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.

              Warlick declares war on Armenia

              Fri 21 July 2017 15:33 GMT | 11:33 Local Time



              One of the most experienced American diplomats, James Warlick, is negotiating with the US authorities about the possibility of judicial proceedings on the financing of the separatist "Nagorno-Karabakh Republic" by such Armenian organizations as the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) and the Armenian Assembly of America (AAA), Oxu.Az reports citing the Armenian portal Depiararat.
              Both organizations are lobbying, have close ties in the American establishment, as well as an extensive network of branches both inside the country and beyond, there are serious financial and information resources at their disposal. ANKA is positioned as the second most influential among all ethno-lobbying organizations in the US, and the AAA is the second most important and influential Armenian organization in the United States.
              Successful results of ANCA and AAA activities include the effective lobbying of direct financial support for the separatists of Nagorno-Karabakh from the state budget of the United States and the absence of such support from the Republic of Azerbaijan.
              The trial initiated by James Worlik is legally justified in terms of extending US jurisdiction to the activities of the two organizations, since the law of the United States is just the personal law of ANCA and AAA.
              The US financial assistance to Karabakh separatists, according to James Warlick and a number of his colleagues-diplomats, encourages Armenian separatists in the region and hinders the negotiation process to resolve the conflict. In addition, the prospective trial has good prospects to become indicative for all US diaspora organizations and fits into the logic of President Donald Trump's pre-election pledge to concentrate primarily on domestic US problems and reduce activity in some external directions. In this regard, most recently, the American journal "Foreign Policy" reported on the plans of the Agency for International Development USAID to reduce funding for its activities.
              "Regarding the story of the James Worlick initiative, the support provided by ANCA to Trump's opponent in the struggle for Hillary Clinton's presidential chair can be used as a motive for the current administration to approve the trials against the mentioned Armenian organizations. For years, ANCA and the AAA enjoyed the sympathy of the power elite of the United States, including lobbying for financial support for Nagorno-Karabakh, and suddenly there are suspicions about the illegality of their activities," the Armenian portal notes with bewilderment.
              According to the independent journalist O. Malik, the source in the State Department confirms the initiative of James Warlick is under consideration of the relevant US departments, and that it has even obtained preliminary approval from the Deputy State Secretary John Heffern.

                I just googled James Warlick and it seems like he no longer is on the OSCE group and now works for a Russian law firm. So, either he is doing this as a partner of a Russian law firm, which means that Russia is doing this, OR, this story is entirely fabricated and makes no sense.

                      To be honest we seem a bit undereqquiped in standard infantry gear when compared to other armies, it's understandable why considering our limited budget and other things being higher priority, but can someone explain what exactly the standard intrantry kit is, like what any soldier serving on the frontline will have without exception? From what I've seen it seems like it basically consists of a vest and helmet, standard Ak-74 with no extra modifications or additional sights, and a couple extra mags of ammo. Then not everyone seems to have a walkie talkie, I think I've heard it's something like 2 radios per 10 soldiers. Then gloves, optics, and goggles seem to be reserved mostly for special forces. Does anyone know how widespread gloves, optics, and goggles are within standard infantry and whether they are becoming more common?
