Armenian Genocide

The Armenian Genocide Resolution has returned to headlines prior to Obama's visit to Turkey. The resolution labels the deaths of up to 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Empire starting in 1915 as "genocide." According to The Hill, past administrations have failed to recognize the World War I-era killings as genocide out of fear of damaging US-Turkey relations. Obama, however, made a campaign pledge to recognize the genocide, saying that the facts documenting the killings are "undeniable" and that "an official policy that calls on diplomats to distort the historical facts is an untenable policy." Of course, campaign promises to Armenians have been broken in the past, and Obama may decide to tread carefully with Turkey.

Hello, I am Lucy Setian, a journalist from Sofia, Bulgaria. I am the creator of the first bulgarian(but metalanguage!) blog about the Armenian genocide. I hope we could exchange links to our blogs. Here it is mine: http://armengenocide.blogspot.com/
