Armenia is one of the few remaining countries in the entire world that not
only doesn't have a US extradition treaty, but is actively hostile to the
development of one. Coupling it under some facetious "American Empire"

which particular international countries Vice Media has regional licensing
deals in is facetious to the point of extreme offense.
