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's impossible. Literally no country will ever recognise it and politically it's a bad thing to recognise Artsax right now.

          LOL

          Its about time somebody reminded them that there are more serious issues to tackle,
          like corruption, inefficient use MOD budget, fulfilling the MOD shopping list etc.

          .
          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

            Agree. Recognition by armenia or even the whole world won't solve the conflict since Azeris will never recognise it. Best thing it could do is send a message of defiance to azeris. Current situation is best and should remain so indefinitely. artsakh remains out of hand of azeris and the useless minsk group wastes 2 more decades. By then all the refugees would have been either dead or so old they would not be considered to realistically return, which is one of the pillars of the current proposals which is really bad for us. Until at least Azerbaijan implodes on itself or something else changes in the south caucus.

            In the mean time, if they start a new war we should capitalise on it and gain new territories. Enough of shedding blood to uphold this fake cease fire.

              The MoD is selling us the idea that they're buying Smerch with this loan, while I believe they're buying Iskanders.

              They will show us the Smerch we already had and tell you it was received as part of the $200M package, while keeping the Iskanders secret.


              Is this you assumption, the rummer mill or through some stronger source.

                      Military expert: Azerbaijan wishes to repeat its unsuccessful attempt to attack Karabakh
                      21:06, 05.05.2016
                      Region:Armenia, Karabakh, Azerbaijan
                      Theme: Politics, Analytics



                      Now everything is going towards breaking out of a war in Karabakh conflict zone at any moment, there being no constraining factors, military expert and Head of the Caucasus Department of CIS Countries Institute, Vladimir Yevseyev. told Armenian News – NEWS.am.

                      In his words, the number of casualties from the Azerbaijani side is of no importance. “This was said directly. At the same time, the number of casualties will be kept secret, since according to information, the Azerbaijani side is lowering the number by 20 times. In these conditions it is possible to fight for quite a long time,” Yevseyev said.

                      According to the military expert, the offensive was pushed back, inflicting great losses. “The Azerbaijani side actually managed to maintain only one high point. And thus there is a wish to repeat everything, considering the mistakes made last time. But now I think that they will not deploy their troops to the Armenian side without powerful artillery preparation,” Yevseyev noted.

                      There will be quite a lot of service ammunitions and night vision equipment at the frontline. “I would very much like the Armenian side to have more drones. Anyway, perhaps Russia could share with what it has. The situation is extremely volatile. I don’t see the steps which can prevent the unfavorable development of events,” Vladimir Yevseyev said.

                      In his opinion, what is done today is not enough. “The conflict is already unfrozen. In the conditions of unfrozen conflict it is necessary to take urgent measures to prevent the recurrence of the tragedy which took place in the beginning of April. But now everything goes towards the recurrence of the early April situation - perhaps with greater number of casualties. Besides, I think Russia could and must enhance the air defense of Armenia, since nobody can rule out the Azerbaijani side’s attempts to attack not only the Nagorno-Karabakh territory but also Armenia,” Yevseyev stressed. If they directly threaten to attack Stepanakert, they will most likely try to attack the territory of Armenia, the expert clarified.

                      “I consider the actions taken by the Russian side as insufficient. France, which is the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair, doesn’t do much either: it doesn’t completely fulfill its functions. And I think that the U.S. could do much more in terms of diminishing the possibility of conflict recurrence,” he noted.

                      In Yevseyev’s words, what was done contributed to stopping the war, but the war stopped not because Russia and U.S. interfered, but because the Armenian troops reached the positions occupied earlier. “And after that Azerbaijan was ready for talks. That is, the mediators played no role here. Nevertheless, not much depends on the mediators here. More depends on the heroic Armenian servicemen, who are at the frontline,” the expert concluded.
