What If Ataturk was never born

Post WW1, the Ottoman Empire was disbanded and broken up, mostly to Britain and France. But there were larger demands in the cutting up of Anatolia. Turkey, under general Mustafa aka Ataturk, had to fight the Armenians in the east, Greeks in the west and French in the south to keep Anatolia Turkish.

The Turks could have easily been defeated by all the powers, especially Greece, but thanks to the exselent leadership of Ataturk, who rallied the armies together, they were able to keep Anatolia Turkish. But what if Ataturk was never born and the Allied Powers got their way and Anatolia was split like Africa?

First things first, the powers fighting Turkey were weak. The Allied powers (Italy, France, Britain) could not agree on the borders in Anatolia and Armenia was bound to be taken over by the Russians. So Greece would be the only winner to benefit heavily. First, if the Great Powers colonized southern Anatolian lands, they would have given them back to turkey or their other colonies (i.e Syria, Iraq, Cyprus) in the 1940s or 1950s as part of decolonization. If armenia got the lands promised to them in the treaty of Serves, It would have been conquered by the Russians, giving the USSR more influence in Turkey and the middle east. And finally Greece. Greece would have taken large chunks of eastern Anatolian lands from Ismir to Eskiseher and probably would still hold it today. And they would finally have Constantinople and that's certain.
