Deny, Deny, Deny

Today El Presidente Bush made an extremely classy speech in front of the White House today, urging heavily against a House resolution that labels the killings of Armenians in Turkey during World War I as a "genocide."

Why you ask? Because God forbid we piss off Turkey, a key ally in the war on terror:

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said good relations with Turkey are vital because 70 percent of the air cargo intended for and 30 percent of the fuel consumed by the U.S. forces in Iraq flies through Turkey.

So essentially, we have to be nice to Turkey to help us fight the war in Iraq and deny the senseless slaughter of Armenians so long ago. Nice, just nice.
