France Shows Balls, Asks Turkey to Admit Genocide Against Christian Armenians

Check out the big nads on France. France wants Turkey to acknowledge the World War One massacre of Armenians during negotiations on its membership of the European Union, Foreign Minister Michel Barnier said Monday.

Good freaking luck pal. The Turks will, let's say, show some reluctance to admit to the massacre of 1.5 million Christian Armenians. Sure, the Turks will say, a few Armenians died from "civil stife" but that was a long time ago, in World War One. It was regrettable. (But the Crusades, that's a contemporary topic.) And don't even think of mentioning reparations or letting the Armenian descendents of the displaced back to their homes. As for the Palestinians "refugees", their "right of return" must be addressed as part of any "peace agreement."

See how this works, France?
