The mirage is that the pendulum swings and some people get squished under it. While Oskanian acted in bad faith in 2008, as far as karma goes, his is not the dirtiest of the current politicians. There are others, especially his boss, who are responsible for the spilled blood of our compatriots on the streets of Yerevan. I remain cynical of the whole "thaw in the Armenian political scene" propaganda line. Nothing has changed and I think this is an attempt by the regime to rehabilitate Oskanian and build a martyr out of him. He would then look like a legitimate opposition candidate for presidency while being an empty suit that loses to Serj.
