And now we wait for a full house vote. As expected Bush and Rice are shitting in their pants, Turkey is whining and pissed off, and I could not be happier.
I don’t know if this speaks to the sly smarminess or the sheer stupidity of our president, but he labels the event as: historic mass killings. Hello? That is what a genocide is.
The logical part of me understand the political machinations at work here and why this is still an issue. However, the human part of me thinks the whole denial is ridiculous. No one had a problem being up in arms when the denials of the Jewish Holocaust were pouring out in waves. Granted the Jewish population is ten times that of the Armenian and the American Jewish presence was/is a lot more prevalent than the Armenian.
I hope this keeps pushing forward and the Armenian Genocide finally gets the recognition it deserves.
