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.

      Yes sir...
      Exept catholic Ireland, the rest of Europe shows population growth or at least stability only places where there are Muslims.
      I guess, Europe is going thru what we did 800-500 years ago (similar), but it will be faster this time because Christian population has a very low birth rate. Europeans are busy enjoying sexual freedoms and equalities. Family concept is dying there faster than anywhere else.
      Funny that polygamous and incestfull Muslim religion is going to finally be the replacer of human populations.
      There is no more Middle East, Anatolia and Byzantine Christianity bearing the bloody Muslim advance and shielding Europe to have the renaissance and industrial revolution type progress, or any secure future.
      Europeans put the gun of liberalism on their temples and don't realize that they also have allready pulled the trigger. There is no going back. It is out of controll.
      Just like liberalism, communism and fascism were guns put on temples of bearing nations. But at least those did not replace populations, did not awaken the monster that is Born in 5th century and only growing.

      P.S. If you keep your female population at the status of house cattle, like Muslim society does, the only thing left for them to do is to squirt babies. Lots of them.

        I have the impression something nasty is going to happen in the next 48 hours on the Korean peninsula.
        Pillsbury doughboy is going to defy all warning and do his nuclear test. In response the US will most likely strike with Tomahawk missile.
        China and Russia will intervene for mediation ... Might be too late.

          Hama offensive: An indication of the Syrian opposition’s decline
          By Suliman Mulhem - 03/04/2017

          Damascus, Syria – (9:38 P.M.) Militants from a range of Islamist groups, including the newly-formed Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) group, and the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) launched a wide-scale offensive on the 21st of March in the Hama countryside. Although the offensive did initially yield significant territorial gains, pro-government have managed to retake ground throughout the offensive, and maintain composure.

          For example, forces from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) successfully liberated the village of Kawkab. Since the deployment of units from the 5th Corps and Tiger Forces to Hama, opposition militants have struggled to advance, and their offensive has lost much of its momentum.

          It seems that they aimed to capture areas lost to the Syrian Army in 2016, and potentially seize the provincial capital, Hama city. According to a senior official in the Russian military, more than 10,000 terrorists have been involved in the recent offensive.

          “A NUMBER OF MILITANT FORMATIONS ATTEMPTED TO SEIZE THE CITY OF HAMA SINCE MARCH 21. IN THE AREA UNDER OPPOSITION CONTROL A GROUP WAS FORMED NUMBERING MORE THAN 10,000, WITH THE FOUNDATION OF JABHAT AL-NUSRA AND BANDIT FORMATIONS THAT JOINED THEM,” SERGEI RUDSKOY, THE CHIEF OF THE RUSSIAN GENERAL STAFF MAIN OPERATIONAL DIRECTORATE SAID.


          Although fighting in the province is ongoing, with neither side possessing a definitive edge, it is abundantly clear that anti-government, Islamist militants have lost their ability to launch large-scale, successful offensives against areas under the sanctuary of the Syrian government, as they did in the 2015 Idlib offensive.

          A key difference between the two offensives is the presence of warplanes & attack helicopters from the Russian Air Force (RUAF.) This has certainly helped the SAA keep the militants at bay; the Russian Air Force (RUAF) & Syrian Arab Air Force (SYAAF) destroyed terrorist reinforcements in Hama, preventing pro-government forces from being overwhelmed.

          On a separate note, over the past year or so, there has been regular in-fighting between Islamist groups in Syria, killing hundreds, or even thousands of terrorists. It is unclear if this has significantly deteriorated the militants’ strength, but it certainly bodes well for their opponents.

          With Russian assistance and expertise, new pro-government units have been created, and entered the battlefields. For example, the 5th Corps was created and developed with help from Russia. As already mentioned, the 5th Corps has played a key role in defending Hama, and shortly after they were dispatched to the area, the attacking militants lost momentum. The 5th Corps, and other relatively new, elite units have also demonstrated their ability to spearhead offensives in a variety of different scenarios and conditions, ranging from Aleppo city, to Palmyra.

          As it stands, militant groups, such as HTS, have gained from their recent Hama offensive, but their decline in Hama, and other areas in Syria is inevitable, provided they don’t receive significant external support.

            "Too late" as in if you own a South Korean made product like a Hyundai or Samsung, you might want to hold onto them. They are going to become collector's items.

                I say good riddance. The western cultures who cannibalised on the whole world for centuries, refused to help the byzentian greeks and screwed us over 100 years ago will be gone and guess what, armenians will still be here. I hope the greeks make it but the rest can go to hell.

                  With same logic, you can say worse about greeks and byzantinians, who did stab us in the back during Ani's fall, Vest Sargis, and exchange of populations from central Armenia, Vanant with Trakia....
                  Or much later with Kilikia...
                  Or in now days with the depopulation of Northern Lori and Javakhk, Treghk, with same Trakia, where they have a turkish manipulated, Pomak and Gypsy muslim problems....

                    Sorry my friend, your equations are one sided. You hate europe, but do not notice that it automatically has put you with Muslim conquest. And Muslims have wiped out whole civilizations by the bloodiest way.
                    We and Greeks will not exist if western culture dissapears.
                    This challenge is what we are facing too.
                    After Europe next will be Russia. That means us too.
                    I'd rather be wiped out then become Muslim. Can't worship the moon god.

                      US Air Force to quit Incirlik, move to Syria base
                      08/04/17
                      debka


                      Several US engineering teams are working round the clock to build a big new air base in northern Syria after completing the expansion of another four. They are all situated in the Syrian borderland with Iraq, DEBKAfile’s military forces report.
                      This was going on over the weekend as senators, news correspondents and commentators were outguessing each other over whether the US missile attack on the Syrian Shayrat air base Friday, in retaliation for the Assad regime’s chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun, was a one-off or the start of a new series.
                      As the White House parried those questions, the Trump administration was going full steam ahead on the massive project of preparing to pull US air force units out of the Incirlik air base in southern Turkey, in active American use since 2002. Those units were in the middle of a big moving job to the five new and expanded air bases in Syria. Their hub is to be Tabqa, which is just 40km west of the Islamic State’s Syrian capital, Raqqa. The other five are Hajar airport in the Rmelan region, two small air fields serving farm transport in Qamishli, which have been converted to military us; and a fifth in the Kurdish Kobani enclave north of Aleppo near the Syrian-Turkish border.
                      Tabqa is also becoming the main assembly-point for the joint US, Kurdish, tribal Arab force that is coming together in readiness for a major charge on Raqqa.
                      When the work is finished, the rising complex of air bases will enable America to deploy twice as many warplanes and helicopters in Syria as the Russians currently maintain.
                      The site of the Tabqa air field was captured as recently as late March by the Syrian Democratic Force (Kurdish-Arab fighters) which were flown in and dropped there by the US Air Force’s Air Mobility Command. It was quickly dubbed “Incirlik 2” or “Qayyarah-2” after the US command center running the Iraqi military offensive against ISIS in Mosul.
                      Tabqa is designed to accommodate the 2,500 US military personnel housed at Incirlik. Like the Americans, the German Bundeswehr is also on the point of quitting Incirlik and eying a number of new locations in Cyprus and Jordan. The Germans are pulling out over the crisis in their relations with Ankara. The Americans are quitting because President Donald Trump wants to chill US ties with Turkish President Reccep Tayyip Erdogan and cooperation with the Turkish army.
                      The five US bases in Syria are part of Trump’s three-pronged strategy which aims at a) fighting Islamist terror; b) blocking Iran’s land and air access to Syria; and c) providing the enclaves of the Syrian Kurdish-PYD-YPG with a military shield against the Turkish army.
