A History of Mankind in 1250 Words or Less

Postby insan » Wed Nov 18, 2015 10:54 pm

"There is one consistent theme in the history of mankind: Domination and control of the weak and vulnerable by the powerful and cunning. The folks who have pulled all the strings and made all the decisions since the first humanoids stood upright and discovered their thumbs seem to possess a gene which triggers an obsessive compulsive urge to collect and hoard an obscene amount of resources. This at the expense of all the lesser people and to the detriment and very health of what was once a pretty, blue planet."

Thanks, pretty much describes Turkey and its landgrabs.

I rather fancy that there is much truth in the re-structuring of your introduction to the link you have posted.

Doubtless there are those who will not agree with my adjustments but, in all candour, I think it quite relevant when associated with the awful turmoil in the entire Middle Eastern region these past few decades, do you not agree ?. 8)

Why don't you take your anti-Israeli views to a forum that cares? Here, we are afflicted by Turkey and its TC stooges. That's quite enough for Cyprus, thank you.

My apologies, it's just that I thought the Israeli's were very much involved in the underhandedness which led up to the invasion of the island of Cyprus.

Their "Cunning" will of course have ensured that [as usual] their influence would remain obscure but the bigger picture is emerging and it is now becoming quite obvious that the very same influence is spreading far and wide in the Middle Eastern regions. 8)

I think Turkey is quite capable of invading Cyprus without anyone's help so kindly stop trying to excuse them.

I would certainly NOT excuse Turkey and it's actions in the invasion of Cyprus, nor would I be prepared to condemn every Turk because of it since THEY [as with every one of us] are obliged to conform with whatever evils our governments impose upon us [and others].

I am far more concerned with the "Behind the Scenes" scenarios which lead to ALL the upheavals in and around the Middle East and in THAT sphere of events, I am convinced that the foundation of the state of Israel ["The Terror State"] is at the root of ALL the evils we have witnessed since such foundation.

One could say that the silence is deafening whenever the Israeli government act in discord with EVERY other nation, I wonder why ?. 8)

I don't believe that's true, from my experience, anyway.

It's the pro-Turkish brigade that manages to keep the lid on the atrocities carried out by Turkey that is the most active.

Where's the noise to remove the Turkish occupation forces from Cyprus?

Really? You believe Israel was involved in the underhandedness of the Cyprus Invasion do you?

Well there is absolutely no evidence of that, and they had nothing to gain from it neither. Sure, relations then were not that positive, probably because of Cyprus' Foreign Policies, but that's pretty much it.

But today, Israel seems to be our best ally. We have defence cooperation treaties with them and even joint military exercises. Who would have guessed this tun of events a few years ago?

So what is your issue with them when they seem to be our friends today?

His issue is that he embraces antisemitism, just like you embrace eugenics.
