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.

    RIP, born 1996. I don't what to say. I don't know much of this we're supposed to accept. I don't know how far their dictator is willing to take this.

                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

                  [Լրացված] Ապրիլի լույս 27-ի գիշերվա մարտերի ժամանակ զոհվել է ՊԲ զինծառայող
                  Ապրիլ 27, 2016

                  Ապրիլի 26-ի օրվա ընթացքում Արցախի շփման գծի ողջ երկայնքով հակառակորդի կողմից ձեռնարկված ինտենսիվ հրետակոծությունները շարունակվել են նաև գիշերը:

                  Հակառակորդի ձեռնարկած ագրեսիվ գործողությունների հետևանքով զոհվել է ՊԲ զինծառայող, 1996թ. ծնված Հայկ Սամվելի Մինասյանը: Այս մասին տեղեկացնում է ՊԲ կայքը։

                  Ադրբեջանական զինուժն իր տրամադրության տակ եղած գրեթե բոլոր հրետանային զինատեսակներով, այդ թվում` ականանետերով, թնդանոթներով ու ԲՄ- 21 («Գրադ») կայաններով հայկական դիրքերի և խաղաղ բնակավայրերի վրա արձակել է ավելի քան 550 արկ:

                  Առավել ինտենսիվ հրետակոծություններ են արձանագրվել շփման գծի հյուսիսարևելյան ուղղությամբ: Հրետակոծության են ենթարկվել Մարտակերտ, Ներքին Հոռաթաղ և այլ խաղաղ բնակավայրեր:

                  Հակառակորդի նախահարձակ գործողությունները չեզոքացնելու նպատակով ՊԲ առաջապահ ստորաբաժանումները դիմել են պատժիչ գործողությունների և թիրախային հարվածներ հասցնելով՝ թշնամուն պատճառել կենդանի ուժի և տեխնիկայի զգալի կորուստներ:

                  Այս պահի դրությամբ հակամարտ զորքերի շփման գծի ողջ երկայնքով իրավիճակը համեմատաբար հանգիստ է:

                  Լրացում․ ՀՀ ՊՆ կայքն իր հերթին հայտնում է, որ ապրիլի 26-ի լույս 27-ի գիշերը հայ-ադրբեջանական պետական սահմանագոտու հյուսիսարևելյան հատվածում գրանցվել է հրադադարի խախտման 18 միջադեպ: Ադրբեջանական կողմը տարբեր տրամաչափի հրաձգային և դիպուկահար զինատեսակներով հիմնականում անկանոն կրակահերթեր է արձակել հայկական դիրքերի ուղղությամբ:

                  ՀՀ ԶՈւ առաջապահ ստորաբաժանումները, ցուցաբերելով զսպվածություն, պատասխան գործողությունների են դիմել միայն խիստ անհրաժեշտության դեպքում և վստահորեն վերահսկում են սահմանային իրավիճակը:

                  Լրացում․ Պաշտպանության բանակը մեկ այլ հաղորդագրությամբ տեղեկացնում է, որ Ադրբեջանն առաջնային գծին մերձակա բնակավայրերում իր հրետանու և զրահատանկային ուժերի համար կրակային հենակետեր է ծավալում, որտեղից հիմնականում գիշերային ժամերին հրետակոծում է հայկական դիրքերն ու խաղաղ բնակավայրերը:

                  Թաքնվելով խաղաղ բնակիչների թիկունքում և արդյունքում նույն այդ քաղաքացիներին դարձնելով կենդանի վահան՝ ադրբեջանական հրամանատարությունն արդեն օրեր շարունակ կատարում է իր սև գործը:

                  Ելնելով ստեղծված իրավիճակից` Պաշտպանության բանակը հակառակորդ կողմին խորհուրդ է տալիս հարգել իր իսկ խնդրանքով կրակի դադարեցման վերաբերյալ կողմերի միջև ձեռքբերված պայմանավորվածությունը ու նաև զգուշացնում` խաղաղ բնակավայրերը չվերածել կրակային հենակետերի` դրանք դարձնելով խոցման թիրախ:

                  Հակառակ դեպքում հետևանքների ողջ պատասխանատվությունը կրելու է Ադրբեջանի ռազմաքաղաքական ղեկավարությունը:

                      Karabakh: A renewed conflict in the Caucasus

                      https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...b0e_story.html
                      Ethnic Armenian soldiers stand in a trench at their position near Nagorno-Karabakh's town of Martuni on April 8. (Staff/Reuters)

                      By David Ignatius Opinion writer April 26 at 7:26 PM
                      STEPANAKERT, Nagorno-Karabakh

                      The military commander of this breakaway Armenian republic predicted in an interview here Monday that a fragile cease-fire could collapse within days. By that night, Azerbaijani shelling had killed two Armenian soldiers in a northern border town, amid accusations by each side that the other had violated the truce.

