Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

      I don't know how or why we allowed them to fortify that position. Nevertheless, interesting they need a printed out cheat sheet to figure out what our equipment looks like. Rookies on the front line.

      But there is nothing that cannot be taken.
      If we needed to take it, simply flank it and go around. Azeris are never known to put Donetsk airport type resistance. Az soon as they see the danger of being surrounded, they flee as fast as they can. Commanders first.
      But soon or later we have to put and end to clown charade they are performing on Lele Tepe.

        Those fortifications are useless when thermobaric weapons are used.

                If this news is correct, then this is the way to derail azeri plans because,
                a) Their infiltration could have been a coverup and attention diverter from a larger and main plan on another section.
                B) As April nears, Azeris will try to create a political/military situation in response to
                genocide commemorations. Turk's mentality plays role here.
                But as we say, "grandpa does not eat pilaf every day", our army can turn tables around.
                Instead of carying their plans, Azeris may end up having to go to damage control and trying to stop Armenian actions.
                Our Diplomatic core should go to overdrive and government dig into it's positions and harden them.
                Unless Azeris will not abide by Vienna agreements the events may not go to their favor.

                  Richard Giragosian's take:

                  Escalating Risk of Renewed Hostilities over Nagorno-Karabakh
                  A recent round of serious fighting broke out on late Friday night into early Saturday morning, 24-25 February, as Azerbaijani military reconnaissance units launched a limited operation targeting the south-eastern and eastern sections of the heavily militarized “line of contact.” The Azerbaijani operation was more than the usual probe defensive positions, but involved a targeted mission to conduct more in-depth reconnaissance after overcoming a small minefield. The operation was fairly quickly discovered, however, and resulted in at least five Azerbaijani casualties before being fully repulsed in a more serious counter-offensive alter on Saturday.
                  The bodies of the Azerbaijani fatalities, which include two officers, remain unreachable in the “neutral zone” between the two sides. Officials of the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry confirmed the overnight clashes, but insisted that they were started by the Karabakh side. It also admitted casualties, without specifying a number, and said the Karabakh forces had launched an unsuccessful offensive for the purpose of “improving their positions.”
                  Azerbaijan’s Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov and army chief of staff, General Nejmeddin Sadiqov, visited the demarcation line around Karabakh just two days before the latest escalation. News reports said they instructed Azerbaijani frontline troops to take “tougher and more resolute measures” in response to what they called growing Armenian “provocations.”
                  Such violations have steadily intensified in recent weeks after several months of relative calm that followed four-day hostilities around Karabakh in April 2016. The two sides have accused each other of using mortars and rocket-propelled grenades on a virtually daily basis.
                  Analysis & Implications
                  As the risk of renewed hostilities over Karabakh is clearly escalating, a repeat offensive by Azerbaijani forces within the coming two months is ever more likely. Similar to the April 2016 offensive, the temptation for Azerbaijan to seek a repeat military success, aimed at seizing and securing territory, combined with the effective distraction from Azerbaijan's domestic economic problems, suggest a dangerous and destabilizing fresh round of fighting.
                  However, there are two distinctly different factors that will limit the potential gains from any renewed offensive by Azerbaijan- the element of surprise is no longer an advantage, and second, the defending Armenian and Karabakh sides are better equipped to repulse any attack.
                  Therefore, the next round of fighting may be more deadly, as the Azerbaijani offensive will quickly stall, becoming more of a drawn out battle of attrition that may trigger the deployment and use of more deadly offensive weapon systems, including artillery, multiple launch missile launchers and (rotary wing) air power.
                  Sadly, as diplomacy remains deadlocked, there is no real deterrence to such a scenario.
                  As an independent think tank based in Yerevan, Armenia, the Regional Studies Center (RSC), regularly monitors the military security situation related to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

                    This means they planned a bigger operation than what did happen yet, their cyber army was ready ..

                    Their Facebook page is going strong. The Azeris are going nuts over there. Razminfo has translated much into Azeri and Russian- most Azeris still don't believe it happened....sheep.

                      That cheat sheet they printed out actually shows how they copy something without really knowing why and how they work.
                      The cheat sheets were used in WWII navies to help gunners identify and differentiate fast moving enemy aircraft from friendly, so they would not shoot their own flying overhead, or think approaching enemy is a friendly and get bombed.
                      What is even more funny is the fact those tanks, bmp's or helicopters they have on their cheat sheets for Armenian are exactly the same as what they have.
                      So actually this sheets can make an Azeri (being stupid as they are) think that their own tank on distance is Armenian and shoot.
