It is unfortunate that the mountain Ararat, situated within the borders of Turkey, is described as being in Armenia and is called an "Armenian" mountain. Since when are mountains identified with ethnicity? The mountain is in Turkey! The picture is a good one, but I find Google's identification incorrect and disturbing!

You're right it is in Turkey! But: Picture was taken from Yerivan, so it is correct described Mountain area was taken by Soviets and given to Turks, so the Armenians miss it, That is what I learned from history. Not correct?
