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.

      I am sure they have some, maybe not in the $33 bn. Most is invested in fixed tangible assets that are "managed" from Britain.

        The question is why now and what are their objectives with the timing. A desperation to reach Iran from the north? Not much of a British objective. More like oil monopoly that might be threatened with Russia? Who knows what goes in their background dealings.
        George Soros is a target for NeoCons and Conservatives largely because he finances open government NGOs and is pro-EU. The reason he is a target is because his NGOs keep exposing corruption from Hungary, to Azerbaijan, to Russia. The conspiracy theories surrounding him are more exaggerated than anything.

        I mean look at what the Azeris are saying. There is a conspiracy between British Intelligence, a rich Hungarian Jew, the Armenian Diaspora in the US, and martians from Mars. Really. What kind of conspiracy? To simply exposing the truth? Give me a break, man.

          Check his bio. He come from the British school of enslaving people. When you start making sense of the world power/money and control you will see they all lead to Britain with Shekelists fronts.
          During Yeltsin time where did the Russian Shekelists got their initial $ to buy all of Russia's natural resources? When Russians tried to regain their country where did all the same shekelsists took refuge? The same scenario goes for 300 years since the start of Shekelists money people moved from Germany to London. Not a coincidence it was the Brits that establish the state of shekelistan in the ME. It is alwaythe same scenario ... The front man is a money man with humanitarian flags to open door to control backed by Brits.


          • Nationwide map of Syria (September 5, 2017), Deir Ezzor siege lifted

            By Andrew Illingworth

            Click here to see a HD version of this map.

            BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The month of September has started off well for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and other forces aligned to it in the war against the Islamic State terrorist group.

            Today, the Syrian Army officially lifted the siege on pro-government forces and civilians inside the strategic city of Deir Ezzor after three years of them being isolated far behind ISIS lines.

            The Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces and the 17th Reserve Division advanced along a strategic back-road running south from Resafa (in the Tabaqa region) to reach the 137th Brigade Base on the western outskirts of the city.

            At least one or two ISIS counter-offensives aimed at reimposing the siege can be expected and may, possibly, temporarily succeed. Any chances of re-besieging the city for an extended period of time is highly unlikely.

            Despite reports yesterday and this morning that the town of Ash-Shula (about thirty kilometers west of Deir Ezzor city) was liberated, the reality stands that the town has still not been entered into by pro-government forces (even the latest Hezbollah map shows this). In any case, the Syrian Army units advancing along the M20 highway are at the western outskirts of the town and the Tiger Forces are close to it from the north.

            Finally, it can be clarified (as this map shows) that all ISIS gains in southeast Raqqa Governorate were reversed by the Syrian Army who have re-secured key settlements like Ghanim al-Ali and Abu Hammad. Pro-government forces currently stand just a few villages short of the strategic Euphrates-based town of Ma’adan.

            ALSO READ VIDEOS: Russian cruise missiles obliterate ISIS positions in Deir Ezzor

            The rumor that ISIS retook Ghanim al-Ali for a second time in one week and pushed government forces north along the Euphrates all the way beyond Subkha village was started by a pro-ISIS social media account that poses as being pro-Iraqi Ba’athist.

              "Azerbaijan Set to Sign New Deal With BP on ACG Oilfields-Agency

              BAKU — Azerbaijan plans to sign a new contract with BP in the coming days on development of the giant Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) oilfields until 2050, Azertag news agency on Wednesday quoted Azeri President Ilham Aliyev as saying.

              The fields are the largest oilfields in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian basin.

              An existing deal is due to expire in 2024 and a BP-led consortium and Azeri state oil firm SOCAR signed a letter of intent in December to continue development of the giant offshore fields until 2050.


