Thirsday Linkfest: Pelosi Gives The Bird To Turkey

I guess she is ignoring former rented Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry's quote "We need to be smarter about how we wage a war on terror. We need to deny them the recruits. We need to deny them the safe havens. We need to rebuild our alliances. "

Pelosi flips the bird(Washington Times) Not content with undermining the war effort in Iraq, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has apparently set her sights on Turkey, a NATO ally and one of the few Muslim-majority nations in the world that is a democracy. Mrs. Pelosi has scheduled a vote in April on a resolution (H. Res. 106) that accuses Turkey's Ottoman Empire of perpetrating "genocide" resulting in the death or displacement of nearly 2 million Armenians between 1915 and 1923. With the United States currently fighting a war for its very survival against radical Islamists, Congress should have much more important priorities than revisiting events that occurred more than 80 years ago — particularly when doing so has the potential to do serious damage to U.S. relations with Turkey, whose cooperation will be critical to U.S. efforts to stabilize Iraq.

I'm not really sure what this would accomplish, other then demolishing our alliances. Oh, wait, that's right

But H. Res. 106 has far more to do with the power of ethnic lobbies in Washington than with larger U.S. foreign policy interests. The reality is that Armenian and Greek lobbying organizations hostile to Turkey command far more power in Washington than do pro-Turkish groups. And in their effort to settle old scores dating back to World War I, they have the potential to damage our current ability to maintain Turkey's cooperation in stabilizing Iraq, where upwards of 140,000 American troops are stationed, and to do grave damage to our relationship with an ally of long standing, a country that has long been a bulwark against regional rogue states like Syria. For many years, Turkey was the only Muslim nation in the Middle East to have trade and diplomatic relations with Israel.

Wasn't Pelosi going to do away with this type of influence by lobbyists?

Anyhow, I wonder when she will submit the legislation condemning the United Nations and Clinton administration for turning away as 850K+ Rwandans were slaughtered in 1994. And, how about the North Carolina Democratic Party for the Wilmington massacre, and for their general treatment of Blacks overall. And let's not forget the millions killed in Southeast Asia once the Democratic Congress forced a pullout from Vietnam. Lot's of blood on the Democrats hands.
