  • 1960: Turks and Greeks established "Republic of Cyprus"
  • 1963: Greeks expelled Turks from administration.
  • 1963: Greek Cypriots started applying ethnic cleansing to Turkish Cypriots.
  • 1963: United Nations Peace Force (UNFICYP) came island to protect Turkish Cypriots.

  • 1964: UN Secretary-General Report (10 September 1964, S/5950): 103 Turkish Cypriot villages in South Cyprus were destroyed by Greek Cypriots.

  • 1963-1974: UNFICYP did NOT succeed to protect Turkish Cypriots in a very small island in 11 years. GREEK CYPRUS destroyed all of the 103 TURKISH CYPRUS villages from 1963 to 1974 in South Cyprus. Greekofication of South Cyprus was completed.

  • 1974: Greeks tried to annex the Cyprus island to Greece.
  • 1974: Turkey gave lesson to all who needed.

  • Maraş is in TURKISH CYPRUS, and will be populated by Turkish Cypriots in 2010. Turkofication of North Cyprus will be completed soon as well.

  • Czekoslovakia = Czek + Slovakia

  • Serbia-Montenegro = Serbia + Montenegro (even the same race and religion!)

  • Cyprus = Turkish Cyprus + Greek Cyprus (Since 1963!)

No wars are really about colour, creed etc, they are about power and greed. Power tends to corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely (John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton (1834–1902) I fear until humans learn to accept and live in peace with no one particular person leading, but a council representing fairly, every member of society, getting rid of all weapons of mass destruction and...get this....LISTENING to the ordinary people of the world who just want to get on with their lives peacefully, the world will always be at war. That's what I want to do, why doesn't everybody?
