    US administration to block vote on Turkey 'genocide'

    The Obama administration has said it will seek to block a controversial bill describing as genocide the World War I killing of Armenians by Turks.
    BBC News - US administration to block vote on Turkey 'genocide'

    ---------------------
    Suat Kiniklioglu, the influential deputy chairman for external affairs in the ruling Justice and Development party (AKP), warned of "major consequences" if the resolution was accepted by the full House of Representatives.

    "If they choose to bring this to the floor they will have to face the fact that the consequences would be serious – the relationship would be downgraded at every level," he said. "Everything from Afghanistan to Pakistan to Iraq to the Middle East process would be affected.


    Turkey threatens 'serious consequences' after US vote on Armenian genocide | World news | The Guardian


    I think Turkey will downgrade relations and cooperations in some of the areas we are working with USA. A sort of punishment for consuming our energy every f* year.
    You have to learn, that this is not a business of yours and you will remember next year.
    First thing without taking greater risk in foreign policy is abandoning Incirlik for US use.
    Nationalize Incirlik. Maybe that will fund your election campaigns or secure you American-Armenian votes.

    Very funny.
    There are 2 questions:
    1. How nasty USA wants to play
    2. How strong Turkey really is.

    US interests loose anyway. Make no doubt about that.

    Only the Turks don't think it was a genocide. They need to suck it up and grow the fuck up. Then again, they're Muslims - admitting you're wrong isn't in their vocabulary...

    Yeah, it was genocide, and, no, Turkey is not as strong as it thinks it is.
