“Greeks” or “Turks”, Greeks or Turks, “Cypriots” or Cypriots?

Should we just all make “butter” or butter?

...i recall my cousin much younger than me discussing those fateful days. It is no irony that her brother and i knew the difference, she had been taught that the Flag of Greece was "our" Flag; he was murdered as was his father, disappeared because they stayed. Cypriot ,"Greek", Greek, Turkish, "Turk", there is a difference; my family did not die as one of "Them", they died because of "Them".

...i do not support the notion "They" would have the rest of us believe, that only they exist, that Cypriots do not exist; you?

Why? Because you tried reading something that had more shades than Black/White?

Is that what it is? Different shades?

I tell you what, if you understood the question, explain it to me in black and white and I will give a straight answer.

I can’t answer what I can’t understand.

If you didn't understand simply avoid lame comments. May I remind you of this invocation of opponents sympathy Jan 18, 2018:

Paphitis wrote:I am dealing with Death right now as I have a loss in the family. So I will not be responding to anymore stupid posts. Got a lot on the plate.
And I know that once I stop, I probably won't be back for a very long time. So see you all in 2019 or 2020 or whenever.


Since then you produced 210 posts, topping it with this rant. That is utterly far from the respect you expect others to show you

I said I had a headache. I was asked a direct question and didn't wish to have a go at the poster's English.

I quite like him, and he does try, so in order to not cause offense at the other end, I avoided the question with 'I got a headache'. That's just the way I roll. I wasn't sure what was being asked but really didn't want to say that so I evaded the question. Sometimes, you got to think about the person at the other end. That is what I generally do, except of course when it comes to ...

I also believe that you don't know what was being asked. Therefore, tell me, what is the problem? I am more than willing to answer as I said before, and answer respectfully, but what was the question?

I still got a lot on my plate, but I posts in bursts and the Death was nearly 2 months ago. Thank you for your kind condolences btw. I just can't afford to get bogged down. I got to keep moving.

You sound like a marvelous human being.

A few years back, General wewe Malakas posted his own tombstone!! He is all over the place and fucking stupid at that. Nobody on this forum, give or take one or two has much respect for his views. The classic one is the latest in that Cyprus can take Turkey on , on its own, and defeat .
What a fucking Plonker.

My tombstone?

I don't recall that. I do recall saying I was leaving but I don't recall a tombstone.

But anyway old fart, I come and go. I post today, and might not post for 3 months and then post again. My last big break was 11 months or something like that. This forum doesn't run my life. I've had breaks totaling some nearly 3 years and a ban which was for over a year. My last break was 7 weeks.

I'm not worried about people respecting my views old fart. But let me give you some advice. Most people think you are a MALAKAS! A Malakas with no respect for their country or the CNG. You are the biggest idiot going round. And furthermore, it is you that is all over the place. My views remain steadfast and the same. I have never moved around from supporting our Western Ideals, you on the other hand have gone from the West to Russia, Iran and Hezbollah of all things.

use your brains. I will die with my views. And I don't think with my dick old fart on blue pills.

You are very senile. You know nothing about Syria. You were not even aware that it was the Coalition that defeated ISIL. You think it was Syria and Russia when they hardly exchanged a few bullets between them with Palmyra being the exception to the rule.

You talk with a forked tongue, but sadly, every time you open your mouth, you actually, make a big fool of yourself and have no idea what you are on about.

If it wasn't for the Coalition, you would still be having nightmares about ISIL and beards. Yes the Coalition beat them comprehensively, but they are not gone forever because ISIL is an ideology and you can't beat an ideology but you wouldn't know anything as complex as that. Coalition isn't deluded thinking it can eradicate the problem globally. We know we will meet them again. But it can eradicate them from Iraq and Syria and that's what it did. No they are still around but on the run. Ashadow of what they once were, but they will regather themselves.

Coalition is the only sane thing going in this world. We are the EU you love so much, and NATO, and Australia/NZ and so many others. We are not Russia, Iran or Hezbollah. So say thank you!
