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.

    What if the answer is in your question. If truly there was no human loses.
    All I know they should retaliate by 10 fold.

      I'm afraid if we don't respond in kind, this is going to become a new point of attrition. After years of killing off soldiers one by one, they've seen no loss in our resolve or position. You can "hide" these weapons, but the only safe place is directly behind a mountain where it won't do much good.

      So that leaves destroying our equipment one by one with guided missiles (child's play, these aren't Tomahawks but you don't need that level of sophistication), or worse, going after batches of troops congregated in buildings. They'll just ratchet it up to see what actually provokes a response, then they'll use what will look like our disproportionate response to justify land force attacks. Simple games and I'm surprised we haven't seen these yet. We're not interested in gaining or holding more territory, so anything that baits us out of our defensive posture is good games for the Azeris.

      I don't know what the answer to this is, but doing nothing, or just destroying one of their pieces of equipment, is not enough. I think you have to see an offensive to "recapture" Lala Tepe or similar where they realize there is a very high political (embarrassment) price to pay for these games.

        ^ Any sort of offensive will trigger a full scale war.. they are nearing their peak as a country economically, militarilly..etc. If we can minimize our losses for a few more years it will be enough to force them to officially recognize artsakh.

            And sacrifice people's lives until they collapse? Even if they lose all their oil and are buried in a mountain of debt, these attacks are not going to stop. Especially if Armenia's leaders really have no idea how to stage an offensive. Maybe all the money they've been stealing from the MoD is coming to light?

              Our report says Azeris used a guided rocket.

              Maybe the azeris lured it out by flying drones or helis who knows

                Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
                Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
                Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

                  The answer is as I have said for years.....pre-empt for defense meaning taking out immanent threats, not a major offensive, not an eye for an eye.

                  In this case they have taken out a defensive target no threat to them directly. there should be a political response first, even raising it to intetnational level, we are trying to understand are they getting ready to invade or was it just a target of oprrtunity.

                  Eitherway the leadership must let all countries involved in the peace process know that we will take any measure to securr the safety and liberty of Artsakh including as of now removing any conceivable threats or Azeri plans for future close to the contact lines as we see fit. We will not be responsible for Azeri losses and do best we can to minimize them.

                    Taking out an OSA is an embarrassment. Who ever ordered it to be there should be punished severely. This is the most idiotic move. No professional would ever allow such a weapon get so close to enemy territory.
