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.

    • Commenting on both why Azeris have Su-25s in Azerbaijan and importing more expensive gas from Iran.

      It is important to note how petty Russia can be, and there is really no assurance that they will help Armenia in a landwar with Azerbaijan, even if Azeris attacked Armenia proper. There is no evidence that the CSTO will come to Armenia's help with troops.

      I think having the ability to important Iranian gas is a good hedge should the border with Georgia close. It is also important for Armenia to have access and the best possible relations with Iran. We shouldn't torpedo every effort to work with Iran just because Russia is paranoid.

        good luck with that. our so called "politicians" are so in bed with Russia, they don't even fathom the idea of flirting with anyone else. Best Armenia can do is ride this temporary calm in the region, and hope something changes to put azeris at the disadvantage.

          It really is disappointing to see and one wonders what could possibly be wrong with having cordial relations with Iran and the EU and China and India. I think for all its military strength and tough talk, when it comes down to it, Russia is unbelievably insecure with its standing in the world and deeply paranoid.

          Armenia should regardless push for FTA with as many countries we possibly can. Every day the Azeris pump out more nonsensical news and it is really annoying to hear them.

                    «Իրավունք»

                    09:43, 25.08.2017

                    «Իրավունք» թերթը գրում է. ««Սոչիում կայացած ՀՀ եւ ՌԴ նախագահների հանդիպման հենց նախօրեին Բաքուն որոշեց իր ռազմաօդային ուժերի զորակազմում գտնվող Սու-25 կործանիչներն օդ բարձրացնել եւ թռիչքներ իրականացնել Նախիջեւանի ինքնավար հանրապետության երկնքում: Այս ամենը պատահականությո՞ւն էր, թե դրանից պետք է որոշակի հետեւություններ անել, «Իրավունքը» պարզեց ադրբեջանագետ Աշոտ Մովսիսյանից:

                    Վերջին մի քանի տաxրում Ադրբեջանի իշxխանությունը բավաxկանին լուրջ ջանքեր է գորxծադրում Նախիջեւանի ռազxմական պոտենցիալը ավելացxնելու ուղղությամբ: Օգտվելով Նախիջեւանի դիրքից՝ Բաքուն այն քարոզչական տիրույթում օգտագործում է որպես իսկանդերներին համարժեք միxջոց: Բացի այդ, ՀՀ-ՌԴ միացյալ զորախումբը լուրջ անհանգսxտություն է առաջացրել թե՛ ադրբեջանաxկան հասարակության, թե՛ իշխանության մոտ: Կարծում եմ՝ նրանք տեղյակ են, թե որտեղ է տեղակայված այդ զորախումբը...

                    Մասնավորապես՝ ի՞նչ խնդիր էր փորxձում լուծել Ադրբեջանը՝ մարտական թռիչքxներ իրականացնելով Նախիջեւանից:

                    Ցանկացած տեսակի զորավարժուxթյան լուսաբանում քարոզչաxկան նպատակ է հետապնդում, այս անգամ սա կարելի էր բնութագրել որպես ուժի ցուxցադրում: Եվ իհարկե, զորաxվարժությունների, վարժանքxների ամենակարեւոր նպատաxկը զորքի մարտունակության աստիճանի բարձրացումն է: Ադրբեջանը ամեն կերպ փորxձելու է պարբերաբար հիշեցxնել հայ հասարակությանը, որ Նախիջեւանի դիրքը թույլատxրում է «ռմբակոծել ու հրետակոծել Երեւաxնը»: Բաքուն նման միջոցների կդիմի անxգամ այն ժամանակ, երբ առաջնագծում եւ սահմանում հարաբերական հանգիստ է: Մեր կողմից որպես հետեւություն պետք է լինի հակաքայլեր ձեռնարկելը՝ թե ռազxմական, թե քարոզչական տիրույթում»:

                    • The US has started ‘its own game’ within the Minsk Group, Russian expert says.

                      16:39, 24 Aug 2017






                      “The US fears Russia and France could offer their own interim agreement to the parties of the Karabakh conflict,” says Stanislav Tarasov, head of the Middle East-Caucasus think-tank.
                      The expert says he has an impression the US has started ‘its own game’ within the Minsk Group.
                      The comments come in the wake of statements by interim Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group Richard Hoagland publicized the six points of settlement of the Karabakh conflict.
                      “They had been sticking to agreed principles until now. Because of some reasons we still don’t know about the US is changing its policy,” Tarasov said in an interview with Public Radio of Armenia.
                      According to him, “they probably fear that Moscow could reach agreement with Yerevan, Baku and Stepanakert and find some settlement to the Karabakh conflict.”
                      “There is an opinion among the analytical circles in Moscow that Nagorno Karabakh could be transferred to the CIS or EEU zone, but not as part of either Armenia or Azerbaijan. Instead a special control zone will be introduced for 50 years,” he said.
                      According to the expert, the scenario will help ensure that Armenia and Azerbaijan have no complexes of having lost their ground in the conflict.
                      “Americans fear that they can be fully ousted from the region, that’s why they’re trying to play some role through Armenia or Azerbaijan, Let’s see how events develop,” he said.
                      Stanislav Tarasov considers an interim settlement will not bring peace to the region.
