Upside down...

So, what should a government do when the human rights defender of that same government reports human rights abuses?

Logic says that the government should investigate these abuses and eliminate them and their cause. But not in Armenia. In their twisted banditocracy logic, the Armenian government is going to grill the human rights defender (the ombudsman from now on) tomorrow because the ombudsman dared to point out the misdeeds of the regime. And it's not like this report was an overly critical; it was quite mild compared to the murder of their own citizens by the government.

But fortunately then end of this regime is not very far. We have a situation where the ones on the top cannot perform and the ones at the bottom do not want it (to site Lenin and his description of why regimes go down).
