Stuck behind an oil burner.

We probably have all gone through this experience. You are stuck in traffic behind an 80's Toyota Corolla or 70's Ford F-150. About 99% of the time these cars are oil burners. They foul up the air you breathe. You stop the A/C but the bad air is already around you. You open the windows and the stink and pollution gets worse. The only solution is to get the hell out of there - as far away from the oil burner junk as possible.

It's the same thing when it comes to the current administration in Armenia. The whole nation is stuck behind an oil burner. Whatever you do, you can't get rid of the stink and pollution.

Serj Sargsian yesterday addressed the avazaka-'parliament'. He talked about starting to build a nuclear power station in a couple of months, building a railway to Iran, and other grandiose fantasies. What he forgot to mention were the most important issues facing the country. But since he is the embodiment and the root cause of these issues, his amnesia is not surprising at all.

Junk belongs in the junkyard, not ahead of you.
