Armenian Genocide Bill Could Spell More Trouble in Iraq

Bush urges 'no' vote on Armenian genocide bill

The administration, while acknowledging the tragedy in which 1.5 million were killed, says the resolution in Congress would damage relations with key ally Turkey.
Purely pragmatically, I have to agree with them. We can't keep dumping on Turkey and expecting them to continue to help us on Iraq.

Unfortunately, the genocide was real so that can't be ignored, but what is more important? People who died tragically almost 100 years ago, or people who may die as a result of further hamstringing U.S. operation in Iraq?

Sounds harsh but that is the reality.
