Where Is the Armenian Government?

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

The news media are buzzing with details about the fight over the Armenian genocide resolution, H. Res. 106. We hear from Bush, Rice, Fried, Kissinger, Albright, Gul, Erdogan, etc., and we hear from the Armenian Diaspora; but where are the Armenian Government officials at this crucial time? This is the perfect opportunity for them to be heard in support of their people. Why are they not speaking up loudly in defense of Armenian interests? It reminds of the comparative silence in the Lebanese Government as Israel bombed Lebanon into stubble.