              • 7 / 09 / 2017Հունգարիան Ռամիլ Սաֆարովին վաճառել է Ադրբեջանին 7 մլն դոլարի դիմաց. «Ադրբեջանական լվացքատան» նոր մանրամասները

                Ադրբեջանի իշխանությունների կողմից փողերի լվացման մասին հրապարակված նոր հետազոտությունը հետաքրքիր մանրամասներ է պարունակում Հունգարիայի հետ այդ երկրի հարաբերությունների վերաբերյալ:

                2012 թվականին՝ հենց այն նույն ժամանակ, երբ Հունգարիան Ադրբեջան արտահանձնեց հայ սպա Գուրգեն Մարգարյանին դաժանաբար սպանած ադրբեջանցի Ռամիլ Սաֆարովին, ավելի քան 7 մլն ԱՄՆ դոլար է փոխանցվել հունգարական MKB բանկում ադրբեջանցի քաղաքական գործչի որդու անունով բացված հաշվին: Հակակոռուպցիոն Átlátszó կայքում հրապարակված զեկույցում նշվում է, որ բացահայտված նոր տվյալները ցույց են տալիս, որ իրականում Սաֆարովին արտահանձնելով՝ Հունգարիայի կառավարությունը ոչ թե ցանկացել է ամրապնդել քաղաքական ու տնտեսական կապերն Ադրբեջանի հետ, այլ հետապնդել է այլ նպատակներ:

                MKB բանկում բացված հաշիվը կապված է եղել օֆֆշորային մի ընկերության հետ, որը սերտ կապերի մեջ է եղել Ադրբեջանի կառավարության հետ: Հունգարիա գումարը փոխանցվել է Metastar Invest LLP ընկերության կողմից հունգարական բանկային այն հաշվին, որը կապված է եղել օֆֆշորային գործունեություն ծավալող Velasco International ընկերության հետ:

                Ուշագրավ է, որ 7 մլն ԱՄՆ դոլարի փոխանցումը հունգարական MKB բանկ համընկել է Հունգարիայի և Ադրբեջանի միջև դիվանագիտական հարաբերությունների սերտացման հետ: Արդեն 2014 թվականին Հունգարիայի վարչապետ Վիկտոր Օրբանը Բուդապեշտում հանդիպեց Ադրբեջանի նախագահ Իլհամ Ալիևի հետ, կողմերը կնքեցին ռազմավարական համագործակցության մասին համաձայնագիր: Հետագայում ևս երկու երկրի պաշտոնատար անձանց հանդիպումները շարունակվեցին ջերմ մթնոլորտում:

                Հունգարիա կասկածելի գումարներ տեղափոխած Metastar Invest LLP-ն այն ընկերությունն է, որը ադրբեջանական կողմից ապօրինի գումարներ էր վճարել ԵԽԽՎ պատգամավոր Լուկա Վոլոնտեին, ում դեմ Իտալիայում այս պահին հետաքննություն է իրականացվում: Հետաքրքիր է, որ նույն Լուկա Վոլոնտեն ոչ միայն Ադրբեջանի բարեկամն էր, այլ նաև Վիկտոր Օրբանի, ում ռեժիմի դեմ քննադատությունները ԵԽԽՎ պատգամավորը որակել էր որպես ոչ այլ ինչ, քան «վհուկների որս»:

                Velasco International-ը, ում պատկանում էր հունգարական բանկում բացված հաշիվը, սերտ կապեր ունի Հունգարիայի և Ադրբեջանի հետ: Բրիտանական Վիրջինյան կղզիներում գրանցված ընկերությունը պատկանում է Ադրբեջանի փոխվարչապետ Յաքուբ Էյուբովի որդուն՝ Օրխան Էյյուբովին:

                Átlátszó ընկերության ներկայացրած բացահայտումներում երևում է, որ ադրբեջանական ընկերությունների հետ գործարքներում ներգրավված են եղել նաև Օրբանի կառավարությանն առընթեր հետախուզական ծառայության գործակալը, վարչապետի գլխավոր խորհրդականի ներկայացուցիչը և այդ երկրում կարևոր պաշտոններ զբաղեցնող այլ անձինք:

