[No we have not seen the end of it and if Turkey join a democracy and that is the EU the Greeks should lay claim to all of Turkey and for occupied Constantinople]

I do not understand where you invented these phantasies about "occupied Constantinople". Not even the Treaty of Sevres had given Constantinople to Greece (although the Treaty of Sevres had given Greece Izmir). Yet the Treaty of Sevres has been repealed by the treaty of Lausanne which is in force today and has never been repealed.




[However, by taking revenge, Armenians seriously compromised their moral position.

Bogus again. No one can kill and butcher innocent civilians and get away with it and then have the audacity to blame the victims. Shame on you for blaming the victims of the Armenian Genocide.]

The general Andranik Ozanian and his men were certainly not victims.



I repeat that I quite understand the feelings of Armenian volunteers in 1916-1918 when they just saw hundreds of thousands people of their nation killed or starved to death and besides that, taking revenge is considered quite legitimate thing among Caucasian and Middle Eastern peoples. I only wanted to say that Turks can simply say that Armenians have already taken their revenge, what they want more.
