Can't say I'm surprised, really:

President George W Bush has urged US legislators not to pass a resolution declaring the massacre of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire to be genocide.

"This resolution is not the right response to these historic mass killings," he said hours before a vote by the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

What might the right response be, then? Perhaps the House Foreign Affairs Committee could call for Turkish reparations to be paid to the families of those who died in the "historic mass killings."

The vote on the resolution, which Jewcy has been supporting together with our Armenian comrades at No Place for Denial, takes place today at 1:30. Here's the website at which you can watch the proceedings live.

Meanwhile, Turkey has been strong-arming the easily wilted Nancy Pelosi.

And Foxman's latest weasel words: "We are opposed in the sense that we do not believe this is the place it should be resolved. We may change our minds we may not."
