I would like to thank the author for an ntseretniig article. As an American of Turkish decent, I would like to point out that the historical issue at stake here is not a question of what can be acertained about motives or that the relevant parties are dead; during the same time period 2.5 million Muslims were killed, and of those, 500,000 Turks were slaughtered by Armenians. As one who has many friends whose grandparents were wiped out and forced out the area, it bothers me when Armenians act "holier than thou" as though they are the only victims and don't have any blood on their hands. Unfortunately, they do. Unfortunately, both sides killed each other during that time. And that is why this is so heavily disputed right now...because it was not one sided. Thanks again.
