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.

        Armenia, Azerbaijan Pledge To Honor Ceasefire, President Sarkisian Questions Aliyev’s Commitment

        YEREVAN (RFE/RL) — The presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to work out safeguards against ceasefire violations around Nagorno-Karabakh and resume their search for a compromise peace deal during talks in Vienna mediated by the United States, Russia and France late on Monday.

        Serzh Sarkisian and Ilham Aliyev will meet again as early as next month in an attempt to revive the Karabakh peace process, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and France’s State Secretary for Europe Affairs Harlem Desir said after co-hosting the talks.

        “The Presidents reiterated their commitment to the ceasefire and the peaceful settlement of the conflict,” read a joint statement issued by them. “To reduce the risk of further violence, they agreed to finalize in the shortest possible time an OSCE investigative mechanism.”

        “The Presidents also agreed to the expansion of the existing Office of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson in Office,” it said, referring to a small multinational team monitoring the ceasefire regime in the conflict zone.

        The U.S., Russian and French mediators have for years pressed the conflicting sides to accept these confidence-building measures, hoping to reverse a steady increase in the intensity and frequency of armed incidents on the Armenian-Azerbaijani frontlines. They have been backed by the Armenian side but effectively rejected by Azerbaijan until recently. The latter has claimed that the proposed measures would only cement the status quo favorable to the Armenians.

        Meanwhile, President Sarkisian questioned Azerbaijan’s commitment to the ceasefire in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone on Tuesday after he and his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev agreed on confidence-building measures designed to prevent fresh fighting there.

        Sarkisian said at the same time that he is largely “satisfied” with his talks with Aliyev. “The president of Azerbaijan assured that his country and he personally does not aim to solve any issue through hostilities,” he told Armenia’s leading TV channels while flying back to Yerevan. “That is good but it gives us little faith because there have been many conversations before but the fact is that agreements have not been honored [by Azerbaijan] for several years.”

        “But we cannot be guided only by our presumptions and predictions because war is not the best solution,” said Sarkisian. “So we will see how events develop.”

        “We should not pay too much attention to those agreements considering our past experience,” cautioned Sarkisian. “We have had 20 meetings [with Aliyev.] We agreed on many things during those meetings. But on his return to Baku the president of Azerbaijan made totally different statements. Time will tell how events develop this time around.”

        “The important thing for us is the following: the [U.S., Russian and French] co-chairs should once again see that our aim is not to maintain the status quo and wage a perpetual war,” he added.

        Even so, the Armenian leader was hopeful that ceasefire violations will now decrease. “I don’t think that they will end starting from tomorrow,” he said. “But I hope that things will be much calmer than they have been until now.”

          You misunderstood. He said the entire "buffer zone" is 800,000 hectares and we lost 800.

            So our President just admitted that we lost just under 2000 acres of land. (800 hectares). The best way to picture that is one hectare =2 football fields. 800 hectares = 1600 football fields. Is that a loss. If no , then you need to get checked up.

                    Well look, we've covered this here since early April. We all knew a couple of positions were lost. But, again, positions have been lost and gained for the past 20 years. This isn't the first time. Also, it's not as if they took a town or a village. Just some shift on the line of contact.

                    Ideally I'm sure none of us want to give them even a single grain of dirt, but in the large scheme of things this isn't really a big deal.

                    So no, it's not a loss.

                      I would be more worried on prices of crude oil creeping up almost $48.5 instead of couple small hills. Can we put this to rest?
