To every thing there is a season

Is it not interesting that our leftist opponents believe that we need to work with our allies, to not offend them, to be coöperative and conciliatory, and then they try to push through a resolution (non-binding at that: so what’s the use?) that will do nothing but offend and alienate a key ally?

There is no doubt whatsoever that the Armenians suffered a genocide at the hand of Ottoman Turks. And it is important that we recognize this fact. But, I submit to you, that there is a time and place for everything. Now is not the time; Congress is not the place.

We should not deny the genocide, but at the same time we need to realize the damage our actions can cause us. Turkey is–whether we like it or not–a key ally. We need Turkey. Especially with Iran beginning to rise as a potential military threat, we will sorely need Turkey to smash Iran. And trust me, people’s pride can be such an element that they would be willing to suffer immense destruction rather than submit to one whom they believe has offended them.

It is almost like we want to punish an ally for helping us with the Iraq War. They may not have helped us during the liberation, but they help us now.

    If Turkey wants to be in the EU; they will, sooner or later, have to fess up to the crime.

    But in fact it is exactly like the congressional dems want to cut off our principle supply lines into Iraq. Thus doing and end-run around the Executive’s Constitutional power to wage war.

    Again.

    Hello Muslihoon, Evil Con Carne wanted to say hello to you.

    He says “Hi” and says you are his favorite Innocent Bystander.

    Hope you’re well.

    Hi Musli’ (If I may shorten),

    Looks like the resolution Pelosi(?) was pushing has been withdrawn. And – yes – there surely seem to be a concerted effort to screw up our relations with our allies since the Leftist traitors can’t directly block the Iraq effort.

    Someday perhaps our law enforcement branch will wake up and prosecute the many acts of pure (and provable) treason occurring in government almost daily by the Leftist party.
