Just admit it

So the Turkish government is furious because the House of Representatives has decided to pass a resolution condemning Turkey for the genocide of Armenians 92 years ago. It's taken that long. They are throwing a major hissy fit as they always do when the topic arises. I find it interesting, the cowardly, obsessive denial, when everybody knows they did it and it was a genocide.
So they can threaten the US with lack of support in that convoluted region, but they should own up to the appaling crimes of their forebears. Perhaps they would find that it's easier to live as a nation with a clear conscience and a sense of shame than with lies and obfuscations and ridiculous protestations that make them look like major assholes.
