The Turkey genocide resolution
Do we really need this? It’s a strange issue that’s resurfaced lately. As far as I know, no reputable historian believes the Ottoman empire didn’t commit genocide against the Armenians. Seeing as it has no bearing on current events and will antagonize an ally we’ll probably need in the future (unless the government is taken over by Islamists, after which it won’t matter) it seems like a bad idea.
I haven’t really figured out why Pelosi is pushing this, either. Does her district have a large Armenian population? I suppose it could be a roundabout way to restrict the war in Iraq, but that seems colossally stupid and irresponsible.
