Increasingly irrelevant

Can we cause problems with something even more irrelevant? Why should Congress be making determinations as to which past events were genocides?

While I generally like meaningless debates in Congress, since it keeps them too busy to do much real damage, but this is ridiculous. Almost 100 years ago, many Armenians were killed by many Turks. It's a bit late to punish anyone, actually fix the problem, or do anything else of value. And with libs whining about how our policies make the world hate us, you'd think that they'd be more careful.

I agree with you. But you have to remember that the people who are bringing this up in Congress aren't libs at all. They are democrats.

Makes as much sense as censuring the Normans for invading England in 1066; it has no relevance, so why stir up trouble. The Turkish government of the present day is not the one of a hundred years ago, so why get on their case?
