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.

    A nasty day for azeri's credibility. Even if they pay all of the bond holders debts, their credibility to borrow in the future is gone to the sewage.

    "Restructuring by Azerbaijan Bank Rattles Foreign Investors

    A “too big to fail” trade has backfired on the shores of the Caspian Sea.
    Bank bondholders who thought they were getting a near 6 percent yield for quasi-government risk have received a rude awakening."

      Big time pain. The question is how much pain and how quickly will it be delivered?

        It all depends on oil prices. Trump's meeting with the Saudis, where they purchased billions in arms, was it conditional on adjusting oil prices? Trump wants to sell 1/2 of the oil reserve, not a good move to keep prices low. At the same time, there are many countries that are pumping oil as fast as they can. China's economy is slowing. Too many factors to have proper perspective on future oil prices. The azeris could recover, if prices will go up to around $80 for couple years. Unlikely! If it stays around $50 for around a year the country will spiral into riots and violence.

          Check out this Azeri spin. "Everything is OK. We might have a lower credit rating for a couple days but in the future we might end up the greatest super power of all time."

            Azeri oil funded businesses now slowly withdrawing. If there is an Armenian bank that has capabilities of advancing into Georgian and Russian markets, I sure hope we take over.

              Not sure how the contract terms were drafted. Either way, it is going to be a battle that would expose the azeri's "credibility" in future borrowing (if any). I like where this BS is headed.

              "Creditors of Defaulted Azeri Bank Said to Contest Rehab Plan

              Creditors of Azerbaijan’s biggest bank are taking steps to block terms outlined by the lender earlier this week in a $3.3 billion debt restructuring, according to two members of the investor group.

              Debtholders of the International Bank of Azerbaijan are arguing their voting rights were diluted by the inclusion in the restructuring of a $1 billion deposit owed to the country’s oil fund, according to the people, who declined to be named because the discussions are private."

                An expert Central Asian analyst at the British University of Glasgow contends that the construction of the Turkish Stream pipeline will diminish the prospects of the Trans-Caspian pipeline.

                The analyst, Luca Aneschi, told Trend magazine that ďany progress on Turkish Stream would modify the structure of the demand for Caspian gas, making the Trans-Caspian pipeline even more irrelevant."

                The Trans-Caspian gas pipeline project seeks to lay of a 300-km gas pipeline between Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan along the bottom of the Caspian Sea, delivering gas from Central Asian and in particular from Turkmenistan, which is the fourth in the world in terms of gas reserves, to Azerbaijan. Further Turkmen gas would be pumped through existing infrastructure to Europe, thus decreasing EUís dependence on Russian energy supplies."

                  As if turkey back stabbing its beloved cousins the azeris with a Russian gas deal that will kill its billions of $ half built pipeline that was going to save the day for the azeri "economy" they are now getting screwed from the East as well. In perspective, the azeris lost millions from the Kazakh pension funds, it looks like the Central Asian countries are now dumping their Westward vision through azerbaijan and focusing on building their own network of refinery that will eventually be exported to India and China. In short, azerbaijan is cornered and screwed from all sides (it is like a gang rape). I mean ALL sides.

                  "Is This The Start Of Regional Cooperation In Central Asia?

                  In March and April, Mirziyaev secured deals for oil supplies from Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and Russia (which he visited on April 4-5). The Russian and Kazakh oil will come to Uzbekistan through Kazakh pipelines and will link up with a new Uzbek pipeline, yet to be built, and be taken to a new, fourth refinery, yet to be built, in Uzbekistan's Jizzakh region. The Turkmen oil goes to the refinery in Bukhara."

                    We should work closer with India too. Azeris seem to be sucking Pakistani d*ck, seems like a good opportunity to make friends with a major regional power.

                      It has been going on for a while now. In reality India and useless Kakis are not active player. China is a better deal. Indians are good people, I just don't like their makes no sense head shaking.

                      "Armenia and India Build Strategic Relationship

                      With Azerbaijan and Pakistan currently pursuing a strategic partnership (see EDM, September 28, 2016; December 15, 2016), Armenia and India have decided to step up their cooperation across several dimensions.
