 No, he actually didn´t paint Turkey like they were angels. He just responded to numerous booty wipes, who constantly attempt to paint Turks as demons. lol

 

 

 

 Exactly.  Perhaps he should keep his temper and stick to the facts instead of trying to take revenge like a child...

Which languages would those be?

I think the only irrelevance are the ignorant foreigners talking about crap that they don´t happen to know much about.

I fail to see what your point is?  I have no knowledge of either of the languages you mention - I see no reason why that makes a difference in your argument.  Kurds were speaking Kurdish (whatever dialect you choose to name!) in the region that is now Turkey during the Ottoman empire and until 1925, when it is subsequently banned until 1991.  Therefore that makes it a "regional language" and it should be respected as such.

 

Yes I am completely ignorant... is that your best defence?  I expected more from YOU (I expect so little from Si++ )

I think this post came into  some conclusions:

1-First of all we have a ´Kurdish problem´ despite the fact people still trying to ignore it with "foreign powers" etc. 

2- This problem is created by us by not giving simple and basic rights to some people who happened to be citizens of Turkey opposing to considering them as immigrants. (examples were shown from various countries about how they solved this type primitive-nationalistic problems)

3- ´Only terrorism´ as an idea seems quite smelly, nobody buys it anymore.

4-Turks speak Turkish, Kurds speak Kurdish.

5- With s++´s admission and cystic´s approval, "we did kick out of the Armenians"!! (btw..if Turkey goes to an international court and if Turkey defends herself like s++ with cystic´s logic, Turkey will lose it in the first session)

Thank you for all your coorperation!!

 

ps. Nobody should get worried.. I am not going to ask and embarres anybody with the question: ´why the hell you were opposing me in the first place´ lol lol

Actually Armenians forced Turks to kick themselves.

There was mutual agreement between Turks and Greeks to exchange population. So we didn´t kick them.

What makes you think we should have kicked the Kurds. We fought together against the condors occupying Anatolia.

I think one official national language is a good idea. If official proceedings have to be in many different languages it is counterproductive.

 

We have a similar situation in the US with Spanish language issue. In this case, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo is interpreted to have included the Spanish language into the treaty for the previously Spanish speaking territories. 

 

However, if anyone wants to be efficient and effective, they had better learn English.

Many countries have problems with official languages. I like the Norwegian attitude - they have 2 standard forms - Bokmal (sp?) and Ny-Norsk plust a zillion dialects that have the status of official languages. If I´m not mistaken, anybody writing to any kind of office in his/her own dialect has the right to demand that they answer in the same dialect. Sometimes that´s a problem. My Norwegian friend who lives far north told me she had serious problems in Oslo as she was barely understood lol

Ottomans were right to relocate Armenians. Nobody can say anything about it. Yes they were "kicked" (that´s your word). Turkey is ready for any international court. Go tell it your Armenian friends. You seem to be happy with the "kick" word used in this context by the way.

Thank you for all your coorperation!!

Wow - anger finally brought out your true colours.  It is not a particularly informative post, but what it lacks in content it compensates as an insight into your zealous xenophobic world...

Thank you
