I hate historians, I hate archeaoligists, certified liars is what they are.
Turks my dunba!
Turks(ethnic Turks) do not equal Turkey
They happen to inhabit the area(along with Iran and many other countries) its just that Turkey is a huge motley of different nations, many which became exhausted so Turks had their chance. Turkey is not a Turkic state, but merely a name, where they once ruled, now it is a motley government.
This is not a response to you Sadie, Im jsut responding to the article.
Turkey is every country that was ever there, and partly the blood from invaders as well. Turks have higher culture? Who taught culture to who?
The "anatolians" were well established waaaaaay before the "invaders" came.
Lydians, Lycians, Cappadocians, Ionians, Armenians, Assyrians, Hittites, and on and on and on.
In the war of Independence(Greece), millions of Ionians from what was once Ionia, left Turkey for Greece... Armenians and Assyrians and others have since also been fleeing Turkey, hence Turkey is therefore a motley state, and the attempts at trying to make it seem like "one state of one nation" cause backlashes that spread into already-ingrained societies, and so they decide to leave instead. But ah, nevermind, I just felt I had to respond to this post.
