Greco-Turkish War (1919–1922)

Postby Lordo » Fri Jun 11, 2021 8:06 pm

Now I wonder how many GCs realise that the invading Greek Army killed 640,000 civilians and the swine as they were repelled, they operated a scorched earth policy where they burnt everything on their path.

Has there been such savagery and barbarism on earth?

Of course we know what the GCs are capable of from the experience of Dohni, Murataga, Sanadallilar and Atlilar. And of course, it does not compare with what the Greeks did in Turkey.

Did Turks conquer the area known today as Turkey by the sword Bordo?

4 years earlier, 1.5 million Armenians were decimated by the Ottoman Turks Bordo. Was this not genocide? :?

It really depends on how far Turkey went to protect people.

Just because civilians died, doesn't mean a war crime was committed by the Greeks. There was a war. Civilians will be killed.

If the Greek Army bombarded a town where there were Turkish Soldiers, and some civilians died, well that's sad, but its not a war crime.

I'm sure Civilians died from the other allies in Galipoli and cape Hellas as well.

What was a fact is that was never a strategy of extermination and ethnic cleansing.

Rounding people up and killing them en masse or putting them through a Death March to certain death is a completely different kettle of fish than some civilians getting caught up as 2 armies go to battle.

There are many other examples. The Bombing of Dresden, The London Blitz, The Bombing of Darwin, Pearl Harbour, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and so on. Thousands of civilians killed, but no genocide.

The NAZI holocaust against Jews, Blacks, Homosexuals, Gypsies, Communists, and even Russians however is a war crime.

The Turkish exterminations of Armenians, Assyrians, Greeks also the exact same as the German Holocaust. Only difference is, the Turks were much less sophisticated in their systematic extermination of these people.

Greece also has the advantage of being on the right side of history since they fought with the allies against Germany, Hungary and Turkey. As such, the history books favour Greece and Greece is afforded certain protections by the allies - hence war reparations and the Ceding of territories over to Greece as a reward to Greece and punishment agaist Turkey.

It pays to be on the right side of history.

Greece again turked out to be on the right side of history in WW2. And that only helped Greece to form even better ties - especially with Australia and NZ. We have a long history of our soldiers fighting side by side and that can never be forgotten. They fought against evil and to defend Greece, unsuccessfuly initially but again, right side of history. Turkey, once again, wrong side of history.

No, not accoding to Bordo. But some racial civil disturbance in 1921 in America is somehow. A systemic racial holocaust against Blacks.

It's Turkish logic at its best.

And somehow, the allies are responsible for the killing of Turkish Civilians in WW1. Turkey however isn't responsible despite choosing to side with the AXIS to conquer Europe. :roll:

Try to follow the logic...Got a headache yet?

I mean picture this. As the allies were landing on the beaches of galipoli and Cape Hellas, our soldiers are not going to differentiate between Turkish Soldier and Turkish Civilian. As thousands were being killed during the landing, they too will be gunning down anayone in their path to form a beachhead so all the other troops can land in some safety.

That's just the way it was.

Secondly, Turkey used civilians to supply their military with ammunition, food, clean water etc. Therefore, they were targeted. The supply lines would be bombed with artillery. Even towns and villages would be bombed. They are not going to not bomb them because they are civilians. The allies took every opportunity.

And don't be surprised that Turkey has cooked the books, attributing civilian deaths caused by the allies (UK, France, India, Australia, NZ, Ireland) to Greece.

Turkish propaganda. they are taught by the best (Germany).

Today, Erdogan is trying to such Australian dick to form good relations with Australia. That's why they have jumped on the ANZAC bandwagon. But Australia and NZ can never have as close a bond as that with Greece. That is a fact. If you go to the Australian War memorial, Greece is revered. Turkey isn't. Greece is revered because Greeks spilled their blood next to our soldiers and bonds were formed. Very strong bonds.

Greece should be extremely proud of their contributions for the allies. Absolutely astonishing what that country did for the allies and it should never be forgotten. All of Europe should be very proud of Greece.

One has to understand Turkey's motoives. they hate Greece and they hate Armenia.

Thewy want those 2 in particular to be destoryed and they want their flag to be flyoing in Athens, Thessaloniki and Crete. They want their flag to be flying in Cyprus too.

No consideration whatsoever to Greek or Armenian civilians. If they couldm they would totally wipe those populations out for a Greater Turkey.

This is the epitomy of Turkish Fascism and the reason why they chose to side with Germany.

Thden, somehow, it's Greece's fault when some civilians were killed.

It's somehow the fault of the allies for "invading" Turkey.

Well, the allies didn't just wakeup and decide to land at Galipoli and Cape Hellas for no reason. Turkey chose the wrong side, the side of evil, and had to pay for it and thenafully they lost the war.

They do all of the above to justify the extermination of Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks. The greatest genocide in human history at that point. Which is only to be beaten some decades lady by the very organized and efficient NAZI extermination of Jews and others in WW2.

There is no atrocity anywhere that even comes close to these 2 genocides. Nothing at all.

Yeah, hopefully there’ll be another war and they’ll wipe each other out, for all I care about Balkan trash!
