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.

    Vedomosti: Russia shipped four Iskander missile systems to Armenia
    September 19, 2016 - 16:23 AMT
    PanARMENIAN.Net - Two managers of the Russian military-industrial complex Rosoboronexport confirmed the supply of Iskander complexes to the Armenian Army, Vedomosti reports.
    Four missile launchers (with two missile on each) were reportedly shipped to Armenia.
    The managers added that Rosoboronexport has nothing to do with the deal: these weapons were purchased on the basis of agreements about arms shipments in the CSTO, bypassing the Russian state intermediarys, they said.
    Pictures of Iskander systems passing through the Republic Square in central Yerevan ahead of the Independence Day parade surfaced online, proving that Armenia had indeed acquired the systems.
    Armenia thus became the first foreign state to have the missile system.

        Expert: In case of real threat, Yerevan can use Iskander missile systems at its sole discretion


        As Yerevan demonstrates the Russian-made Iskander missile systems during the rehearsal of its military parade dedicated to the Independence Day, the country’s media are flooded with this news. It is not surprising, considering that Armenia has actually become the first country to receive Iskander short-range ballistic missile systems.
        Experts have different views when it comes to Armenia’s opportunities to use these missiles. Some experts say Iskander systems will become a restraining factor for Azerbaijan in the Karabakh conflict, while others say, “these missiles will not be used against Azerbaijan.”
        Military expert Alexander Perenjiyev agrees with the assertion, though with some reservation. The expert does not link the supply of Iskander systems to the threat coming from Azerbaijan.

        “Yerevan is Russia’s ally in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), and we are building a common system of security that includes various components. The supply of Iskanders should be considered in this context,” Perenjiyev told EADaily.
        In his words, Russia cannot supply Iskander missiles to Azerbaijan for various reasons, including because Baku is not a CSTO member. “Azerbaijan is just a partner of Russia, not an ally,” he said.

        At the same time, the expert admits that the supply of Iskander systems should be considered also in the context of the tense situation in the Karabakh conflict zone, the threat of repetition of the April war, and the militarist statements by Azerbaijan’s Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov saying, they are ready “to attack Stepanakert at any moment.”
        “In this sense, I think, if there is real threat to the security of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, Yerevan can use Iskander missile systems at its own discretion. The existence of Iskander systems is an essential factor. It is no secret that Russia supplies arms to Azerbaijan too to keep the military balance. However, Russia supplies arms to its ally Armenia nearly without compensation, while Baku pays for it. Such an interesting policy Russia wages in the region,” Perenjiyev said for conclusion.

          "experts" ...
          when I see the word "experts" I stop reading the article.
          These coffeeshop "experts" should retire collectively.

                YEREVAN. – Acting Defense Minister of Armenia Seyran Ohanyan on Tuesday received Adjutant General of the US State of Kansas, Kansas National Guard Military Commander, Major General Lee Tafanelli; and Deputy Commanding General of the United States (US) Army Europe, Major General John Gronski.

                The parties highly appreciated the level of cooperation between the Armenian armed forces and the Kansas National Guard and US Army in Europe.

                They stressed that the high-level mutual visits, and the US Armed Forces’ expert groups that are currently in Armenia yet again attest to the active and effective cooperation and mutual trust.

                A high-ranking delegation from the US Armed Forces will participate in Wednesday’s celebrations marking the 25th anniversary of the independence of Armenia.

                  We have to have government that tries everything in bringing Armenian/Russian relationship from servant/muster relationship to equal partners platform. This will make that relationship more meaningful and strong.
                  But that leadership has to have only national ideas in focus. Not self fullfilment and money grab.
                  While I agree with the last part of your statement I would like to remind you and anyone else reading that Armenia and Russia are no where near to being "equal partners". We have never been equal and we are not going to be equal for the foreseeable future. This expectation of "equality" is based on absolutely nothingness yet it somehow serves as a basic expectation for many on this forum. All I can say is we need to be realistic in our expectations and goals. People like Vrej1915 claim we are as important to Russia as she is to us. This is absolute garbage based on nothingness. The one thing I have learned very well from life is the importance of seeing reality for what it is and basing your decisions on it. When you depart from reality you put yourself at a disadvantage which can easily be exploited by your enemies. Basing our actions on facts is extremely important!
