Is history repeating itself?

As I have been following the events that have been going on in the NagornoKarabakh, I noticed a similarity between those events and the chain of events that lead to the conquest of Constantinople by Mehmet the 2nd (also known as Mehmet the conqueror) in 1453. It is interesting to me that president Ilham Aliev even bears a resemblance to the conquerer.

Those days the Christian world did not come to the Byzantine’s rescue. As a result of their betrayal, the weakend Byzantine had to to fend for itself all alone. Not a match for the might of the Ottoman army, the Byzantine fell to the Ottomans. Isn’t that what is happening to ethnic Armenians in NagornoKarabakh (Artsakh) these days?
