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.

      In October, 2014 on the basis of the Armenian Machine Tool Plant a joint Armenian-Polish military-industrial enterprise “Lyubava-Armenia” was set up. Recently, during the military international exhibition in Kazakhstan, the products of this plant were also represented and were awarded high praise.

      The product range is based on the requirements of the international market, as well as the needs of the Armenian army. The range of the plant is large: helmets, flak jackets, individual protective suits, inflatable and false targets, universal tents, backpacks and others. They also produce products for civilian use. It should be noted that all raw materials are imported from Poland. “Lyubava-Armenia” receives orders both from Armenia and from abroad.

      Much attention is paid to workers of the plant. Employees periodically undergo retraining in Poland. During the working day, all employees are required to study the standards, technologies of preparation of different of samples, the conditions necessary to ensure the quality. It is planned every year, parallel to the increase in the volumes of production, to open about 25 new jobs at the plant.

      The factory supplies RA Defense Ministry universal tents, camouflage nets and body armor. These nets provide optical, thermal, radio-definitional invisibility of the object and can cover both personnel and military equipment on the territory of more than 200sq.m.

      The protective vest provides protection from sniper shot and is designed for the soldiers involved in active hostilities. The attached additional elements provide additional protection for the neck, shoulders, and abdomen. The weight of the vest is evenly distributed throughout the body. The heaviest flak jacket weighs up to 8kg.

      Universal tents can be used in any terrain, under different climatic conditions, at temperatures from -30 to +50. The frame is made of aluminum or stainless steel, is sewn of polyester and stitches are worked up with a special solution for impermeability. The tent is for about 60 soldiers.

        The international youth-oriented military-educational competitive event “Unity 2015 – Heirs of Victory: Armenia” proceeds in full force with athletic, educational and cultural programs. The seminars and competitive events take place at the designated locations in the Tsakhkadzor sports complex. On the 20th of August, the platoons formed based on the concept of diversity tested their strengths in the “Military Cross-Country 3km Platoon Race,” and participated in a history quiz.
        In the specially cleared tent camp in the Tsakhkadzor sports complex, the participants were given insights into mountaineering by experienced professionals, and attempted to live one day in a state of emergence.
        According to the president of the organizational committee and head of military-educational seminars and competitions Vladimir Fedorsov, the experience so far is highly satisfactory and promising: “All of the sports are team-based. Our main objective is to develop a teamwork mentality, which is the key to victory. Every day we witness how they become further acquainted and closer, help each other out, and overcome difficulties together.”

          PKK declares autonomous region in Turkey’s Dersim province
          The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) has declared a democratic autonomous region in Dersim province of Turkey, and established checkpoints on the main road this week, Rudaw reports.

          A video released by the PKK shows the group’s fighters controlling the road and searching vehicles.

          “We as guerrillas, under the right of self-defense for ourselves and our nation, declare democratic autonomy in Dersim,” a fighter in the video said.

          The PKK claimed that in Hakkari its fighters killed 32 Turkish security forces and lost five of their own. The Turkish government announced only one Turkish soldier was killed and several others wounded.

          The Diyarbakir governor’s office announced a curfew starting from 1 am in response to the violence.

          According to Turkish media reports, during a rally people in the mainly Kurdish Dogubeyazit district declared self-management.

          "We declare our self-management," said Muhsin Kula, who claimed to be part of the new government. “Our villages and

          cities have been turned into ruins. The latest Varto case is proof that humanity is dead.”

          Varto is a town in eastern Turkey where a female PKK fighter was allegedly raped and killed before her naked body was dragged through the streets by Turkish security forces. The incident has outraged Kurds throughout the region.

          “We will not recognize state institutions in this region. We hereby declared that we manage ourselves,” Kula said.

                      Political expert considers Armenian Army most successful state structure

                      14:16, 22 August, 2015
                      YEREVAN, AUGUST 22, ARMENPRESS. The Armenian Army has been the most successful state structure since the Declaration of Independence.

                      Doctor of political sciences, Professor Levon Shirinyan expressed such an opinion during his meeting with the journalists August 22. “The Armed Forces of Armenia is exceptional as it was founded in the battlefield during the Artsakh liberation war which is an exceptional phenomena in the world.”, Armenpress reports, the political expert stated. He also noted that the people of Armenia were very enthusiastic on the day of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

                      “It was indeed a victorious day for all of us, as the society was absolutely positive about the declaration. Nowadays the historical decision made on August 23 is paid little attention to which is a wrong approach. That declaration later served as a basis for declaring the Armenian Independence.”, emphasized Shirinyan.

                      The citizens of the Soviet Armenia made a historical decision on August 23, 1990, choosing independence as the only possible status and undeviating path to the development of the country. The Declaration of Independence adopted by the Supreme Council of the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic August 23, 1990 was not only the expression of the Armenian people’s dream of restoring their independent state but also an attempt to reunite Armenia and the Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenian Declaration of Independence is based on the December 1, 1989, joint decision of the Armenian SSR Supreme Council and the Artsakh National Council on the "Reunification of the Armenian SSR and the Mountainous Region of Karabakh".
