[Was the intention of the Ottomans to destroy a people?
No, it was purely by accident. The Turks wanted to congratulate and welcome the Armenians into a new and modern Turkey, but somehow and completely unintentionally they killed 1m of them.

Until this day Turkey keeps on hiding every evidence and cultural aspect of actual and former (i.e. slaughtered) Armenian people (and not only, also Syriacs had to change their last names, e.g., in favor of more "Turkish" ones).
Btw. I am with Erdogan that Turkey must redefine its strategic rule in political, economical and cultural matters (because Atatürk has been reveiled a failure in the long run). If that means that it is worth recycling something of the Ottoman empire past (which of course shall be part of Turkish culture and history), one has to accept not only good things, but also the bad ones. We commonly call that "responsibility".
Erdogan is already doing his very best to recycle some of the bad habits of Ottoman sultans... one of them banned the word “nose” from any news in fear somebody was mocking his rather large one... Erdogan banned a three digit number - 128 - from any newspaper or public poster. Because he doesn’t want to discuss the 128 Billion dollar missing in the National reserves. Not sure if I would call that “responsibility” though...

Re: Azerbaijan conflict

may I just remind everyone of the fact, that a national hero of Azeirbadjan is a man, who killed an armenian man. While he slept. With an axe. In Budapest. On a NATO-sponsored seminar.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramil_Safarov


once back home, he was met and greet like a hero, promoted in rankings, got a flat, received 8 years of salary.


Instead of rotting in prison for life.
