Why Azerbaijan is like Jennifer Hudson

  Seeing these kids living in poverty in refugee camps around Baku reminds me a little bit of Jennifer Hudson. You know, the singer who used to be quite chubby and is now thin as a rake? Hudson has a lot of fame and wealth but still can't eat as she likes. How painful is that!?
   Azerbaijan, similarly, has developed some oil and gas wealth but still has to keep its memory sharp concerning the loss of land it suffered to Armenia.
   When I visited these refugee camps I felt bad not only for the poor kids but also for the fact that they are performing a much-needed duty to the state, showing the world its suffering. So these poster children of the rape of Azerbaijan is a little bit like Jennifer Hudson, all that success but still forced to suffer.