                      The “frozen conflict” here, stalemated for 22 years, exploded on April 2, when Azerbaijani forces attacked across the 200-kilometer front line. The Azerbaijanis seized ground for the first time since the previous war ended in 1994. Russia negotiated a quick truce that began April 5, but as Monday’s fighting showed, another all-out conflict seems perilously close.

                      Karabakh is one of the world’s least-discussed and most intractable quarrels. The mostly Armenian population violently seceded from Azerbaijan in a two-year war. Since then, Russia, France and the United States have sponsored a mediation effort, but it has been fruitless: Azerbaijan demands that land once inside its borders be returned; the Armenians insist they aren’t leaving. Rather than softening over time, anger seems to be hardening on both sides.

                      Russia is opportunistically in the middle. Moscow says it wants to broker a lasting peace deal, but it has also been arming both sides. The United States also hopes to prevent a wider conflict but has little diplomatic leverage. The Azerbaijanis, judging by their strident social media, feel emboldened by their recent offensive; the Armenians feel isolated and increasingly reconciled to what one former peace activist here described to me as a state of “permanent war.”

                      I visited Karabakh with several other foreign journalists and a member of the European Parliament on a trip organized by the Armenian government. The 90-minute helicopter flight took us over stunning mountainous terrain to this lush, isolated enclave whose name means “black garden.” During my brief visit, the place seemed a bit like Switzerland in the Caucasus — not just the mountains but also the tidy streets, hillside farms and fiercely independent people.

                      Lt. Gen. Levon Mnatsakanyan, the defense minister of this self-declared republic, said his forces hadn’t expected the broad attack on April 2. But he said there had been warning signs: Since August, 21 Armenian soldiers had been killed and 113 wounded in attacks along the so-called “line of control.” And Azerbaijan had been restocking its arsenal with new Russian tanks, Israeli drones and Turkish missiles. The Armenian side, reassured by a supposed “strategic alliance” with Russia, didn’t expect a big Azerbaijani offensive.

                      “Tactically, maybe they have registered some successes,” Mnatsakanyan conceded. “But I would say that considering all the force they used, it’s rather a defeat for them.” He claims the Azerbaijanis had lost 24 tanks in the four-day battle in early April. The two sides have radically different casualty counts, and it’s impossible to independently verify the numbers. But Azerbaijani commentary has treated the campaign as a major victory after the smoldering defeat of the 1992-1994 war.

                      Mnatsakanyan insisted that Armenian troops could defend the enclave, without Russian help: “The result of the four-day war shows that the equipment we have and our combat readiness is okay for stopping any adversaries.” If the war resumes, he says, “we will not only repel them but advance ourselves.”

                      Talking to Armenian residents of Karabakh, I came away with a sense of growing militancy here, as in Azerbaijan.

                      Garen Ohanjanyan, the former peace activist, says this latest war has changed his view about the possibility for reconciliation. After the last war ended, he helped foster dialogue with Azerbaijanis. Now, he says, he has given up on peace and wants Armenian forces to destroy Azerbaijani economic targets. In the past month, he explains, “our nation lost its illusions.”

                      “Maybe my generation became too relaxed in these past years,” says Ashot Sarkissyan, a 27-year-old who works with a local nongovernmental organization and also serves in an antiaircraft defense unit. “Why didn’t we use this time to become strong enough to deter them from a war?”

                      Anahit Danielyan, who heads the Stepanakert Press Club, says she used to try to stay in touch online with Azerbaijani journalists. Now, she says, “I’m starting to feel this hatred from my colleagues in Azerbaijan. . . . This new war has somehow changed our perceptions of each other.”

                      On the road to the airport, a visitor can see the national monument, a huge stone statue of an old man and woman — heads only, the bodies seemingly buried in the hillside. The official name is “We Are Our Mountains.” The implicit message is: We aren’t moving. What seems ahead is a long, unyielding conflict.
