Today, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick urged the US take action against “Turkey & Azerbaijan for their unprovoked and deadly attacks on Armenians,” Belichick said, reports CBC Boston.
Today, New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick in a press conference was asked about a memo from acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller invoking the coach’s “Do Your Job” slogan. Miller had added to military personnel, “We are a team, and that should be our mindset.”
“Well, I really appreciate the kind words from Secretary Miller,” Belichick said. “When you consider the type of leadership that he’s shown throughout his career serving our country, it really means a lot. I’m flattered by the reference that he made.”
Belichick then used that opportunity to speak out in favor of the United States taking action against Turkey for supporting Azerbaijan’s attacks on Armenians.
“I’ll just say, while we’re on the subject, I read his point about combating traditional threats. And I couldn’t help but think and hope that we’ve seen from other countries around the world, and I hope that our country will take action against Turkey and Azerbaijan for their unprovoked and deadly attacks on Armenians,” Belichick said.
“We’ve seen that when a humanitarian crisis and things like that, like ethnic cleaning, go unpunished, that they just continue to happen. I hope that we can put a stop to that,” the coach added.
