January 28th marks the 18th anniversary of the formation of the armed forces of the Republic of Armenia. The history of Armenian army, however, is far longer: legend holds, that 4501 years ago the founding father of the Armenian people, Haik Nahapet, organized the first ever formation of the Armenian army and defeated their foe, Assyrian ruler Bel, thus gaining his independence and establishing the Armenian nation.
Armenians have fought with Copts, Alans (Albanians), Ketits, Assyrians, Babylonians, Medians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Palestinians, Egyptians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Mongols, Turks, Germans, Azerbaijani an Turks. Hell, Armenians have fought in most global wars since the times of Alexander the Great and Old Rome. No wonder our army is considered the best in South Caucasus. And I’m saying this with pride, because the moment I doubt it, I won’t be able to sleep in peace, given the continuous flow of empty threats from Azerbaijan.
Hail to our army! Let it always be victorious!
