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.

      Crude is up because of supply outages in Nigeria, and Canada.
      It will go back down.

        Alright...
        I'll put it this way. For Glendale people, we lost from Chevy chase to Colorado avenues north /south and from central to Glendale boulevard east/west.
        For Hollywood people... From Vermont Blvd to western and from Hollywood Blvd to melrose.
        Clear?
        And this is not as one lump territory but scattered along eastern frontline.
        This is from a territory the size of lost Angeles county. From 138 fwy up north on kern county line down to Orange County line south of long beach, and from Santa Monica to San Bernardino line east of Pomona.
        Clear?

        Though naming Glendale area could be wrong by me because the said area is all the world for some Armenians, lol

          I'm getting annoyed everytime someone keeps bringing up the issue of the territory we lost, and using that to somehow suggest, whether directly or indirectly, that we were defeated. For the millionth time, our enemy carried out a well planned attack using a good chunk of their arsenal. They utilized mercenaries, special forces, artillery, tanks, helicopters, Smerch systems, GRAD launchers, armed drones and a large amount of infantry. There is solid evidence that they deployed a jet, but it aborted the mission once we spotted it on radar as it was about 15km away. Against this massive force, the only major weapons we used were artillery , tanks and Grad rockets. We killed over 400 of their soldiers and caused them a great amount of equipment and financial losses. More importantly, they failed their objective. So we lost 800 hectares. Let's keep in mind this territory is uninhabitable. All they really have are some trenches, and maybe a slither of land that has been mined like crazy. In the process, they have gained more refugees as Terter has been turned to rubble. Also, many other villages have been depopulated. So who is the real loser here? Were all those material losses, casualties of the highest trained soldiers, and the depopulation of villages worth it for them? All they got is Lele Tepe (which is surrounded on three sides by our troops, and some high ground in Talysh. Yes it's bad we lost 800 hectares, but people need to look at the bigger picture.

            Over the years I have come to realize that the big picture eludes some people no matter how they look at it.

              Just to add to this, let's not forget also the implications this has on the ongoing political negotiations. When in the past the sheep xxxxer in chief would threaten with use of force if his demands were not met during negotiations, he can't do that anymore. If they really believed they could resolve the issue militarily, they don't anymore. From the clashes, this is the real big win for us and huge defeat for them.

                I am annoyed too to cynical behavior.
                Just picturing it maybe so hard for some and confusing.
                Ok people, let's say you have 2 bedroom home and you also have 2 bedrooms captured from your bad neighbors because of previous war. Both properties with kitchens bathrooms and balconies.
                Now your neighbor shows up with machete, ax and baseball bat to kick you out and take all.
                But you skillfully poke and take out his eye by a broom handle and shut the door. He stands there with bleeding, one eye gone on your door mat.
                He got the door mat, but he could not enter and his eye is lost.
                Who won?
                Got it?

                  If you people care so much about those 800 hectares then go and retake it yourself. Way too easy for you all to talk big on internet. The lifes of our young Armenian soldiers are invaluable while that piece of land that you all cry so much about is pretty much worthless. If a war breaks out thats a matter of a day to take back and it only has tactical meaning to take.

                      Basically Serge said it best today. He said the Azeris had 1 dead and 2 wounded for every hectare they took. He said let's assume that ratio is halved. Now use that ratio to calculate how much dead and wounded they would have to give just to take the "buffer zone."
