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.

    The difference between American and Armenian oligarchs is that the Americans had to create the industries that didn't exist before they became monopolists/industrialists(self-made) whereas the Armenians inherited a country and system and ended up using its mechanisms to tax the local population. Notice, none of these oligarchs actually creates anything of significance. Because they can't. They're unable to think like industrialists because they're not industrialists.

    Think about people like Rockefller and Carnegie and Stanford and they're the ones who built the country's infrastructure and way of doing business. Then think about guys like Trump who simply get fat off of a system that already exists by hustling everyone. There's a reason why Stanford ended up funding a world leading research institute like Stanford University and that people like Trump ended up funding Trump University.

    Whats more is that a lot of money they take from Armenia they pretty much spend in other countries. You really can't spend 100s of millions of dollars in Armenia, but you most definitely can in the United States and the UAE. Which is where these fools take their money.

    Why don't they invest in Armenia you say? Well, they don't care about Armenia. If you woke up every day to work out and train your body to be an athlete, you'd always demand of yourself proper diet, rest, and time to train your mind and body. Right? But if you're a parasite, the only thing youre interested in is sucking the blood dry of your host. What you're primarily concerned with is that the host has no ability to shake you off so you can keep sucking.

    The sad truth is that a lot of the oligarchs simply don't care. They hate the people. Truly, they hate everyone. That's why they beat them and watch them starve. They also hate Armenia.

    Think about how pathetic the leadership is that they can't even keep a national air carrier afloat. 1. There is only 1 major airport in the country. 2. You're landlocked and have a diaspora 3 times your size outside of your borders. 3. you have at least a million people coming in and out of your country a year. How is it that they can't manage to operate an air carrier? Air Baltic seems to be able to. You know why? Because they get a chance to run a monopoly in the country, they load it up with debt, and they drive the business underground by trying to gouge passengers. BECAUSE THEY DO NOT CARE.

    It should be clear to every Armenian that NO ONE in Armenia's leadership CARES about Armenia. It's like the US republican party. NO ONE CARES.

          • Iskander missiles impossible to be downed by any Azerbaijani weapon – defense ministry spox

            Iskander missiles are impossible to be shot down by any Azerbaijani weapon, Armenian Defense Ministry's spokesman Artsrun Hovhannisyan said in an interview with, commenting on the recent statement by Azerbaijan’s Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov, claiming that the Azerbaijani armed forces possess anti-missile weapons capable of shooting down Armenia’s Iskander missile systems.

            “Zakir Hasanov stands out with his low level of knowledge, which is at lower level than the one of a platoon commander. He has shown it in multiple occasions. To put it mildly, it is impossible to shoot down Iskander missiles by any system of Azerbaijan. That country’s arsenal features Israeli Barak 8 missile system, which they have put on display. The claims also referred to the purchase of a weaker Iron Dome Weapon System. None of these systems is capable of downing the Iskander Missile,” the spokesman noted, adding that the U.S. Army officers having the most powerful missile defense systems like Standard, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and Patriot, do not confidently claim about downing Iskander missiles even after those weapons undergo multiple modifications.

            “They (the U.S. military) openly point out the great danger and invulnerability of this weapon, however Zakir Hasanov has already overcome that weapon. On the other hand, there is nothing surprising when this is stated by a person with a very low level of professional knowledge and known for his empty talks,” Mr. Hovhannisyan added.



            • according to a number of experts, if, in 1993-2008, Azerbaijan had adopted weapons in Ukraine, now Ukraine, concerned with the long-standing opposition resistance of donbass, looked forward to some response from Azerbaijan. Hence, the year statement by Peter Poroshenko that Ukraine does not recognize nagorny karabakh and welcomes the similar position of Azerbaijan on Crimea. " Military technical cooperation has always been one of the main components of our cooperation. Today we appeal to Azerbaijan for assistance in the supply of certain weapons and ammunition ", said in February 2017 the ambassador of Ukraine in Azerbaijan Alexander Mischenko...
              .... the only problem is that baku has little to offer a Kiev of combat equipment, as it carries out large-scale purchases. Not only in Russia but also pakistan and Israel. However, some Ukrainian experts say that Azerbaijan may well be able to help Ukraine with ammunition in the there warehouses...
              ... the supply of ammunition is difficult to trace, but if the serial number of the missile is through the militia and dnr militias, Baku will be in trouble. And it is unlikely that there will be a military-technical cooperation with Moscow to sell small shipments of ammunition to Ukraine...

              Стоит ли поставлять реактивные боеприпасы Азербайджану, если они могут оказаться на Украине?

                    That was a stupid move. A defiance to US/NATO for pulling their Patriot missiles from turkey few years ago.
                    They first threatened with a Chinese system that they backed off, now it is S400.
                    Not sure whom they will used it against in defense? Russia, NATO, Shekelist, Iran?
                    To my knowledge the S400 cannot intercept any Iskander missile.

                      Armenian Conscript’s Letter to Azerbaijani Friend

                      A short time ago, an Armenian army conscript soldier gave a Russian-language letter to an correspondent and asked him to transfer it to his friend in Azerbaijan, whom he had met in Georgia, and/or to publish it on the website. We decided not send the letter to the addressee through social networks as it could be dangerous for the recipient.

                      Read the English translation of the soldier’s letter bellow:

                      – Dear friend,

                      I’ve been drafted into the army, which means that I’ll have to spend two years in a place which I deeply hate. We’ve talked quite a lot about the conflict between our countries, and I know that you share my views on the matter. I am therefore writing now to remind you of the following: among many nationalists, Nazis, pseudo-patriots and others alike, I am now also serving [in the army]. Whatever you hear about the Armenian nation or the Armenian army, know that I am there, too. With the greatest disgust and without a choice.

                      The only somewhat comforting thing is that in two years I will be free and will not have any duties imposed on me.

                      Good luck, my brother, and know that there are many of us out there.
