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.

    Re: Free Palestine - The Struggle

    .


    I have been following an interesting historical documentary about Giligia (Armenian TV).

    The Giligian Kingdom had massive coastal fortifications, had a navy yet it did not survive.

    The sad reality was that the odds were stacked too much against it. So is the situation with the Palestinians .


    On the other hand the Israelis have ( currently) all the odds in their favour.

    What is the difference between blockaded while a land-locked country and blockaded while having a SEA.

    I would suggest the answer cannot be a SEA, it has to be something else, even a number of something else-es.

    I would like to draw an (inverse, whatever it means ) parallel with the situation vis a vi Armenia(ians).

    The Gaza people (State) have a SEA which Armenia does not have.
    Maybe all those fellow Armenians who think having a SEA is a panacea may wish to reconsider their views again.
    I do not wish to bring part of our history where we DID have a SEA which did not prevent our state from collapsing, I have in mind of course Giligia.

    Of course the answer is deeper (than a SEA).

    PS. I feel sorry for the Palestinians with SEA or not SEA.

    Yeh i would say you nailed the nail on the head there. If you can get away with massmurder then hey might as well get ratings out of it from a bloodthirsty society you created. A good question is who or what is going to stop these bastards?

They got rid of Iraq, they got rid of Libya, they got rid of Egypt, they have all but got rid of Syria, and the rest are isolated or are basket-cases. Part of the plan will be to reveal how puny and fanatical Israel's neighbours now are, so that America can disown those countries and their (Israeli-plotted) "Arab springs". This is the purpose of the present bombing of Gaza.

    Let's hope Hamas can successfully deal with the Zionists!

This same pattern seem to repeat itself to me.
    Yep, and usually around election time...

    One day after a tacit agreement was reached by Israel and Gaza leaders, Israel assassinated the person who they made the agreement with and are now bomboing all of Gaza. There is no question Israel has no interest in peace and all it wants is to kill the rest of the palastinians on their lands and take over what remains of the Palastinian nation. The parallels between what is happening to the palastinians and what happened to us are very evident.

    Israel's Iron Dome system fails to stop Palestinian rockets: Israeli report

    More than 130 Palestinian rockets have been fired towards Israel over the past 24 hours, revealing the inefficiency of Israelís Iron Dome missile system which has intercepted merely 27 of them.

    http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/11...-gaza-rockets/

    The comments at the bottom are worth reading, especially the monetary value America and Israel spent on the missile shield system:

    Cost of the Iron Dome: $50 million per battery and $62 thousand per missile. Cost of a Hamas rocket: $1 thousand. Iron Dome = FAIL

    Each Iron Dome battery can hold 60 missiles. Total cost of a fully loaded battery: $53,720,000. So that is 60 Iron Dome missiles against 53,720 Hamas rockets.
