Not Forgotten

Spoke with an old veteran about the recent vote on the Armenian genocide this weekend. You have to wonder why the Foreign Affairs Committee chose to bring this up at this time (other than its anniversary).
(Reuters) - A U.S. resolution that branded as genocide the killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks during World War One will seriously damage U.S.-Turkish relations, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday.
He didn't have much nice to say about the Turks. He's also Russian Orthodox and sympathetic to the Armenians. Just in case you thought this was a non-issue, he got wound up and gave me an earful for the better part of an hour and a half.

Nope. Not forgotten.
