(30) Despite the international recognition and affirmation of the Armenian Genocide, the failure of the domestic and international authorities to punish those responsible for the Armenian Genocide is a reason why similar genocides have recurred and may recur in the future, and that a just resolution will help prevent future genocides.
The House of Representatives:
(1) calls upon the President to ensure that the foreign policy of the United States reflects appropriate understanding and sensitivity concerning issues related to human rights, ethnic cleansing, and genocide documented in the United States record relating to the Armenian Genocide and the consequences of the failure to realize a just resolution; and
(2) calls upon the President in the President's annual message commemorating the Armenian Genocide issued on or about April 24, to accurately characterize the systematic and deliberate annihilation of 1,500,000 Armenians as genocide and to recall the proud history of United States intervention in opposition to the Armenian Genocide.
1/ What do you think of State-sponsored Negationism (like the one you have in Turkey)?
2/ Why do you think that Turkey's goverment still vehemently denies this tragic event of their history, almost a century after it was done? What purpose do you think such staunch denial have?
3/ Why did the US goverment wait so long to officially declare it was a genocide?
4/ What do you think of paragraph (30) of the HR252 Resolution?
5/ Do you think that such a resolution is useful or not? Why?
6/ To add some controversy: Should States always mess with the official writing of history, or rather let historians do their job?
7/ Do you think this resolution is special, and why?
