I still can't understand how the Turks have the balls to deny Seyfo.

Oh I wasn't aware of that.  Good point.  In that case, I can't say that I blame them the coward bastards for their denial of history.

Not only is it about economics, but it’s about nationalism too, this subject rocks the foundation that nation was built on, and that’s our peoples blood. They were a minority in their own country.
Their national hero’s that they commemorate every year are the same butchers that slaughtered our people.
