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.

      Who the Kurds are and what they did, or what they are capable under right circumstances is a fact. But I don't see any benefit of letting a new state be our enemy even before it is born.
      Haven't we got enough enemies?
      What Kurds did as ethnic group under Turkish mentors controll can be totally different from what future leadership or general population of a country that is based on different geopolitical needs and aspirations will do.
      --- to let that fall under that sad pasts shadow ---
      Although I understand your point, wherever that shadow is cast is what determines what is under that shadow.

      As far as the Kurds, i think it needs to be understood that there are different factions within the Kurds, and we need to best understand that to make the best of the situation. The Kurds in Turkey, as far as the PKK is concerned, are about as left wing as it gets, and this puts them far them far away from either Islamists or NATO. At this point it needs to be understood they represent a different entity that those who committed the Genocide.
      --- so one day when the opportunity exists ---

      --- they represent a different entity ---
      Ok, as I said ... Not good for us to start fight with them and both turcs.

      The entity we are talking about is kurds, and the goal that falls under that sad pasts shadow , and the goal of today are --- IDENTICLE ---
      I know that's probably just a coincidence.
      Ok, how about if we stop dancing and simply say ... We are not against your struggle with the turcs, but understand , when time is right we are coming back to claim what our murdered family had stolen.

        Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
        Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
        Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

            Twenty air defense units in CIS states put on high alert for Combat Commonwealth-2015 drills - Russian Defense Ministry (Part 2)

            MOSCOW. Aug 18 (Interfax-AVN) - The first phase of the CIS Combat Commonwealth-2015 joint air defense exercises began on Tuesday, the Russian Defense Ministry has reported.

            "At the start of the drills, units and divisions of the air defense and missile defense troops of the Aerospace Forces stationed in the Moscow region were put on high alert. The exercises will consist of three phases and will continue until September 11," the Russian ministry's press service said in a report seen by Interfax-AVN on Tuesday.

            The first stage of the drills included measures to put the forces participating in the Combat Commonwealth-2015 maneuvers on high alert at their permanent bases.

            "In this context, some 20 military units of the Armed Forces of the states taking part in the CIS Joint Air Defense System were put on high alert," the ministry said.

            In total, the exercises will involve more than 1,000 servicemen and over 200 units of the Aerospace Force's military and special-purpose hardware, including S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile systems, S-300 Favorit air defense missile systems, MiG-29, Sukhoi Su-24, Su-34, Su-27, Su-30, Su-25, MiG-31 and Tupolev Tu-22 airplanes, and Mil Mi-8AMTSh helicopters.

            Apart from the Russian units, air defense force servicemen from another five CIS member countries - Belarus, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia - will take part in the drills.

            "The other participants in the CIS Joint Air Defense System will participate in the exercises as observers," the ministry said.

            The first phase of the drills will be wrapped up by redeploying personnel and military hardware of the countries involved in the maneuvers to the Ashuluk training range in Russia's southern Astrakhan region, which will host the active phase of the exercises.

            The personnel and the hardware will reach the Ashuluk range using a combined method: by rail and by air.

              It's not confirmed. Anyway, there was a Russian "base" (actually a radar station) at this same location until a few years ago and it did not change anything in terms of Russian relations w/ Armenia vis-a-vis Azerbaijan. Also to add that the radar station is exclusive for usage by Russia and is meant for long range missile detection. It is not connected to Azerbaijan's air defense grid.

              That said, maybe Armenia can offer to host this same type of radar station on its soil if it covers the appropriate range that Russia wants by placing it in Azerbaijan.

                      This railway can help in regards of military and moving of equipment.why would Russia appose it tho?

                      Armenia PM: We’ll construct Iran-Armenia railway despite Russia’s stance
                      [ 19 August 2015 11:42 ]

                      “We also have our own interests”

                      Baku. Turbet Baghirova – APA. Of course, the construction of Iran-Armenia railway may not be in the interests of our neighbors, but we must still construct it, Armenia’s PM Hovik Abrahamyan told Armenian News –, touching on the perspectives of Iran-Armenia railway and Russia’s stance over that issue.

                      In his words, Armenia and Russia are strategic allies and members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). “But we also have our own interests - the interests of our people and homeland – and I’m ready to discuss the issue with them as a partner,” Abrahamyan said.

                      Iran-Armenia railway has a very important strategic significance for Armenia and its economy, the PM said. “And we’ll do that, regardless of whether it offends anyone or is not in their interests. The fact is that the successful completion of the construction will contribute to the economic activation and development of business in our country,” Abrahamyan said.
