 1994with Armenia gaining control of Nagorno-Karabakh, a region in themiddle of Azerbaijan. And relations between Armenia and Turkey havebeen extremely bitter over the charges, denied by Turkey, that Turkeyperpetrated a genocide on Armenians in 1915. Add to that, Armenia hasgood relations with Russia, a centuries-old historic enemy of Turkey(Ottoman Empire). So it’s not surprising that Turkey and Azerbaijancarried out joint exercises between July 12 and 28. The major purposeof the Turkey-Azerbaijan military exercises is to neutralize Armenia’smilitary cooperation with Russia.

Nagorno-Karabakh remains a simmering open wound in relations betweenAzerbaijan and Armenia, and hostilities could resume at any time, withRussia and Turkey joining in. Jamestown

Dozens of Pakistan terrorists freed from jail in terrorist attack

More than 100 terrorist militants attacked a large prison in northwestPakistan late on Monday evening. The objective was to free some 250convicted terrorists, but apparently only 25-40 were freed. Theattack overwhelmed the local police, who faced superior weaponry ofthe militants. The attack was launched by TTP (the Pakistani Taliban)and the associated group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ). I’ve written anumber of times about LeJ, the group that has vowed that “Our mission[in Pakistan] is the abolition of this impure sect and people, theShias and the Shia Hazaras, from every city, every village, every nookand corner of Pakistan,” and have followed through by blowing upmosques and schools containing Shias, killing hundreds of innocentwomen and children. This not the first time when militants havebroken other convicted terrorists out of jail. Nearly 400 prisonersincluding militants had escaped on Aril 15, 2012 from Bannu Jail afteran attack by insurgents armed with guns, grenades and rockets.Dawn (Pakistan) and McClatchy

Bankrupt Detroit to seek federal bailout through Obamacare

Detroit, which filed for bankruptcy July 18, 2013, is pursuing a planto shift retirees from city-run health coverage to exchanges under theAffordable Care Act, or Obamacare. If implemented in full, this wouldessentially be a $5.7 billion federal bailout of Detroit, eliminatingthe amount it owes on retiree health care costs. Many other bankruptor near-bankrupt localities, such as Chicago, Sheboygan County, Wis.,and Stockton, Calif., are going to be watching this Detroit plancarefully, to see if they can get away with the same thing.
