and how do you think turks got Istanbul from Byzantium? was it easy?
Yes,it was easy.Byzantium had only 20000 soldiers at the time of the attack and the Turks had 200000.
they had a cannon called "great Turkish bombard
Yes,which was invented by a Hungarian called Unyadi who wanted to sell it first to the byzantine Emperor.
and after we got Istanbul we didn't destroy any religion or cultural thing there. even respected to orthodox people
Yes,because Istanbul most likely surrendered and by the law of Quran,Muslims do not destroy cities which surrender to them and let orthodox Christians keep their faith under condition to give 10% of their income as tax.
at that time ottomans were very rich too, they were always winning the wars so gaining spoils, taking taxes etc
Yes,they got richer by collecting everything which was produced in Balkans and Arab world by the working folks.When they lost their conquests,they became suddenly poor.
as a sick state
At least some true words.Indeed the ottoman Empire was described as the sick man of Europe.Some nations have to give explanations why they prolonged its existence for so long.
we had to revolt against ottomans much before
How to revolt against the Ottomans when the Ottomans were actually you?You had to revolt against yourselves.
say before eu - after eu
Before EU accession Greece had greater GDP per capita than Portugal and Spain.After Greece joined EU,Spain has surpassed Greece in terms of GDP per capita and Portugal is close.What are you talking about?
true, you are right about it.
I know I am right.Do you see?Everyone had their role.Greeks,Jews and Armenians were competitors in business and Ottomans favored mostly Jews.That's why Jews in Salonica were sad when Greek army liberated the city from Ottomans and so they voted against Venizelos(you know what I mean).
before world war I ottomans had 21 million population
You distract data.Ottoman Empire before WW1 contained today's Macedonia,Iraq,Syria,Palestine,Saudi Arabia,Qatar,Albania and south Bulgaria.So it had much more population than Turkey after the war which had only 7 million(now it has 10 times more).
it was a war with mutual dead
It was ethnic cleansing.Greeks near Pontos in Trapezounta,Samsunta who fought with the Armenians had to get out as well.Neoturks had already began the ethnic cleansing before WW1.
also tell how many turks forced and killed by Greece? be at least a little objective.
500000 Turks out of Macedonia and 200000 out of Creta.However by the treaty of Lausanne in 1923 250000 Greeks remained in Istanbul and 150000 Turks remained in Thrace.Now after the pogrom in 1954 there are 4000 Greeks in Istanbul while the Turks in Thrace have increased over 200000.
to kill people in Turkish villages
I hope you do not want to open the issue since there are Englishmen watching the forum as well.
Turkey is country of Kurds and Turks. and many other nations inside. we are brother people. if you ask Kurds they will be going to say the same thing.
Kurds strongly deny they are the same with Turks.You regard them as Turks.They form 25% of population in Turkey.
is pkk terror
US regards similar Kurdish organizations in northern Iraq as liberators and freedom fighters.
or blame my nation unfairly
Fairly.There was 400 years occupation,what more is needed?
