Someone who knows how much the Turks are perfidious and oblivious. They owed their very survival in 1921 to the Soviets and yet they have denied the obvious facts and become the worst enemies of their erstwhile saviours. Now they exist and boast of their military might because of the US aid and yet their anti-Americanism and ingratitude are disgustful.

< I think ... you show yourselves as greeks who created the civilisation. You have no connection at all with these people, you are not Yunan-Greek , you are just Rum. Even your language is different from ancient greek, the only thing is you filled your lang with old greek reminology to continue your bet and receive ancient greek aphabet.>

Well, you repeat faithfully the pious nonsense that fills your Turkish school books, barbarian! As you ignore both the ancient and modern Greek I will leave you in your fool's paradise undisturbed. Anyway, I am not suprised at all that in Osmalıca "türk" was synonymous to "ignorant brute", "barbarian". The meaning was more than justified and natural.

Most probably it's because you mutilated or destroyed them, Moslem vandals ! ;)

"Turks and Aristotle?" I agree! It would be really inhuman to suppose the two can ever meet.
