It's time to wake up.

The foreign army is deep within our territory, holding 40% of our land. Every day thousands of Cypriots wake up to this flag for 41 years now.

We seem to be used to it. It doesn't bother us anymore. We just accept the image of the Cyprus problem as it is served to us by the softboiled politicians we are called to vote for. Even the Cypriot Orthodox Church, who claim to have championed the Greek cause for centuries, are satisfied with sitting in their expensive German cars and charging their flock ridiculous prices for marriages, funerals and confessions.

It's ridiculous how we left these matters to be dealt and managed only by our politicians while we choose to profusely masturbate to their every word. As a nation, enveloped in the teeth of the Turkish Skatogaros, we have left the love of our island country to be administered by sold-out politicians, fat-ass clergy and nationalistic hooligans who think that breaking the windscreens of Turkish Cypriot cars is going to solve something.

Noone has stepped up to give us a map of what we need to do, and even though it should have been dead-obvious what we need to do, the disfunction in this society is pushing lots of young people to passively "and stupidly" give up on their country and go clubbing with the money of daddy and mommy.

A Cypriot hoping that Russia is going to bomb Turkey and force them out of Cyprus is like an unexperienced fat virgin who hopes to one day trip, and accidentally fall right into a beautiful woman's vagina. This is not going to happen, and that guy will always be miserable.

Cyprus needs to hit the gym. Cyprus needs to start learning how to attract other countries. Anastasiades should not be our only representative, we should all be, with our actions.

Now, you say how? Well, let's start with something simple.

Let's do an experiment. I want you to watch two videos, and honestly answer to yourself the question: If I were a tourist, which country would I want to visit?

I. This is one of three timelapse videos by the Turkish Tourist Authority. I invite you to go through all these videos and see the variety they offer. They even have a program where two hip effeminate American guys tell you where to visit and what you can do there. I also invite you to watch the Black Sea Timelapse, so you can see perfect views of all the Greek Orthodox churches there.



II. Apart from a catchy title, all we have to offer are this stupid video with different captions in different stupid languages. There is one timelapse which is kind of nice, but kind of patchy and only done once in 2009. Cmon. How many thousands of our Euros did we spend on this shitty video. The Turks didn't need to translate their timelapses because they realised they didn't need any captions in them. They speak for themselves.



Where are our creative people to fix this? They are probably in London or Hamburg or something.

So if we bring more tourists the Cyprus problem will be solved? I fail to see the connection.

We have more tourists per capita in Cyprus than they have in Turkey. Do you expect Cyprus to be better in absolute numbers? Turkey is a much bigger country so it has a lot more places of interest, a lot more hotels, a lot more people to work on those videos etc. You can't compare a country of less than a million with a country of 80 millions in absolute terms.

Regarding the Cyprus problem our mistake was following the BBF path which can lead to nothing good for us. We are so deep in it now that is very difficult to come out one day and declare that we simply changed our mind. We need to figure out a way to change direction gradually and our aim should be to maintain the status quo unless the Turkish side is willing to settle for a 20%-80% two state arrangement.

Money brings opportunity and everything that makes our country richer and takes away from the enemy is worth it. Now, we are lucky because ISIS scared everyone away from North African and Middle Easten Tourist destinations and Turkey shot themselves in the foot with the Russians... but we can't rely on the mistakes of others forever.

Next year is supposed to be a new record for tourism. Lets hope that we will not have any incidents that will turn the expected positive record to a negative one.

We have also seen how a single incident can screw up the tourism of a whole country! The Turks shot themselves on the foot but I feel a bit sorry for the Egyptians.

I have a number of British friends who have noticed/mentioned the increase in aggressive advertising by Turkey. The only hope is that they only fool the lowest classes, the uneducated, who (in this case) are thankfully probably too poor to travel - if only the loan sharks will stop giving them money to misspend in places like Turkey.

HM Government's Advice:

Terrorism - Turkey

There is a high threat from terrorism.

There were 2 explosions near the main Ankara train station in the Ulus area on 10 October. At least 100 people were killed and more than 180 injured.

On 19 August there was an incident involving gunfire and a sound grenade in an attack on Turkish national police guards stationed outside Dolmabahçe Palace in Istanbul. On 10 August, 2 people opened fire outside the US Consulate-General in Istanbul. On 27 July there were reports of possible threats to public transport in Istanbul, in particular the metro stations at Yenikapi, Taksim, Osmanbey and Haciosman and stops on the Metrobus line.

Be vigilant, monitor media reports and keep up to date with this travel advice.

The terrorist group DHKP-C (Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party Front) has launched a series of attacks in Istanbul in 2015 targeting the Turkish police and judiciary. On 5 June, two people were killed and many injured by an explosion at an HDP rally in Diyarbakir. On 9 June, 4 people were killed in an attack in Diyarbakir. You should exercise caution.

You are the one who should shut up. Turkey would hate such arrangement and it is not something they promote.

Are you Turkey's spokesperson, then?
