Salami is undoubtedly a great food of choice for millions around the world. There are many regions famous for this lovely food & among them Azerbaijan is certainly not. But they nevertheless are mastering a Salami slicing of their own in the Caucasus.
Salami tactics from a strategic perspective is the way of achieving one’s goal bit by bit. One slice at a time. This method has been used globally by various powers to undermine their oppositions & achieve a total dominance of their spheres of interest.
This is exactly what is unfolding in the Karabakh region. As mentioned by the earlier Article “The Azeri Gambit” , the Azeri regime is slowly but gradually & steadily progressing with their long plan.
As predicted, first there was a small incursion into the Armenian held parts followed by gunfire , casualty reporting & the media circus. The Armenians were named the aggressor & the victim was none other than the provocateur himself – Azerbaijan. Then there was the strategic observation. Observing the reactions from concerned parties. Armenians, Russians, European Union, United Nations, United States & the international community in general. Based on the analysis of the reactions the Azeris decided to launch the unprovoked attack on an Armenian position.
The attack was brazen, unprovoked, captured in high resolution videos, released to the media by the Azeri defense establishments. There were deaths & injuries of Armenian servicemen.
Unleashing the attack is one thing but audacity of releasing it through official channels is something completely different. Why did the Azeris go into such levels of openly admitting to it. This is exactly where the Salami tactics would appear. There will be many more such attacks in time to come & Azeris will report it just as they did this one to give an impression that is the new normal of Karabakh. It is just another day of attack & the business goes as usual.
Now they are openly asking for “demilitarization of the Armenians in Karabakh. They are not concealing the final goal. They want to create completely vulnerable, defenseless, surrounded & traumatized citizens at the mercy of the Russian Peace Keeping force. The attacks will go in parallel to their daily demand of a demilitarized Artsakh. Finally they will create a narrative as “ until Artsakh army is disbanded & demilitarized their forces will be targeted. This will be the Elephant in the room. Russian media outlets reported this demand in a further sign of a doomed future.
The first attack will be used as a case study by the Azeris to observe the world reaction & to assess its future plans. This was carried out at one of the most chaotic times of modern history so the reactions were very watered down , mild & next to unimportant. There were a couple of American senators who spoke out against the attack & went further condemning it. There were calls for calm & restraint but was there a global outrage & total condemnation of the unprovoked, unjust attack on Armenians ? Did the EU impose a travel ban on the preparators or threatened sanctions on Azeris if they continue this path ? No. The news slipped away after 24 hours & despite efforts by the Armenian public to keep it a float was not fruited.
Azeris will keep killing & maiming the Armenians in Artsakh. Always a step short of an all out assault. So the reactions of the stakeholders will always be the same. Calls for calm & restrain & a set of isolated condemnations. There will be no need for heavy handed diplomacy or military actions against the Azeris since it’s one attack at a time. Azeris will come up with their own terms & conditions for a halt of the attacks. In exchange for a totally demilitarized Artsakh. This is where this game of chicken is heading towards. In exchange for total calmness of the fronts, the Armenians in Artsakh will be asked to give up their own defenses. Then there will be one final push where Azeris will finish off the Karabakh issue once & for all.
It is a fact that neither the European Union nor the Americans can help the Armenians in a sensible manner. Only the Russians can make a real call on this. They seem to be working with an understanding with the Azeris though. Are the Russians culpable in this ? Will the Russians throw the Armeinas under the bus ? Well not unless they get a sweet deal as sweet as this one and a strategic posturing that is really worth it. The Russians’ complicity with the Turkish administration is what is worth a proper observation. Russians could be lured into a much worth deal in Syria, Libya or even the Ukrainian conflict. A Turkish pullout of Syria & a demilitarized & subjugated Idlib will be worth for Rusiians in exchange for a demilitarized Artakash. It is always where the stakes are higher.
The question is whether or not the Armenians decide to ignore & live with such a dangerous reality that seems to be unfolding right in front of their eyes. Will they wake up now & start to do something about it is totally in the interest of that nation’s future survival. Otherwise it will be a day late and a Dollar short for the Armenians in this century.

I love Salami, I thought it was some minister’s name. Ha-ha! Just like CCP Salami slicing their way West. I don’t even know where the Chinese/Pakistani boarder is anymore! Thank God for salami, and bless it to me when I receive it. “For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving.”
