Turkish Troofer Movement

I guess the sickness is spreading. The house moves to condemn the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Turkish Communists are wiggin':

the youth branch of the extreme leftist Workers’ Party laid a black wreath at the entrance to the United States Embassy and spray-painted the Turkish flag onto an Embassy wall. The group held Turkish flags, posters of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic, and banners reading, “Armenian genocide is an imperialistic lie,” the Anatolian agency reported.

This is why I like the resolution. Anything that pisses off groups with titles like "Workers’ Party" makes me horny. Also, Turkey is an "ally" that refused to allow us to fly through their space in the initial invasion of Iraq. They just elected an Islamist as President. Screw them. I'm sick of us pandering to our second-world allies. They should be pandering to us and begging for us not to vaporize them.

But interesting how useless this whole gambit is: us condemning the Armenian Genocide while ignoring the dozen or so genocides that came afterwards. How about a resolution condemning the Khmer Rouge or Mao? No no no, their hearts were on the right place.
