...indeed, who would believe, that the Generals, so well connected in the Cold War world, could make this mistake, assuming that Turkey would not invade.

Dividing the island is an American idea (see: Acheson), as much as it was the original desire of the "Turks", against the "Greeks" on this island.

As NATO allies, (and anti-Communist) it is more easily believed that it, the coup, was part of a plan.

Cristopher Hitchens wrote a really good book about Cyprus where you can be acquainted with some realities which you seek. There is also one of his documentaries in Cyprus that you can watch on Youtube.

Seems like Erwinski went missing. Maybe he went to the occupied areas to meet some TCs and they kidnapped him? :shock:

Erwinski would do well to familiarise himself with some of the goings on behind the scenes in 1974.

should not have one-third of Cyprus

I'm Erwin, a student of journalism from the Netherslands, based in Ghent, Belgium. I'm now on Cyprus to write my thesis on the Cyprus Problem and the ongoing unification talks. I've been reading some topics here and I see there's a lot of different viewponts, opinions and perspectives around on this forum, which makes it a very interesting pool of people to me.

Therefore I'm interested in people from both sides that have (or know someone who has) any (personal) stories on this matter. Either by being or having been in the army (I would be very interested in personal stories from '74 too), by being into an intercultural relationship or marriage between a Greek- and Turkish-Cypriot, by being part of on (un)official organisation that is somehow involved with this issue, by being affected by the property issie, by having a strong and clear opinion on the matter (nationalistic views from both sides are very welcome too, for example) of by being in any other way involved.

I'm very interested in speaking with you, preferrably in person. Any reaction or tip is welcome tho, either in this topic, by PM, by e-mail ( erwiveen@student.arteveldehs.be ) or by phone: +357-99-027236

Thanks in advance :)

Erwin


You seem clueless about the Cyprus problem, since your questions are usually asked by a novice to the situation


That's exactly right.

Your point being...?

So how does it feel to be the first to come back in one piece? :)

wassss the maddder gr you tring to pluck up the courage to go north of the border too.

here is anohter link for the young man with thirst for knowledge. you can do a lot worse than read this man's articles and books. you will not need to read anybody else's books for balance, they are already balanced and spot on exactly as to what really happened in cyprus and who were the players and who were the dumbos in this here little local difficulty of ours. of course there is no substitute for meeting the real beast, the descendants of those afformentioned dumbos frequent this here website but refuse to drink the water. do you know the saying about donkey and the water? well here is the link anyhow

now here is a plan still being though of a good plan even today by some bastards.

one morning, Ioannides visited him in the Archbishopric, accompanied by Nicos Sampson, to submit to him a plan which would settle the Cyprus issue once and for all. "He bowed before me, kissed my hand with great respect and said: 'Your Beatitude, here is the plan. We will suddenly attack the Turkish Cypriots all over the island. We will get them out of the way once and for all, and we will be rid of the issue'.
