  • the armenian genocide is a lie. The Russians armed the Armenians and the Armenians attacked the Ottoman Empire. thousands of unarmed Turks were killed in the east. Thereupon, the Ottomans attacked the Armenians and both sides suffered great damage. Russia is the only reason the Ottomans and Armenians fought. Russia was provoking Armenians for war, as it did in the Balkans. Also, why is nobody talking about the Khojaly massacre in 1992? Armenians killed a lot of Turks in Azerbaijan?

The conditions were horrible in those trenches.

Finally we wouldn't have a battle like that and won't have to worry about germany for about twenty years. In comes WWII the most deadliest and inhumane battle of history. Nazis defeated in 1945 which made it way more devastating for Germany losing two world wars and don't want to mention what their country did from 1939-1945.
