Why isn't the killing of 1.5 million Armenians officially called a 'genocide'?

The Big Question: The killings have been described as the 'first mass atrocity of the 20th Century' by President Obama

Azerbaijani Army and Syrian Jihadis Launch Attack on Armenian Lines

https://t.co/5jDqfSKOKs?amp=1

"During the last weeks there was news that Turkey was hiring some 2,000 'Syrian rebels' to fight in Azerbaijan against Armenian forces which since 1993 occupy Nagorno-Karabakh. Earlier today the Azerbaijani forces and the mercenaries launched their attack on Armenian lines. It was a massacre.

Two Azerbaijani helicopters were shot down. Some 10 tanks and armoured troop transports went up in flames. Azerbaijani artillery hit some civilian structures in Stepankert, the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh. Turkish(?) drones hit Armenian front positions. The situation might well escalate from here on..."

 

"Recent aggressive statements of Azerbaijan's leadership, large-scale joint military exercises with Turkey, as well as rejection of OSCE PRCiO monitoring requests clearly indicate this aggression was pre-planned and constitutes a large-scale provocation against regional peace and security."

"Clashes between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces continued in the contested Nagorno Karabakh region on September 27, evening. Azerbaijan, supported by Turkey, seeks to take control over the entire region and dismantle the Nagorno-Kabarabackh Republic, a self-proclaimed state with an Armenian majority integrated into Armenia..."

A full-scale regional war is a distinct possibility.

Armenia has just signed into law order banning men 18+ from leaving the country. Martial law is in place and full-scale mobilization is occurring. Armenians outside the country are trying to return home to enlist. It is hard to overstate how existential this battle is seen there.

Canada Halts Sale of Drone Gear to Turkey Over Alleged Use in Nagorno-Karabakh, Ankara Dubs it 'Double Standards'

https://on.rt.com/arul

"Canada has halted sales of drone sensors to Turkey over fears they could be used to help Baku fight Armenians in disputed Nagorno-Karabakh. Ankara responded by recalling Ottawa's arms exports to states in involved in the Yemeni war. Turkish diplomats recalled that Ottawa has been less principled when it comes to exporting arms to other warring parties around the world.

Canada 'did not see any problem in exporting weapons to countries that were militarily involved in the crisis in Yemen, which was one of the greatest humanitarian tragedies of this century, Ankara noted. Thriving Canadian weapons exports to Saudi Arabia have almost doubled since 2018, amounting to $2.9 billion in 2019, according to estimates..."

And this despite the massive ongoing national protests by Canadian progressives against this obscene arms trade too! (NOT)
