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.

      that was awesome. Ideally I wish the two of them would annihilate each other off the face of the earth. But since this isn't fantasy world, it would advance our position an unreal amount if the the Kurds manage to establish some of form of autonomy across the length of our border.

        Yes, it isn't fantasy world, more like bizarro world. But still I like your "annihilate each other" fantasy. How utterly appropriate that would be.
        Everything I'm reading on the kerd conduct in Syria says kerds want all northern tear of Syria. As they move into each area they try to intimidate the non kerd villagers and towns to leave under the pretext that it's for their saftey (sound familiar ?) and when their successful emediatly level al the non Kurd homes and set up defensive works to hold the land. They are using this conflict to expand their claims of "kerdistoon).
        Poor computer skills prevented me from posting the last conflict in recent days between them and the Assyrians. Basically they tried to run this game on some Assyrians that conjoined them to fight common foe. Then tried to assert their dominance over assyrian land. The Assyrians stomped them. One or two Assyrians were killed and I think at least 8 kerds bit the dust.
        When we hear of and allied kerd/Assyr force it's mostly kerd PR. The Assyrians are watching like a hawk as their experience with the ever so lovely low life's mirrors our experience.
        The kerd is using this conflict as an opportunity for them to grab more land.
        Yes, I suppose I have to agree with you about our western border, but it's with great (GREAT) reluctance.
        What lovely and precious neighbors they'll make.
        So looking forward to that. Well that and cancer. I hear cancer has its upside to, lol.

          There are 30+ million of them, they dont have a paved road built on their own.
          I will trust a turk before I trust a kurd.

              I'm not so fond of the Assyrians as well.
              During the Lebanese Civil War, the Assyrians allied themselves with the fascist Christian Lebanese Forces militia (ouwwet) and fought against the Armenians.
              Every Assyrian I've met despises Armenians. One even told me that they prefer Muslims over Armenians. They're jealous as hell that they don't have a home land and we have one.

                If the Kurds start winning in South and Eastern Turkey, which I believe they will, we have to act in a pragmatic way and take sides with the Kurds, rather than NATO Turkey.
                At least Kurdish majority party, HDP, admitted and apologized for Kurdish actions during the Genocide. Better than denialist Turkey.

                  I agree with this 100%.

                    The animosity between us and Assyr is more than their jealousness you mention and goes back much longer ago. All the way back to Haig & Bell. I read read somewhere they were the most vicious people of the era. I also read that one of the Armenian rulers who battled them, when he caught the Assyr ruler he was fighting, skinned him alive and made him eat his own flesh.
                    The hatred between us and them goes back long and is deep.
                    We have stood up for them in modern times moreso than the other way around. I couldn't emaginable giving them any kind of real power. Still, I think it's incumbent upon us to do the right thing toward them.

                    --- Kurd party admits genocide --- I read that too. Nothing more than a politicle ploy. When asked if any compensation was forthcoming , the reply was ... NO, the apology is enough. They are willing to run their mouth , the end. Every apology I've read goes from --- I'm sorry to the turc made us do it. Usually in the same sentence. Their apology is for public appearance and nothing more. You would need special scientific equipment to measure the depth of their shallowness.
                    But again I have to agree on your pragmatic reasoning. But it's with ever so great reluctance.
                    I cannot figure out who got less heart, kerd or turc, and no surprise how those two allied to our destruction. They both wanted the same thing ... Our land and wealth.
                    They are still fighting over that to this day.
                    Liked Mher's idea the best.
                    Ya, pragmatism wins for now.
                    Our march from the ashes of death continues.

                      That sums it up.
