Mr. Simon, As long as “AMERICAN AFFAIRS” are American affairs, all United States Govt actions will be just….words. The time and scene of using the term ‘genocides’ particularly Jewish was recognized and accepted by International communities thereafter World War II. TODAY however, the official doctrine of establishing State of Israel, however, is being challenged by an increasingly hostile world political “community” instead of established Governments based on conservative principles. The Armenian ‘genocide’ however is controversial but accepted by most, but NOTHING (resolution) is recognized nor established by the International communities. All Colorado State does (as with any other US State) is recognize long-held international acceptance of genocides in those parts of the world. However CREDIT should be given to Colorado State (particularly to that “Republican”) for phrasing ‘atrocity’ than using ‘APOLOGY’ to American Indians that Barrack Obama “Democrat” officially signed in his tenure as US Govt. President. I wonder though if the Colorado State resolution used a disclaimer ..."as nothing in this resolution authorizes nor settles a settlement of any claim against the United States – signed Barrack Obama? Your story sounds more to political party affiliations than trying to understand a wrong committed to Indians throughout North America.
