Turkey's president warns Bush over Armenian vote
Turkey's president has written to U.S. President George W. Bush warning of the damage to bilateral ties if Congress backs a bill recognizing the 1915 massacres of Armenians as genocide, his office said on Tuesday.
Congress's Foreign Affairs Committee is expected to back a bill on the genocide issue on Wednesday and speaker Nancy Pelosi, a known supporter of the Armenian cause, could then decide to bring it to the House floor for a vote.
W is not expected to sign this bill - why? - because he needs Turkey's support for his visions of a larger war against Iran/Syria. But it is time the slaughter of so many is recognized as genocide. The senseless murder and slaughter of so many innocents in the name of of a "nation" or a religion is nothing more than genocide and must be condemned.
