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.


- 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.

  • Re: Nagorno-Karabagh: Military Balance Between Armenia & Azerbaijan

    About joint defense system with Russia.
    The benefit for us is about turkey.
    We have Azerbaijan covered by our selfs, but turkey on the other hand is a different matter. Erdoghan's turkey has become very unpredictable and dangerous for us, just like for orher's. It's grandiose panturkust behavior is very dangerous.
    Just like with Kurds in Syria and Iraq, who is to say that in case of war with Azerbaijan, it would not commence to some kind of military quick action by air or in Azeri soil tipping the war in baku's favor?
    After all Turks are masters in using a situations in creating realities that international community does deal with little or no reaction.
    It can take a single encroachment by air to tip the balance of war in Baku's favor. We are a small country with only a handful of targets.
    Now we can be assured that the air is better protected. It was enough against Azerbaijan, but will be against Turkey

        BTW...this is a HUGE. I think sometimes we take things really lightly. But with the current situation in Syria and the growing Russian presence in the middle east (militarily), the talk is that Russia wants to build an air defense system that covers the entire middle east and gives it operational leverage over Syria and possibly Iraq. Good for us, Armenia was chosen to be this location. The talk is not only about modernizing Armenia's air defense system. It's also about establishing radar systems, radioelectronic systems, jamming systems and anti-curise/ballistic missile capabilities that would allow Russian jets operate safely over the entire region. This is not about Armenia as much as it is about Russia creating a system that counters the American missile shield and forward presence in the middle east.

        There was a really interesting report a month (or so) back. Back then they showed that Armenian radars already cover the entire airspace of azerbaijan. I remember in the report they showed Haidar Aliev airport and the planes flying over it (on the radar). The talk will now be about a wider spectrum including the entire turkish airspace, airspace of Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and caspian see all the way to Tajikistan (at least that's what they showed) and hopefully new missile systems that can cover at least part of this airspace (hopefully the S-400s).

        Armenia's value for Russia will get a huge boost if this goes through as planned. Our homeland deserves it.
        Agree 100%. This is a fantastic development. I've heard so many arguments from Armenians and others for and against the Russian alliance...well, this pretty much quashes all the naysayers against Russia. Sure, more can be done with regards to providing aircraft, missiles, etc but this air defense system protects Armenia against Turkish invasion, not just on a technical side but also with regards to the impetus and very explicit message of Russian support. It's also beneficial because as ArmeniSacra stated above, Armenian is providing something Russia needs, positioning closer to the M.E. region.

          The first beta run for the silk road has taken place.

          Route used Kazakhstan , Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey.

          Time taken 4 days instead of 30 days.

          It has avoided Russia, Iran ( and Armenia).

          North south railway route argument heavily undermined.

          Source, Armenian TV news.

          The only consolation is that this journey is being refereed to as beta run.

          No other explanation from the Chinese side.

          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
