Has a final decision been made on the Armenian Genocide? I am curious as I read recently that the Wales Genocide Memorial was vandalised in January 2007 because it is in memory of the Armenians. If it exists in ill Bethisad then it is possible that a war of words exists between Kemr, Armenia and Turkey. AndrewSmith 23:44, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

From what I understand in the text, there was a forced march (like *here*) but the difference is that by then Turkish Armenia had already declared independence, so the Turks were forcing the Armenians still inside Turkish territory to move into the new Armenian state. That means that it was probably fewer people being displaced, and they probably had some sympathy from their co-nationals once they crossed into the new Armenia. That's my interpretation of Rodlox's comment recorded here on the Wiki page.
I also infer that sometime c. 1920, the former Turkish Armenia and the former Russian Armenia must have merged. Benkarnell 20:22, 9 December 2012 (PST)
That explains why Armenia *there* is much larger than *here*. Perhaps there wasn't an Armenian Genocide *there* as terrible as *here* (of course a genocide is always terrible, no matter how many people was killed) but an ethnic cleansing in Ottoman Armenia. If Armenians were forced to move to their new independent Armenia (which was kept independent since then) guess there are less Armenians living abroad. Possibly Cher and Charles Aznavour are artists from Armenia and not from the Armenian Diaspora :). What about the Armenian businessmen? Are they dealing with oil industry as they were *here*? If so I believe Armenia could be a richer country than *here*.--Pedromoderno 08:52, 18 March 2015 (PDT)
