There are few worth debating anything with on here, it has become very TC vs GC orientated. I suppose that is inevitable for a Cyprus forum! There are only a few threads that interest me any way! :roll:

I think the first response to the OP pretty much set the tone. :roll:


Read this stupid. :roll:

General Clark returned to meet with the unidentified general some 6 weeks later, by which point the Bush administration had already started bombing Afghanistan. Gen. Clark asked: "So, we still going to war with Iraq?" The unidentified general informed Clark that it was "worse than that," before reaching for his desk and presenting Clark with a memo that he had received from the office of Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld. The unidentified general informed Clark that in his hands he had a memo describing how the US was going to take down seven countries in five years, "starting with Iraq and then Syria, Lebanon, Lybia, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off Iran."

Britain is to send a nuclear-powered attack submarine to the Gulf after Iran seized a British-flagged oil tanker

Hey, I'm not the one who posts this stuff. In your case mostly either articles without comment or one liners. Those often about as sensible as your latest contribution to the Johnson thread "Wouldn’t it have been better to voted to leave the “Anglo Zionist Empire”. :?

It's been nearly 4 years now since your first "The end is nigh!" post, followed on many occasions by similar apocalyptic rubbish. We've been waiting for your regular Russian warnings of an imminent "false flag" chemical attack by the Syrian rebels (as usual on their own people :roll: ) that hasn't happened I don't know how many times.

And, who's the stupid one? :eyecrazy: :wink:

They will impound the ship and if found to have breached the Law, after due process, the owners will be fined and the ships released..... when the fine is paid. The British did the same to the Iranian ship off Gibraltar because it breached EU (read US) sanctions.

Whilst the UK Foreign Secretary finds Iran's actions to be "Totally unacceptable .... and worthy of robust action", it seems its OK for the UK to enforce 'regulations' by impounding commercial shipping ............ but not Iran. Double standards? :wink:


I’ve been Brexitting. You know - familiar territory. Said the groundhog. :roll:

Anyway, the Grace 1, Iranian tanker was boarded in Gibraltar’s territorial waters, in accordance with their laws and internationally recognised sanctions against Syria. Including by one of your personal favourite bodies - the UN. You do remember the UN - and that “law” thing, both of which you’re so fond of quoting?

The British flagged but Swedish owned and mostly Indian crewed Stena Impero (ie, about as “British” as your twincab) was illegally boarded in Omani waters, then directed at gunpoint into Iranian territory. Initially the story was that it was boarded there but later - when even the Iranians realised that it was a patently obvious load of bollocks - it changed and became their reaction to a supposed collision with one of their fishing boats.

Due process of law bullshit aside, we both know that the ship was captured in a much publicized, Iranian threatened revenge attack for Gibraltar and that it won’t be released, other than as a quid pro quo. That is, any time soon.

As always, you rush to defend absolutely anything that comes out of Moscow, Tehran, Beijing, Damascus, Pyongyang. Well, anywhere there’s a resident dictator really. That, apparently as a knee-jerk reaction without a seconds thought. Blindly repeating the (whatever) local party line, whilst us "can't think outside the box" types look on in disbelief. :shock: How you manage to reconcile that process is one of life’s enduring mysteries. :?
