Dear "shaking my head", you wrote :

> a fanatical Greek or Armenian spouting the usual propaganda they have been using to poison the minds of their children for centuries? All that hate , Ianus, it must be very hard to keep your composure.

Believe me , I'm also shaking my head reading your post ... with unstudied amusement and not only because you think I am what I am not .

Anyway, I infer from your copious and matter-of-fact investigation that you do know the recent and more distant history of Turkey and the larger Balcan- Anatolian region much better than I can ever aspire to do. No exaggeration ! You have never been affected by any (non-existent ) Turkish propaganda or hatred and contempt the Turks allegedly show to all critcs of Turkishness and giaours. You're fed up with unsubstatiated allegations and impudent open lies and pseudo-historical data promoted by the henous anti-Turkish propganda .

In view of that I beseech you in the name of the truth for ALL children's sake to continue your methodological criticism of Greek-Armenian conspiracy against America's "great ally" . Your source analyses and objective research will be most appreciated by all unbiased readers and some biased ones as well .

Turkey's persecuted innocence and unjustly denigrated virtue stand in desperate need of your idealistic counterattack and unselfish rebuttals.
