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.

          Trend, Azerbaijan
          Dec 15 2015

          15 December 2015

          Azerbaijan sent a protest note to the US in connection with a meeting
          of the OSCE Minsk Group's US Co-chair James Warlick with the "foreign
          minister" of the separatist regime created by Armenia in Azerbaijan's
          occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region.

          The protest note was handed over to the US Ambassador in Baku Robert
          Cekuta by Deputy Foreign Minister Mahmud Mammadguliyev, said the
          press office of the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan.

          "Participation of the OSCE Minsk Group's US co-chair in the activities
          aimed against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan
          is completely contrary to the mandate of a co-chairing institution of
          the Minsk Group, and casts shadow on its neutrality and impartiality,"
          read the protest note.

          "Such a step is also contrary to the official policy of the US on the
          non-recognition of legitimacy of the situation created through the
          use of force against Azerbaijan's territorial integrity, accompanied
          with ethnic cleansing, flagrant violation of international norms and
          principles," the document said.

          In its note, Azerbaijan also informed the US Department of State that
          creation of conditions in the US for the so-called representatives
          of the separatist regime for participation in public campaigns and
          other activities there, don't help to achieve progress in the talks
          over the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict, but rather exacerbates a process
          that is already complicated.

          Azerbaijan also stressed that the lack of an adequate response to
          the provocative actions of Armenia leads to an increase in Yerevan's
          sense of impunity.

          Azerbaijan expressed hope that the US will remain committed to
          implementation of internationally agreed resolutions and decisions,
          as well as to non-recognition of the illegal regime created by Armenia
          in the occupied Azerbaijani territories.

          The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988
          when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan.

          As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied
          20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and
          seven surrounding districts.

          The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs
          of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently
          holding peace negotiations.

          Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council's four
          resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the
          surrounding regions.

            Karabakh | 15.12.15 | 10:13

            Alexander Lukashevich

            A senior Russian diplomat has warned Turkey against supporting
            Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict following statements by
            Ankara officials about their efforts to help Baku regain control over
            the disputed region.

            In comments on the Rossiya-24 TV channel on Monday, Aleksandr
            Lukashevich, who currently serves as Russia's ambassador to the
            Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's (OSCE)
            headquarters in Vienna, said that Turkey's position runs counter to
            international efforts to broker a Karabakh settlement.

            "Such a position is not supported in the OSCE," said Lukashevich,
            reminding that Russia, along with the United States and France,
            carries the main burden of the mediatory mission as a Minsk Group
            co-chair country. He said that while Turkey is also a member of the
            Minsk Group, "the leading role [in the Karabakh peace process] is
            reserved for the three co-chairs."

            "Therefore, attempts to defend one of the parties to the conflict in
            Nagorno-Karabakh are absolutely destructive and cannot have any
            continuation," Lukashevich emphasized.

            The senior Russian diplomat's remarks come amid continuing tensions in
            the relations between Moscow and Ankara that followed the November 24
            downing by a Turkish fighter jet of a Russian warplane near the
            Syrian-Turkish border.

            Late last month Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Foreign
            Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu paid separate visits to Baku reassuring
            Azerbaijan's leadership of Ankara's support in the Karabakh conflict
            resolution. Cavusoglu, in particular, also criticized the American,
            Russian and French mediators for failing to achieve a Karabakh
            settlement acceptable to Azerbaijan.

            The statements were taken by some analysts and politicians in Moscow
            as Turkey's intention to "open a second front" against Russia in the
            Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.

            Tensions near Nagorno-Karabakh and along the volatile
            Armenian-Azerbaijani border have increased in recent days amid efforts
            of the mediators to organize a fresh Armenian-Azerbaijani summit. The
            Minsk Group co-chairs say such a meeting between Armenian President
            Serzh Sargsyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev could be held
            before the end of the year.

            Russia is Armenia's key political and military ally and has a military
            base in Armenian soil. Armenia is also a member of the Collective
            Security Treaty Organization, a defense pact of six former Soviet
            nations led by Russia.

              Armenia and Greece to deepen military and technical cooperation

              YEREVAN. - The Minister of Defense of Armenia, Seyran Ohanyan, highly appreciates the level of military and technical cooperation with Greece.

              At a joint briefing today with the visiting Minister of National Defense of Greece, Panagiotis Kammenos, Ohanyan said that the necessary legal framework is available for the development of that cooperation.

              During the talks held today, the ministers discussed the key directions of cooperation - military education, peacekeeping actions, preparation of a special operations detachment, as well as military and technical cooperation. The sides also touched on the regional issues. Ohanyan briefed his counterpart on the situation round the settlement of the Karabakh conflict.

              For his part, Panagiotis Kammenos noted the importance of cooperation between the two brotherly nations. “The development of the military and technical cooperation will also positively impact the economy of both countries,” the Minister said, reminding the proverb “If you want peace, prepare for war.”

                Greece Defense Minister compares Turkey with Goliath

                YEREVAN. - The history of the Armenian and Greek nations is written with blood and is full of victims. Minister of National Defense of Greece, Panagiotis Kammenos, said the aforementioned at a joint briefing with the Minister of Defense of Armenia, Seyran Ohanyan.

                According to the Greek Minister, many joint events were held in the year marking the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide and Pontic Greeks. “The people who forget their history, die,” he said.

                In the words of Mr Panagiotis Kammenos, Turkey’s Armed Forces continue violating the sea borders and airspace of Greece; occupation of part of Cyprus is continuing. “But the Armed Forces of Greece are in excellent condition; the cooperation with NATO and Russia is developing,” he said.

                Continuing the topic of the Armenian Genocide, the Minister noted that the story of David and Goliath teaches that the winner is not always the one who is larger and physically stronger. “The one, on whose side the truth is, is stronger,” Mr Panagiotis Kammenos said.

                He also reminded that many parliaments have acknowledged the Genocide despite the resisting powerful Turkish lobby. “Armenia and Greece survived a Genocide, fought a strong adversary. When the truth is on your side, you are stronger,” the Minister said.

                      To stop sniper attacks by Azeris we need to use special equipements night vision mil dot sights with a light rifle. No need for 50 cal like above. Thats in war. Our problem is that very trained soldiers/snipers are taking shots at our 17 year old young inexperience soldiers. We need to counter that. Teams of two snipers together scatter the land live off the land and move positions, report activities, hunt down take out a Azeri snipers.
                      Our boys need that special training, I think few of the best have it but you need the special training more of us at contact line and inside deadman zone......... crack shot move like Ninjas......Lets see then who is going to win the sniper war.
