  • Myth Of Commandos And Generals


    Attacks on General Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan a.k.a. Commandos, continue
    since he has dwelt on some people and facts of the Karabakh war.

    "Russian generals" and "elite" of veterans speak against him who have
    held high-ranking positions in government agencies.

    When speaking about him they say he is none of a commando, they created
    a myth out of him and sent him to the front line. In fact, now they
    are trying to bust the myth they created like Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan
    was trying to bust myths of the war.

    Myths are good if they are not too many. In Armenia, however, myths
    have been too many since times memorable. Allegations on Commandos
    make one think that the military leadership of Armenia is busy creating
    myths. Myths and generals.

    The Karabakh war was marked by a tough clash of myths and reality.

    While Armenia was creating myths and sending them down to the front
    line, Karabakh did not have time for that and often had to fight both
    Azerbaijanis and myths. The second was more difficult because it was
    necessary to find the right "balance" and prevent losses. It was hard
    in the first stage of the war, which resulted in innumerable losses.

    Later the "balance" was found. Conditions were created for myths to
    make sure they remain within their limits and their "honorary" places.

    The opposite extremity is in Karabakh. People in Karabakh do not
    recognize popularity and myths. Hence, discussions on the war make
    an impression that there were no "generals" in Karabakh or they
    were there in the capacity of side watchers. There were generals,
    and what generals, they simply did not suit the traditional Armenian
    "mythology". They understood the subtleties of war, at the same time
    paying homage to the "Russian generals", including Commandos, whose
    war plans caused a sneer.

    Besides, there were a lot of devotees in Armenia and Karabakh whose
    names are not known widely. Who remembers Armen of Togh, Davit of
    Yerevan, Kuchur Yura, Norik, tens and hundreds of other young men? Who
    remembers the artillerist who overcame psychological and all kinds of
    other obstacles and shot the first at the tanks with Russian personnel
    achieving a breakthrough in the battlefield?

    The devotees usually do not speak about war. The people who were
    busy with mythology out of different urges and motivations, who
    had problems with war and for whom the right to war was the key to
    solution of their personal problems speak about war.
