“Hey, what happened to the baloney, man?” (From a Cheech and Chong skit)  It’s being sliced thick and served hot in D.C.  There is a debate raging through the Halls of Congress and a horde of lobbyists scurrying about over what to call the 1915-16 extermination of 1.5 million Armenians by the Muslim Ottoman Turk government.  The Armenians want us to call it genocide.  The jihadi Turks just want this thing to go away, so they can get through the gates of The European Union and move on to the final Muslim conquest of Vienna and the West.

 During his 2008 campaign, President Obama promised to call out the Turks for the “genocide”.  Now he’s singing a different tune and telling us everyone needs to get over this thing by calling it “atrocities”.  It’s all halal baloney, no matter how you slice it.  The Muslim Ottoman Empire systematically wiped out a huge segment of its Armenian population during WWI.  Call it genocide or call it jihad.  It was mass slaughter.  Today’s Washington Post includes a hand-wringing piece by Dan Eggen:

“Each year, Armenian Americans remember the massacres of hundreds of thousands of men, women and children in the aftermath of World War I. And each year, Congress becomes embroiled in a bitter debate between Armenia and Turkey over whether to label the episode as genocide.

The dispute has set off a lobbying frenzy this year in the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Chairman Howard L. Berman (D-Calif.) is scheduled to hold a vote Thursday on a nonbinding resolution that calls on President Obama to formally refer to the 1915 massacre as genocide and to use the term during an annual address on the topic next month…

… A contingent of members of the Turkish parliament visited Washington this week before the vote to meet with key lawmakers of both parties, warning that approval of the genocide resolution would hurt relations between the two countries, including cooperation with the United States on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq…”

A little well-placed threat sometimes works wonders, now, doesn’t it.  Did I just read a threat there?

“…A similar vote in committee in 2007 led Turkey to recall its U.S. ambassador and prompted a furious effort by the Bush administration to scuttle a full House vote…”

 By golly, that was a threat.  I’m sure of it now.

 There is documentary evidence that the slaughter of Armenians actually happened, here.  Oddly, Turkey has not responded to the evidence.

 So, the D.C. baloney slicing continues as the jihad rolls on, the OIC runs the U.N., and no one in the Halls of Power seems to have a clue yet as to what is driving all this madness.  The answers can be found here, here, and here.
