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 in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc

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.

    Eurasianet: Nagorno-Karabakh: Who won the Media War?


    YEREVAN, APRIL 19, ARMENPRESS. Robin Forestier-Walker, who is a freelance journalist based in Tbilisi, wrote a long article entitled “Nagorno Karabakh: Who won the media war?” where he spoke about the difficulties of journalists faced in Azerbaijan and the media war between the Armenian-Azerbaijani opposing forces in the line of contact during the 4-day war. As “Armenpress” reports citing Eurasianet.org news site, the author of the article stated that the abilities of journalists to cover the conflict depended on which part of the border they were working.

    The author notes that many foreign journalists were able to enter Karabakh via Armenia unhindered and quickly obtain accreditation upon arrival in the main city, Stepanakert. Local de facto officials held daily press briefings, including question and answer sessions. Armenia’s public television station offered free satellite link-ups and journalists were able to travel independently in civilian vehicles outside the frontline areas. “Each morning, de-facto Karabakhi defense and local officials offered reporters escorted trips to frontline villages, such as Talish or Martuni” the journalist writes.

    On the other side of the divide, journalists found it tougher going. Azerbaijan maintains a strict policy of controlling media access, especially to areas close to the frontlines. “It also has a history of denying visas to journalists who previously have traveled without Baku’s consent to Karabakh”, the author says.

    The author of the article notes that Azerbaijan boasts considerable experience hosting international media spectaculars. Yet, a representative of one international media outlet who managed to cover the conflict from the Azerbaijani side found the government’s press management skills during the Karabakh flare-up to be lacking. Speaking to EurasiaNet.org on condition of anonymity, the journalist described a grueling, rapid-fire press tour that took journalists from Baku to the frontline as “shambolic.”
    “The international journalists there found themselves being filmed as much as doing the filming,”. “Azerbaijani TV crews were making a story about us,” the journalist said

    Daylight was fading by the time cameramen stopped filming at the first location, he continued. “And by the time we'd driven two or more hours to the next place, it was pitch black. Not great for TV cameras,” the journalist told.

    The author also stated that some journalists who entered Azerbaijan were detained or deported. "For intsnace, security officials in Azerbaijan held and questioned a television crew from Georgia’s Rustavi2 for several hours because they did not have accreditation. After intervention by Georgian and Azerbaijani diplomats, the crew was able to continue reporting. A group from Russia’s LifeNews channel was expelled for lack of accreditation and allegedly spreading claims, also featured in Armenian media, that Azerbaijan was using Islamic State terrorists against Armenian and Karabakhi forces” the author of the article says.

      Azerbaijan soon to allocate large funds for acquisition of modern weapons and equipment

      Baku. Hafiz Heydarov – APA. Under the instruction of Azerbaijan’s Supreme Commander-in-Chief, a large amount of funds will soon be allocated for the creation of additional military reserves and acquisition of the most modern weapons and equipment, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry told APA on Apr. 19.
      Azerbaijan’s ministry was commenting on the information about the collection of $6.5 million to provide the Armenian separatists with modern weapons.

      Revitalization of the Armenians following the recent developments on the line of contact between Armenian and Azerbaijani troops is of only provocative nature and, as always, the inspirational words such as “volunteers”, “diaspora organizations”, “rich Armenians” are mentioned in standard news spread by the Armenian side, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said.

      Armenian media reports of the allocation of $6.5 million for the purchase of modern weapons for Karabakh separatists are nothing more than a soap bubble, the defense ministry noted.

      “Everyone knows that the funds collected by the Armenians during marathons, charity and other events are insufficient not only to purchase new weapons, but even to feed the soldiers deployed to trenches and supply them with cartridges,” Azerbaijan’s ministry added.

      Unlike Armenia, the economic potential of Azerbaijan enables to provide the country’s Armed Forces with the country’s Armed Forces with most modern weapons and military equipment, according to the ministry.

