Cyprus Solution Depends on Turkey's and its army

Postby andreas18 » Wed Oct 08, 2003 12:28 pm

Under the banner front-page title "They will settle their accounts in Cyprus", Turkish Cypriot daily AFRIKA newspaper (07.10.03) reports that the army and the Erdogan government are "getting ready to settle their accounts" in Cyprus.
The paper writes, inter alia, the following: t is alleged that the military authorities in Turkey and the civilian government are for the first time in a serious disagreement on the Cyprus issue. It is alleged that while the military authorities support Denktas, whom they have been backing for 40 years, Erdogan and Gul are exerting their power in favour of the opposition.

Erdogan is allegedly refraining from clarifying his stance because the Cyprus lobby in Ankara is still powerful. It is noted that he will show his real intentions after the opposition wins the 14 December elections.

The Generals in Ankara seem to be more calm and cold-blooded than ever before the Cyprus developments. They seem to be sure that nothing could happen in Cyprus without their wish and instructions. The cold-bloodedness of the military authorities is due to the fact that they do not see any serious danger in the developments.

The Generals, just like Erdogan, are waiting to make their real assessments after the 14 December elections. For the time being, they are refraining from making unnecessary comments about an election for the result of which they are sure.

A defeat of Denktas in Cyprus would mean defeat of the army in Turkey by Erdogan. Denktas" win would be registered as a victory of the army against Erdogan"

Erdogan and Gul seem to me that have already been deafeated by the military. Some months ago they tried to go against the military but it seems to me that they failed. Nobody can move the Generals from their power. They are the ones that rule, and they will continue to do so no matter who wins the elections in the occupied areas.
