I'm not quite sure either, but from what I've gathered:

1) A long time ago people in Turkey (or some other similar place with lots of sand) killed other people.

2) This was bad.

3) They need to be told this was bad.

4) We may or may not need to send them to timeout for 5 minutes.

I think the broad takeaways here are: if people are causing a problem, and you want to kill them, make sure you kill enough of them that they never will be a relevant voter demographic.

I think America could learn a lot about the Middle East peace process here.

Speaking of Middle East peace practices*, the final chapter in the infinitely long Benghazi hearings came to a close today as the GOP released their findings... that they didn't find anything. Time well spent, boys. I suppose their primary purpose of trying to smear Clinton might have been more successful than their fact finding if the GOP wasn't nominating Trump.

No, no, I'm pretty sure we got that lesson covered well enough.

The terms "Middle East" and "peace process" are at the opposite ends of the spectrum, almost to the point of having no relevance to each other at all. I suppose there is a process of sorts going on, but to what end, is anybody's guess. I imagine that we are in a period of stasis for the next decade, at which time Israel will be compelled to do something about Iran, unless some other unexpected event overtakes that part of the world and neutralizes the ayatollahs.

I dunno, you think if they do it now they could create enough of a storm? Zika virus + political scandals + security concerns = people pulling out of games?

Ya, that's probably still a long shot, maybe it is better to wait until there's a good target. People still went to the Greek games even though they didn't really finish building stuff. On the other hand, it would be less protected now if they hit now.

They have literal human body parts washing up on the beach. Who would even notice a bio-attack?

Person A: "I feel really sick today..."
Person B: "Must be that spleen you stepped in on your way to the store. That bloated one that exploded?"
Person A: "Yeah, probably. Or that glass of water with the green film I drank"
Terrorist: "What? No, it was me! Me! Pay attention to me!"

I was disappointed to see that Turkish airport cop not put one through the lamps of that terrorist who blew himself up. They shot him, the terrorist lost his AK, he rolled around a bit while the cop was standing over him, and then blew himself up 7 seconds later. Plenty of time to unload your entire magazine into the guy.

The Rio thing has potential disaster written all over it. The slums ring that city on the high ground. Gives the criminals a nice boost when they start running downhill to all those wealthy Olympic tourists. Add to that the police just went on strike, so that's looming.

Zika? Check.
Crime? Check.
Biohazardous waste? Check.
Venues with poorly constructed buildings? Check.
Sky-high AIDS infection rates? Check.
Political unrest in the host country? Check.

To offset these concerns we have Miss Bumbum. In fact, the city's beaches are filled with Miss Bumbums, so there's that. Bread and circuses, man, bread and circuses.

Your use of the words Miss Bumbum and your inflated idea of the effect of a thong bikini says a lot about you and your sense of mores.

Um, no, moron.

It's

1) Presidential candidate Barack Obama prior to being elected President made a promise to call the Armenian Genocide a "Genocide"
2) President Barack Obama, in his eighth year, still hasn't done this, and so never will. Broken promise. Significant even, to some who you are not.
3) And not that you care, but Turkey is currently also active in genociding Kurds. An acknowledgement of their past practices by a US President might help/have-helped quell this.

"from what I've gathered".

I imagine you gather a lot of inanity if you can't even figure this shit out, enough to the point of even putting 1/2/3/4 cheeky/inane bullet points about your overwhelming confusion and ridiculous post.

Grats for not being a surviving Jew or Kurd or Armenian of Genocide, so this is all academic to your sorry lousy-posting ***.

No, I'm not. Lied about it before though just to get a rhetorical angle at some dumb poster. Also, I'm mostly drunk. Mostly.

But also of course it's terrible that anyone could defend Obama for promising to call this a Genocide, then never do it. Excuse-wagons. Just call it a Genocide already. My drunken lies should not be relevant.

He promised to do lots of other things he didn't either. You see he's known in these parts as a 'politician'. It's usually better for your health if you keep your expectations low for those types.

And I'd equally be amazed if you ever took a stand on anything, ever. 50,000 posts and still just green, that must rattle your balls, since it means you just post a lot but aren't all that good at words and arguing your own stances and such. Just some kind of random get-along. Hey, you brought +1 whatever up. You suck at it, even after 50,000.

Nothing whether serious or satire indicated SPG had any problem with Obama not calling the Armenian Genocide a Genocide. And sorry, I'm not going to parse the psychology of posters/research them, if they post dumb **** when they instead could post something obvious like "yeah, Obama failed to call this a Genocide and this is bad and this is a bad mark upon his tenure." How hard is it to just point out the obvious? Christ you people in this thread [maybe not you though]. Obama sucks on this. How hard is that to admit plainly, without some kind of song and dance?
