Possible Turkish Genocide of Kurds based on past threat and history?

In light of recent Mideast developments I think this historical threat and quote is more relevant than ever. It shows an unchanged sentiment of Turkish leaders and the racist, genocidal tendencies of Turkish nationalism which still exist. With the upheaval in Syria which Ankara is abetting in its foreign policy, the Kurds in Syria could experience a change their status. Depending on how that goes, if it allows them regional autonomy or more, the criminal Turkish leaders may take up this threat again:


The extreme right, led by one of the leaders of the coup d' etat of 27 May 1960, Colonel Turkes, did not hesitate openly to threaten Kurds with a final solution of the kind that had been adopted by the Unionist government towards the Armenians in 1915:

"If the Kurds run after an illusion of creating a state, their destiny will be wiped off the face of the earth. The Turkish race has shown the way in which it can treat those who covet the homeland which it has obtained at the price of its own blood and untold labours. It has eliminated the Armenians from this land in 1915 and the Greeks in 1922."[20]

Why is vaseline in my sig? Because Turks don't want to read what I post. Hopefully the lube makes it easier for those criminal scum who are such great cry-babies to swallow.
