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.

        Why aren't ZU-23 AA guns added our front line positions?
        These guns have played a big role in Syria.
        The 23mm can pierce a BMP and even some tanks.
        The weapon is cheap, abundant and easy to operate.

        Here's a ZU-23 on a Greek island near Turkey.

          You mean "Ankara" as in the mighty, advanced, refined, powerful, turkish military for over (3) months is still trying to take over a dusty town in the desert of Syria (al bab) held by idiots in PJs and AKs? The more these (3) idiots will play their games, the more we will get free armaments from Russia.

            Exclusive: Tbilisi chooses confrontation with Russia - USA build military base in Georgia

            The US is building a new military base in Georgia - a provocation for Russia. This was the end of the Georgian Defense Minister and the US Chief of Staff at the US military base in Hohenfels, Germany. RT German spoke with analysts who warned that the Caucasus would become a powder barrel with irreparable consequences.
            By Ali Özkök

            The Ministry of Defense of Georgia confirmed that Defense Minister Levan Izoria and Chief of Staff Vladimir Chachibaya were visiting Germany on 11 February. The high-ranking officials from Georgia visited the seventh US military training base of the US European Command in Hohenfels, Bavaria. There was also a meeting with the commanding General of the US Army in Europe, Ben Hodges, and the chairman of the US Command for Military Training, Brigadier General Antonio Augusto .

            The US discussed the state of defense of the South Caucasus with the Georgians and agreed with them to strengthen them. The Georgian Defense Minister said it was a "historic day" for the Caucasian Republic. This was mainly because the US had discussed with Georgia for the first time details about the establishment of a standby center similar to the US military base in Hohenfels, which is to be in Georgia. Its mission is to "train Georgian soldiers and expand the preparedness level of Georgian forces through international support," said the Georgian minister to the popular Georgian news portal Agenda.

            RT German asked the Georgian Embassy on Tuesday for an opinion. There was no official answer. In a telephone conversation with RT German, Georgian press attaché to Berlin confirmed only existing media reports and referred to the military attaché for further questions, which, however, is currently not available.

            US General Hodges praised the Georgian soldiers who are currently being trained by the US Army in the German Hohenfels. He was "impressed by the courage and level of their readiness". Hodges positively assessed the new defense reforms in Georgia with regard to the increased cooperation with the USA and commented:

              As usual stupid move from Georgians that is going to hurt them even more in the near future. Next move? Lavrov will be headed to Cuba.

                Georgians may be putting themselfs on confrontation with Russia, but a strong US base there is very much in our advantage.
                Existence of the base does not really increase danger of war more than what we got with azerbaijan now. But it will bring a balancing check to two sided control in Caucasus, Russia and Turks. If turkey really worsens relations with NATO however unlikely, (but who knows, crazy er dog an), then Turks may cook up something with Russia that is bad for us.
                They should not be left as sole military influences in Caucasus.

                  Second Place, Series Winner,
                  Exposure Awards 2017

                  For the past 11 years I have lived in Stepanakert, the capital of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, with my wife and two children. On April 2nd, 2016, the military conflict that brought the republic to life started again. On that same day, I was drafted as a private into the Karabakh Defence Army and placed at the most distant border outpost.

                  On that day I “died”: died as a person, as a photographer, as a citizen...I accepted the thought that I wouldn’t exist in this world anymore. I turned into a tiny spot…next to nothing. I hardly thought about home in the beginning; I almost forgot about it. It was the only way not to go insane. I had to defend this outpost and survive. Period. And then I found the way out of this inhuman situation, maybe the only way: I started to live for the sake of my younger brothers-in-arms, the 18-year-old conscripts. This is the point where I regained myself…the small spot that I had become started to grow.

                  I had no choice between the rifle and my camera — it was my duty to hold the Kalashnikov. Yet still I took photos. These images tell the tale of my journey, from photographer to combatant and back to photographer again.
