The ones that helpes UK forces overthere, interperters, guides etc, wanted to immigrate to UK when they heard that UK will pull her forces from Iraq. UK refused all of them, it was on media everywhere incase you didn't realise.
In case of ermeni people though, they have no problems travelling or migrating anywhere at all. But for some wierd reason they choose to stay here, and according to our friend here they even change their names, leave their proud history at dark and even work with turks ( omg how dare they!!!!111111 )...
Now why would that be
ok. now clearly you lack the capacity to understand anything so as my last ditch attempt to get through to your pea-sized brain, I will make it extremely simple.
Say you and your daughter have been living in Canada for centuries. And then all of a sudden the Canadian government decides to outlaw turks. They start sending them on convoys on to death camps. You, being in Vancouver, found it easy to hide in a big city like that and you were being watched by forein observers. If the international observers see whats happening to Turks they will react. So the government purposefully left you guys in peace in Vancouver alone, and only took care to accuse your community leaders and then execute them.
After all this, Canada decides there are too few turks left so its no use spending so much money to kill the rest of them off! So they decided to do it by intimidation.
They pass a series of laws banning the turkish flag, they put a canadian flag on all turkish owned companies and stores and mosques. They teach kids at school thats turks are less than human.
But you have friends and family here. You have a business and a life and your ancestors have been here for hundreds of years. You dont have the money to leave either and if you do, where are you gonna go?
And now your daughter is of age to go to school. Your store has been vandalised a few times but thats ok, you can get by. Your daughter comes home from her first day of school with tears in her eyes because she was picked on by the other kids for being turkish, and her teacher is failing her for "unknown reasons". She doesnt want to go to school anymore.
So finally, seeing no other escapes, you change your name from Sakaloglu to Smith, and then your store goes from being a turkish delight store to a maple syrup candy store.
Your daughter changes schools and is accepted, you keep working and its doing fine, but you want your daughter to know shes turkish no? so you teach her about turks and how hard it is to be turkish and what not. You meet other people who, like you, had to make sacrifices to stay alive, and they have a son. Knowing he secretly is turkish and your daughter will have turkish children, you set them up for marriage.
You now have a second generation in Canada and thats even less reason to leave. And so what, altho life is hard, you get through it fine?
There, I made it as simple as can be. just replace Turkish by Armenian, Canada by Turkey and Vancouver by Istanbul and youv got a good bolsahye story!
If you dont understand after this then you need to check yourself in to a mental hospital...
