...accept responsibility on behalf of his dictatorship...
I'm totally uninformed about the topic's subject but this sentence is so wrong on so many levels. I believe you judge historical events on today's circumstances which I believe is the wrong approach for any historical subject.
I'm also avoiding giving any opinion of mine on this very subject but I wish to inform you about 1915's Turkey aka disassembling Ottoman Empire or what's left of it. There was no central power in that state. The country was tired of unending wars and in turmoil. There was no stability at all. At the time even the government came into power with a military coup and there was a puppet Sultan at the throne.
I believe you all are very informed about the events in 1915 so I skip that part to avoid controversial discussions since I'm not trying to enter that topic. So why did I disagree with this sentence of yours? The answer is simple. Today's government in Turkey totally differs from 1915 both ideologically and practically. I know from the outside perspective it seems the same but it's not. I also get why it seems the same but this is not the topic nor it gives any insight about our topic.
As I said I'm totally less informed than you guys about 1915 events but when people misinform people in a historical discussion, I feel like I need to give first-hand information about the current status of that country to make people avoid judge things from today's perspective.
Have a nice discussion
