"They(secularists and islamists) should mutually exterminate each other. Sorry for being too honest with you"
It is a surprise for me above words .I am shocked for your blood expectancy. So then you annonce a celebration day for extermantion.
"It's all articificial and is due to the fact that Turkey's new 'invincible' prophet Ghazi Kemal fought there"
He is not a prophet.
"you can fool Turks who are most despicable conformists to believe whatever their red sultan want them to believe "
If that was true then there was no ataturk in talk today .
"The most valuable things I learned come really not from Turks at all , but from Russians, Greeks, Armenians, Germans , even scantier French sources have told me more than the most melifluous Turkish sources"
That proves A prejudice historical doctrine .
"But tell me if you saw the monument to Liman von Sanders there, you know the "Turkish" commander in chief who promoted Mustafa Kemal to lead the 19th division ?"It's funny how the Turks boast of this victory and forget to whome they owe it.
liman von sanders attendee of sultan was a military chief official paid montly making a strategical german job .Atatürk and soldiers was defending his homeland.
"If you read my comment, you would know I was speaking of the desecration that took place between 1916-1918" Neither Atatürk nor TC is responsible for said desecration.May be we could ask sultans offspring living in various parts of europa today.
"Anachronisms again! There was no Atatürk at that time"We are talking about same person.
