What I most object to is your fixation on this topic. There are matters approaching genocide now in the ME, though the numbers low due to ongoing persecutions. Turkey is not one of the countries involved. So it is debating an irrelevant past instead of a current reality.
I also object to your declaring atrocities by others in the same conflict are irrelevant and declaring the cause of the conflict leading to atrocities are irrelevant. Basically, you declare everything you post has no relevancy to anything.
Good research you did, BTW. If academia is just bought, then no information is of any value. Again, your sources are Armenians. The bias obvious.
I do not believe there was an Armenian genocide distinction for other large scale atrocities in that same conflict. And the Armenian population had become a military enemy, including Armenian women - and on a MASS scale. If an average of children and old folks excluded, about 1 in 6 "civilian" Armenians was militarily at war with the Ottomans and within the Ottoman Empire. And an estimated 40,000 were non-uniformed combatants, making them "terrorist insurgents" by current definitions.
Most deaths in that approximate decade+ of war was by disease, the second largest cause starvation. Dying by war or violence was the 3rd cause. Even among the military, the leading cause of death was disease, not war. Disease is not genocide, but can be genocidal.
If you want to declare WWI was a genocide for some reason, I don't see a reason to argue with that as it is just a word.
Did you answer whether you are Armenians? I can't recall.
