Turkey and Armenia Sign an Accord

No seriously, it happened. According to YahooNews, today in Switzerland, in front of Hilary "My husband is not the Secrtary of State" Clinton and Sergey "Who the f*&^ are you to lecture me" Lavrov, an accord was signed by Turkey and Armenia.

The contentious issue of whether the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians during the final days of the Ottoman Empire amounted to genocide is only hinted at in the agreement, which calls for diplomatic ties for the first time and the opening of the border within two months.

About 10,000 protesters rallied Friday in Armenia's capital to oppose the signing, and a tour of Armenian communities by Sarkisian sparked protests in Lebanon and France, with demonstrators in Paris shouting "Traitor!"

See? Everything is all better now. Oh, wait...
