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.

      Maybe just to force Armenia to pull resources from Artsakh.

          Second Time Soldiers: Black Panthers of Armavir return to Karabakh

          By GAYANE MKRTCHYAN -

          April 29, 2016

          Men of all ages, gathered in the courtyard of the Armavir Provincial
          Military Commissariat, give a loud military salute to the commander’s
          greeting, which is followed by response in a manly voice: “Good luck
          guys and welcome back”.

          Those who have come from the communities of the province are mostly
          former members of the Black Panther brigade who participated in the
          Karabakh war in the early 1990s, and today are again off to stand
          there next to new generation of fighting men.

          “All of us are volunteer servicemen. A part of my squad is already in
          Karabakh. Now we are taking the next group. They have a great fighting
          spirit: they are well prepared. We should be next to our children. At
          the cost of life, the independence generation kept the sacred
          boundary, which has been drawn up by the blood of their parents and
          grandparents. They are more powerful than us,” says Rustam Gasparyan,
          the commander of the Black Panther squad and a Member of Parliament.

          The squad was formed in 1989 and joined other such groups from
          villages throughout the province. In 1993, a battalion was formed on
          the foundation of the company. The Black Panther participated in
          Kelbajar, Fizuli, Kubatlu, Kashatagh defense and liberation battles. A
          total of 11 fighters of the squad were killed.

          Khachatur Asatryan, the head of the Margara village council, said that
          30 community leaders from the province are among the new volunteers.

          “The decision is ours. All of us decided to go and support our sons.
          We protect our land, our territory, our duty is to keep the peace of
          our families and not to allow the enemy to crush us in our houses, not
          to allow the border violation even by a millimeter,” said 42-year-old
          Asatryan.

          Friends, relatives and children have come to see off those who are
          leaving. They hug each other and say farewell speeches, like: “We are
          looking forward to seeing you back”.

          Razmik Malkhasyan, from the Yeghegnut village is a Karabakh war
          veteran and says that he is living to be with the children.

          “Three boys from our family are conscripts. We have to support those
          children, even though they are more courageous than us,” says the
          Malkhasyan.

          By giving last instructions to those who are leaving, Gasparyan
          repeats a parable: “A cat, even wearing a lion’s pelt, will flee at
          sight of a dog. It is not the pelt that will make a man courageous,
          but the inner fighting spirit is the important thing.”

          Analyzing the events of the four-day war sparked at the beginning of
          April at the line of contact between Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan,
          the military commander of the Black Panther says that having such a
          well-equipped army, so many troops, mercenaries, Azerbaijan suffered
          ignominious defeat.

          “Those few positions they were able to capture means nothing. In such
          cases, they must have advanced for tens of kilometers, whereas they
          were able to advance just a hundred meters, and our soldiers prevented
          them. They are the same Azeris that stood in front of us [in the late
          1980s to 1994]. They had more human resources than us at that time,
          too, had more weapons, and we were fighting against their tanks with
          rifles, but won the war. Today, nothing has changed,” says Rustam
          Gasparyan.

          Boryan Babayan, a Karabakh war veteran from the village of Lernagog,
          says that he is ready to die for his native land, and that he goes to
          finish up some work he has left incomplete.

          The commander of the squad adds: “Believe me, we, Karabakh war
          veterans, want this issue to be finally settled. We are waiting for
          instructions. We will move forward and this time we’ll definitely not
          stop. We will put an end [to this issue] at once. Otherwise, every
          time, in such situations we lose our children in the frontline. The
          victory has to be complete. We need to rely on ourselves. If foreign
          forces help us, they put forward their demands. No, we are our
          strength and hope.”

          The buses full of volunteer servicemen – full of bravado — are moving
          to Karabakh. It is the second time Armen Hovhannisyan has taken a
          group since fighting re-kindled.

          “I am waiting for my turn: when the time comes, I will go, too. And
          now, good luck and safe return to all of them. Let no one be missing
          from their ranks,” he says.

            25 years after “Ring” operation

            14:54, 29 Apr 2016
            Siranush Ghazanchyan

            Today marks the 25thanniversary of the Ring operation (Operation
            Koltso), as a result of which two villages in Artsakh were cleansed of
            Armenians.

            The operation “Ring,” launched by the special police detachments
            (OMON) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Azerbaijan, with the
            support of the USSR Interior Ministry՛s troops in April-May, 1991
            holds a peculiar place in the history of the conflict between
            Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh, both for its scope and consequences.

            The operation resulted in a complete devastation and destruction of
            more than two dozen villages of Northern Artsakh, as well as in
            Shahumyan, Hadrut and Shushi regions. It ended only after a month,
            thanks to wide publicity and condemnation both within the USSR and
            beyond.

            But the wheels of the war were set in motion. The operation “Ring”,
            which stood out by its brutality and massive violations of human
            rights, sharply increased the level of tension in the region and
            shifted the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict to a plane of military
            actions, becoming a prelude to the subsequent full-scale aggression of
            Azerbaijan against Nagorno-Karabakh.

            However, Azerbaijan failed to achieve its main goal – to intimidate
            the population of Nagorno-Karabakh and suppress their legitimate
            aspirations for self-determination. On the contrary, the operation
            “Ring” only strengthened the determination of the people of Artsakh to
            fight for their rights and freedoms.

                  I think we should consider Iran as a source for weapons. We should also learn from their achievements in self sufficiency. Working together we can compliment each others production of military goods and trade.
