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: Armenia-PKK

    By far the oldest leak out of the American embassy in Yerevan to appear on WikiLeaks (dated 1993).
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    C O N F I D E N T I A L YEREVAN 002697


    E.O. 12356: DECL:OADR
    TAGS: PINS PREL PTER AM TU
    SUBJ: PKK "SUPPORT" FROM ARMENIAN SOURCES

    REFS: A) STATE 220237 B) YEREVAN 1701 C) YEREVAN 0165

    1. CONFIDENTIAL - ENTIRE TEXT.

    2. REFTEL (A) ASKED FOR A REPORT ON "POSSIBLE PKK-
    ARMENIAN" LINKS AND INSTRUCTED EMBASSY YEREVAN TO
    "CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE SITUATION CLOSELY AND TO KEEP
    US INFORMED." WE RAISED THE SUBJECT WITH FOREIGN
    MINISTER PAPAZYAN JULY 26 AND HE SAID THAT HE HAD BEEN
    ASKED THE SAME THING BY JOURNALISTS DURING HIS RECENT
    TRIP TO THE U.S. HIS ANSWER IS (AND WAS) THAT "THERE
    ARE NO LINKS OF ANY KIND BETWEEN THE PKK AND THE
    GOVERNMENT OF ARMENIA, ALTHOUGH THERE MIGHT BE SUCH
    LINKS BETWEEN CERTAIN OPPOSITION GROUPS SUCH AS THE
    DASHNAKS." WHEN WE ASKED HIM WHETHER HE WAS TALKING
    ABOUT THE DASHNAKS HERE OR THOSE AT PARTY HEADQUARTERS
    IN ATHENS, HE REPLIED "THERE'S NO DIFFERENCE."

    3. THIS REPLY IS CONSISTENT WITH RESPONSES WE HAVE
    GOTTEN FROM SENIOR GOA OFFICIALS FOR MORE THAN A YEAR
    NOW, NOT ONLY REGARDING THE PKK BUT ALSO REGARDING ALL
    SORTS OF TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS, AND PARTICULARLY THE
    ASALA. REFTEL (B) WAS THIS EMBASSY'S ATTEMPT TO TRACK
    DOWN THE BASIS OF RUMORS IN TURKEY ABOUT A PKK MAGAZINE
    BEING PUBLISHED IN ARMENIA. IT TURNS OUT THAT THE
    MAGAZINE ONLY PUBLISHED TWO ISSUES, THAT THE VAST
    MAJORITY OF THE KURDS IN ARMENIA ARE NON-MUSLIM (AND
    APOLITICAL) YEZIDIS, AND THAT THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF
    THIS MAGAZINE - ALTHOUGH PRONE TO EXAGGERATE THE LEVEL
    OF POLITICAL CONSCIOUSNESS AMONG ARMENIA'S SMALL
    KURDISH COMMUNITY - ADMITTED THAT THERE WAS NO PKK
    ACTIVITY INSIDE ARMENIA. (COMMENT: THIS MAKES SENSE;
    AT A TIME WHEN THE GOA IS TRYING TO DO ALL WITHIN ITS
    POWER TO ACHIEVE NORMAL RELATIONS WITH TURKEY, WHY
    WOULD IT WANT TO PROVOKE TURKEY BY ALLOWING PKK
    ACTIVITY WITHIN ITS BORDERS? FURTHERMORE, THE GOA IS
    MAKING A MAXIMUM EFFORT TO CONFISCATE WEAPONRY OF ALL
    TYPES FROM CIVILIANS AND PUT IT INTO THE HANDS OF THE
    "PROPER" AUTHORITIES; WHY WOULD IT COUNTENANCE THE
    TRAINING OF TERRORISTS WHO COULD ONE DAY BE TURNED
    AGAINST ANY TARGET OF OPPORTUNITY?)

    4. REFTEL (C) WAS AN OFFER TO DEMARCHE THE GOA ABOUT
    THE ALEGED PKK PRESENCE IN A SPECIFIC REGION AS
    REPORTED BY EMBASSY BAKU IN BAKU 0070. ACCORDING TO
    OUR RECORDS, THE DEPARTMENT NEVER REPLIED TO THIS
    MESSAGE. BUT WE HAVE BROUGHT UP THE SUBJECT OF
    TERRORISM ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH A RANGE OF SENIOR
    OFFICIALS, ALL OF WHOM CONDEMN THE ASALA AND ALL OF ITS
    COUSINS IN THE TERRORIST WORLD. THEIR ONE REGRET IN
    THIS AREA IS THAT -- AS THEY SEE IT -- THERE IS
    PRECIOUS LITTLE THEY CAN DO IF, FOR EXAMPLE, THE
    DASHNAKS LIVING IN IRAN WANT TO FINANCE, TRAIN, OR
    EQUIP TERRORIST UNITS OPERATING - ILLEGITIMATELY AND IN
    DIRECT OPPOSITION TO GOA POLICY - IN THE NAME OF THE
    ARMENIAN PEOPLE.
