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.

    Ergenokon needs to be described as a terror org. (which they are)so the prosucution can conduct its investigation with less criticism.

    Re: Ergenekon run websites

    Veli Küçük is not being mentioned as number 1 in Ergenekon. And he s still in prison..

    Ergenekon do exist since late 1960's in Turkey. I recommend the book written by Can Dündar in 1996 after an extensive investigation made about the issue. It is the gladio (deep state) of Turkey and been tried to get cleared by the prosecutor Dogan Oz in 1978 who is killed after a report released by him. The books is called Ergenekon and I don t know if it s been translated in English or not.

    The support for this trial has decreased seriously after the last wave of the custodies. The society is seriously against to the way that the people is being arrested and jailed without the certain accuracy of them being guilty. Everybody accepts that anyone can be involved into this enquiry if the prosecutors have some evidences about them. But these people can have their trials and should still be free until they found guilty by the judges. One of the arrested people in the last custodies is Prof.Dr. Mehmet Haberal and he s a well known professional in the international area of organ transplantation. So letting him to keep his profession would not take the country into a military coup or exploding bombs around even if he really had some guilty behaviour in the past or not.

    So the way that the prosecutors handle this case seems a bit clumsy at the moment. This is seriously dangerous since it creates the thoughts in peoples minds that there never existed a crime organisation called Ergenekon. This powers up the hand of the people who believed in this case as a scam since from the beginning. And those people are seriously effecting the way that how the community thinks. But, I find these facts quite eventual. The main idea of this trial is to clear away the anti democratic tumors within the state of Turkey. But since democracy is not a thing that is seriously understood and digested by the majority of the indivuduals in Turkey, those clumsinesses are also could be applied by the prosecutors who are in charge of the Ergenekon trial. When they hear about something and find out some evidences, they just focus on their own tasks and take a guy away from his beautiful life. They are neither do not aware what "human" rights are. They are just focusing on their tasks and want to succeed in the trial without caring and respecting about "others" (we like this term don t we) lives. But it s the goddess of justice that they re dancing with...

    You can not be the same state that we want to demolish with this trial.

    (is this like the ring that they put on in the Lord of the rings? Would it be possible for us to throw the ring away to the deep cliffs of Mordor? Would take time I guess...We don t have Frodo's, Gandalf's, or any other fellows at the moment)

    But you are. And that s why you are failed my dear... I don t believe in the sincerity of this trial anymore. It s the war between the two rulerships and other rulership is just trying to take the power from the other. The democratic manners and ethics are not the driving force of this trial. The state may change if they can clear away the gangs and the think tanks of Ergenekon. Yes. They will do that. But as I said before, it s not the democracy winning over fascism here. It s more like fascism-x, winning fascism-y.

    My only hope is that in Turkey we would soon be having a completely renewed constitution and a completely renewed justice system with all its laws which are protecting all the components of the society against the xyz fascisms. By then we can have people being protected by the laws but not by the state or mafia or else. By then we can have a complete belief on our justice system, judges and prosecutors. By then we can convince people that AKP government is not trying to bring sheria to the country by jaling the Kemalists with the help/by taking the advantage of the Ergenekon trial. By then we can completely relax that Fethullah Gulen is not having any effect on this trial.

    I still support the trial (have to) but lost my belief in it. And this surely does not mean that I lost my belief in the existence of the "criminal" Ergenekon organisation.

    Cheers!

    ps: I know it s not related to the topic but I could not keep the muse awaited while I was searching for the exact place of this topic in this forum. Sorry guys..

    TDN still operates its discussion board but you are right Alexandro, Hurriyet has taken over.

    Bells, where is your reference?

    Konachan, I don’t like conspiracy theories as well but I hate to break it to you; Ergenekons do exist and as you see they are getting away with it, but it is OK, there was a trial so don’t worry about it.

    I hate conspiracy theories, so I really doubt that this whole "ergenekon" thing has any truth in it.
    As you might know, the alleged "number one" person of the "ergenekon organisation", Veli Küçük was released from prison, due to the lack of evidence.
    I'm sure the same will apply to the others who are currently held in prison.

I haven't seen any printed copies to compare it to the old TDN but it's target audience wouldn't stand for an overtly Islamic message so I doubt if it will have any overtly Islamic content in it.

    PanARMENIAN.Net

    Armenian Genocide new resolution to be introduced to U.S. Congress
    07.02.2009 14:29 GMT+04:00

    /PanARMENIAN.Net/ Pro-Armenian lawmakers in the U.S. House of
    Representatives, the lower chamber of Congress, are preparing to
    introduce later this month a fresh resolution calling on the United
    States to formally recognize the 1915 incidents in the Ottoman Empire
    as Genocide, the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) told
    PanARMENIAN.Net.

    The bill will be introduced by four senior members of the Armenian
    Caucus in the House of Representatives, Adam Schiff, a democrat from
    California, Frank Pallone, a democrat from New Jersey, George
    Radanovich, a republican from California, and Mark Kirk, a republican
    from Illinois, the sources said.

    The pro-Armenian lobby is presently working to garner the support of a
    large number of lawmakers as cosponsors for the resolution.
