Yeh I saw that.

I hope they don't think we wouldn't be welcoming.

It's a free world and we don't bite. It's just banter. :lol:

But they should be warned. White socks and sandals won't be tolerated. just ask Miltiades and Robin Hood! :lol:

I'm actually hoping more forumers from Cyprus Expat sign up just to keep Robin Hood busy because boy oh boy, I have never seen any forumer as loathed as Robin Hood is! :lol:

Oh dear .....now you have hurt my feelings. :cry: :roll:

You don't seem to have many friends on here either, by all accounts, but then most of us just take pity on you, you can't help being a dork .... in fact I don't think you have ANY friends on here, but you have an 'entertainment' value , your posts are always good for a laugh ..... but don't give up the day job! ! :lol:

Maybe we should get Milti to run a popularity poll ...... like they do to achieve a popularity rating with ........Obama vs Putin ? :roll: :lol: :lol:

I have friends here, but I can't help it when I am the voice of reason and just won't embark on a good old Yanky bash for the hell of it.

Cyprus has suffered a lot because of stupid mistakes throughout history. it suffered a hell of a lot and it still suffers but you couldn't care less could you? Greece is a NATO member.

Oh and all your "friends" don't like pootin. Must be his mongoloid features.

Yes that is why you came to cyprus Forum. because here you found people which agree with your views as out of step that they are with international sentiment.

It would be like me joining Cyprus Expat because most forumers there would agree with my views and not yours. :lol: :lol:

But I am not a weak person or need to be surrounded with like-minded individuals because I hold my own.

You have friends? Like all those that agreed with your views ? I forget how many votes you got ...... but zero springs to mind! Pot-kettle-black ......... POOTIN ????

I don’t bash the Yanks, I’ve worked with them and they are fine but I don’t like the pigs swill they have for a government ..... but then I am not alone there as a large majority of Americans feel the same as I do and want a change .... from the undemocratic ‘Deep State’ that you admire so much ! :roll:

Cyprus has suffered a lot because of stupid mistakes throughout history. it suffered a hell of a lot and it still suffers but you couldn't care less could you? Greece is a NATO member.


It was Cypriots that made the mistakes ........ I wasn’t involved. The difference between you and me is that, I CHOSE TO LIVE HERE .it is my home and I expect I will die here .... but you abandoned Cyprus and went abroad. So having lived here for getting on for 25 years, I have more justification for regarding myself ‘Cypriot’ than you have. :wink:

Oh and all your "friends" don't like pootin. Must be his mongoloid features.


Maybe we should have our own poll on who members of the Forum regard in higher esteem ..... Obama or Putin?

Yes that is why you came to cyprus Forum. because here you found people which agree with your views as out of step that they are with international sentiment.


I came to Cyprus Forum ........ because I can’t deal very well with sarcasm. You are not smart enough to use sarcasm .... it takes a sharp mind. But several have left that forum for much the same or similar reasons since, so I was not alone in my sentiments. BTW: You also reference the wrong Forum.

It would be like me joining Cyprus Expat because most forumers there would agree with my views and not yours.

Well .... they didn’t seem to agree with your views on here did they? But I don’t really go for ‘personal’ polls, which is why I didn’t vote.

But I am not a weak person or need to be surrounded with like-minded individuals because I hold my own.


No, I agree, you don’t appear to be weak. Arrogant, misguided, self opinionated, delusional, with an extremist attitude and ever so slightly biased, maybe ...... but weak, no, that I will give you credit for. But then I am not a weak person either. 8)

BTW: Stop holding your 'own' .... it makes you go blind apparently! Or just hold it a little bit and wear glasses :roll: :D :D

Oh here we go again.

perhaps you should ask the forum which side seems to favour the creation of a poll as vindication for their views. It's not me craving the attention or the acceptance.

I got a better idea. Why don't you start the poll on another forum and see the result of that. fact of the matter is, most Cypriots of this generation hate America. Fortunately, most younger Cypriots actually like America, and the bonds between cyprus and America are ever increasing. Thousands of Cypriots have American degrees and the Cypriot Diaspora in the USA is extremely biggish and powerful. There are more bonds with America than there is with Russia.

