Haven't the Armenians have suffered enough?  The invasions and subjugation over history, the Armenian Holocaust, the Kardashians, and now this insult.

Well, so much for that improving Turkish-Armenian relationship that the AKP's been working towards since 2001.

Well, I'm not saying it didn't happen, or that it wasn't wrong...but have you seen the tacky McMansions that Armenians build in America? With the wrought iron fences with gold points, and the big stone lions, and the huge circular driveways covered in expensive cars? Maybe the Turks were just trying to enforce HOA codes.

They are called turkeys because Turks used to sell them, not the other way round.  Plus the turkeys you eat in America are all from Norfolk originally.  They are not native turkeys.  Gobble gobble gobble.

No, they were trying to exterminate them... This is all the Greeks' fault anyway. If they hadn't forcefully relocated groups people from Anatolia that had lived there for thousands of years, the Turkic tribes wouldn't have stood a chance of taking it over...

Maybe  ChipNASA was just pointing out something funny, and wasn't saying anything one way or the other about Obama.

If you say so. I personally think that mass firing squads and death marches point more toward HOA code enforcement than genocide, but we can agree to disagree.

My wife's Armenian. I've seen some pretty funny looking Armenians in the past 30 years, but for butt ugliness the Turks have them beat 12 ways to Sunday. Plus, in my experience they are almost all total douchebags. However, there does seem to be some competition between the two groups as to who has the uglier, more guttural language. For example, Sorpik, Salpie and Hrpsime are considered lovely women's names in Armenian.

As a teenager I went on a trip to Iran with my dad (the Shah was still in power). We started out in Van, Turkey and drove to the Iranian border. The Turkish kids looked like wizened old men. Once we crossed the border into Iran, the kids started looking like kids again. The Iranians were the nicest people you might ever want to meet, by the way. The Turks threw rocks at our bus as we drove through their towns.

One last Turkey story: we flew from Istanbul to Van to meet up with the bus. An elderly gentleman on the flight was pointing out the sights in French to some of our fellow tourists (my dad and I were the only Americans among a mainly European group). When the plane landed there was a huge crowd waiting in a circle around the tarmac. Every thirty feet or so was a guy sitting on a goat; that is, the goat was lying on its side and the guy was sitting on it to hold it down. As we were walking down the stairs a huge cheer broke out. It turned out the elderly gentleman was the Prime Minister of Turkey. The guys sitting on goats pulled out big knives and slit the throats of the goats to welcome their visitor. Blood spurted everywhere. We tourists looked at each other in dismay and the general comment was, "Welcome to civilization."
