Thank you for the support on the Cyprus issue.Turkey likes to play the innocent victim of Armenian propaganda and Armenian territorial ambitions.
Poor Turkey so misunderstood...( lol!!)
Its hard not to believe that the Ottoman Turks weren't involved in some sort ethnic "removal".
All we have to do is look at their contemporary track record.
Look at the systematic Pogrom against Christians that's underway in Turkey today.
Look at how badly they treat the Kurds.
If it wasn't for the carrot and stick of possible EU membership the Kurds would be systematically neutered.
Look at Turkey's invasion of independent Cyprus.
That wound should have been healed with Cyprus's entry in the EU but Turkey plays hard ball.
If it wasn't for the possibility of Turkey's admittance into the EU they would be much more aggressive towards any group they don't like.
The US should seriously consider removing it's military presence from Turkey.
If Turks want to become Islamists let them.
USA, Germany, France and other Western nations have come to grips with the truth of their past.
It's time Turkey wakes up and does the same. They are at a cross roads today. Do they want to become another intolerant Islamic Fascist state (Iran Saudi Arabia etc) or do they want to continue on the path to becoming modern democratic country.
The recognition of the Christian Genocides and the return of stollen occupied lands is the path.
I appreciate it.
