Azerbaijan's President Aliyev Named Corruption's 'Person Of The Year'

There are 18 comments on the Weekday Magazine story from Jan 2, 2013, titled Azerbaijan's President Aliyev Named Corruption's 'Person Of The Year'. In it, Weekday Magazine reports that:

In 2012, corruption watchdog Transparency International reported that two-thirds of the world's countries may be considered "highly corrupt." It would seem tough to choose someone for the dubious honor of corruption's "person of the year." One investigative-journalism NGO has done just that.

I hope that Azery people finally will see who is their real enemy stilling from them what belongs to the entire nation, and why Aliev does his best to keep his people in hostile and Armenophobic condition.

I don't think many Azeris will be surprised by this piece of news. It will probably confirm what they had assumed all these years.
How can one support a government that indulges all its government officials and extended families to lavish life styles and investments while the rest of hard working people struggle to earn a descent living.
I have an idea, why not amuse them with the idea of a just war, that way they can see where all the money is going to, war preparation.
No one in the wold should rule a country because who their father was. One should earn that right, its called democracy and one can't have democracy until there is free press and information, which obviously is lacking in Azerbaijan.

My friend, most of the Germans loved Hitler when he was the Kantzler too, but he destroid Germany and German people. So does your president. If he continues ruling the way he does now, in couple of years Azerbaijan will be in the same list with North Korea, Kuba and Sudan.

I think that, they themselves are corrupt. because of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev does not give money, European banks and not lending to the U.S.. As the economy of Azerbaijan, are on the rise, a foundation set up by the banks, who provoke the Azeri system. Corruption is there, who calls others corrupt. Ilham Aliyev, has prevented, impoverishment, hunger and woe, which now suffers from corrupt Europe! Foreign banks operating in Spain, who are owed to someone, and also in Italy. The Spaniards do not really owe anyone but the banks are owed. who shared aksiatesse securities and cash. Since Azerbaijan is a well-functioning system of the country, the people who have the money to other organizations pill to be the best in their organization's leaders! at the expense of others who run and eat! Since Ilham Aliyev does not take a lot of credit is screaming and crying. Ilham Aliyev for his country does not want vaesumis system. Ilham Aliyev, success and strength among the successful future. because the old Estonian word says - who says it's self is another! Azerbaijan is a better model which has reached its technological infrastructure, the social and industrial production. and techniques developed for the newer information, as well as logistics, and, practical technology!

They're just brainwashed ignorant people. It's not their fault. In this respect Azerbaijanistan is very much like Turkey - you know, they only spread their "national" proganda nonsense through television, and censore anyone who disagrees with it.

Poor people.

I have an Azeri friend who has a business in Baku. I meet with him when he comes to Istanbul. Sine he has his business, he is scared to criticize Aliyev even in our private conversations. He fears that his views might somehow be heard in Baku and he might lose his business interests.

The fact is that many Azeris do not like Aliyev but they cannot dare to say it.

If I were Aliyev, I would give away power voluntarily. Noone can stick to power for ever. If he gives away power voluntarily, he will be remembered as a president who did some good and some bad for his country. Further, he will most likely keep his assets and he will continue to live in Azerbaijan in safety. But if he is toppled in a revolution, not only him but his entire family will suffer the consequences, possibly losing their assets and perhaps even their lives.

Aliyevs have run the country long enough. Ilham Aliyev better starts thinking about voluntarily giving away power for a peaceful and smooth transition. Azerbaijan needs no chaos so if he loves his country he manages the transition of power and does not let Azerbaijan fall into a vacuum and chaos.
