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.


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.

  • Re: Syrian Armenian

    Cruel flash back:
    Remember this period?

    In the meen time, Armavia vanished, in the smog of unofficial embezzelment....
    Read well what I was saying back then... and how people reacted.

    I wish I was wrong, and armchair generals were the brains....

    Do you still think an expeditionary adventure is for us an option?

    • Re: Syrian Armenian

      Have a look at the situational map of the day:

      Haleb is virtually under siege.
      Plus the Armenian sectors are virtually in a siege, within the siege.
      Plus, the entire province of Haleb is virtually cut off from Hama....

      And this is the sector, where the turkish sponsored various entities are advancing most lately....

      So logistics is just a nightmare....
      At best, organised evacuation. And that would already be a major success.


      • Re: Syrian Armenian

        Yes, evacuation would be the priority. I wasn't aware so many Armenians are in Syria.

        Chance to go turkey shooting.

        Just add:

        The logistic itself will be a hard training........things change when your ass is really on the line.

          I do not know the exact number by now.
          But it was admitted, something between 80-100.000 before events.
          You have 15.000 in Armenia.
          Possibly some 10-20.000 in Lebanon, next dore, and possibly as much in Europe.
          Yet, you must still have at least some 30.000 left, specially elders, poors, people that could not afford to flee, and have lost the small they had, in property or marchandise, and spent the result of 3 generations work to survive for the last 5 years of trouble....

          Now the road via Turkey is totally closed.
          The only option is a very dangerous, costly taxi trip via unsafe roads towards Hama, Homs, then Beirut....
          A lot of people did dissapear on the road, if not got robbed...


          • Re: Syrian Armenian

            Yes, how can we forsaken them? its just not in my blood. That is where Turks can freely do what they done before. And what does Armenia do? we are sending peacekeepers to places for nothing when they should be sent to Syria and kick Turkish ass.

              My Dear,
              You are being misleaded by the word peacekeeper.
              1- you do not kick the ass of turks by peacekeepers. If you are wise ans powerful, you do it by proxies, as they are doing it. If not, last resort, you do it by armed forces...
              2- we are not senting peacekeepers for the sake of peace, while we are at war. What we are doing, is trying to use the thiniest links, to cooperate with the West, avoiding russia's veto. The only thing we found is peacekeepers.... even our boys in Lebanon do not defend a single Armenian, since they are based in southern Lebanon, where there is even not a single armenian family. And frankly speaking, do you think we do mind about turkoid albanians or afghans?

              3- By the way, by coincidence, today the road between Damaskos and Hama, I was mentionning as risky, is already cut by the jihadis from the Ghuta, north of Damaskos. So today Haleb is even more isolated than it was 2 days back...

                  I'm not sure at all.
                  They may have access to better western technologies, but they are not really engaged in military operations.
                  Our best forces are our special forces on duty in Arsakh.

                    About 2,500 Syrian Armenians find shelter in Armenia since May

                    YEREVAN, September 16. / ARKA /. About 2,500 Syrian Armenian refugees
                    have arrived in Armenia since 2015 May, Diaspora minister Hranush
                    Hakobyan told a parliament Q&A session today.

                    She said 600 families are being provided with money to pay apartment
                    rent and another 150 people have received low-interest loans (4% per
                    annum) for starting businesses in Armenia.

                    According to her, thirty Syrian Armenian orphans and 46 elderly people
                    have been institutionalized here.

                    She said both international organizations, some countries as well
                    private persons are providing assistance to Syrian refugees in
                    Armenia, but `the attention of international organizations is now
                    drawn to the refugees in Europe.'

                    She said Aleppo, which had the largest Armenian community in Syria,
                    now has about 8,000 ethnic Armenians, while their number throughout
                    Syria has dwindled to about 15,000.

                    Before the civil strife in Syria, it had a 100,000-strong Armenian
                    community, the bulk being in Aleppo. Armenians lived also in the
                    northeast of the province of al-Hasaka, capital Damascus and other

                      Armenia Keeps Its Arms Open to Syrian Refugees
                      September 18, 2015,
                      by Giorgi Lomsadze

                      If there was a “little Armenia” in Syria, to borrow Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian’s words, there is also a little Syria in Armenia. The South Caucasus country has taken in 2,500 refugees from Syria just over the summer and continues to hand out visas and Armenian passports to Armenian-Syrians.

                      Before flooding into the European Union, Syrians, at least those of Armenian heritage, were streaming into Armenia. At 15,500 refugees since the start of the conflict, according to UNHCR and government figures, Armenia ranks as one of the most frequent destinations outside of the European Union for migrant Syrians relative to population, an Economist chart shows.

                      The mass arrival has been emphatically described as a “homecoming” in Armenia, where national identity is seen as something shared between the country’s residents and its far-flung Diasporas. “There are a 100 small and big Armenias around the world,” Foreign Minister Nalbandian told the BBC’s Russian service in a September 14 interview.

                      Solidarity with the struggles of Syrian-Armenians runs strong in Armenia, but the government has been struggling to accommodate and integrate thousands of arrivals. Even though the school year already started on September 1, “we try [sic] to find out how many Syrian Armenian children will attend . . . schools,” said Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobian, reported on September 16.

                      Hakobian estimated that as many as 15,000 ethnic Armenians remain in Syria -- about the same number as currently are in Armenia itself, according to UNHCR. In Aleppo, a traditional hub for Syria’s ethnic Armenians, the Armenian consul, Tigran Kevorkian, claims that his consulate is the only foreign diplomatic mission still functioning. “Three times a week, diplomats drive out to Kessab [another ethnic Armenian population base — ed] and [the port city of] Latakia to provide consular services,” he told recently.

                      Shelling of the city has damaged and destroyed diaspora cultural sites in the Nor Gyugh, Aleppo’s Armenian quarter, said Gevorkian adding that the consulate has been evacuating cultural-heritage items to Lebanon and Armenia. He also said that his office still provides visas for free to Syrian-Armenian applicants.

                      With no decrease in the fighting in Syria in sight, Armenian officials expect a continued inflow of migrants from Syria. Building a “New Aleppo,” a residential complex near the capital, Yerevan, is among the projects Armenia is considering to help accommodate the arrivals.
