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.

    Yes, I remember reading that article as well. Another point that stuck out for me was that they watched arabic tv and listen to arabic music. Also, some said they'd want to return to Iraq if it clamed down there.
    For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
    to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

      The Danger of Syrian Situation

      The Syrian opposition that the West wants to replace Assad is dangerous for Armenians. They are Turkish pawns, with their headquarters in Turkey, and their army supported and based in Turkey. A Syria led by this opposition may very well become a Turkish pawn, not to mention the fact of Sunni connection between the two. It should be evident that Assad is someone we need to hope stays in powers, our allies also stand by him (Iran and Russia).

        Turkey right now is playing a very dangerous game in the region, it's already backfiring and will create more enemies for Turkey in the future. Now that Russia and China vetoed the UNSC, it is getting really dangerous for Turkey. Because everything it is doing is against Chinese and Russian interests.

          and against Iranian interests. The more Turkey alleniates itself with Russia/Iran the better for us. It's already sour with Israel and EU, so let's hope this backfires more for them, so they are isolated more.

            Here is an nice article:

            Another threat against Turkey from Iran

            February 06, 2012 | 14:53

            Iranian Major General Hossein Salami voiced threats against Ankara.

            Salami told Fars haber agency that the countries, territories of which are used by the enemies of Iran, would be attacked, Turkish Milliyet reports.

            Turkish press considers this statement as a threat agaisnt Ankara, because the troops of U.S. and NATO are located in Turkey.
            Turkey right now thinks it is ready to play with the big boys again, hope they will be smacked down really soon.

              Syria is an important nation geostrategically and the Turk does not want Iraqi oil to reach the Mediterranean via Syria. Assad is now facing a foreign backed rebelion by Sunni Islamists. Which is why the Christians in Syria support Assad. As they worry that the Islamists will turn Syria into another Iraq.

                Another testament to the fact that Sunnis often are against our interests. It seems Shia's have treated Christians better.

                  Re: The Danger of Syrian Situation

                  What do you guys think of Assad's violent crackdown? I think itís hard to deny that he is committing human rights violations, though the severity of which might be exaggerated. Do you genuinely support his actions, or is he simply a necessary evil, that is a preferred option over the western pro Turkish puppets who will likely destroy the Armenian community?

                    Erm, it is not Turkey or the Islamists who will turn Syria into another Iraq, it is AMERICA that will turn it into another Iraq. Which is why, once it starts, most Armenians will immediately shut up about it - just like they did over Iraq, even though America was responsible for initiating what amounted to the genocide of Iraq's Armenian population.

                      Genocide of Armenians? Can you provide some sources?
