The Republic Of Armenia Could Get It’s Learner’s Permit

Note: This obviously only applies to the USA because if you live in Armenia, you can get your permit at the age of 15, but that is besides the point.

On this day in Armenian History 1991, the Republic of Armenia declared it’s freedom from the (former) Soviet Union to be apart of the New Independent States which later became the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States). Along with Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan, they freed themselves from the control of the Soviet Union and communism.

In Armenia’s first years as a sovereign state, they had to deal with many problems that prevented them from thriving as a country. An earthquake that killed ten’s of thousands of people and the new President banning the Armenian Revolutionary Federation. Once Robert Kocharian became President in 1998, the country started to turn around and is doing very well for a *moderately developed country*.

Happy Independence Day Armenia!!!

    Isn’t Armenia a second world country? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:World_map_worlds_first_second_third.gif The term thrid world comes from a Cold War-era classification of countries based on their allegiances, first world is US, second world Soviet Union, third world would be all the underdeveloped countries no one included in the fight…
