gallipoli statue Today for the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli land battles, a memorial day is organizing in Turkey.

I do not know how important this is for the world. There are many people who are pursuit of imperialist lies rather than to learn the facts. Of course, the propaganda is very important. If it is continued to tell a lie millions of times by continuous financial supports, it will be a lot of people will believe. And there are hypocrites among those who believe that had himself/herself put in the anti-imperialist class.

I want to say that Dardanelles war will not care much by hypocrite world in today. Because today, in many parts of the planet, many of people will repeat the great imperialist lie with great enthusiasm of medieval mentality with show of the Pope and the mediatic characters and with taking huge financial support of the UK, France and the US.

“Writing history is as important as making history. If the writer does not remain true to the maker, then the unchangeable reality transforms into a confusing matter for humanity.” / Mustafa Kemal Ataturk 1931

Today, there will be a historic wrong and often misguided agenda which is far away from scientific mind on the planet. In fact, the background there will be the laughter of the medieval mentality. Because, in this so called civilized mankind era, medieval mentality knows that history can still write by politicians and religious functionaries. However, this will not be heard during the show. A century ago in Anatolia, so-called great western states because of they defeated on battle field, they did a good preparation for the centuries for revenge. I have to give the devil his due actually. If the tragicomic thing is those who are living in with shame and stable about perpetuate this lie.

The greatness of the Dardanelles wars will stay in the memories of those who have lived and want to keep it alive with truths on history. I remember with respect those, who died at the battle both Turks and Anzacs at that days. Let’s finish this post with the text which is placed at Kilitbahir on the right side of the Dardanelles.

This writing is actually a poem. Its first two lines are placed at the slope. Here is in English:

Stop wayfarer! This land that you stepped unknowingly is a place where a era went down.

Bend down and lend your ear, for this silent mound,

This is the place where the heart of a nation sighs.

And all ships that passing through the Dardanelles, passes in front of this quiet but powerful scream of the thousands of people who died in these lands…

Addition: Besides, there is a huge lie and smear campaign in the world today, they are making propaganda about even Ataturk words over this post title didn’t belong to him. Those clowns who claim that lie, should apply to me; my response to them will be very nice.;)

    • Thank you for rebloging!

      For centuries an oppressed poor people by the Ottoman Empire, had found itself on the brink of a world war as a result of the policies of the Ottoman. And these poor people taught to England, France and tsarist Russia, even if they became imperialist forces troops with together that they would never be easy bite. In Dardanelles sea and land battles 252,000 people died from the UK – Anzac and France, and 251,000 people died Turkey.

      The Turks had entered the war with the latest weapons in their hands or a single bayonet or old shells. Even the deaths of more than 50,000 were students. These students as well as recent students of military schools, medical schools or were high school students. Istanbul Faculty of Medicine with the current name did not graduate at all in 1921. Because all began of the training in 1915 are died in Dardanelles wars. And from almost whole Turkey in that year has not been a lot of high school students graduation. Because they died in the Gallipoli campaign. Today the imperialists which repeat the same games, they do still think the same thing they can do; with all kinds of lying slander and defamation campaign.

      Turkey is litmus paper of this planet my dear earthling friend. Thanks to its anyone can easily understand who wants what to do. It only needs to want to see. But what people see, is not going to like of them. Because how many people want to know what he/she believes, is a lie?

      • It’s such a tragic story. So much human potential has been wasted.

        Most people don’t realize that everything they believe is a lie. It’s hard to describe to you the mentality that exists here. For many, there is no civilized world outside of the West. It is this mentality that allows our governments to commit their crimes. I’m sure you must have encountered this mentality before, but it’s very disheartening when it is your own people who hold such beliefs. Of course not all people in the West hold these views, but those that do are still in the majority.

      • Yes, you’re right. The important thing is what is meaning of civilized world? If the response of this is iphones, high tech. tools or etc, ok every man or woman who have the money can buy all these stuff. Then civilized world is the thing that can be bought, is that so?

        A nation woke up with Gallipoli wars. They have noticed that they could stand up. Then they present to the world an example of this with the Turkish War of Independence. But it was not liked by the imperialists. Because the leaders as Gandhi or Nehru who said that they took Ataturk as an example for their struggle, came to light. It was not liked by the imperialists.

        They continue to lie. On the same day, by memorializing the so called genocide issue, which the real historical documents said “it was deportation, not genocide”, they pollute the memory of this special Dardanelles wars day. Propaganda full of lies is never done. Degree of idiocy on this planet is like a joke.

      • “If the response of this is iphones, high tech. tools or etc,”

        That’s exactly what they think civilized means. It is a very distorted and bigoted view that sees little value beyond material comfort and distraction. It’s the type of culture that can idealize the Kardashians and see their example as something to aspire to.

        It is not difficult for our rulers to control such minds with propaganda. The people are not even paying attention, because they are distracting themselves with nonsense

      • It is so much civilized world that they still plant bigoted ideas behind the religious figures, I am speaking for all of them; Islam, Christianity and Judaism. What one of them made can be considered an insult for the others. They can console themselves for that they brought peace to their religion to follow the agenda over the high- tech tools at their hands in their warm homes. This is, of course, is pumped with a blank mind and characters created by the media. 500 years have passed from Hernán Cortés who massacred and carried out genocide in real means to the entire Aztec nation for the name of the God and Queen of Spain. But nothing has changed. Still imperialism propagandas. It is still echoing the heads with the same empty mind.

      • Although here we never refer to the massacre of the millions of inhabitants of the Americas as genocide. This, despite some estimates of between 50-100 million people murdered. The “New World” was built on a lie that justified the extermination of entire races of people, so we could live guilt-free in “peace” and “prosperity”. How’s that for propaganda?

      • Yes, even if they are not mentioned. They were killed or left to painful deaths. Just they didn’t want to left homelands like saying with Navajo language.
        “Doo háágóó da deeshnéel háála kwe’é shikéyah”
        in English “I will not go anywhere else because my land is here.”
        They were one of the few nations that really take care of this planet, with a tremendous culture.

        The language the people used shows how they look at the world. For examle for Navajo people, as far I know, friendship word is same mean with peace. So it is clear isn’t it? When imperialists came they said we are friend to them. It is really hard to say, and imagine, after what they did the American Indians feelings.
        Anyway, this would be never end, “nahasdziin sik’is” / “my earthling friend”:)
        Actually mean “my earth friend,” but it is the best that I can.;)

      • What happened here is one of the great tragedies of the human race, and it is still going on. The aboriginal people are generally the poorest and most marginalized people in North American society.

        Our governments have issued various “apologies” over the years for our crimes, but there has never been any genuine attempt to address the genocide that was committed

    • Thank you for your comment my Earthling friend, you’re welcome:) Existence of globalization and nuces is a tragic contradiction for an actual global scale world war. The arms industry makes investing billions of dollars to create them, and the “big world powers!” kills hundreds of thousands in Middle East, Africa or Afghanistan by imposing them as a threat. In fact, this is an unnamed war that experienced. Today to create an Anzac group again, of course is impossible. But now, they continue to seed hatred sow among the publics. And even though this is not at the moment, will cause greater pain experienced in the future.
