- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)

- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc

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.

      Joint Armenian-Russian Air Defense System To Put Brakes On Azerbaijan's Claims To Nagorno Karabakh: STRATFOR

      JOINT ARMENIAN-RUSSIAN AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM TO PUT BRAKES ON AZERBAIJAN'S CLAIMS TO NAGORNO KARABAKH: STRATFOR

      A joint missile Russian-Armenian air defense system will put the
      brakes on Azerbaijan's goal of retaking Nagorno-Karabakh and seven
      adjacent territories, Stratfor said as it analyzed the motives behind
      the Russian-Armenian air defense deal. Excerpts from the analysis
      are provided below.

      On Nov. 11, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed his government
      to sign an agreement with Armenia to create a joint missile air
      defense system in the region. Not long after, the Armenian government
      confirmed that Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev is expected
      to visit Armenia in late November to officially sign the air defense
      system deal.

      The move, though reminiscent of Moscow's actions in Central Asia and
      Belarus in previous years, comes at a time when Russia is being forced
      to respond to a wider array of challenges than ever before. Threats are
      rising from the Near East, while the West is ramping up its military
      activities in Georgia and Nagorno-Karabakh moves closer to changing
      its political status.

      And as Russia increases its military presence in Armenia, its
      competition with major regional powers for influence in the South
      Caucasus will intensify, adding to the growing list of issues Russia
      must contend with outside its borders.

      An expanding military presence will put Russia in direct competition
      with Turkey's ambitions in the South Caucasus and Georgia's cooperation
      with NATO and U.S. forces. It will also put the brakes on Azerbaijan's
      goal of retaking Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent territories.

      For Armenia's part, the joint air defense deal comes at an opportune
      time. Its government has received mounting criticism from Armenian
      politicians and media amid a growing belief that the country's
      membership in the Russian-led Collective Security Treaty Organization
      and its reliance on Russia as a security guarantor have yielded few
      results, particularly as Azerbaijan pursues a more assertive military
      posture around Nagorno-Karabakh.

      Under the new agreement, Armenian air defenses will be strengthened,
      and the country will likely see new air defense equipment, radios,
      radar systems and combat helicopters deployed to its territory.

      Armenian Minister of Territorial Administration and Emergency
      Situations Armen Yeritsyan also recently announced that the Stepanavan
      Airport, located a mere 20 kilometers (about 12 miles) from the
      Armenia-Georgia border, will host Russian Mi-24 and KA-32 heavy
      helicopters starting in 2016. While these aircraft do not amount
      to a projection of Russian force because of their limited range,
      they do reflect the Kremlin's broader policy of boosting its air
      capabilities in Armenia -- a process that dates back to January 2014,
      when Russia announced that it would strengthen Armenia's Erebuni
      Airport with Mi-24P, Mi-8MT and Mi-8SMV helicopters. Along a similar
      vein, Nagorno-Karabakh's president has said Russian forces may use
      his region's Stepanakert Airport for air operations, an offer that
      may be in response to the recent uptick in air cooperation between
      Armenia and Russia.

      Russia's growing military presence in the South Caucasus will be
      especially worrisome to Turkey and Azerbaijan, Armenia's longtime
      rivals in the region. The two countries have ramped up their joint
      military exercises with Georgia over the past year, posing a heightened
      threat to Armenia, whose strategic position is already weak. Since
      Turkey already had less ability than Russia to project power into the
      South Caucasus, the Kremlin's recent moves will only increase the
      gap between Russian and Turkish influence there, thus intensifying
      their competition for sway in the wider region.

      Meanwhile, Russia's stronger aerial presence in Armenia could alter
      the military balance of power between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

      Azerbaijani politicians have already voiced concerns about the
      air defense agreement, and on Nov. 11 -- the same day Putin gave
      his orders to sign the deal -- Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev
      visited his country's S-300 anti-aircraft missile brigade, the unit
      responsible for Azerbaijan's aerial defenses.

      The timing of the deal is significant for a number of reasons. First,
      it signals Russia's response to recent developments in the ongoing
      standoff between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh. As
      talks progress on Armenia handing over to Azerbaijan several regions
      adjacent to the breakaway territory, Russia will boost its military
      presence in the South Caucasus to ensure the security of Armenia
      and Nagorno-Karabakh and to make any further territorial concessions
      more politically palatable to Yerevan. Second, as Russia becomes more
      involved in the Syrian conflict, Moscow is keen to increase its ability
      to monitor its southern borders -- a goal that a military presence
      in Armenia, with its proximity to the Middle East, is ideally suited
      to achieve.

        Azerbaijan just took a backseat with it's arsenal of weapons. Now is the time to begin building from within!

          I noticed that too......the uniform looks brand new starched. He looks good in it but notice he is not very happy. I hope its not because of gaps in our defense.

              US co-chair: Seven occupied territories surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh will have to be returned to Azerbaijan’s control

              Baku. Malahat Najafova – APA. As I stated in my speech at the Carnegie Endowment, the seven occupied territories surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh will have to be returned to Azerbaijan’s control as part of a comprehensive settlement.

              U.S. co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick told APA the aforesaid while commenting on the news disseminated upon Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s recent visit to Armenia on return of some territories surrounding Nagorno Karabakh.

              “Another important element of a settlement will be a determination of Nagorno-Karabakh’s status. It is essential for the presidents to find the political will to reach a settlement that contains these elements”, stressed the U.S. co-chair.
