Ianus, Your history seems to be limited to a Greek Orthodox version of events. Most Turks have always lived in their homeland, long before Greeks came from Southern Iran 300BC. The Armenians came from a region close. When the Greeks came much as "migrant workers". They felt into the regions the Pelasgians first settled. Then they learned much of their knowledge from the Etruscans, which related to the Thracians, Lydians and Amazones. These two groups were related to the Sumerians. When the Huns came in the first wave of Turkic expansion back out of Central Asia(yes, i said back because the populations migrated quite a bit with wars, drought, climate changes), the Huns came across Oguz that lived in the Caucasus and spoke the same language. Further west, they found ancient populations in the Balkans that spoke Turkic. The Bulgar Turks that came West also encountered the same conditions. Note, many Byzantine emperors, including Constantine(Khagan-iStan- tin) were ethnic Bulgar Turks that still worshipped the Sky Gods, like all Turks of the time.

In summary, you were fed history that was limited and did not give the whole picture. The Turks were always in Anatolia. It was always a Turkic Cradle going back to Catalhoyuk-Konya(10,000years+). There are thousands of artifacts, statues, runic Turkish text(much like the inscriptions in Lemnos) and more recently DNA. Most of history in the West relied on translating ancient text to only Greek, Latin, Arabic, and Persian. Many inscriptions, particularly Sumerian and Etruscan, make much more sense in Turkish, because their language structures are ONLY similar to TURKISH. This is a scientifict fact. The remnants of Avars, Huns, Pomaks, Cumans and Kipchaks have same traditians of the Oguz. I'll part by reminding you that Romulus, was founded by the Etruscans(Central Asian stock). The Etruscans symbolized the city with a She-Wolfe feeding small human babies, much like the ancient Turkic Ergenekon(Dede Korkut) story. Ironically, the Etruscans referred to what Greeks called Rome, as Red Apple as it symbolized peace and prosperity. The Turks believed the essence of their being was to create Kizil Elma, a land where peace and prosperity prevailed. Kizil Elma translated is Red Apple.

Note, Quick Notes- Greek DNA of today links most Greeks to Ethiopia and Sub-Sahara. A quarter is the same as the Turkic genes(J2). As for the "ancient" Armenians, their language is comprised of 60-65% Turkish words. Their DNA is mainly Iranian.
