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.

    I believe they will attack and its going to be intense- I think they'll throw whatever the have perhaps at on location to try and get some substantial gain. This could be it- the last battle.

      We did not start this war but war is upon us. Instead of waiting for another attack that will kill more of our boys we should kill theirs now. A preemptive attack like this will make them think twice about massing troops close to border. Every day our boys die, this is war and has been for a year. It is just stupid to give them the initiative every time.

        I disagree. You don't need huge resources to shell some 152mm artillery rounds to disrupt their dupply lines and gatherings.

          No doubt we should be hitting the concentrations- disrupts their plans, hurts their morale, and having all those men and material concentrated in just a few locations will wreak havoc and lead to staggering casualties.

            http://news-front.info/2016/04/11/ku...ont/?_utl_t=fb


            GOOGLE TRANSLATION OF THE ARTICLE

            According to a source in the Kurdish Supreme Committee, the recent aggression of Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh region was not accidental, and had far-reaching goals.

            In October 2015, the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has signed an agreement with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a confidential agreement to hold a 1-2 quarter of 2016, a joint military operation against the Republic of Armenia.

            At the initial stage of the Azerbaijani armed forces on the pretext of truce violations by Armenia in the Nagorno-Karabakh region we had during the first eight hours of fighting to defeat the Armenian forces and withdraw to the line of Kelbajar - Zivel - Jermuk hydrological reserve. Achieving this goal would enable Azerbaijan to establish control over the border with Armenia in Jermuk region has created a threat of encirclement Armenian forces deployed south of the line Areni - Yeghegnadzor - Jermuk, and unleashed Turkey's hands to start the second phase of the operation.

            The second stage is to block the Turkish armed forces of the 102nd military base in Gyumri, the Russian Armed Forces. Having occupied the Armenian territory through Arteni - Armavir and thereby creating a threat directly to Yerevan, the Turkish group would actually deprive Russia possibility to use the power of the 102nd base. The pretext for opening a second front against Armenia Turkey was to be "the protection of the local population against Kurdish terrorists" allegedly infiltrated into the territory of the neighboring state in Eastern Anatolia. This kind of operation, Ankara has repeatedly held in Iraq and Syria.

            The final phase was planned powerful blow of Azerbaijani Armed Forces from both sides to "cut" the resulting "Jermuk projection" and to establish a joint Turkish-Azerbaijani control of the entire Armenian territory to the south boundary of Areni - Jermuk. In the future, this precedent the Turkish authorities hoped to use to provide a powerful military and political pressure on the Kurds.

            Informant in VCS believes that Turkish-Azerbaijani plan was not implemented because of the failure of Azerbaijan to get out in time to the border with Armenia in the area Jermouk reserve. One of the key factors contributing to the defeat of the Azeri group, was the fierce resistance of the Armenian armed forces to stop the advance of superior in numbers and equipment of the enemy.

            Also, the source noted that the current military-political leadership of the republic of Azerbaijan is trying to cover up the failure of the initial operation, giving occupation of two villages, Talish and Seysulan and five insignificant heights, for a grand victory.


            Kurdish Supreme Committee
            The Kurdish Supreme Committee (Kurdish: Desteya Bilind a Kurd) is a self-proclaimed governing body of Rojava (Syrian Kurdistan), which was founded by the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the Kurdish National Council (KNC), following the signing on 12 July 2012 of a cooperation agreement between the two parties in Hewlr, Iraqi Kurdistan under the auspice of the Iraqi Kurdistan President Massoud Barzani.[1] The member board consists of an equal number of PYD and KNC members.[2]

            The KSC seeks to fill the power vacuum left behind by the retreating Syrian Army in mid-2012 during the Syrian Civil War.[3] It claims self-governance for Rojava, and adopted an interim Constitution for the Rojava Cantons in January 2014. The committee's armed wing consists of the YPG and YPJ
            A few points as to the validity of this article.

            There would have to be a massive leak from Turkish-Azeri side.
            Therefore one has to ask how did the Kurdish Supreme Committee got hold of this information considering its many headaches.
            It is an anti Turkish outfit so a bit of creative journalism could be called for.

            Azerbajan having got as it appears Russian "help" why would they create antagonism to such a massive level with Russia with such a plan.


            Another perspective,
            the Russians could be feeding this information to absolve themselves of any damage to Armenia-Karabagh due to hostilities with Azerbaijan.

            Unusually the web server is based in the Russian federation, at least we know who controls the news.

            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.

              Yes we have resources for artillery shellings but let me ask this. What would happen if we start shell their military targets/bases? Not only it's gonna be a great excuse for Azeris to start the war but they will also show us as the agressor who caused the war.

                Not sure where are you getting the information we do not have resources to start a war.
                You either can have resources or not.
                Only a year ago our officials were boasting that they had received so many weapons that they had run out of space.
                Resources required to start a war and conduct a war are not massively different.

                True we do not want a war, therefore the whole fuss about the to be delivered weapons is about restraining the baboons from stupid actions.
                The talk is about smersh, Tos, and few other bits and pieces which would bring some parity compared to their advanced systems.


                PS What if we do have some strategic weapons which are stored in the dark room for a surprise if needed.
                What if we are playing the victim to justify the big punch we will give them at the appropriate time.

                  Holy crap dude. There is already a war going on. People are dying everyday. I hope to God we don't have this way of thinking in our armed forces otherwise we are toast.

                    How is that different than what we have now? Was the four day war a response to our provocation? They do not need excuses to attack, why should we wait for one? You must understand these turks do not think like us, they have no regard for right or wrong, for moral or immoral. Look at this http://www.groong.org/news/msg572466.html this kind of barbarism is rewarded in their society. They have a long record of being ruthless and breaking any and all laws. We cannot afford to just sit back and get hammered. If the enemy does not play by the rules of war then we cannot afford it either. The one thing that we should have learned by now is that the only thing that scares turks into submission is a taste of their own barbarism. Slay them, give no quarter, hit the dam, snipe away, if they use civilian areas to shell us then level the whole town. This is the only thing that will stop them. The Azeris are much easier to scare off then their cousins to our west. We can and should slaughter them into submission so they will think twice about attacking us again.

                      If you really think there is a war going on then you will be so damn suprised if the real one starts.
