ARMENIA / AZERBAIJAN : Caucasus War Scenario Is Ugly.


      A war between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the mountainous enclave of Nagotno-Karabakh in the 1990's claimed about 30,000 people.
      Both nations now have more powerful weapons...and Azeri pipelines also send critical oil and gas to Europe that could be threatened.
     Firefights have heated-up in the enclave...and a recently extradited Azeri killer...given a hero's welcome in Baku...and freed from serving 22 years in an Hungarian prison for the brutal murder of an Armenian soldier...has greatly upset Armenians.
    The West fears that a new serious clash in the Caucasus...could quickly spread.