Just like how Taliban is slicing Pakistani soldiers ?😅🤘😂😂😂🤣🤣
i am turk i hate Taliban they is like Zionist
Filth? I love pork salami. Delicious! Slicing boarders and stealing land is filthy.
One of the few articles here totally agree with. To be totally objective, Russia was also using the Salami tactic, taking a bite here and a bite there. Just like what Turkey is doing. Anyway this is about the Azeris, regardless which side you are (pro or anti West/Russia), it is very obvious and unethical what the Azeris are doing. Sadly I dont see any good outcome for the Armenians. The West is not willing to help them and Russia is not capable.
Why should Russia help Armenia, when Armenia still has the same anti Russian shabbas Goy collaborators in power working with the racist supremacist global Jewish, Judeo Nazi satanic slave empire dictatorship against Russia??
If Armenians had any brains they would overthrow their puppet owned by Jews dictators and put in power a pro Russian government and ask to become a province of Russia. Then all their problems would be instantly solved as Armenia and Artsakh.would become part of Russia .
I think Putin did a good job saving Assad, who was about to fall. He showed the world that if you are an ally of Russia, they will come to your rescue. But than please explain me why Putin allows Turkey to bomb the same ally and take huge parts of Syria? I think this makes Russia either unreliable or incapable of helping their ally.
Greece Armenia and the Kurds should work together against there common enemy the Ottomans.
Wishful thinking but not only do none of them share a common border, Kurds and Armenians are basically landlocked and isolated. Greece has acces to the sea and therefore can get direct support from outside. Also, Greece, unlike Turkey, acts according to international law and will only act out of self defense.
Azerbaijan and Israel – brothers in arms. We will give them what they need to carve up Armenia. After that comes Iran. We don’t play.
Get back in your oven, jew.
Still eager to steal other people’s lands, are we?
Can we please cut the line and come ahead of Armenia? Please?
Come on Garga, you and I know the reality well, the time for games is over, we are making moves all around you whilst you sit on your backsides issuing warnings. We are calling the bluff, blowing terror hard. We are never going to tolerate terror. We will neutralise your terror, and if it be more land for the promised ones, then so be it. Our brothers in Ukraine and Azerbaijan will get all they need, whilst your ministers issue words 🦾🇮🇱
What the hell? Are you giving “Italian Salute” to your own flag? Not cool bro, Even we don’t insult it that much…
You don’t want to be friends, fine, I can take a hint. Not inviting (by not giving an address or making an appointment somewhere) was enough, you really didn’t need to go out of your way and threaten to steal my house too!
No offence to you, personally, but we’ll be flying drones again over Iran whilst your ministers beg for JCPOA renewal. Soon you’ll see many more fires burn. Or “accidents” as your government calls them. We bring the pain, until promised land is free.
Get ready iran will attack Israel and you will run into the ocean
Iron zion Keep on dreaming
Iran zion One thing I confirm Azerbaijan and Baku is INFESTED WITH zionist from Occupied Palestine like in Dubai with anglos who control oil sector completely
Yeah what are you going to do about it. All my dreams are coming true. Soon you’ll see.
Russia is such a weak bitch. You’ll see more and more this reality my friends. I never thought I would turn so anti-Russian since it is a country with a large number of Jewish brothers, but their actions in Ukraine have changed the reality. They are terrorists but also weak. We will carve them up, one kosher salami slice at a time.
Please spare me! I ll behave 😿
7% of the Russian army is fighting in Ukraine. The number of their armored vehicles alone is 33,000, of which 22,000 are tanks. You believe what you want.
I think it is more realistic to assume that the actual Russia army is much smaller then the army on paper. The proof is on the front.
Go gas yourself kike
You Zionuts think you’re so clever, but don’t worry you will be repaid for your misdeeds in full. God is just.
Except this time Aliyev regime targeted the Arnenia, not Qarabaq (Goris, Jermuk, Sotk and even NovoIvanovka are all inside Armenia proper or in case of the last, it’s in the tiny enclave of Armenia inside Baku regime territory). Believe me, the target is not Qarabaq but connecting Baku to Turkey directly. Although I agree that they are testing the waters.
