Megalomania - the symptom of being coveted...

Postby tsukoui » Sat Jul 21, 2012 8:50 pm

With everyone fighting over the most strategic island in the Middle East, possibly the most strategic region in the world today is it any wonder that Cypriots are megalomaniacs... it is just the flip side of being coveted...

The question is, with so much power, why don't they do something useful instead of lining their pockets?

Please don't do their dirty work.

This is precisely how they scapegoated Greece to bring her down with high interest rates etc.

It was predictable that Greece being spent, they would move on to bringing down Cyprus with the same arguments.

Which is why we should have opposed harder, those anti-Greek posters. They paved the way for these attacks on Cyprus.

Please think with your heart.

I have difficulty recalling an incident other than the 50s Suez Canal debacle, when Cyprus served as a “strategic” point. If Britain was to calculate the money she’s wasted by being on Cyprus all these decades she could’ve purchased Egypt 100 times over!

Oracle... when to yield and when to go forward... that is the question... Rumi was called Rumi as a complement... can we not return it?

NO wonder that Cypriots are Megalomaniacs.

Perhaps it is a way of proving ones worth based on the material possessions they have ... Based on the EGO to satisfy itself, of course something that the EGO does not do is be grateful for there will always more to have and someone who has more than thy.

It is sad but true that Cuba saw a rise in prostitution after the collapse of the Soviet Union... tourism has damaged both our islands, but financial needs must... I have heard that Cba is thinking of allowing Western pensioners to retire there by buying homes... hopefully they will be less selfish...