      “Following the recent incidents, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of Azerbaijan declared that the care and attention to the country’s Armed Forces will rapidly increase. In addition, work is underway to provide the necessary final and social assistance to the families of those killed and wounded during the prevention of Armenia’s recent provocations,” the ministry concluded.

They have been up front about everything including our losses from the beginning. The only thing they exaggerated was one tweet mentioning 2000 dead azeris and I think that was probably a typo. And if losing land is all that matters to you what are you doing sitting behind a computer playing general? Get out there and protect our lands!
        Oh god here we are again. I was waiting who is going to be first one calling me Turk. But yeah i wasn't expecting it happen this fast. New trend i suppose.

            Azerbaijan confirms Lieutenant-Colonel’s death

            PanARMENIAN.Net - Lieutenant-Colonel of Azerbaijani Armed Forces Sanan Tahir oglu Akhundov died “as a result of violation of safety rules,” the Defense Ministry said Tuesday, April 19.
            Some social media users had been previously circulating the news on the top military officer’s death, listing him among the fatalities that the Azerbaijani authorities so diligently hide.
            Social media users regularly report on Azerbaijani soldiers killed in the course of military clashes with Nagorno Karabakh, revealing their names, family names and other data, thus causing great dissatisfaction in Baku.
            According to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, however, the Lieutenant-Colonel died “as a result of violation of safety rules,” and not on the contact line between Azerbaijan and Karabakh.

                We can't dany a clear fact just for not making Azeris happy. That's not who we really are. Seeing us that we are slowley becoming like them is terrifying.
                The fact remains here,
                They attacked and they gained ground. You can say they lost hundreds of soldiers, tens of tanks etc. and i believe in you but at the end we are the one who lost territory and they are the one gained territory. That's all that matters for me.
                Sorry but i can't close my eyes and cheer the so called victory. We are better then that.
                Axpers, really think about what youre saying though. They attacked and took significant losses and gained a hundred meters in Hadrut, maybe a hundred meters in Mardakert. Do you think we couldn't have done that too if were willing to take massive losses too? Bayc would it be worth it?


                To me, it's a victory because we got a chance to see their full strength and it wasn't much. We saw that we're secure. That is the victory to me. Is that hundred meters really that significant? I mean ask yourself what did we really lose? I guess we lost that 100m, we saw that we have nothing to fear, and have no reason to give up anything on the negotiation table.

                  Mher, I agree with you. This mini-war cannot be evaluated in terms of who advanced or retreated by a 100meters here and a 100meters there. Positions and hills have been switching hands since the 1994 ceasefire, including on the Armenian-Azeri border in Tavush.

                  What is significant about this engagement is that they threw their best at us in a surprise blitzkrieg (which is probably the only viable tactic for them to ever try to achieve anything against Artsakh) and got hammered. Going forward, we now know what to expect, we know we can take it, and we can be more assertive during negotiations. As a bonus, it seems like this has created a significant change within armenian society towards the better, especially in terms of desire for nation-building.

                    This is an interview by an Azery opposition radio of a prominent azery in US. They talk about how Aliev made this blunder with loss of too many of their patriots. How the current government is covering up the losses and heralding gains which do not exist. That if the government was not corrupt they would have taken all of Karabakh instead of being humiliated in last war. He urges people to wake up and clear their country of this corrupt clan (good luck, actually, hope not).

                    Aliev is in deep sh it. This war is turning into a disaster for whole Azerbaijan.
                    Instead of falling into Azery game and measuring those few meters, we should se what this war gave to both sides.
                    To Azeris it gave dispair and soon to be political chaos.
                    For us it gave a unity and confidence to fight. All those Azery billions ended up in smoke for victory.

                      We need to focus on our own shortfalls in this latest skirmish. Namely attack drones, more mines and night vision goggles for all border troops. Talking about a hill here and there is a waste of energy. I really hope we are mining the fsck out of the border. It would screw up their infiltrations by a large amount. It seems they are hell bent on capturing a live soldier.
