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.

We didn't think in 4 days close to 100 men would die. That's a death toll for an attacking country. My point is , we are on defense so we need to hold the enemy back. We don't fight fire with fire , but use some water. We are using trench style warfare but there drones capture our movements and could easily kill our men. We don't want our men to be sitting ducks in an open field. Like I said before. Secret tunnels were our men are safe should be built. Look at the problems tunnels caused in Syria. Hezbollah used them against Israel and was very effective. So when we talk death toll, yes bloody oath 100 Men are a lot. There were plenty of years of training spent on these men , some were probably elite soldiers , but the sad thing due to not upgrading the battlefield or gear etc a simple mortar killed them. Some will say this is war. True. I say it's ignorance and carelessness.

          Watch your mouth hayvan...
          I did not personally insult you.
          Your post was very provocative, trying to prove that our losses were to high compared to Azerbaijan and you bring Azeri official numbers. That makes what you're saying nonsense. Can't argue anything by enemy propaganda numbers here.
          And your example of hezbollah or Isis tunnel tactics are for guerilla warfare. Those can never work in Artsakh because it is very defined front, not like Allepo mixed up.
          Once enemy goes behind your tunnel your force is dead. Enemy can always outflank a tunnel and you are not mobile to react.
          That is what happened to French Majinot tunnel lines in WWII when Germans simply outflanked this line and French had to give up without a fight.
          Besides, you can't dig enough tunnels in 300 kilometer line to effectively cut all the enemy maneuvers.
          If you feel bad for our losses than I welcome your concern. But if you think that it was in any way our fault, then you are wrong.
          We had a very intense 4 days war. What our enemy has been trying to scare us with for all these years.
          But forcing them to end it after only 4 days and with so much of enemy losses, is remarkable achievement by us.
          I salute our military.
          Good job.

It's a sinking ship, one which Armenia has very little in connection with outside of Russia. It's rules are hardly followed, as they are picked and chosen from, as it suits the members. I know the opponents to it made such a big deal about it, and how it was going to change things, but in reality it changed nothing. It's just an imaginary club to make Putin make himself feel better, just like the many that existed before it. It can't ever realistically function like a successful economic organization based on rules and regulations when rule of law is non existent in its members states, and the ruling elite in those places are so used to doing as they wish. Russian with its declining economy really can't force anyone to do much, at least not the Belarus and Kazakestan. Armenia joined it because of the gas, and the military assistance, the Armenian community there, and in general to keep Russia happy. However, the best thing it can do is stay as independent as possible, and I believe those in charge of Armenia are smart enough to know that. The idea of a common currency is a joke, considering the currency of the other members has collapsed and Armenia's is so stable. Armenia and Azerbaijan were in the CSTO together for five years, and this is gonna become less relevant than that, so why not.



            But to be fair, if we were going to go with what Taxi drivers say, according to Armenian taxi drivers Armenia is worse than Afghanistan
            That's the best ever description of the Eurasian Union. The bad part is Armenia has been taken as a hostage by this utopia and can't even sign a free trade agreement with Iran. The EEU has to sign it collectively. Also, there is nothing to learn from these countries as far as production of goods goes. What FMCG products do these countries have compared to the EU for example? Nothing! You can't learn anything from these countries. I hope Kazakhstan forces Azerbaijan into the EEU and Armenia leaves it.

            As far as taxi drivers, the second they open their mouth to nag about something, I tell them to shut it and focus on their driving. But the terrible thing about that is that people who come to Armenia for the first time believe them and imagine Armenia is some central African nation.

              Agreed but our loss of life is far greater then there's. How we perceive things should not just be tolerated. We need to think outside the box of reality and think of ways to hurt enemy forces apart from the already known weapons they know we carry. For example ,Tunnels. Very effective in Mountainous regions. Also traps. Our forces don't need to go head on but sit back. Tactical Warfare needs to change. I believe our Army is strong but our design on the ground is old.
              Shows how far behind we are in PR

                Definitely gen1 is okay to send but those NVG's need infrared lamps to be of any use(active). Azeri's are using gen3 or higher which don't need infrared lamps (passive). That lamp on the Gen1's can be seen from far away if you had gen3's. Imagine sending something that if improperly used could cause the death of a soldier. Gen1 NVG'S are useless if not dangerous. Gen2's maybe could be useful...Better than nothing.

                    Just because tunnels are used mostly in guerilla warfare doesn't instantly make them useless, in my opinion it's the opposite. . You don't need to dig 300km's of tunnels. You can focus you effort on specific strong points
                    The Maginot line was also made using trenches. Should we stop using trenches?.... Tunnels work if the front line doesn't move too quickly. Something our Army is able to pull off.
