I want to add one thing. It is results that matter, and Turkey could admit alot more about the numbers that died and admit that their evacuations were poorly planned, negligently executed, and often times certain officials let warring bands attack innocent people. However what has not been proven beyond a reasonable doubt is a central plan to exterminate an Armenian nation as a whole. The term genocide rests on that categorization, and there is by no means a historical consensus on that issue. So I can't fault Turks who don't like the word genocide. I do wish on the other hand that they would not see something that the dying Ottoman Empire did in the midst of a war (not out of the blue like the deporation of Jews by Hitler) as a stain on the gains made by the Turkish Republic. Turkish people are too sensitive when they need not be.
