in the last link above is mentioned ww-I and I will take one example so we can see how potent spin was steered through newspaper hype even then that has been used even nowadays for pressure and potential geopolitical conditioning of Turkey i.e. the armenian genocide that was probably retaliation massacre as turks are claiming as response to
armenian cleansing of turks
In March 1915 the Russian forces began to move toward Van. Immediately, on April 11,1915 the Armenians of Van began a general revolt, massacring all the Turks in the vicinity so as to make possible its quick and easy conquest by the Russians. 
greeks and jews
Nor did these Armenian atrocities affect only Turks and other Muslims. The Armenian guerillas had never been happy with the failure of the Greeks and Jews to fully support their revolutionary programs. As a result in Trabzon and vicinity they massacred thousands of Greeks, while in the area of Hakkari it was the Jews who were rounded up and massacred by the Armenian guerillas. Basically the aim of these atrocities was to leave only Armenians in the territories being claimed for the new Armenian state; all others therefore were massacred or forced to flee for their lives so as to secure the desired Armenian majority of the population in preparation for the peace settlement 
yet coz Turkey is crossroad between Asia and Europe still when is needed fhis issue is promptly evoked in one or another form! indeed this topic as uniquely exploited negative geopolitical propaganda can be discerned by the still not historically verified armenian genocide which I must conclude is similar to the ea-determinists colonization blueprint for the srebrenica massacre where serbs were lured to revenge after bosnians massacred few villages and later that revenge to be used as pretext for direct nato involvement  but as we can see from the example of Turkey if anyhow is not following blindly the ea-determinists agenda instantly is pulled from the basement as bashing narrative without any concerns whether the same will provoke animosity among the neighbors, not that atrocities werent present but genocide cmon tho the same couldnt be said for the euroatlantic empires in their colonial past yet by contradiction that is overlooked as slave trade or war collateral!
alone by the first 1st footnote cant be clearly explained that indeed propaganda was used so here are few other quotes from the same book … not that people didnt died 300k turks are saying but on their side 3m laid the life - check the last quoted paragraph …
England in particular came to consider the “Armenian Question” as a useful tool to advance its own ambitions, and to regularly intervene to secure its solution according to its own designs
There were many honest western diplomatic and consular representatives who reported what actually was happening, that it was the Armenian revolutionary societies that were doing the revolting and slaughtering and massacring to secure European intervention in their behalf.
In 1876, the British Ambassador in Istanbul reported that the Armenian Patriarch had said to him: “If revolution is necessary to attract the attention and intervention of Europe, it would not be hard to do so.” On 28 March 1894 the British Ambassador in Istanbul, Currie reported to the Foreign Office: “The aim of the Armenian revolutionaries is to stir disturbances, to get the Ottomans to react to violence, and thus get the foreign Powers to intervene.” 
Finally, the Dashnak ideologue Varandian admits that the society “wanted to assure European intervention,” 15 while Papazian stated that “the aims of their revolts was to assure that the European powers would interfere in Ottoman internal affairs” 16 At each of their armed revolts the Armenian terrorist committees have always propagated that European intervention would immediately follow. Even some of the committee members believed in this propaganda. 
In reaction to these revolts, the Ottomans did what other states did in such circumstances, sending armed forces against the rebels to restore order, and for the most part succeeding quickly since very few of the Armenian populace supported or helped the rebels or the revolutionary societies. However for the press and public of Europe, stirred by tales spread by the missionaries and the revolutionary societies themselves, every Ottoman restoration of order was automatically considered a “massacre” of Christians, with the thousands of slaughtered Muslims being ignored and Christian claims against Muslims automatically accepted. 
Talat Pasha, in a report presented to the last congress of the Union and Progress Party, stated that this number wasestimated at around 300.000.
Bogos Noubar, head of the Armenian delegation at the Paris Peace Conference, declared that after the war 280.000 Armenians were living in Turkey and 700.000 Armenians have emigrated to other countries. According to the estimation of Bogos Noubar, the total number of the Armenian population before the war was 1.300.000. Therefore, it can be concluded that the number of the Armenian losses was around 300.000. This figure reflects the same proportion, according to their total population, of the 3 million loss of Turkish lives during the same period. 
but coz official turkish response these points need further elaboration so we can conclude that its word for propaganda So if we know how freemasonry infiltrated in Russia and Turkey as last Monotheist Empires mids romantism and even indebted and turned them against eachother so later would be easily exploit their vulnerable inner cohesion so as empires would be kneeled down  its not hard to assume that in place was also huge psyop, in both cases also infiltrating freemasonic stooges like bolcheviks or young turks altho even earlier there was plot in place first by westernization as of Russia so as of Turkey here comes to mind the trade and through it western trends like humanism for russians but also baroque for turks (tulips comes to mind) but defacto even since crusaders the aim of vatican&co was to reach beyond europe and secure every place as colony so would exploit whatever can, and when wars werent potent tool then cultural infiltration was at scene so from side by bribery of trendsetters to be secured pawns that will be used later as fuse for sabotages revolts and revolutions!
its interesting that such spin were armenian freemasons who organized their resistance through swiss lodges  (as could be seen very alive vibe even nowadays) which actually were under french and english control after the enlightenment era i.e. altho in the teuton realm still the main word was theirs, after all the dissolution of hapsburg was also “their” skim so was the grabbing of Levant and Arabia! yet another infiltration was executed by vatican and through missionary vail jesuits were gathering intelligence that later would be exploited by freemasons what also was recognized by Russia and in bulk jesuits were expelled from there  altho earlier even were helped  mostly as reflex to the westernization trends and as consequence aliances 
but not just russians and turks that were only one played by indirectly by debt but directly all nations in birth eg. greeks as revolutionaries were more obvious example  and almost all were peddled so would become owned! but to be more hilarious turks were peddled even from within the palace towards rage, altho as empire in war the Ottoman was always in similar circumstances ruthless against the rebellious people and if turks were genocidal it would had have such stamina towards all rebelling vilayets eg. knowing the similar macedonian case from 1903 defacto from 2 million macedonians back then  should left none if from 1.3 armenians were cleansed 1 million … still its fact that armenians were butchered but as result of wrongly steered revolution deep within Turkey by the freemasonic agenda for substituting independent royalism by owned republicanism!
During the First World War, Ottoman special units called Teşkîlât-ı Mahsûsa are used and these are made by secret units (Special Organization) planned for this job.  The organization, which is the secret service of the Ottoman Empire, is an irregular war unit established with the suggestions of the British ambassador Canning Startfort (Civinis Efendi).  It was established on 17 November 1913 under the administration of Enver Pasha and the organization under the responsibility of Süleyman Askerî .  The human resources of the Special Organization units are composed of Kurdish tribes, prisoners , and Caucasian and Rumelian immigrants .is formed.
