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.


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.

    Is there any reason why we cleared the mines on the frontline ?
    We saw how useful they were during the april-war.

        Frontline is the 1st line that separates NKR from Azerbaijan. The cleared areas are pure agricultural lands not frontlines.

          So if one day Halo Trust leaves NKR, we have our own deminers.

          2016: The difference we made in Karabakh

          Thank you for supporting humanitarian landmine clearance in Nagorno Karabakh. As we work to ensure Safe Steps for the people of Karabakh, this past year proved to be crucial and hugely productive.

          Together in 2016, we:

          Cleared 24 minefields to protect and benefit over 4,700 Armenians
          Returned 226 acres of former minefield to families for farming, improved access to water and roads, foraging, and wood-cutting
          Provided emergency clearance, responding to 170 call-outs to destroy explosive ordnance
          Destroyed 159 mines, 165 cluster munitions, and 79 other explosive items including two aircraft bombs
          Educated more than 10,000 people about the dangers of mines and explosive remnants of war
          Hired and trained 60 new Karabakhi staff, bringing our total staff in Karabakh to 168
          Ran the first crowdfunding campaign to clear a minefield; making Myurishen village safe
          Raised over 20% of the $4m required to make Karabakh Mine Free

          These are just a few highlights. Every day, our Karabaki staff are working tirelessly toward one goal: a safer and more prosperous Mine Free NK by 2020.

          We are grateful for your support towards this end.

          Yours in demining,
          The HALO Trust

              The region is hot with the regional powers or wannabe powers. Adding Brits (oil interest) U.S. (Israel interest) to the equation, will make the Caucasus the hottest sport on this planet.
              I see the U.S. penetrating the region like a dik from georgia to azeristan to shake up the region. The two turkic "nations" as indecisive, flip flopping by the month in different directions. Georgians with mental issues assuming they are going to confront Russia with their Russian armaments.

              - turkey wants to control the region and eradicate the Kurds
              - azeristan wants its Karabakh with a monopoly of oil/gas pipelines to the EU
              - Russia keeping it shrinking influence
              - Armenia security from the two turks
              - Iran fear of invasion
              - Georgia wants to be EU/NATO

              ^^ A mess, mostly caused by the two turkic people

The more these (3) idiots will play their games, the more we will get free armaments from Russia.
                Georgia keeps playing their anti-Russia and anti-Armenia game. Instead of cooperating with Russia for its long term benefit, they continue to set them selves up for another confrontation. In the long run, Armenia needs our train to pass through Abkhazia and we need Georgia to have a more balanced approach to their policies in the Caucuses.


                • Re: Nagorno-Karabagh: Military Balance Between Armenia & Azerbaijan

                  Georgian nationalists are still sour over Abkhaz Armenians siding with the separatists. They don't understand that the outcome of shelling Armenian villages is Armenians not liking you anymore. However, the misdeeds of some of those Armenian volunteers were shameful and I can understand why Georgians might have a hard time trusting us again.

                  They need to understand that the actions of bandits does not represent a whole nation.

                  Once they get over ancient history, then they will take up a balanced and rational policy towards Armenia. Armenians must also show them that good relations are important to have with Armenia. That way, they will be less likely to f Armenia over.

                    Lori, I have not read much into what the Armenian volunteers did in Abkhazia. I know approx. 30% of the population was Armenian at some point.
