Armenia: Insult to Dignity

Blogrel reports that officials in Armenia are incensed at a performance by a British dance artist who wrapped his nude body with the Armenian flag and danced on it. Officials are calling it an insult to Armenian national dignity and suggesting that the performance was criminal. Harmick, the author of the post, points out that Armenian officials should be far more worried with many other more ubiquitous insults to Armenian dignity.

    Yes the officials should be ashamed of their own corruption. That’s what is an insult to Armenian national dignity. At the rate they are stealing the country there won’t be anything left to insult.
