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.

        Turks are brothers, Kurds are brothers, Russians, French, Georgians, Americans.

              Challenges Annual Forum 2015 is launched in Yerevan

              5 OCTOBER 2015
              On October 4, 2015, in the new building of the Institute for National Strategic Studies, MOD, RA (which is going to be transformed into the National Defense Research University, MOD, RA) the Partner-State Committee’s Meeting of the International Forum Challenges of Peace Operations took place – preceding the Challenges Annual Forum launched in Yerevan on October 5.

              The Committee is an international cooperation body, which has played a key role contributing to the development of the UN’s current Peacekeeping Strategy. This is the international governing body of the Forum and decides the main priorities of the Forum’s activities. The coordination of the Committee’s activities is implemented by the International Secretariat, the headquarters of which is in Sweden.

              The States in the Committee are represented by one or several agencies, as well as by non-governmental organizations. The Republic of Armenia became the Forum’s Member in 2014 and is represented by the Institute for National Strategic Studies, MOD, RA. The Committee’s Session in Yerevan was attended by representatives from Armenia, Australia, Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Norway, the Russian Federation, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the US.

              At the beginning of the Session the Members of the Committee expressed their gratitude to the Institute for National Strategic Studies, particularly, to the Head of the Institute, Advisor to the RA Minister of Defense, Doctor of Political Science, Professor, Major General Hayk Kotanjian for organizing the Annual Forum and the Session of the Committee in Armenia at a high level.

              Challenges Forum is the most reputable international organization in the field of peacekeeping, which includes 22 members – among them 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council.

              Taking into consideration the fact that the Republic of Armenia gained significant experience in the field of peace operations, as well as the successful organization of the International Strategic Policy Forum “The Integration of National and Regional Peacekeeping Capacities into the Global System of Peace Operations Based on the Principles and Standards of the UN”, organized by the Institute for National Strategic Studies MOD, RA, the CSTO Secretariat and the Joint Staff of the CSTO, the Challenges Forum made a decision to hold the Annual Forum 2015 in Armenia.

              The holding of the Forum is critical, particularly in the light of the latest tensions in international relations in different regions, in particular, under the rising violence in the Middle East. On September 29, 2015, the importance of holding this Forum in Armenia was emphasized by the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in New York during his meeting with the RA President Serzh Sargsyan. The Republic of Armenia actively engages in peace operations, implemented under the roof of the UN and NATO.

              This International Forum became the first international expert-level discussion dedicated to the peacekeeping strategic perspectives after the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly and the UN Peacekeeping Summit. In this regard, the Forum discussed ways of implementing the recommendations of the Report of the UN Secretary General’s Independent High-level Panel on Peace Operations (HIPPO).

              Challenges Annual Forum 2015 “Institution- and Capacity Building for Peace: Implications of the UN Review Panel’s Recommendations for Future Missions” was held on October 5-6. The Forum was attended by 100 representatives from 21 states.

              During Challenges Annual Forum 2015 “Institution- and Capacity Building for Peace: Implications of the UN Review Panel’s Recommendations for Future Missions”, held in Yerevan, the RA Minister of Defense Seyran Ohanyan, the RA Minister of Foreign Affairs Edward Nalbandian, and Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations of the UN Edmond Mulet delivered welcoming speeches.

              Taking into account the great importance of the Forum and its impact on the synchronization of the leading experts’ ideas about peacekeeping issues covering the scope of the World Peace, General Hayk Kotanjian suggested to rename the Forum as the Global Forum for the Challenges of Peace Operations and asked Partners’ Committee to consider the proposal and to make a decision at the next Partners’ Meeting.

                Armenia’s efforts are highly valued in the peacekeeping field

                5 OCTOBER 2015
                On October 5, RA Defence Minister Seyran Ohanyan received Anne Witowsky, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Stability and Humanitarian affairs.

                Seyran Ohanyan welcomed Mrs. Witkowsky to Armenia, as well as to the RA Ministry of Defence, and stressed the importance of her attendance at the international conference on peacekeeping issues, launched in Yerevan on October 5.

                Anne Witkowsky also noted that Armenia is an important partner in the international peacekeeping and that the USA highly values Armenia’s efforts.

                During the meeting, discussions were held on the Republic of Armenia’s participation in maintaining peace and international stability operations, US-Armenian cooperation, issues related to humanitarian projects, and regional security matters

                  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

                      Azerbaijan continues ceasefire violations, uses artillery weapons
                      Azerbaijani armed forces continuously violated the ceasefire on the contact line with Nagorno Karabakh on the night of October 6-7.

                      According to the NKR Defense Ministry, Azerbaijani armed forces fired over 1900 shots from firearms, sniper rifles, machine guns, Istiglal anti-materiel rifle, as well as 60-mm mortars amid ceasefire violations.

                      Besides, the Azeri armed units were carrying out air force training flights 50 km away from the contact line with Nagorno Karabakh.

                      Karabakh defense forces continue controlling the situation, retaliating in case of necessity.
