Would Pelosi Stop Kurds From Being Massacred or Simply Condemn it Afterwards?

Would Dems protect people from being massacred? Or would they simply take a vote and say it's bad after it's over?

    Turkey has been killing Kurds and treating their own Kurdish minority very badly for decades. They were quite happy with the way Saddam Hussein treated the Kurds(they were the ones poisoned by chemicals,remember?)and not at all happy with the new Iraq in which the Kurds have established their own territory and govern it. They have been spoiling for a chance to invade it and destabilize the Kurds there.

    It is a clear indication of just what weak,unreliable allies they have always been. Just as they attacked our NATO ally ,Greece, in the 1970's- even when we begged them not to-,now they have every intention of going after the Kurds. Nothing Pelosi or anyone else does will influence them. Turkey is also interested in annexing the very oil rich Kurdish lands of Iraq.

    Turks massacred the Armenians and will do the same to the Kurds if given half a chance. Yet we continue to give

    $$$ and arms to ¨our ally¨ Turkey.

    EDIT.(brief history: WHO ARE THE KURDS?)

    Most Kurds are Sunni Muslims who were converted in the 7th century.These fair skinned speakers of Iranian were always fiercely independent nomadic mountain dwellers of the Zagros region(KURDISTAN,Land of the Kurds) who resisted domination. After the First World War they were supposed to have been given their homeland by the Treaty of Sèvres but actually were ignored and Kurdistan was divided up by Iraq,Turkey,Iran,Syria and what used to be Soviet Armenia. So they were cheated out of their political Kurdish state and Kurds have had to live as minorities in those countries. Turkey,for instance, has always cracked down hard on them. Atatürk only wanted a racially pure Turkey and ,like the Armenians,the Kurds didn't fit in with this plan. Kurds have a legitimate grievance against Turkey.

    Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats would wring their hands and cry, then they would blame it on us. They do not understand that this is what will happen if we do not finish the war in Iraq. They still do not understand that this is why the massacre of millions in Vietnam and Cambodia occurred. Like Mama always said you must finish what you start.

    Pelosi and the Dems do seem to spend all of their energy criticizing others and don't seem to have any left to actually do anything.

    It's the reason John Kerry lost the last election.

    Since she's basically the House Rep. Republican Majority Leader over there, she'll do whatever the President, her Fuhrer, orders her to do. She's not a democrat, by the way. She's a part of the One-Party System that has complete control of everything BushCheney do. Don't be surprised if there's no national election next year, either. She and Harry Reid are positioning themselves for a permanent position in the Bush White House for years and years to come.

    why do you want a terrorist group protected? Bush says we have to fight all terrorist, so we need to be supporting Turkey against the Kurds who have been attacking into Turkey for years to try to lead an uprising in the Kurdish region of Turkey.

    No doubt taking a page from the UN's book they would harshly condemn the perpetrators and then "moveon".
