Let Turkey throw a tantrum over Armenian genocide recognition

This year is the centennial of the Armenian genocide and even though April 24 (the date that commemorates the Armenian genocide) has long passed, countries and other organizations continue to recognize this dark period of history.

Recently, the Latin American Parliament joined the Chamber of Deputies of Chile, Federal Senate of Brazil and Legislature of Rio de Janeiro in recognizing the genocide.

I hope the latest political game played by the Turkish government, in joining the fight against ISIS but bombing the Kurds, will make the United States government finally realize that our so-called “ally” is really a wolf in sheep’s wool, and we shouldn’t care if it throws its usual childlike tantrum.
