As Conflict Escalates, Dictator Ilham Aliyev Needs to Be Stopped

While Syria burns, Gaza explodes and al Qaeda captures another Iraqi town, another full-blown conflict threatens to further destabilize the Middle East, this one between Armenia and Azerbaijan. For months now, Ilham Aliyev, one of the worst dictators alive, has been indiscriminately shelling the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh, a formerly Soviet Socialist Oblast located within Soviet Azeri territory populated by ethnic Armenians.

#BBCtrending: The president who threatened war on Twitter

The novelty of his approach was not lost on his audience, who offered a live commentary on Aliyev’s posts. “Shows how far Twitter has come as a diplomatic platform. Now even wars are declared here…” wrote one user. And of course, it left him open to being heckled in real time. “@presidentaz just try :) we will kill you and your soldiers,” said one, “Dream big, fail big,” said another, and “Go home Ilham, you’re drunk,” replied a third.

These attacks are more likely to come from the Azerbaijani side, which has rejected international initiatives to stabilize the ceasefire by removing snipers from the front-line. As the losing side in the conflict, the Azerbaijanis make it their business to challenge the status quo, make the other side nervous and remind the world of the conflict.
