  1. I thought the river ran red because of Armenian killing of  Anatolian villagers, that were left helpless since army men left the to]wn during the wartimes.

  2. The “river ran red” because “uha1“s greatfather was involved in killing millions of innocent Armenian women and children.
    turkey committed this Genocide solely to empty off the Christian Armenians from their ancestral lands.
    They are desperately trying to do the same to us Kurds, but they won’t dare to arouse the passions of   21 million strong Kurds.
    uha1, Kurds are patiently waiting for any one miscalculation on the turkish side, and then we will raise hell against turks forever. Watch out.

  3. ” The River Run Red ”
              Every Bedouin Said
    Narrating still to their cohorts
              Every now and then.
    Horrible stories 
              How the seen sights can forget!
