    I really respect Ron Paul’s movement revolution and the whole liberty movement, but this blog entry is a very naive approach to the situation. It is tantamount to saying had the Nazis survived, that we should not get involved in acknowledging the events of the Holocaust. The Ottoman Empire does not exist anymore, neither does Hitler’s Nazi party. However many members of the Young Turk movement in the Ottoman Empire that carried out the Armenian Genocide became the founding fathers of the modern republic of Turkey. That’s like Goebbels and Goering not getting caught and forming their own post-Nazi party and setting up a political structure based on their ideals. Ron Paul really needs to revise his thoughts on the situation.

    I wanna know how many people on here know why armenians are coming up with this BS genocide claim. How many of you know crap about history?

    I’ll briefly tell you fools why armenians are screaming “genocide”…because they want the eastern part of Turkey! The part of Turkey that they could not get by fighting almost a century ago! Because armenia has been a 3rd world country since the day it’s been found and has horrible relations with its neighbors, it’s dirt poor! Whenever armenia is about to collapse, russia is the only nation that comes to its rescue since armenians helped russians end the Ottoman Empire. Armenians attacked their own government by allying with russia. Imagine the US is collapsing, and other nations are invading your land. Instead of protecting the land, imagine Latin-Americans allying with the enemy of the US and start killing Amerians because they want to form their own nation within the US. That is called “treason”! and if americans take precautions and fight back, it means they would be committing genocide???????

    East of Turkey is ridiculously oil-rich. Armenia has no army so it can’t invade Turkey to get that region. After armenia saw that jews got reparations from Germany, they started with their genocide claims in order to get land over the table! The reason why armenians spend millions on politicians and are trying to get major countries to pass this genocide bill is because armenians are trying to get those countries to blackmail Turkey so Turkey gives up eastern part of Turkey. For ex: because the US recognized the so called genocide claim (guess who got ridiculously rich along the way – US politicians), the US, now, can pressure and blackmail Turkey. It can say, “unless you give eastern part of Turkey to armenia, i will stop trading goods with you, and if i stop trading with you, the economy of your entire nation will collapse ” etc. Countries have countless arguments among each other, and they use them to get what they want. American politicians are getting rich while you are actually getting harmed along the way because Turkey is an important ally of the US and maybe the only Muslim ally in the middle east!

    This is just to give you fools some idea; there is much more to this. You know nothing. There was no genocide so shut the hell up.

        Look at the comments. They all think a genocide happened, and their comments are based on that assumption. That does make them fools. I write a comment and then i have to write a follow up comment in order to explain my initial comment. Ridiculous.

    I am sorry to hear about that and I do wish them well! I think other countries should help the Armenians! We help other countries, but we don’t even help out our country so that people can get back to work! & Libertarians aren’t always about the money! Although I do agree with them on many things!

      If there is something that you need to be sorry for, it should be for the fact that you’re an idiot and do not know crap:

    Between 1 and 1.5 million Armenian Christians were murdered, it was when the term “Genocide” was first coined. The Free Trade Libertarians don’t want to anger their Muslim Oil Masters. Money money money money.

    Money is everything to the Libertarians. They eat money, they bathe in money, they floss their teeth with money, they breath money, nothing is more important. Nation, family, health; doesn’t mean anything when there is MONEY to be made.

      @ Fred the Protectionist:

      Really? is that why they have not gone to the international court for the past century? Is that why armenia refuses to open its historical archives, refuses to discuss the matter with historians but buys politicians instead and spends millions to bribe one nation after another? You have no idea what you’re talking about. You might think you do just because you heard something here and there but you do not. Protectionist huh? oh man, this is hilarious
