how about the Turks giving the Christian West back all the stuff THEY looted during many centuries of oppression and misrule? and compensation for the people they enslaved?
Good point.

Europe should calculate all the damage the Ottoman Empire caused for 600 years by invading, killing and looting, and repeatedly trying to conquer all Europe, as well as committing genocides against its own population... and present the bill to the Turkish government, payable upon receipt.

Antiquities have as much common with "Turkish civilization" as does a Horse to a fly.

Ah, as we are talking about "civilisation"... The history of even my home town is longer than entire American history though... You ignorant redneck...:)))

Ah, these are some references to the illiterate rednecks though;

Turkish civilisation, going back to bronze age....

And some artifacts, from the Gokturk empire period, 1500 years old...

Since the "redneck" has been educated about one of the oldest civilisation on earth, we can start talking about the "massacres committed" and "damages caused" by the "west" if you wish... I have no proplem, as long as you are happy with being a laughing stock...:)))

Yes, you have the right to talk as an American ....

Ahhh, please remind me, what was that with the American Indians???

You remember the Red guys ... which left their 'open air jails' aka reservations because the American government did not honoured her promises to deliver free food, the majority of them anyway already had starved to death ...

because of the mistreatment, discrimination and especially famine they left their reservation.... but you send your army, hunted them down and shot them like animals......

When was that? This still happened in the 1920's ...

I have the impression .... you must be the 'Flying Horse' you are talking about...
