You try hard to look full of knowledge, bombarding people with seeimingly encylopedic knowledge.
You need to be clear neat and precise. I get no responses to my question because you dont get the reason I raise those questions or like in the case of damascus you simply runaway with no numbers:
1) According to many sources the number of Turkish civilians who died because of the attacks and intimidations of Armenian armed groups (from Anatolia) as well as Aramenia Russian forces exceeded 600.000 thousand. These included the deaths of the emigrating masses on the way of also starvation, malnutrition, wounds, etc.
2) The number of Armenians who lived in Anatolia at the time of forced resettlement to Damascus was 950.00. Of which 600.000 have been resettled by Cemal Pasha in that province (and hence the present Armenian populations of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan as welll as all European American Latin American Aramenians)
3) Turkey has never disagreed the loss of life and great tragedy during the forced resettlement. These loss of lives and all the individual tragedies, cause by sicknesses, famine, starvation, robbery, local gangs and thieves taking advantage of the situation etc.That these resettlement happened in 1915 and during war conditions would explain a lot about the losses.
4) The Armenians paid the price of their alliance with Russia, misled encouragemnets by England and France and unfortunately waged a war for independecne and lost it. The Government did not trust its Armenian population any more and resttled them for its own protection in another of its territory. Unfortuntaley even the US resorted this in the II World War.
5) I am talking about the German population of today's Poland who was forcefully resttled at the end of II. World war. The number of civilian people who lost their lives during the forced emigration in 1946 was 500.000 .
6) The number of turkish civilian people expelled from Balkan europe is 2 million, they came on bare foot on mulls sick and wounded, during the expulsions 1 million have lost their lives because of attacks by armed gangs, robbery, rape, sickness and starvation. They left behind everything they had never to return or claim their lives and property. In fact the expulsions of Turkish civilians continued rigth into the 1980's when communist regime of Bulgaria in 1986 piled up 1 million Turks to its Turkish border and forced them out, most of whom still cannot claim their lives and properties.
7) During the I World war 5 million Turks have lost their lives including soldiers. The number of civilinas who lost their lives was (becasue of war, attacks, killings, massacres, (by including Armenians) famine, sicknes etc. over 2 million.
By the way the Turks had the Turkish baths and clean food and toilet habits much much before Europe. So if there was a filth it must be somebody elses.