                Մարդասպան Ռամիլ Սաֆարովին արտահանձնելու ժամանակահատվածում Ադրբեջանից Հունգարիա կատարված գումարային փոխանցումները բացահատում են Օրբանի կառավարության կողմից նման քայլի շարժառիթները: Հունգարիայի քաղաքական ղեկավարությունը, անտեսելով բոլոր նորմերը, 7 մլն ԱՄՆ դոլարի դիմաց պարզապես «վաճառել» է ադրբեջանցի մարդասպանին, ով Բաքու ժամանելուց անմիջապես հետո հռչակվեց «ազգային հերոս» ու ազատ արձակվեց՝ ոչ մի րոպե պատիժ չկրելով քնած հայ սպային կացնահարելու համար:

                • "Southern Gas Corridor is the missing piece of Azerbaijani Laundromat puzzle

                  The corridor, one of the biggest infrastructure projects undertaken by the fossil fuel industry with a total cost of about $45bn, will carry gas from Azerbaijan to Europe. Powerful interests from fossil fuel corporations to European governments are pushing through this unnecessary project against the will of communities and threatening human rights and a safe climate.

                  The Southern Gas Corridor and its importance to the Aliyev regime is the missing piece of the puzzle and partly explains why the Azerbaijani regime is so heavily involved in lobbying at the European level and related money-laundering activities."

                  Letters: The Azerbaijani regime wants to present a positive image in Europe because it needs support for its flagship project, write four campaigners

                  "Bulgaria to investigate $3bn Azerbaijan Laundromat claims

                  Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov said he was launching an inquiry into Kalin Mitrev, Bulgaria’s representative to the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). Mitrev received at least €425,000 (£390,000) from the scheme, which has been nicknamed the Azerbaijan Laundromat.

                  Mitrev denies wrongdoing. He says the payments to his Swiss and Bulgarian accounts were for legitimate consultancy work and happened before he joined the bank’s board in London. The reports were a “doomed political attack” on his wife, Irina Bokova, the director general of Unesco, Mitrev said.

                  At stake is the future of the controversial southern gas corridor, the largest energy project the EU is pursuing together with Baku. Records loans in European public money are being considered for sections of the pipeline, which will transport gas from Azerbaijan to Italy. BP and Azerbaijan’s state-owned energy firm are key partners.





                    Where are our resident Rusophiles? How do you like being told where to sit?

                    "If the Armenians give it a good thought, they will understand that Russia's rapprochement with Turkey deserves a welcome, rather than condemnation for a very simple reason: Moscow and Ankara get closer to each other not so much politically as economically, and Armenia can benefit from it. After all, its border with Turkey is closed, so why not ask Putin to help mitigate Erdogan's position?"

                    How do you like that! Forget the slaughter of your forefathers, and you should understand, Russia does things that benefit you. What a bunch of xxxxsuckers these Russians are! So glad the US is sanctioning them.

                      The "National Enquirer" of Russia. Even some of the articles have some truth to them, this attention seeking news outlet is at the bottom of the scale. The garbage outlet that needs attention.

                      " has produced outlandish articles with headings like “Aliens forced Americans out from the Moon”, “Time machine built in Europe, Russian scientists say”, “Time can be turned back”, “Alien and human skulls found on Mars”, "Nuclear strike hits Yemen", “Boriska, boy from Mars, says that all humans live eternally”, "Autotrophs: new kind of humans appears who neither drink nor eat", “Russian man to become exclusive owner of Earth's atmosphere and clouds”, “Nazi Germany achieved its technological advantage with aliens’ help”, “Poland to start WWIII against Russia. Funny and scary at the same time” and “Russian miracle water can cure cancer and restore youth”.

                      Pravda staff members often engage into heated discussions with their readers, often throwing insults and profanities at them, like "Go call pedophile to the sorry silly sh*t *ucking squirt that sired the syphilitic stinking sow that sh*t you, you foul-mouthed uncouth guttersnipe". The Pravda staff sometimes modifies comments made by readers."
