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.

            But some pressure from our side is needed on Russia.
            One thing that Russians are very sensitive about is the anti Russian sentiment in populations of countries around. But that sentiment has to be applied carefully and orchestrated, because Russians also have a character of pulling in their shell and hardening. They did this with Georgia, Baltic republics and Ukraine. Except Ukraine, there is hardly any Russian public out rich to people in this countries in order to defuse and build bridges. In this regard Russians are similar to Turks. Their government has sole initiative in forming any relations or breaking it up. Public just follows.
            So this outpouring of our public anger has to be done carefully and by reaching and touching Russian public in a positive way to have them engage. News media has to be used the right way. And our diplomatic department very actively burning the lines and directing or trying to direct works in our benefit.
            Instead of show off in front of Russian embassy, to which Russians are sensitive and easy to mislead into blocking their opinion as it is simply anti Russian act, there could be a huge public demonstration at Armenia/Russia brotherhood monument with effigies of Russian military business killing that relation.
            Calling Russia to honor the calls of brotherhood and all the Russian blood (supposedly) spilled in 2 centuries on our soil.
            I know this sounds primitive. But Russian public moves with primitive idealistic ideas. It is very monolithic.
            Wherever Russian intelligentsia gathers on an idea, one way or another, government responds.
            And we have a good amount of support in Russian intelligentsia.
            It would not be bad idea to invite and bring some well known figures and have them in there. Sending a clear message that this behavior will hurt relations not only between us but damage Russia's reputation.

              Why the hell arent we making weapons? seriously, if a bunch of useless sheep like the azeris (whos average IQ is 84) can produce weapons and use them, then Im confident that we can build some real nice stuff. I mean for crying out loud, we are some of the smartest people in the world. We have 7 year old kids that are masters in chess....

                It's not a matter of brains, it's a matter of money... factories cost money to setup. Then you need raw materials which cost money and money to pay workers. Money for license to produce arms designed in other countries... We do produce weapons and new components for older systems but when you are at war, more should always be done, but it takes more MONEY.

                  I've noticed a few analysts, including those who mostly take a more pro-Armenian position, have been attacking the negotiations process under the OSCE Minsk Group. Armenians should keep in mind that one of the Azeri regime's main objectives has been to discredit the OSCE Minsk Group, and have it replaced with another format where Azerbaijan would have more influence. This is part of the calculation when Baku authorizes violations of the ceasefire regime. Obviously Baku would prefer to have the negotiations process regarding Artsakh transferred to something like the United Nations General Assembly, where the numerous Islamic states will mindlessly vote in favor of Azerbaijan over Armenia (see the anti-Armenia and anti-Artsakh UNGA resolutions over the past several years which passed because only thirty or so Islamic states voted in favor of Azerbaijan while the rest of the world abstained; link below) Another option the Azeris would prefer would be the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly ("PACE"), which is crawling with Turks, Zionists, Islamic supremacists, and energy corporations (pretty much a reflection of the EU itself). PACE regularly passes anti-Armenia and anti-Artaskh resolutions. When Turkish neo-Ottoman imperialist Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu was president of PACE, he forced the revival of the PACE "Karabakh Committee" despite the objection of Armenia and the Minsk Group co-chairs:

                  http://asbarez.com/68798/un-general-...s-on-karabakh/

                  http://asbarez.com/92544/pace-revive...as-objections/

                  So be careful when you come across calls to replace the "ineffective" Minsk Group. The Minsk Group basically serves to lock the current status quo, which favors Armenia.

                    It's a matter of a consumer market more than any other factor. Not my words, Seyran Ohanyan's words when I asked him. When you're a big country and you produce something, you can just force your own army to use it, and the quantity purchased justifies the research and development phase. Now the product can be poor to start with, but if the operation is financially sustainable, you have time to improve the product. Then you can even one day export it when the quality has improved.


                    However, if you're a tiny country with a population under 3 million, your own purchase isn't enough to pay for the research and development. Therefore it has to be exportable immediately. Well it's very hard with no initial funds, no factories, and no history, and a poor government, to develop weapons that are going to compete with the products of global powers which are funded by trillions and have a century of expertise.

                    (btw it's the same basic economic issue with starting a business in Armenia. since the market is so small, and low income, you often need to immediately be able to export your goods/services to make significant profit, which is almost impossible. This is the main economic issue in Armenia, not oligarchs, not corruption, not roads, etc)

                    You give some good poins Mher. But i dont agree the sitting-duck strategy gives us deterrence. There is no need to go inside azeriland to hurt them bad. Thats what rockets and artillery for. We dont even do that.

                    something else I asked Ohanyan, and I mentioned Israel has such a program with 4,000 soldiers from 70 countries. He said we've been studying their program, and are considering the feasibility of creating a similar one for us. We still haven't reached a final decision.

There can be no better use of our money.
                    I'll try to send you his information tomorrow.

                      These protests need to be cautiously welcomed as long as they are limited like today's protest and aren't hijacked by pro-EU activists. Our leaders know why Russia sells to Azerbaijan but they still rightfully tell the Russians they're not happy. These are all forms of applying soft pressure on Russia which, when coupled with backdoor diplomacy, can lead to Russia delivering even more weapons to us at favorable terms. That is the only solution to the arms buildup of Azerbaijan. We are financially weak and Azerbaijan isn't (for now) so we need to bargain better. Our leaders need to use Medvedev's or Rogozin's point of "balance" and sell to Russia that the balance isn't exactly there and that we need more weapons in addition to the $200 million we'll be receiving soon to achieve a greater balance *cough Iskander cough*.

                      The $200 million package deal of weapons is an amazing deal, just needs to get to Armenia. We will have Smerch and TOS-1A like them and that Avtobaza-M sounds delicious. Looks like we specifically chose the Avtobaza-M knowing their drone capabilities.
                      If our government was more effective, it would initiate and direct the protest covertly instead of risking it being overtaken by hooligans or people with other agendas. Anyway though, you don't really have to worry about the EU angle. I don't think anyone in Armenia has any support for it.

                      Here's a few basic things our government should strive for

                      the first, which shouldn't be a request, but a demand is the immediate delivery of the $200 million weapons, now, when we need them, instead of the end of 2017.

                      A less urgent demand, but still very feasible would be a lease of $50 mill/year for the bases in Armenia. Russia pays much more to Kyrgystan for a single, much smaller base, in a much less important location.

                      Finally, the potential of a sharing agreement for older defensive weapons on the Russian bases in Armenia.
