    Absolute stupidity. First they were for it, now they're against it because it offends someone. What a bunch of damned pansies.

    Of course, we now have the worst of both worlds. We have already angered the Turkish nationalists. Now we will anger the Armenian nationalists.

    Is there any more wise foreign policy advice from Congress? What about a resolution condemning the Greeks and Azerbaijanis and Georgians?

    I think a lot of these would-be Talleyrands and Metternichs would like us to withdraw immediately from Iraq, just at the point that we may have turned the corner there and have the possibility of getting a not-very-good result instead of an utter disaster.

    Okay, as Churchill said, it's the worst form of government in the world except for all the others.

    Agreed. Rubbery principles indeed.

    A resolution condemning House Dems for being spineless morons might work.

    "We are ready to rule." What a freakin' joke THAT is. More like "We are ready to cave.":badgrin:

    This genocide resolution had to have been one of the dumbest things to come out of Congress in some time.

    And that's saying something.

    Looks like Tweedledee and Tweedledum are in Congress.
