Below is a fragment from the book «The Genocide of the Armenians. Crimes Against Humanity and Civilization» published by «Facing History and Ourselves National Foundation, Inc.» in 2004 in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Reports of the massacres horrified members of the United States
Congress. In December 1895, Senator Wilkinson Call, a Democrat from
Florida, proposed a resolution calling for the creation of an independent
Armenian state protected by the “civilized” nations of the world.
Although the resolution proved too radical for the Committee on
Foreign Affairs, the Committee did support the resolution of Senator
Shelby Collum of Illinois condemning the massacres. Senator Collum
urged President Grover Cleveland to take a stand:
«Destruction and rapine have been and now are the orders obeyed in the
beautiful valleys and on the rugged hills of Armenia. There has been no
war, no conflict between the two contending powers, but a merciless, pitiless tornado of bloody ruin. . . .
Has it come to this, that in the last days of the nineteenth century
humanity itself is placed on trial?» 
Although Congress passed Collum’s resolution, President Cleveland refused to support the measure, fearing the military and economic repercussions such an action would have on relations between the Ottoman Empire and the United States. Without U.S. support, the European and Russian governments continued to pressure the sultan to implement the reforms promised in The Treaty of Berlin. While diplomats talked, massacres of Ottoman Armenians continued intermittently until January 1896.
