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.

        More Azeri hysteria ..
        By Gunay Camal

        Armenia may be planning to spray nuclear waste from its Metsamor Nuclear Power Plant over the occupied territories of Azerbaijan in a horrific “dirty bomb” attack, Adil Garibov has warned.

        The chairman of the National Nuclear Research Center said the threat recently voiced by Ex-Prime Minister of Armenia Grant Bagratyan that Armenia can use a nuclear bomb against Azerbaijan can be too real taking into account the Metsamor NPP.

        “Nuclear fuel is kept in special pools, and its use is controlled directly by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Armenia is unlikely will be able to use this fuel for other purposes, as a hot laboratory and specialized robotic technology are needed for its processing.

        However, there is no guarantee that Armenia does not use radioactive wastes for its dirty plans - the creation of radiological weapons or spraying of waste in the occupied areas, which sooner or later will be returned to Azerbaijan,” Garibov said.

        The Metsamor NPP, which has been operating in Armenia for several decades, remains a time bomb, sparking many debates. Ecologists have long been concerned that the Armenian authorities refuse to close the outdated Metsamor NPP, any catastrophe at which could kill thousands in Armenia itself, and the whole region.

        The plant poses a danger for the countries of the region and Armenia has been warned on numerous occasions to close it to minimize potential risk. A strong earthquake that occurred in 2011 in the Turkish province of Van, reminded the world of the dangers of the Armenian NPP. However, the facts and constant criticism could not force Armenia to view the situation realistically.

        Metsamor accumulated financial liabilities of 9-9.5 billion drams ($23.3 million), but the amount rapidly increased in the past few years as a result of the ineffective management of foreign loans and credits. So, Armenian side's arguments that the Metsamor NPP’s activity has an economic component and is aimed at power generation are nothing more than twaddle.

        Radioactive waste is used to create chemical weapons. Therefore, Armenia will never agree to close the NPP, even if the world community requires this, the National Nuclear Research Center believes.

        Experts say if Armenia’s reactor is not only a safety threat, but potentially a source of radioactive material for a “dirty” bomb. Several times Armenian ex-Metsamor employees smuggling the nuclear material have been caught, which raised concerns of the regional states.

        Nuclear-grade materials that are the highly radioactive U-238 can be used to produce a myriad of deadly and destructive apparatuses, not the least of which is a dreaded “dirty bomb.”

        Armenia's nuclear material could be used to arm a dirty bomb, Alexander Murinson, senior fellow at the Begin-Sadat Center and Bar Ilan University, recently wrote in an article published in Washington Times.

        “The specter of a dirty bomb is of paramount concern for security services and counterterrorism officials worldwide. Internationally, the deep alarm of officials associated with the discovery of U-238 was compounded earlier this year when a group of individuals was discovered attempting to smuggle Cesium-137, a highly radioactive isotope that is a waste product from nuclear reactors,” he wrote.

        "This adds much credence to constant complaints by Azerbaijan related to the fact that the territory under separatist control, such as Nagorno-Karabakh, is being used for all manner of illegal smuggling from nuclear material to arms to narcotics," the article said.

        "To substantially add to the threat emanating from Armenian nationals and Armenia is the presence in Armenia of an outdated Chernobyl-type nuclear reactor operating long past its original planned lifetime," the article said. "This, when taken with the news from Georgia, elevates the nuclear alarm to a new level."

          Չի կարելի սպասել, որ Ռուսաստանը կամ մեկ այլ երկիր մեզ զենք տրամադրի, մենք պիտի սեփական սպառազինություն ունենանք: Եվ դա մեզ համար լուծելի խնդիր է: Այդ մասին լրագրողների հետ զրույցում հայտնել է Հայաստանի Գիտությունների ազգային ակադեմիայի քարտուղար, ակադեմիկոս Յուրի Սուվարյանը` պատասխանելով այն հարցին, որ վերջերս շատ է խոսվում, որ մեր գիտական միտքն արտահանվում է, ոչ թե ծառայեցվում է սեփական անվտանգությանը:

          Նրա խոսքով, այսօր մեզ համար գիտական աշխատանքի գնատական պիտի լինեն ոչ միայն հրապարակումներն ու մենագրությունները, այլեւ այն, թե գիտությունն ինչ է տալիս մեր տնտեսությանը եւ պաշտպանության ամրապնդմանը: «Մենք պիտի արդյունաբերություն ունենանք` ժամանակակից, գիտատար, նաեւ ռազմական տեխնիկայի արտադրությունը ներառող», - ասել է նա:

          «Եթե ուզում ենք անկախ երկիր ունենալ, պիտի ժամանակակից մրցունակ արդյունաբերություն ունենանք, այդ թվում` պաշտպանական, եւ զարգացած գիտություն: Չարժե սպասել, որ Ռուսաստանը կամ մեկ այլ երկիր մեզ զենք մատակարարեն, մենք պիտի սեփական սպառազինություն ունենանք: Եվ մեզ համար դա լուծելի խնդիր է», - ընդգծել է նա` հավելելով, որ այս գործում գլխավորը կամքն է:

              There's a whole cabal of Israeli/J#wish PR people and lobbyists who work for the Azeris and the Turks- some of them are Azeri J#ews now living in the US; but primarily they are Israel-firsters/neocons and are happy anytime when its Christian vs. Muslims, Muslims vs Muslims etc- as long as it meets Israel's strategic goals and particularly when it hurts the Russians (as they are virulent Russophobes).

              One facet of the Azeri strategy is to get Metsamor closed down in order to hinder Armenia's energy and for no other reason- to heighten Armenia's energy constraints in tandem with the blockade. This whole banter about Armenia making "dirty bombs" and wider regional risks is a load of crap is just an excuse. Armenia is not going to unilaterally close Metsamor- especially not at the behest of Turkey and Azerbaijan. Right now Armenia is working with Russia and Norway to modernize the plant; it's here to stay. The naysayers can go pound sand.

              For the Israelis/J#ews, Azerbaijan is nothing more than a espionage base to watch Iran and stir up trouble there. For the time being, it is also a large weapons market. Israel is amoral so it will most likely not waiver with regards to Armenia.

              The funny thing is, the Israelis are so desperate for Muslim allies that they are now siding up the Turks again. The ironic thing is Iran is starting to become more moderate while Turkey is growing more islamist. What will the Israelis do about this in the future when Iran has normalized relations with everyone except Israel?

              BTW, their complaints could be self-fulfilling. Why shouldn't Armenia create nuclear weapons for its survival? The Israeli's are so hypocritical- they can have nukes but no one else, right? I tell you, Armenia has an opportunity to share UAV/Harop intelligence with Iran, etc. Armenia has a trump card here. Israel should re-analyze its position. They least they should do is mind their own business- they are not part of the region and best stay out of it.
