failed Turkish accession-whats the worst that could happen?

Turkey is begining to see the mammoth task in front of her in respect of EU accession.

Among other problems ,Turkey's instransigence on its illegal occupation of Cyprus appears to be its main stumbling block to accession.

If Turkey is ultimately unsuccessful in its EU ambitions what is the worst that could happen?

Would a bizonal bisexual federation be relegated to history?

Would the de facto status quo remain indefinitely?

Will turkey be weakened to the point of oblivion?

I believe you have asked a serious question Agios,and you deserve a serious answer.This is my personal opinion:both Turkey and the powers that be in the EU (England,France,Germany,Austria etc) know that Turkey's accession talks is a ploy. Turkey's role has already been decided by the Anglo American partnership. She will play "the honest broker" role between EU and the Chinese and the Russians,especially serving as a conduit for energy supply.She will also serve as mediator between the West and the islamic world,especially with Iran and the Turkic republics of the former Soviet Union.
I believe Turkey will be stronger and more influential as a power player outside the EU.And the present government are beginning to realise it.
This is not good news for those of us who want a peaceful,fair and just solution to the Cypro,I am afraid.Unless we find ways to solve the problem amongst ourselves as Cypriots,the status quo will became the final solution. The TC culture will be extinct. So will the GC culture as you will be swamped by the Europeans after the Partition becomes official. :cry: :cry: :cry:

All the more reason for Papadopulos to start negotiations. He is dragging his feet and giving false hope to his people. When the shit hits the fan he will be lynched!

if turkeys accession talks fail, the worsed case scenario is the most likely case scenario , and that is : forget any solution to the cyppro.
thats my opinion

I am glad you at least agree with me birkibrisli. I posted a similar response to Lysi's post and for some reason Lana deleted it, her reason being that it was insulting. God what has happened to common sense?

Do you prefer: (a) No solution and Turkey out of EU or (b) bad solution and Turkey in EU? ;)
