Like North Korea's, Azerbaijan's warmongering should not be
ignored since a new war in the South Caucasus could also turn quite
catastrophic. Taking into consideration the arms build-up launched by
Azerbaijan and its continuing weapons accumulation, a new war could
devastate a whole region and cause dire humanitarian consequences
for all sides of the conflict, says a Tuesday article in Foreign
Policy Journal.

"The irresponsible and unpredictable North Korean totalitarian regime
continuously uses escalating rhetoric as a political instrument
blackmailing the world. The aggressive rhetoric and threats of new
war have become more pronounced since the young dictator of North
Korea, Kim Jong Un, came to power after the death of his father in
2012. At the other side of Asia, in Azerbaijan, another dictator
who also inherited power from his father, Ilham Aliev, continuously
uses bellicose rhetoric and threatening to restart a war against its
neighboring Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh. Aliyev and his regime are
known as one of the most corrupted in the world. Fueled by revenues
from oil production, Aliyev and family have stashed their cash in
the offshore zones," says the article.
