“For those who aren’t aware, there was a genocide that did take place against the Armenian people. It is one of these situations where we have seen a constant denial on the part of the Turkish government and others that this occurred. It has become a sore spot diplomatically.” – Barack Obama
April 25 will mark the 92nd anniversary of the Armenian genocide, which will be marked by commemorations worldwide.
Several governors have declared the day to be a remembrance of the genocide and 40 states have recognized it, as has the New York Times. It is long past time for it to be recognized officially by the US government, despite D.C. troglodytes who would ignore the deaths of 1.5 million rather than offend Turkey.
