Turkish Propaganda?

Reader comment on item: Does Turkey Still Belong in NATO?
in response to reader comment: Turkish Genocide Denier

Only if all you Turk haters were brave and honest enough to let the historians discuss the events that took place in First World War, then we would have seen who was really murdered by their neighbors, whose bodies got mutilated and whos kids got burned. And that was done by the people living next door or by the people from a nearby village. Only then the world would see and re-discover the tombs located in Eastern Anatolia... Hint: the bodies discovered would not be Armenians!

But who did what during a time of war is of no use. It is also of no use to hold a grudge against for that matter. However, people from different ethic/social backgrounds are still being used today by emperialists...

Back then, Armenians like many other minorities in the Ottoman Empire were easily used against Ottoman forces or Turks by emperialists. Russia was not the only country that used Armenians. France and England also were clever enough to know who could be bought with the promise of land and freedom from the Ottomans...

Historical discussion can take place if and only if the Armenian Turk haters stop to see that they were and are being used by emperialist countries whose sole purpose is to weaken Turkey (in order to have better control over Middle East). Until then extremists from both sides will continue to hate each other and prevent the countries to form trade relations. Which in turn would hurt both countries. However, it would hurt Armenia the worst.

So before letting out all your hatred as a comment, I would sincerely advise you to reconsider and to acknowledge that the hatred would do you or your mother land, no good.
