In the continuing questioning of the timing of the Congressional resolution about the Armenian genocide, the one question I have doesn’t seem to be asked. That is, if the Democratic Party majority in Congress is so concerned about genocide, why aren’t they spending their efforts on the one in Darfur which might yet be stopped, instead of one that’s been over with for nearly a century? Is there plan to provide a similar opportunity for grandstanding and interferring with foreign policy for the 155th Congress? It is just bizarre to hear House Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer to invert this and use Darfur as the reason to push the resolution. But I suppose that’s what I should expect from a party leadership that values political gestures over any actual results.
