Like it or not, that's who these people were
i do not believe that it is a matter of liking it or not, but one of factual correctness. i told you that i found it unlikely that the people who rioted through the streets of baku were right off the train from artsakh.
here is why:1) obviously the dates are switched backwards..
2) if they just came from artsakh, how would they be able to find the homes and businesses of armenians in baku, or sumgait (cities they are obviously not even accustomed to, let alone at ease in) and distinguish the armenians from azeris in the streets???
3) im not sure how a mob of peasants could rampage throught a city running after armenians..
4) all this in consideration, i think a government list then would suddenly make more sense...
thats why i think that it would be more likely that those who committed the massacres were local azeris.
a list with the adresses of all people listed with the last name "ian" in a small city filled with "ov"s is not hard to compile and would most likely not take days...
anyways, im not saying that te azeri government was the mastermind behind the massacres, but rather did help them go through, if not supported them
