Sovereign, you simply can't ignore the fact that US relations with Turkey (or any other country) cannot be simply based on morality. In the real world, things are faaaaar more complicated. The simple truth is the US and Israel both heavily need Turkey on their good side in the region. If US pisses of Turkey and pushes it into the same realm as the rest of the US/Israel-hating countries of the region, you will get a very volatile situation become even more volatile.
I am not a fan of US ignoring the Armenian Genocide issue but I do understand why they are taking the position they are taking. What matters more now is good relations with Turkey ... a very powerful and geologically crucial piece of the global game. You can take as many ads in a paper as you want but what it comes down to is what is for the good of the many at this point in time (and not just the handful of Armenians in the world).
Nor can US relations with Armenians simply be based on morality; that's why Armenians must shout as loudly as they can that the emperor has no clothes in order to diminish the international standing of the the United States (as is largely deserved) so as to motivate the American ruling classes to change their tune regarding the genocide, Armenians and Turkey. When did I ever say I expect filth to become lovers of truth and justice overnight? My game plan is a very pragmatic one and I don't care anymore what they think or feel at this point as they've proven themselves conclusively less than human beings. Armenians must use the only real weapon we have. In our case it's the truth
that the so-called Christian America is in bed with the Moslem Turks that committed the cruelest genocide against the first Christian nation of the world. I repeated this to you guys at least ten times. If Armenians repeat this same sentence ten times in the international public arena, the international standing of America will diminish, no doubt about it. That's what we must strive for; a politically tarnished America will have less meddling power and less of a need for allies like the Turks, for its capacity to commit mischief in that part of the world will be constrained. If you know that no one's going to want to be on your team because you look like s--t in the eyes of the world, then you'll be less inclined to look for a fight. It's like killing two birds with one stone: No more horrible useless wars where millions of civilians are murdered by American mercenaries because American bankers and corporations want their oil or other natural resources, or simply enjoy killing human beings for the sake of justifying the existence and funding of their military-industrial complex; and no free ride for the abominable Turks to boot.
I know that you understand what I'm saying, like the rest of them. Why do you pretend otherwise? Why do you rationalize the deviant ways of the West? Why do you defend the indefensible American foreign policy regarding Armenians, the genocide and Turkey? Life is not just writing computer programs to make money to buy a house with a wife in it. Why is there no passion in any of you for what it means to be a human being?