The statement of our MFA this time was a little bit different: Instead of saying that Iran won’t accept any changes to our border with Armenia, the spokesman said Iran won’t accept any changes in the borders between Armenia and [Baku regime]. Let’s hope Iran backs this statement with a punch.
We do our part but a lot also depends on Armenians. Just ask Syrians/Iraqis what happens when you ask for help from us.
Indeed, I am of the impression that Iran is the key to Armenia surviving the onslaught from Azeri,Israeli, Turk , Paki and sunni jihaidst… Putin has a disturbing connection to chabad and has failed to act to punish both turkey and azeri when they have shot down his planes… I suspect he has a large personal percentage cut of oil profits or worse… he is a crypto. but Pashynian the idiot traitorous globohomo soros plant is not approaching Iran properly to get the help…he also shuts out the diaspora,Greece and India… all natural allies…since it’s founding the country has been saturated in post soviet corruption the shit legacy of godless communism, they traded corrupt killer oligarchs for an incompetent corrupt traitorous fool. The turk is good at one thing…killing and destruction…. Europe needs the hydrocarbons and turns a blind eye to the laundromat..I tend to worry about what the turks will attempt while the world is distracted with building “Big Israel”
I will find you and put you to sleep 🦾🇮🇱
Colonel Dolma Putin and Russians are MORE zionist THEN zionist in OCCUPIED PALESTINE SEE HOW HE GIVES GREEN LIGHT TO zionist to Attack Syria etc
Russians in Ukraine are being genocided and I’m meant to care about these goat fuckers and their conflicts?
I F you with a bullet. Are you American? In that case thank you for your donation.
I wonder who’s the dominant one in bed Erdogan or Aliyev? Or do they take turns? A couple homosexual Turkish dogs!
ElchrsteroAmerica Why you JEALOUS? Because they rejected you
Is salami TACTIC NOT used by zionist in the conquest of Occupied Palestine It seems you are JEALOUS OF AZERBAIJAN COPYING IT IF IT GOOD FOR GOOSE WHY IS IT BAD GANDER? ARMENIA IS UNLIKELY TO SURVIVE FOR LONG AS THEIR BEST AND BRIGHTEST HAVE LEFT FOR GREENER PARTS OF THE WORLD IN THE WEST AZERBAIJAN AND TURKEY WILL ACHIEVE TO STRATEGICAL GOAL OF COMPLETION OF LAND CORRIDOR BETWEEN THEM EITHER ARMENIA JOINS THEM OR DESTROYS ITSELF UNCLE SAM NOR RUSSIA NOR zionist NOR ANYONE WILL INTERVENE
We are going to see that our bases are within striking distance of Iran. Then we will show you what gifts closeness brings. Armenians will be sent to their maker, followed by Iranians, because throughout history they have opposed the chosen people’s right to the promised land. No expenses spared. Watch and learn 🦾🇮🇱
Zelensky fights the bulge of the salami and anus in underwear of the men. Is victorious over the salami in buttocks and 5x world championships king.
This is when, and why, the Armen go to war. Azeris need to face facts. Oh yeah, anything that messes with Turks is a bonus.
Salami is what Turkey tried to do to Greece…Boomerang is what Turkey recieved from Greece! xD
Greece has many cards. First, they are part of the EU and NATO, that alone is good reason not to attack Greece. Second, Greece has the backing of France. Thereby they have the air and sea superiority. Even if Turkey wanted, they couldn’t. The losses would not outway the gains. They are evil but not stupid.
I hope Greece gives them Turks a bloody nose, they need it.
Greece can’t interfere because we say so. Stay in your corner and sulk.
Ain’t that the truth lmao. Seems like Greece is on the wrong side. Then again Armenia chose “the other side” and look where it got them left all alone surrounded by enemies without a friend in the world.
The Kremlin acts like everything is a diplomatic game. The sooner they realize other people aren’t playing games is the day Russia will be much better off.
Exactly I see them trying to coax the Turks into there corner but apparently don’t remember the Turks are more dangerous as friends then they ever could be as enemies. Russia and US will be so focused on each other they will allow the Ottomans to rise again. Shameful like the billions of wasted american dollars on Ukraine, who’s will just use our weapons against us in 5-10 years. The Kurds and Armenians would have been a much more profitable investment if you ask me.
