Republicans (and Chet Edwards) Come Out to Blast Turkey Genocide Resolution

When is genocide NOT genocide? When the Bush administration says it isn't because it wants to keep a military base in Turkey. Just more hypocrisy on the part of the Bush administration, whose cries about freedom and democracy ring hollow in the face of opposition like this. Shame on Chet Edwards for joining with the Republicans who are on the PR path this weekend. -But of course war and its profits trump humanity.

North Texas lawmakers are jumping into the congressional debate on a genocide resolution aimed at Turkey, amid concerns that it could undercut relations with a valuable U.S. ally and erode a dependable market for the North Texas defense industry...

Reps. Joe Barton, R-Arlington, and Chet Edwards, D-Waco, also plan to oppose the resolution, their media aides said Friday. Rep. Kenny Marchant, R-Coppell, was traveling and unavailable for comment, a spokesman said.

On the other hand, Armenians cheered the US for the resolution.

Armenian lawmakers gave a prolonged standing ovation after a U.S. House panel OK'd a resolution calling the World War I-era killings of Armenians by Turks genocide.

"We express our gratitude to our colleagues in Congress who demonstrated great moral qualities and, not giving in to different pressures, voted for the resolution," said Tigran Torosian, chairman of the National Assembly in the capital of Yerevan.

Armenian President Robert Kocharian called for "a full recognition by the United States of America of the fact of the Armenian genocide."
