So did the Turks murder 2 million Armenians or not? Are you saying the killing was justified? Can you post the evidence?

The total number of Armenians in Eastern Anatolia at the time was 1.3 Million. At the end of WWI around 750,000 had migrated to Europe, America and Turkish territories in the south where they were relocated. Several tens of thousands moved westward in Turkey and several tens of thousands moved to Armenia. During the same time period, more than 500,000 Turks were killed by Armenian gangs in Eastern Anatolia adding to the 3-5 million Turks killed between 1908-1918 due to forced migration, disease, famine and massacres at the hands of Serbs, Greeks, Armenians, Bulgarians, Russians and Arabs. These are all documented facts and the documents are open for academic scrutiny in the Turkish national archieves.
