QuoteOriginally posted by: gardener3 I find it rather idiotic that somehow the us congress thinks it can determine what constitutes genocide and which genocides are important in history.it seems that you are opposed to the US congress following 22 other countries and recognizing the killing of 1.75 MILLION armenians under the cover of WW1 and 700,000 armenians immediately after the war as genocide.Not to forget the Turkish massacres of Armenians in 1894, 1895, 1896 (300,000 dead between them), and 1909 (30,000 dead?)I do not recall you taking a similar position on Tuesday, June 27 when the US Congress House of Representatives adopted a resolution demanding that those responsible for the Srebrenica massacre be brought to justice.Reportedly 7800 died at Srebenica.I find it rather idiotic that somehow gardener thinks he can determine what constitutes genocide and which genocides are important in history.Nor do I recall him mentioning that in WW2QuoteThousands of Jews, Serbs and Gypsies were exterminated in Croatian camps. At the most infamous of these, Jasenovac, close to 100,000 victims was killed-and not by gas- but by the bullet, the club or knife. In Bosnia, similar massacres of Serbs took place. The Muslims of Bosnia often assisted the Ustashi killers. Later in the war, the Germans recruited a Muslim SS Division, which gained notoriety for its atrocities against the Serbian civilian population.Quote "I am confident that the whole history of the human race contains no such horrible episode as this. The great massacres and persecutions of the past seem almost insignificant when compared with the sufferings of the Armenian race in 1915." Henry Morgenthau, American ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, 1913-1916QuoteAdolf Hitler at an August 1939 military meeting, prior to the invasion of Poland: I have issued the command -- and Ill have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad -- that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formation in readiness -- for the present only in the East -- with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space [Lebensraum] which we need. Who, after all, speaks to-day of the annihilation of the Armenians?
