Rudaw[edit]

The Rudaw links are dead. But the main Rudaw news (the link I posted) was saying that 36 people were killed, not 50. That 50 number was claimed by a biased Rudaw columnist based on an initial report by PKK. Kavas (talk) 15:14, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Why Massacre??[edit]

This incident can not be defined as a "massacre" (as described in the article also). Massacre is totally a different act, where there is generally evil will. This is quite obvious when the definition of Massacre and the "List of events named massacres" are examined/analyzed carefully.

In addition to that, the official name of the place is Uludere, not Roboski.

Therefore, it would be appropriate to name the article as "Uludere incident" or "Uludere/Roboski incident", as per [1]. There is no need to "poison" wikipedia with emotional preferences & political issues. With the existing name, there are lots of NPOV and COI issues.88.233.208.131 (talk) 10:17, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

"There is no need to "Poison" wikipedia ith emotional preferences & political issues.", I think there is no need to hide your political preference and your emotions about kurds too! Maybe you have to search some thing in yourself, because in fact there is no need to trivialize "Turkish governments crimes"! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.142.174.61 (talk) 22:11, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Roboski MassacreUludere Incident – As per WP:TITLE, the title should be neutral and non-judgmental. This incident can not be defined as a massacre, and the official name of the place is Uludere, not Roboski. List of events named massacres provides lots of examples for the cases when an incident can be called as a massacre. --Relisted.  — Amakuru (talk) 14:30, 16 December 2013 (UTC) 88.233.208.131 (talk) 12:06, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Note: neither "massacre" nor "incident" are proper nouns, and thus should not be capitalized. HandsomeFella (talk) 15:35, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