When Obama visited Greece there was a demonstration because of the 115 students that were crushed by Greek Tanks at the polytechnic University. Fact of the matter is, most countries actually move on.

In the 1950s and 1960s, the USA, UK and Australia were conducting Atomic Tests in the Australian Outback and exposed Australian, British and American Service personnel (mostly out of ignorance) to radiation. All of them died of cancer and left loved ones behind.

We all move on but we don't forget.

That is what friendship is all about, and the USA is a friend of cyprus and a much more reliable friend than Russia can ever be. In addition to this, cyprus has an alliance with Greece and Israel. Greece is also a NATO member.

fact is, many issues would have been solved if Cyprus was a member of NATO.

So you go right ahead and start yet another personal poll. just don't expect me to participate and the last one you held most forumers refused to participate, which actually means they don't agree with your poll. And good on them for that.

If you want to be fair, you would conduct such a poll on Cyprus Expat.

it's also extremely irresponsible of you to be spreading anti American propaganda on a cypriot forum. cyprus is a country that can't afford to have any animosity whatsoever with the USA.

It is EXTREMELY important for Cyprus to expand its diplomatic, cultural, institutional and military relations with the USA and its allies. It is only they who have the influence and power to help the Cypriot government out of its dilemma.

Russia was egging cyprus on and before you knew it, Cyprus was attacked by a poisonous Funnel Webb spider that just came out of the ground and injected its venom.

Cyprus isn't a geopolitical power. it's a country similar to Malta if you like. Tiny as all hell and in need of strong friends for its own security and survival.

For the first time in its history, cyprus is in as far as the USA is concerned. the USA trusts cyprus, likes Cyprus and will work with Cyprus. Cyprus has surprised everyone with its friendship with Israel. The Americans are only too happy to support Cyprus to enter the PfP and then NATO after a comprehensive settlement, and that would be the wisest thing for Cyprus to do especially in its bad neighborhood. I don't want to see cyprus invaded or attacked again.

fact of the matter is this. Russia is not an option for cyprus because NATO/USA will not allow very deep friendships between cyprus and Russia because cyprus is in its backyard. It's close to israel and they have more than enough to deal with in the Middle east.

The USA trusts Cyprus, likes Cyprus and will work with Cyprus. The problem is the "like" bit. Cyprus is not the "whore of the Mediterranean". Let the West have NATO, we are central, and that is why we are secure without selling ourselves to the highest military bidder!

And no matter what you think of Israel, it has become a real friend of cyprus not just in rhetoric.

Every year, the Israelis participate in joint exercises with cyprus and Greece. Israel offers all its arms to the cyprus national Guard and has even proposed to sell Israeli made Corvettes.

It helps cyprus when there are bush-fires (along with Greece) and Cyprus has helped Israel just recently.

These are very important geopolitical developments for cyprus which the USA has observed and noted no doubt.

On the other hand, Turkey continues to disappoint and there is an increasing mistrust about their agenda. It could also be that turkey is not completely in line with Coalition interests in Syria.

Cyprus is best advised to sit tight for a little while and it should invite the USA to Geneva as well, because they could very well be very surprised.

It is completely irresponsible to not be testing the waters.

No one is a whore.

Don't be so daft. There are geopolitical Countries and we are in the Middle east. we need security. To not have this security is extremely poor and does not protect the interests of the Cypriot people because potentially it will get steamrolled by both Russia and USA just like before.

Cyprus has its friends in the region now - Israel, Greece and France. Ergo USA!

If you want to be friends with Greece, France and Israel, then you are a US ally by default.

let's stop all the inconsistent rhetoric from the 50s and 60s thank you very much.

Cyprus is not Cuba. It has an axis with Israel and Greece.

I've never started or participated in a poll on this Forum or, as far as I can remember, any other forum and I have never been a member of Cyprus Ex-Pat Forum. So, like most of your posts you manage to get the facts wrong .... yet again! :roll:
