    Harper hasn't visited Iran, Venezuela, Pakistan or North Korea either. Ignoring historical fact (genocide) and abandoning principles to garner favour with burgeoning economies is the Obama way, not Harper's.

    Turkey wants to run from the Genocide it performed on the Armenians. Now they do the same to the Kurds. If another great war comes, they will do to the Kurds what they did to the Armenians.

    Now they are just killing them when they can. In a great war, it will be rounding them up, forced marches and mass murders.

    Like they did to the Armenians.

    They weren't very nice to the Bulgarians either.

    It might be worth noting that the Government of Turkey is quite a different animal than it was back then. Blaming the nation Turkey as the same as the Ottoman government is a bit of blood libel

    I really don't understand what the fuss is all about?

    The alleged genocide took place a hundred years ago.

    What would the Armenians gain if the Turkish government acknowledged that it happened?

    This is not about blame. It is about human expiation of wrongs and genocide is considered one of the greatest crimes against man. Armenia demands recognition for what was done to them as a people.

    Turkey pretends that they didn't slaughter the entire Armenian population of Anatolian Turkey.

    They are all gone. Turkey thinks they walked away? :cuckoo:

    Turkey will never take blame for what happened. Anyway, now they are busy killing Syrians who are fleeing the Assad government, actually I think we should be doing more to help Syrians get rid of Assad instead of worrying about Libya. Assad was building an alliance with Iran and Turkey, Turkey is up to no good and Harper should not go there while Turkey is working with Iran.

    Turkey did NOT exist in 1915. How can a Country be responsible for actions taken BEFORE they ever existed?

    Turkey was created by genoicide of the Armenians and theft of their country.

    Of course it didn't exist. The Armenians of the land now called Anatolian Turkey and the land that was called Armenia is now tiny because the land now called Turkey is full of Turks and no Armenians.

    Go figure?

    I guess I was answering the question of what Harper should do, not what he will do, what's the problem?
