Biden Mentions Armenian Genocide, Turks go apeshit

Biden calls mass killing of Armenians a genocide

Turkey’s foreign minister had warned the Biden administration that the designation would harm relations with the U.S. and be met with a strong reaction.

The Turks must be put in their place

Biden officially recognizes the killing of more than a million Armenians by Ottoman Turks more than a century ago as genocide.

Risking a potential fracture with Turkey is a price more than worth paying to signal our commitment to global human rights and to call things by their right names. What the Turks did to the Armenians was genocide. I commend Biden for calling it that.
