Obama Rethinks Armenia

leave a comment »

“Armenian Genocide is not an allegation, a personal opinion or a point of view, but rather a widely documented fact supported by an overwhelming body of historical evidence. The facts are undeniable. … As president I will recognize the Armenian Genocide.” Barack Obama, Washington Post

Well, it turns out Obama Rethinks Genocide concerning Armenia and the slaughter in Turkey beginning in 1915. It’s a relevant debate; the way the world positions itself will mould future policies and actions concerning human rights disasters (had we been more forthcoming in taking a stand we may have been quicker in Rwanda). For more  on Turkey, check out this site: The Hurriyet News: Turkey’s English Daily.

There are people who think genocide did not happen, check out the comments after this article: Armenian “Genocide” May Alienate Turkey.
