Käpt'n Posted June 2, 2016 Share Posted June 2, 2016 Today our government made the decision to declare the slaughter of roughly 800.000 Armenians who were murdered by the Ottoman Empire in 1915 a genocide. The government of Turkey was... Not pleased by this, to put it lightly. Their ambassador was called back from Berlin to Ankara and their dictator Erdogan has announced that he will announce consequences. Yes, he announced an announcement. My guess is that this will kill the deal between Europe and Turkey considering the Syrian refugees. Erdogan has been using them as a poker chip for a while now which, frankly, sickens me. How can you use people in a miserable situation to bargain like that? Anyway, what really pisses me off is the position that Turkey tries to defend. They said that we should keep out of their history, that we have no legal right to declare anything to be a genocide and, get this, that Germany should focus on the Holocaust instead. WOW. Just fucking wow. Seriously? We Germans have taken a good look at our own history. We don't deny the evil that came from our country and how many people died. And we are trying our best to make it right and that it will never happen again! And what is the Turkish government doing? They deny that their own genocide ever happened! Just like the neonazis who deny that the Holocaust ever happened. They want US to take responsibility for our history while they won't do it themselves. It's a perfect example for what's wrong with the middle east. They are entirely incapable of taking responsibility for their actions. Their arrogance makes me sick! Blaming others, kicking human rights and turning into angry mobs over trivialities, that's what they excel at. And that's also why their countries are assbackwards shitholes. Why else would they all come to Europe? Besides spreading their dangerous fairy tale beliefs that is... Jeez, this turned dark pretty quickly. Got carried away there because what he said really pissed me off Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
