This Day In History: St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

The massacre was a result of a plan devised by Capone’s gang member Jack ‘Machine Gun’ McGurn to eliminate Moran, Capone’s chief criminal enemy. Territorial tensions between “Bugs” Moran and Al Capone about who would own the Chicago bootlegging business and make the most money from it also led Capone to accept Jack’s plan for the killings.

Recognize the Armenian Genocide

After writing my posts about the Armenian Genocide and Armenian Genocide Denial = Jail Time, one of my friends sent me a link to this video about Recognizing the Armenian Genocide. Up to 1982, many former Presidents have made statements saying that the Armenian Genocide happened, but then the US government was afraid that the Turkish Government would get upset over the use of the word “Genocide”.
