ISTANBUL: A planned vote in the U.S. Congress that would classify the widespread killings of Armenians by the Ottoman Turkish government early in the 20th century as genocide is threatening to make bilateral relations unusually tense.

The speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, backs the resolution and at first wanted a vote in April. But under Turkish pressure, Bush administration figures have lobbied for the Democrats in charge of Congress to drop the measure.<hr /></blockquote> THIS (http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/03/30/news/turkey.php) is nothing more than an attempt to:

1-Harm the war effort.
2-Urinate off the only Muslim democracy in the area besides Iraq.

and is damaging relations with a very valuable ally in the region.

Now, OTOH, if it was an opportunity to suck face with a nation sponsoring the murder of our citizens, like Syria, Pelosi and pals would be right there.
