Armen, 1st to truly understand this situation you must remember to trash all propaganda from all involved parties, Turkish, Armenian, Greek, French, British Russian and even the US. 2nd you must throw out the word genocide completely or you have to use it for all conflict going back millennium. 3rd All parties must admit none of their hands are clean and open slaughter of civilians occurred many innocent others not so. This terrible period should be remembered; to call it genocide is a total disservice to the real victims of genocide perpetrated in the 20th century. When a foreign power has the ability to influence people to rise up and destabilize their government in time of war, perpetrate open slaughter of civilians, when a nation is threatened by external and/or internal threats to it sovereignty it will fight back both externally and internal. When the aggressors are unidentifiable from the local populist as was the case? civilians will be killed.
