One thing that can’t be denied about the post-election protests in Armenia is that the polarization seems to have no limits. The comments that people – on either side – leave on YouTube videos showing the clashes are extremely angry and irrational. People are cursing each other and calling the authorities “Turks” – further demonstrating the social revolution that Armenia needs.

I am not defending one or the other but while we call on the authorities not to use brutality we should also ask the protesters to stop violently cursing people and calling those they don’t like “Turks.” It doesn’t just show the level of intolerance among Armenians but to their neighbors as well.

FUCK… as I am writing this I am being told from a friend in Texas that she was just told that 6 people have died.  🙁 Don’t know what to say.
