If Cypriots and Ukrainians are to be compared, it is that both have survived as a People for millennia, despite what has happened around them over all this time, a crossroad.

If Turkey and Russia are to be compared under their individual circumstances, is the threat that Cyprus and the Ukraine represent in an alliance (militarily speaking) with their adversaries.

Cyprus and the Ukraine may serve a higher purpose if they represent to the interlocutors, States (representing its Citizens as Individuals, not just as Persons) which as 'honest brokers' facilitate exchange.


Actually no. NATO has come out as the winner and it holds the moral ground.

As an organisation, they have done a lot for peace and stability. NATO DOES NOT have a policy to wage war against Russia, or invade it or occupy it. Such a policy would be extremely foolish and eventually unleash a nuclear Holocaust where all of Europes and North America’s cities would be levelled to the ground.

NATO is only defensive and only serves as a deterrent in Europe by discouraging the events of the past - like in WW2 where a country can unilaterally invade and take over another. For example, Germany’s invasion of Poland which sparked the worst war in human history.

NATO even vetoed Ukraine’s membership application. Therefore, as an organisation, they have no interest at all in provoking Russia. In addition, NATO and the west, and EU have been trying to do what the can to apply pressure on Russia to avert an invasion against Ukraine.

And NATO has no interest whatsoever to deploy nuclear weapons on Ukrainian territory. That would be a clear provocative act.

When Ukraine gained independence, they inherited one of the largest nuclear arsenals on the planet. Ukraine surrendered them to Russia as a gesture of peace and coexistence with Russia and so Russia did not feel threatened. In return, Russia agreed to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty, which it now doesn’t.

Without NATO, Europe is a basket case because their are too many countries in a confined geographical area and that’s how wars start. NATO is just a deterrent. It tells any larger country with expansionist desires (like Russia) to net get too smart or do anything because of Article 5. An attack against any of its members is an attack on all.

According to men the world is burning, while women are busy playing with their vaginas online in exchange for “tokens”! :lol:

It’s all relative you see… women don’t see a problem with borders but rather when you can’t afford certain things that lead up to a certain lifestyle!

Maybe we should be more like them... :?

Forgot to mention… the one on the left is an Arab girl living in London while the one on the right is a Ukrainian living… I think in the Ukraine.

Neither one gives a shit about religion or borders; in fact the Ukrainian usually wears a cross around her neck while wanking away!

Women only have ONE allegiance… to themselves and anyone else who admires them, while men are too complicated and stupid…flags, borders, states, etc.

If there’s a next life I think I’ll try as a woman… playing with my titties all day!

It’s little wonder why women outlive men by around 10 years… less stress and more selfishness!

...@ Paphitis, indeed, it is NATO which holds the moral ground, all the more worrying should they be unable to hold their ground.

BREAKING: Turkey banning Russian warships from the Black Sea ?

https://mobile.twitter.com/ZelenskyyUa? ... 0062%2Fpg1

UPDATE - We had to delete an earlier tweet. "Turkey hasn’t made a decision to close the straits to Russian ships yet," a senior Turkish official told @ragipsoylu.

Zelensky was apparently making a request with his tweet.

...in the days to come we will see who will fight the Russians, who sees them as an invading force, who does not.

Russian speaking Ukrainians are not necessarily "Russian", i'm guessing. And this adds another level of complexity to the fight and what it is about.

"Russianness", like "Turkishness" (and "Greekness") exist; so too "Americans" : something to think about.

Yialousa could end up being right.

Well, apart from the time, place, people.

A sort of a forum Nostradamus. :wink:

...the caravan; "it's what, we've done", he says.

..."were not going to like what we see in the mirror"

...''we acknowledge we are not Leading but profiting", he says; the solution behind an end to this ''discomfort''.

"This(ness)" must stop, the hatred that goes along with such dogma (and myth). In effect 'we' are not a lesser people, those of us not ''Them''.

After the pandemic, and this war on Freedom in the Ukraine, there is much reflection and concern for the world and what it will be; because there is no going back to the way things were. Who wants to, ask yourselves, better is hoped for.
