Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was surprised to find that a number of Hungarian media had more critical articles on the conflict that deviated from the Atlanticist narrative: essentially, they wrote there isa a Great Powers match, with the USA also active as provocateur, and Azeri oil as a factor. It seems their reason is one single historian specialising on the Causasus: she could give a coherent 'bigger picture' the journalists could grasp. There is hope.

On the other hand, to briefly state my view on what I see was discussed over several diaries on ET: I see an cynical ugly game played by two opposed imperialists on top of ugly games played by local potentates, and the West's hypocrisy is no saving grace.
