The President has decided not to label the Armenian genocide, genocide.
He promised to do this thing (I’m not Armenian) and although the actual controversy means nothing to me, I can’t figure out why the president is going so far out of his way to anger, inflame, aggravate and/or piss off virtually every ally the United States has ever had and make friends with, payoff, and even allow the construction of a nuclear bomb, among our traditional foes.
To some degree I understand his core premise, that the U.S itself was an instigator of these problems and changing our attitude toward our enemies might change all that.
Although I admire him for his courage and Christian values in making these assumptions, I think the world record concerning his policies is now on view and it isn’t pretty. The United States wasn’t the problem in all these countries after all; that was just Democratic Party nonsense to get in the White House. These countries are led by killers who want power and want to destroy the U.S. are they most definitely are the problem not the U.S..
Read this tidbit below and tell me if you don’t see the amazing hypocrisy in the White House position here. They want the world to engage in a full, frank and just acknowledgment of the facts – but refuse to do exactly that themselves after repeatedly promising his supporters he would.
Never in my entire life, including Nixon, have I seen a President lie as much as this one.
From the L.A. Times — White House officials have decided that President Obama will not use the word “genocide” to describe the killings of more than 1 million Armenians at the hands of Ottoman Turks when he commemorates the deaths Friday, the 100th anniversary of the massacres.
The decision, revealed Tuesday in a meeting with Armenian American groups, backs down from a previous Obama pledge and sparked anger from activists.
“The president’s surrender represents a national disgrace,” said Aram Hamparian, executive director of the Armenian National Committee of America. “It is a betrayal of the truth, and it is a betrayal of trust.”
White House officials released a statement after the meeting with Armenian American groups, which did not use the word “genocide.”
The statement from National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said the U.S. would use the anniversary of the massacres to “urge a full, frank, and just acknowledgement of the facts that we believe is in the interest of all parties.”
I would say I can’t wait until 2016 but I’m afraid we might be in a world war by then the way this administration is handling foreign affairs.
