They're just following the example of our leaders

Just this past week the House Foreign Affairs Committee approved a resolution condemning Turkey for slaughtering Armenians between 1915 and 1923. Of course, it's election year, so no one in Congress will dare touch REAL issues, like Social Security's looming insolvency, or Medicare going bankrupt even sooner, but do they have to intentionally anger a Middle-Eastern NATO ally with a secular government that is already under attack from Islamic extremists....for something that happened over eighty years ago, and cannot be undone? Oh, but the twenty-seven idiots on that committee who voted for this resilution definitely locked in the oh-so-huge Armenian American vote....and that's all they care about. Rest assured, when someone keeps dragging up the past, they have parochial reasons for doing so. In the case of those congressmen, it was cheap vote-buying. In the case of the 1898 riots, it's a blatant search for financial gain.
