Well, my idea for a Moot discussion of the attempted genocide by Turkey of the Armenians appears to have been shot down, so I will try here and see what happens. There is a fair amount of material on Project Gutenberg regarding the evidence for it, so of it pretty graphic, and from a wide range of witnesses including Germans, of all people. The Kurds appear to have joined the Turks without a whole lot of encouragement, along with the Syrian Arabs and the Iraqis. One German war correspondent wrote a book including the massacres only after getting to the safety of Switzerland. Considering that the Turkish Army was up to its ears in this, it is sort of hard for the Turkish government to accept that Turkish Army of Kemal Attaturk were not exactly angels when it came to the Armenians, but on par with the SS. The Kurds do not exactly escape guilt either, which is one of the reasons that I with that the US had not been using them as basically mercenaries in Syria. Civil wars are never good things to get involved in.

I guess you could say that I trust a Turk about as much as I trust either a Bulgarian or an Illinois Democratic Politician, which is to say I do not trust them at all. If anyone is interested in the Armenian massacres, they just have to search Armenia on Project Gutenberg.
