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.

    It will take a little more time but all front line Azeri towns and settlements will be hit; Terter will be leveled soon- the Azeris are trying to do the same to Armenian towns such as Mardakert, Talish, Mataghis. If those Azeri towns are rendered unlivable, it will create another security barrier and a further humanitarian problem for the Azeris to deal with- it will sap their morale and hurt them economically as well. Right now NKR artillery is going after Azeri artillery batteries that are often situated very close to their own civilian's homes, farms, etc. The Azeris are putting their own people in harms way.

    NKR forces were able to do this during the first war successfully.

      I thought we all knew that our boys were hitting Terter really hard? Why are you guys surprised? The only reason civilian settlements were hit was because these idiots position their weapons within these civilian populated area and then use them to attack us.

        There is a truth to that. Armenia is not the worst country in terms of corruption, etc but it has an corrupt oligarchy the cheats the country, leaders that abet them, a small economy, somewhat volatile political landscape, ineffective opposition etc..... but despite all that, Armenians will fight for each other. They did so not because of their leaders (whether it was LTP or now with Sargysyan) but in spite of them. They do so because Armenians/Armenia/NKR is fighting for its very survival and Armenians will never let themselves be slaughtered again. Armenians are tough, resilient, creative, and I believe here to stay. Armenians have lost too much for centuries and will not give anymore. This is not a dream but reality.

          Our soldiers' lives would have been easier if we progressed during the first war to that man-made irrigation canal that is 16km from our present frontline. That canal is 105 feet wide. It would have been a perfect border separation filled with water.

            The division of their people is very visible. I've read a lot of reports by various organizations that say there is a systematic policy of assimilation by the Azeri government. During the collapse of the Soviet Union, people were given a chance to live in their desired country whilst accepting Russian citizenship. Many Lezghins and Avars accepted Russian citizenship but chose to live in Azerbaijan. During the last few years, thousands of these people traveled to Russia and upon returning back to Azerbaijan they were denied entry because they do not have legal status their. As a result, thousand of families are divided. Also Lezghins and Talysh are discouraged from publicly speaking in their native tongue. One of these reports explained how it is common practice in Baku to scold minorities who speak in their langauge and demand that they speak Azerbaijani. Also many Talysh and Lezghins mosques have underwent name changes. The signage on the mosques have been replaced by ones with the Azeri language. There are also property ownership issues and various other problems. A good in length report about this can be found on the UNPO website.

              Indeed. This is why the Azeris were forced to sign a ceasefire with the NKR ( and not Armenia) in Bishkek. They saw that coming. Also, but the Spring of 1994, their were acute fuel shortages for the tanks and the Russians were in no rush to ensure further shipment. Also, with the troop strength at the time, it became ever more difficult-. NKR forces took the city of Horadiz but could not keep it. The land to the east becomes a desert plain as well. In hindsight it would have been perfect to move further east to the canal but I think NKR forces were also exhausted.

                According to my map it looks like we have Horadiz city under our control and they built another one or are there two cities with the same name?

                    No, there was always a town and a train station.
                    The most strategic one was the train station, since it used to be the link between Baku and Nakhitchevan.
                    It was filled with wagons of goods for Nakhitchevan, when we liberated it.
                    Liska was in command,.....
                    He run away, abndoning his men and the positions. We lost 20 Km, and hundreds of men.
