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.

                So basically the Armenian government is signalling to us that they are just going to sit there and do nothing as Armenian lives are lost. That this behavior from Azerbaijan does not deserve to be checked? Seems like I don't see Armenia ever bringing the heat to preemptively strike these monkeys. Shameful on the leadership. RIP to the lost soldier.

                    Easy to sit behind a computer and criticize something you clearly know nothing about.

                      Azerbaijan Facing Large Cuts In Defense Budget

                      February 4, 2016 - 8:04pm, by Joshua Kucera The Bug Pit Azerbaijan
                      Azerbaijan is being forced to cut its defense budget, once the pride of the nation, as a result of the collapse in oil prices.

                      Other oil-dependent states in the region like Kazakhstan and Russia also will likely have to make across-the-board budget cuts because of the drop in oil prices. But the situation appears most dire in Azerbaijan, not least because it is locked in a conflict with Armenia over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh.

                      Azerbaijan's government has consistently bragged about its defense budget, which, starting in 2011, it claimed exceeded Armenia's entire state budget. Azerbaijan's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hikmat Hajiyev told the American newspaper Defense News in a story published this week that that "defense spending had enabled the Azerbaijani armed forces to be supplied with requisite advanced weaponry needed to re-take 
'its Armenian-held territories.'"

                      “It is our priority and we will continue to increase military spending," said Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev in 2014. "Over the past 10 years, our military spending has increased more than 20-fold, and our spending allocated to the armed forces is approximately twice as large as Armenia’s overall state budget."

                      But that defense spending was fueled by oil, and with prices dropping and unlikely to rise soon, Baku is reportedly having to make cuts in its military budget. How big the cuts will be is unclear, as Azerbaijan's budget -- following the norm around the region -- is far from transparent.

                      While the base defense budget is slated to rise slightly to $1.2 billion in 2016, that figure doesn't include the "special projects and activities" budget line that is believed to have funded Baku's military procurement since 2011. That line item was excluded from budget estimates published recently, reported British newspaper Jane's Defence Weekly. That could represent about a 40 percent budget cut. "With no indications to date on when or if this supplementary budget allocation will return, or if it will be replaced by a new source of funding, procurement activity seems likely to slow in the short term," Jane's reported.

                      Azerbaijan's huge defense budgets of the past may have been exaggerated. Emil Sanamyan, a regional analyst who analyzed Azerbaijan's recent defense spending, concluded that: "Judging by itemized spending since 2011, Azerbaijan may have overstated its actual military spending by more than $1 billion annually so that this spending would appear larger than Armenia's budget."

                      Nevertheless, Azerbaijan has spent freely over the past several years, buying air defense systems, helicopters, and tanks from Russia; drones and missiles from Israel, and armored vehicles from Turkey and South Africa.

                      Officially Azerbaijan hasn't acknowledged that the defense budget will be cut. In spite of having to revise the budget to account for $30-a-barrel oil (from a previous estimate of $50 a barrel), officials in Baku have said that because of the fall in the currency and inflation, they will be able to actually increase both revenues and spending this year.
