  • Everyone wants to become president or PM, but no one wants to do something useful for their people. Why most dashnak spyurqahays want to become presidents and PMs of Armenia? but no one wants to serve in our army? For over 25 years, most Armenian citizens have served in the Armenian and Artsakh army.

    If you are so hayrenaser, let young Armenian men from 18 to 30 years old start families, and you serve in our army.

  • It is the same in all the Diaspora. Here in Lebanon it is the same. All those who stayed hidden during the civil war abroad are looking for a political position when things get better.

  • Daron Acemoglu, Elizabeth and James Killian Professor of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Author of Why Nations Fail: Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty:

    Some say that Armenia is doomed to fail economically because of its geography or location in the world. But like so many other countries around the world and throughout history, its failure is due to corruption, unscrupulous politicians and weak institutions. It’s not lack of opportunities but squandered opportunities that are at the root of Armenia’s ills, and it can make progress only by confronting this fact and holding accountable those responsible for the failures. This wonderful report is a first step.

  • There is no more corruption in Armenia than in any other country in the region. There is even less. I am sure. Do yu think Azerbaijan, Turkey, Iran are less corrupt?

  • Iran (I mean the Islmaic regime in Iran) is THE MOST CORRUPT country in the world.I don’t know Armenia very well, but compared to Iran it must be Switzerland.

  • The World is corrupt and the center of gravity of this corruption is the Depp State ([DS}) who rus the USA. [DS} is everywhere, in America, in Europe, in M-East. [DS} places the most corrupt people who will obey them without scruples. This is the New World Order.

  • My country, Lebanon, has long endured institutionalized corruption. Corruption in Lebanon exists in all its forms including bribery, nepotism, favoritism, patronage, embezzlement, kick-backs, and vote-buying.Petty corruption is widespread. CPI gives Lebanon a rank of 137 out of the 180 nations.
