Faruk . ( farouk) arabic : meaning one who distinguishes between right and wrong
"Turkey has bombed and shelled alleged PKK strongholds in Iraq, and located 1 or 2 hundred thousand troops along the border. America has been invited by Turkey to support their attacks on Kurds, and to participate with Turkey in their efforts to disable the PKK. While Kurdish terrorists are no less terrorists because they're Kurds, the Kurdish -people have been American allies in Iraq. I can't bear the thought of USA participating in a Turkish Kurdish Genocide."
US attacked Iraq and invaded all country and ask for Turkey to support invasion and was refused by Turkish National Assembly. As a Turkish and a person I can't bear the thought of USA invasion a country and humiliate its people. US persuading his enamies overseas, as you say PKK is terrorist and killing innocent people everyday Turkish and Kurdish , and Turkey does not have right to chase these terrorist who are using Iraq's land to attack Turkey . US does whatever it wants but Turkey can not. I like your logic very much. And US expects support agianst its enemies which US labels as terrorists. People are killed by PKK every day in Turkey. When I hear people like you, I think to myself why Turkey supports US against Taliban or al-qaeda.
"Please vote, without delay, in support of the bill acknowledging that the Muslim Ottoman Empire's Genocide of Armenian Christians is a fact of history"
I want to write to my congressman "Please vote, without delay, in support of the bill acknowledging that the Christian United States of America's Genocide of Native American Indians is a fact of history" I just ask who do you think you are to say that it is a fact of history. There is not any decision of court internationaly or nationaly. Historians do not have an aggrement. Why Muslim Ottoman, Armenian Christians ? I suppose you think it is a genocide if it is against Christians only. Why do not you write to your congressman about Srebranitsa in 1995, or Khojaly in 1992. Because muslims were killed there, it does not concern you ?
"Of course, currently, Turkey is threatening to commit a Kurdish Genocide to protest our recognition of the Armenian Genocide, and they are so bold that they ask us to support them and participate in what will doubtless be a flood of war crimes perpetrated against all Kurds.
Turkey is attempting to extort the American People and the US Congress, saying they'll further restrict our already-reduced access to staging areas in Turkey if we don't agree to their Great National Lie"
Of course US wants us to believe that US invaded Iraq to bring democracy and human rights, not to control oil reserves.( US did not support Saddam against Iran, did not supply all kind of guns and finance. ) They are so bold that they ask Turkey and all world to support them and participate in what will doubtless be a flood of war crimes perpetrated against all Iraqis..
Back then US did not care about Saddam's massacres of Kurdish People. Back then Turkey opened its borders and accepted all Kurdish escaping Saddam's bombs.
US is attempting to extort the Turkish People and the Turkey Congress, saying they'll further restrict protection of our border and people against attacks of PKK terrorists nested in Iraq if we don't agree to their Great National Lie which is they are in Iraq only to bring democracy and protect their land where thousands miles away form their country !!!!
"A fact is a fact, and the Turkish Armenian Genocide is a fact of history."
A fact is a fact, and the USA American Indian Genocide is a fact of history.
A fact is a fact, and USA used atomic bomb in human history is a fact of history.
A fact is a fact, and USA is a nation raised on blood of slaves from Africa and American Indians is a fact of history.
A fact is a fact, and American People are mainly fiercefull Europian Invaders who are massacred American Indians, took their lands and prisoned them in small regions called reservations.
"We are the world's only superpower. We use our power prudently and judiciously, but we use it if we must. When we use our power, we use it decisively and effectively."
Yes you are the world's only superpower for the time being. But for the rest that you say : even babies are laughing as said in Turkish. I would buy it if I was not aware of Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam
Let's cut the chase. All I wrote above are bullshit.. All you wrote are bullshit. If you wanna argue, somebody argue you back. Be carefull about your sin before throwing first stone.
If you are and Armenians are so sure that it ia a fact , why you and they are fooling around in congress in US , in France. Why do not you go to a court. If somebody sure he is right , he does not spend time to get approval, or bullies around to make people to support/believe him. He goes to court , gets a verdict and put his oppenent in jail. Jewish did that to Nazis. Bosnian did that Serbians.
Armenians claim genocide since 1915. They just brought this to congresses but never to any court. Instead in 1980s they did terrorist attacks. They killed Turkish officers abroad and killed innocent bystanders Turkish and foreigners.
"Delaying the House vote on the Armenian Genocide "until the timing is better" is nothing more than bowing and scraping, allowing ourselves to be extorted by a coven of Islamist bullies, and it sets a terrible precedent we cannot live with in the future.
We are the world's only superpower. We use our power prudently and judiciously, but we use it if we must. When we use our power, we use it decisively and effectively. We don't use our power, or delay legislation in our sovereign nation, because we've been extorted by a nation whose power is inferior to ours"
Who is the bully here. I am a superpower. If I say this is a fact, it is a fact. You can't be against that. I do not need to prove my claim. You can't defense yourself. I do not need any court order. Just like I did in Iran, I do what I want. I do not any proof. It is true when I say so. Even historians do not agree. Even owner of this claims, do not have courage to bring this to court. I act by myself. Because as a superpower I am the defender of all Christians. I do not mind genocides against people of other religions
I wonder how Americans do not understand why all world hate them !.
