Consensus opinion among the international historical
community is that the Mongol drive westward did not constitute genocide. Despite the fact that all non-threatening yet volitionally independent life in the Mongol path was killed upon such selection. PRC is dealing with the remnants, and this is
treated how? Consider.
Please list those events, with appropriate rationales, the term "genocide"
properly applies to in your opinion. I
would like to better appreciate your definition of the term.
This is a wrong analysis. There was no Armenian revolt and in fact the Armenians supported the Young Turks to come to power due to many massacres inflicted on them by the Sultan in the preceding years. The Armenian resistance came after they were already decimated and finally were able to get weapons and defend themselves which led to Turkish loss of WWI.
The Turkish Government planned and implemented the genocide systematically with great planning. First they rounded up all Armenian intellectuals and leaders of communities and beheaded them. Then they disarmed all Armenians of military age that were recruited in the military and send them to labor camps where they were all killed or worked to death. Third they issued a an order to march all remaining women, children, and old men to the desert where they were raped, killed, mutilated, hacked with swords, babies stolen and assimilated, with no food or water. Kurdish bandits were promised Armenian homes and wealth if they helped.

Then, consider what is likely to happen in the US this April. Juxtaposed with developments in Turkish Army influence lately.
Things may be looking up for humanity a bit. A demon here or there, let's say. Good and right may prevail after all. Wish for this.
