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.

      You would be in that state too if the Russians gave your enemy Iskander system and Kerry from the American side doesn't love you any longer. I think the Armenian government should send him a big teddy bear while he waits for oil prices to come back. As for Mehriban not feel neglected, we should send her some knee pads for her European red carpet visits. No more carpet burns for her.

      Those look like carpet burn knees to me

        Defense Minister Wants Bigger Role for Armenian Army

        http://asbarez.com/155511/defense-mi...armenian-army/
        “Given the environment our state is in, the region, the existing political challenges, it’s obvious that a large army will remain part of our reality,” he told the Armenian parliament. “Therefore, we need to understand two important things. First, how to ensure that the army…turns from being a very heavy burden on our state and economy into a leader and locomotive of that state and economy?”

        “That means the entire population, not just those who serve in the armed forces, should have many scientific, economic, industrial or other projects related to the army,” he said. “In that sense, the army can become a solution, rather than a problem.”

        “And the second important component is that the army must turn from a mere mirror of the society into a school and workshop of the society. That is, a soldier demobilized from the army should be much more patriotic, better educated, stronger and combat-ready than those young people who are called up by the armed forces,” Sargsyan added during the Armenian government’s question-and-answer session in the National Assembly.

        The U.S.-educated minister did not give further details of the transformation advocated by him. He said only that both President Serzh Sarkisian and Prime Minister Karen Karapetian agree with his vision for national defense.

        Sargsian, 41, was named Defense Minister on Monday as part of a government reshuffle that followed the September 8 resignation of Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamian. Introducing him to Armenian Defense Ministry staff, Sarkisian said the new minister will have to focus on a broader range of tasks, including “military-political diplomacy,” military education and social security of military personnel.

        “The defense minister must deal very little with day-to-day activities of troops,” the president said.

        Armenian Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan on October 5, 2016
        Hello Gentlemen. I have not logged on for ages. I would like to say that I am worried about relieving Seyran Ohanyan as Defence Minister. If we had one legit, confidence giving, non corrupt, and decent member of the Armenian Government it would have been him.

        I really don't know anything about the new Defense Minister, and I do wish him well, but to be honest I'm worried about his ability to make proper decisions in a timely manner.

          Hopefully he'll be able to do a good job, but we won't be able to know that until he tested by a serious situation like April. If that recent article was right, that could be as soon as some time this month. Does anyone know what Seyran Ohanyan's current position is now? Retired? Or does he still have some different job?

            I am not so sure with some of your characterisations of Seyran Ohanyan.
            He certainly has been a symbol in the minds of the people for moral, the feeling of being in safe hands.

            Unfortunately there were/are issues which he is answerable, some outside his control at the time
            but answerable all the same as the highest official of defence.

            Firstly he has served well but he has been too long at his job. That is unhealthy for an institution.
            We should never rely on one man.

            Him being mentioned as potential future President would unnerve at least one person
            who has his eye on that job for as long as he can stand up even on crutches ala Brezhnev.

            Now more serious staff.

            The April war concluded as it did only thanks to the self sacrifice our boys who did not yield to the surprise attack
            The supporting infrastructure had serious issues.
            Poor chain of command, corruption which effected supply to the front lines as well as such strategic issues as the undermining of our military/industrial complex.
            This cannot be argued, all you have to do is look at the sackings at the MOD.
            Good management sacks officials before a war not after a war.

            Another point is that as a tradition in the military, no General keeps his position/duties after loosing a war.
            Like it or not we cannot call the outcome as having won,
            Only the outcome was not as bad as could have been, however only thanks to our boys on the front line.

            Any arguments about this being a fixed war etc, He is in the best position to know/find out.
            If he was not party to that he should have initiated military tribunal. If overruled he should have resigned.
            If he was party to that, then God save us.

            Lastly as just about everybody is aware of the mansions ministers and government officials have been building which is impossible to justify those individual salaries.
            The system is so shameless, stolen money is not in kept in some secret account but brazenly flaunted, almost one-upmanship.
            Sadly he is among them.

            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

              Not strictly Military Balance Between Armenia & Azerbaijan issue but what is hanging from behind the dress.

                No my friend, you are wrong. Those are red knees, but not from European carpets.
                They have to do with Lukashenko and dogy stiles.

                  It's not behind the dress. Most likely it's the wool ball that I was talking about, just ready to fall down

                      An interesting photo just popped up online.
                      One of our guys in a T-90A tank. The T-90A is different than the T-90S we got in the biathlon. The S is the export version, while the A is the Russian Army version. The interior of both versions are different.


                      For comparison, here are some T-90A interior photos.
