Bush: The Armenian Genocide Isn't A Genocide

Dear President Bush,

Please consult your dictionary. You will find this;

gen·o·cide /ˈdʒɛnəˌsaɪd/ [jen-uh-sahyd]
the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group.

I personally side with Turkey on the Kurdish issue, but it is time to fess up to what they did to the Armenians 90 years ago. This is in no way a criticism of our Turkish friends. We accept that our German friends and Japanese friends committed brutual war crimes in the past.

On the Kurdish issue, Turkey has every right to send troops into Northern Iraq if their territory is being attacked. We were warned this may happen before we decided to do our G.I. Joe testostorone soaked invasion of Iraq three years ago, but as usual, our government did not listen.

And WE are the ones preaching restraint to the Turkish? US? Well, isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?
