“Clinton says US administration will block ‘genocide’ vote”
unless the -ocide is against the helpless pre-born...”we’re all for murdering those who don’t yet have a voice and can’t defend themselves” Clinton said.......
Of course not, the Armenians are Christian. The Turks are Muslim.

This happened 100 years ago, has Congress not declared it was genocide at some point?
Turkey is a major energy partner of the UK.
No, they refuse to acknowledge it for fear of Turkey. To my knowledge only President Reagan called it what it was. Genocide.
Seperation of powers be damned.
Viewer discretion advised:
No one involved in the Armenian genocide is alive today, so who is this resolution aimed at?
Now that they have a committed Muslim in change seems like a good time to stand up to them.
Remember we have a senatorial government now, so we don’t have a real separation of powers.
“St. Vardan and the first war for the Christian faith.
Meanwhile, Armenia lost independence. Over the next 200 years the eastern provinces were ruled by the Persian marzpans. A number of insurrections took place during that period. The most famous among them was the so-called Vardanank, War of St.Vardan in 451, described in details by Eliseus and Lazarus Barbedzi. The Persian King Yazdegerd II tried to put an end to Christianity in Armenia, and to disseminate the doctrine of Zoroaster. Armenians revolted when the numerous Persian priests were sent to Armenia to build temples and conduct fire worship.
On May 6, 451 a horrifically bloody battle took place in the Avarayr place. 66 thousand Armenians heroically fought the overwhelmingly superior Persian troops. Most of the Armenian lords including St.Vardan fell in battle, but Armenia undoubtedly won a great moral victory. Over 60 thousand of Persian soldiers were killed, and Yazdegerd’s hopes were dashed. That was the first known war for Christian faith in history.”
There you have it.
The Zero Administration continues to back the Islamofascist.
Maybe Hilary-the -Beast should be asked WHY the Turks should NOT be called to account.
Maybe a few of these photos would help.
Turkey proved to be of dubious strategic value when it refused to allow U.S. troops to use Turkish soil to invade Iraq. The loss of the northern pincher resulted in a significant amount of the post-invasion chaos. The resolution has been a source of contention for years between the large Armenian-American community and the Turkish lobby.
This is clearly unconstitutionla. The executive branch has no authority when it comes to control of the legislative branch in this fashion.
Socialist, Dictators are in style.
We will convey, said Barack Obama to the Turkish Parliament Monday, our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world including in my own country.
Presidents have been doing this since Washington left office.
