Thank God for the handful of honest, intelligent people like Noam preserving our sanity in today’s world littered with criminals and their blood-thirsty fans.

He came to Cyprus with carter and tutu and said that the Cyprus problem was that of ethnic strife . We all know that the Cyprus problem is an effect of the Cold War. Could he be another instrument of the one world government?

Did that come out your rear end?

“It was also necessary to overlook Turkey's abysmal human rights record, not to speak of its conquest and virtual annexation of northern Cyprus, with thousands of casualties and hundreds of thousands of refugees after an orgy of killing, torture, rape and pillage to extirpate the last remnants of Greek culture back to classical antiquity. Nonetheless, few winced when George Bush praised Turkey for serving "as a protector of peace" as it joined those who "stand up for civilized values around the world," opposing Saddam Hussein.”

Noam Chomsky, February 1991

This definitely came out your rear end! :lol:

So the 1571 Ottoman invasion/occupation was an effect of the Cold War?

The 1878 British takeover of Cyprus from the Ottomans was an effect of the Cold War?

The catalytic 1931 “octovriana” riots were an effect of the Cold War?

Get an adult to do the reading/interpreting for you and you'll be right.

It's lucky we are democratic people and allow Chumsky to express his views. In some places they would have chopped his head off!

We have Just Cause to kill them in order to protect Chumski's freedoms so that you can admire his intelligence! :lol:

That's in 1991, actually I saw a video in 1975 I'll find it for you where he mentions what you wrote, but in 2010 he said ethnic strife.

He has many inconsistencies and an agenda, and his views are not favourable to Cyprus either much like the "terrorist" West and Israel.

But I don't think Get Real cares. He will just jump on the bandwagon! :lol:

He does subscribe to the "ethnic" argument in Cyprus and quite possible supports the "piss operation" as a result.

...interestingly, Evan Soloman, the journalist doing the interview (if i'm not mistaken), was fired today for using his connections as a newsgatherer; key anchor for the CBC in Canada, he was making money selling their art (those he interviewed) for a commission, in essence to each other.
