With so many TC's and Brit's participating on the forum would it not make sense to appoint a moderator from each race?

It seems that the greek cypriot point of view is being censored by some of these so called moderators.

Universal Soldier



Within the burning village an orphan child just sits
Crying for a mother, last night blown to bits
The mother rags and shredded meat, silently stares back
Her now dead eyes unseeing, stare at her house burned black

Her husband in the rubble beneath a caved in wall
Blasted by the screaming shells that from the sky did fall
A cratered village silent no sound of moving feet
Littered with the bodies whose hearts have ceased to beat

Advancing through the village a single soldier creeps
Rifle at the ready around each corner peeps
On his back a radio gives one more command
Orders from an officer, to far away to understand

Kill them all and clean the village, do it now I say
Yes sir says the soldier, all your orders i obey
Advancing now the soldier, looking left and right
Trying not to break the silence, Grips his rifle tight,

A noise he hears from up ahead, the crouching soldier run
The darkness of a Cyprus night, retreating, from the sun
On a bed of broken bricks a bleeding child now lies
Whimpering and staring with tear stained cheeks. and eyes

Reporting on the radio that a child remains, not dead
The crackling radio voice came back, with the order the soldier dread
Kill them all and clean the village, do it now i say
Make a choice, be Greek or Turk, or traitor end the day

The child now sees the soldier, and on baby legs does crawl
Towards the soldiers booted feet, the soldier standing tall
Kill them all and clean the village the, the radio voice did shout
The child climbed on the soldier’s leg and with baby hand reached out

The soldier coked his rifle a new bullet now he breached
At his leg a tottering child, a baby hand did reach
In baby distressed language neither English Greek or Turk
The universal baby cries, to end the fear and hurt

The soldier shoots the bullet, now almost in a dream
In the smouldering shattered village, a child lets out a scream
The echo of the final shot returns from hills on by
The soldier now stands naked, clenched fists raging at the sky

Im neither Greek nor Turkish, and a Cypriot man ill be
An ending to this murder, I will work my life to see.
He kicked the new shot radio across the cratered sand
With bloodshot eyes he looked around, the ruined village land

And from his naked Cypriot Arms came tiny fingertips
Reaching up towards the Cypriots gently smiling lips
The tear and bloodstained baby safe, now smiles in new warm bliss
A new day dawns, a new Cyprus born,
with a Cypriot tender kiss






True freedom has a hidden price,
for you to have it . everyone must have it. otherwise its just a dream you hold
For if you deny it to others, someday you will wake and realise that the dream has gone with the waking

Moderators are people that care for the forum and are in agreement with the ways that this forum should be moderated.

Currently the forum doesn't need more moderators. When an additional moderator will be required the criteria of choosing him will not include his race but rather her abilities and commitment to our forum.

It seems that the greek cypriot point of view is being censored by some of these so called moderators.
This is cyprus forum not the i love britain and turkey forum.

No point of view is censored as long as it is expressed within the limits of our rules and policies and has no intention of harming the forum.

bakala, please keep your poems in the relevant sections.

Thanks

i thought this was a forum for solving problems
Surely
history shows us the folly of conflict and confrontation, i often see on these boards, debates gone wild and two reasonable guys inflamed to acts of written verbal violence, i try to be a moderating influence when possible and while respecting others views, labor the point all the time for tolerance
perhaps a if i were to swing one way or the other taking sides and stoking the fire you would be happier

When young men and women meet in debate they often refer to the horrors of the past, a past they never experienced
No man who has ever held a gun with real life human target EVER forgets the first time, and contrary to normal belief the second time isint easier

As far as i am concerned we need more Anti conflict talk and less flag waving and further more my preference for writing in rhyme is because maybe people will remeber what i say tomorrow and not forget today

By the way Admin i will stay on this Board untill i am voted off by the good guys ( ever heard of free speech )
if i wasent a moderate person by nature i would proably say something like this

"personaly i think your a jumped up little shit and this is your only way of flexing your puny little power "
but i am a moderate so i wont say it :)
