Կարծիքներ

Անկարայից մինչև Դրեզդեն. ճշմարտությունն ընդդեմ տեսակետի, երբ խոսքն իրականում դիվանագիտության մասին է

Անհիմն: Տգետ: Ատելի:

Որտե՞ղ են այս բառերը, երբ դրանք պետք են:

Ոչ Վաշինգտոնում:

Հաստատ ոչ Անկարայում այս ապրիլին:

Դրանք Դրեզդենում էին` ուրբաթ օրը, իմ հերոս և նախագահ Բարաք Օբամայի շուրթերին, և այդ բառերը ճշմարիտ էին ու անասելի սուր, ու բաժանում էին խելամիտ մարդկանց հիմարներից, ովքեր կարծում են, թե պատմությունն ընդունելը կյանքի ընտրություններից մեկն է:

Thank you for your straight forward opinion. Even though diplomats are different breed, I still think Obama is somwhat different from the most. I still keep my hopes alive and inclined to think that he gave one last chance to Turks to openly accept their shameful past or... maybe I am being naive again in diplomatic spider web.

This is exactly what I thought when I heard him say "baseless, ignorant, hateful." He also used those words in his Egypt speech: S"ix million Jews were killed - more than the entire Jewish population of Israel today. Denying that fact is baseless, ignorant, and hateful. Threatening Israel with destruction - or repeating vile stereotypes about Jews - is deeply wrong, and only serves to evoke in the minds of Israelis this most painful of memories while preventing the peace that the people of this region deserve."

Thank you for this article Good written!Maybe you could mail it to President Obama and his Staff.. ! Turkey’s diplomacy trying to get the maximum after Armenia has signed a so called „Road Map“ on 22 April 2009 : Following is the statement made by the Turkish Foreign Minster. Davutoğlus to reporters in Washington after his meetings with US administartion : !!!! “From now on, the Armenian issue should no longer be an issue blocking Turkish-American relations, and it will be so.” (Todayszaman 05 June 2009, Friday) I do not think - I hoppe I am mistaken- that in the next 4 years US Administration will risk any „ headache “with Turkey because of the historical facts and about Armenian Genocide and justice and so on . There are many reasons …: 1-The political situation in Armenia – deficit in human rights and democracy- are one of the biggest obstacles for the struggle of Diaspora for the recognition of Armenian Genocide. 2-In the last 50- 60 Years - and above all in 80´s - thousands of US citizens were killed by different “Islamic groups” mainly because of actions of Israeli government against Palestinian people and Arabs. US are still paying for the actions of Israeli government a high/heavy price (Many veteran US politicasn would prefer to keep silance about such facts)… As if these all were not enough, Today, US have to deal with all negative and disastrous consequences of an illegal war in Iraq and enmity with Iran, which backs to 1950´s as US overthrew the first democratic elected government in Iran (Mosadeq´s government)! Well, the Ayatolas in Iran are a well organize political force, well educated and flexible enough, which is not the case with the old ally and the latest enemy of US and GB – Taliban’s-. All these are reasons for the new US administration to avoid new tensions with Turkey. Today, Hillary Clinton and Obama would prefer to visit everyday a new mosque in a different Islamic country “to pray there for forgiveness” and “make a speech to the Islamic world” …explaining and justifying these and that… I think there speeches are written most likely by "veteran" failed politicians like Medellin Albright , Jimmy Carte , and Henry Kissingers . These are the same FAILED US politicians, who are partially responsible for the wrongdoing of US foreign policy… people like Albright and Kssingers know better than anybody else, what went wrong and what "presidnet Obama" should say ..! 3-Turkey, which is a shame for the "Islamic world", because of Armenian Genocide and destruction of the Christian folks and there old civilization in current Turkey, is gaining the most form the new approach of US Administration to the “Islamic world” . The trips of President Obama and his speeches to “the Islamic World and Turkey” to “Middle East /Islamic World” can be compared to the hopeless actions/steps of last politicans of lost and ruined German Empire in 1900´s – Notably the action/steps and speeches of the German´s Kaiser Wilhelm II. - Deutscher Kaiser und König von Preußen, who traveled to Ottoman Turkey and Middle East declaring himself: „The protector of the Islamic world“ . 4- US/ Obama’s Administration is following more and more in German’s Kaiser Wilhelm footsteps. Turkish diplomacy is well aware of the naivety and weakness of US diplomacy! Therefore new foreign Policy of Turkey called “ Neo Osmanism” has a easy job … Armenia and Armenian Diaspora should do almost everything to survive with join efforts the heavy turbulences produced by US administration, as to try minimize the harms for Armenian people taking account the naivety and helplessness of the new US administration.
