Let them remove their 40,000 criminals on the Island and let the refugees back to their homes and properties as the whole world has been telling them for the past 36 years first

We have been waiting 36 years for the world to:

1. Prosecute the greeks who organised the military coup of 1974.

2. Prosecute the greeks who tried to assasinate Archbishop Makarios, the President of Cyprus.

3. Prosecute the greeks who attacked anyone (including greek cypriots) that would not support their violent Enosis.

And while we are at it, when will the Republic of Cyprus return the Turkish Cypriot properties in the South; in Larnca, Limassol, in Phapos?

When will the world call to account the architects of the Akritas Plan (the greek plan to exterminate Turkish Cypriots)?

The greek mentality about Cyprus is sickening.

The greeks were the aggressors; the victim was Cyprus, both greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot.

Now why do you wish to prolong the suffering of innocent Turkish Cypriots? 36 years is enough.

If ths is your attitude, then please stay far away in the USA.

You should have told Nikos Samson and Greek Junta not to send out invitation.
As long as Greek Cypriots desire was an Enosis, outcome was always going to be a WAR.
Cyprus is not Greek, never been part of Greece. Small population of Turkish Cypriots got every right to have self determination.

North Cyprus is not part of Turkey.
All we Turkish Cypriots want is to live in peace, without any fear.
Greeks want all Cyprus to themself.
Cyprus is not a Greek, Greeks never owned Cyprus, Cyprus never been part of Greece, and it will never be a Greek Island in Med. Simple.

YOU started the conflict in 1958. STOP saying it was started in 1963. It started in 1958 by YOU TCs.

Even Dr Kucuk was LYING that "thousands of TCs were killed by EOKA" in 1958:

http://hansard.millbanksystems.com/commons/19...

You, Emir Soler, believe the lies of the Turkish propaganda websites, like Blackadder does, and you come here to LIE, like Dr Kucuk used to do, that "thousands of TCs" were murdered by GCs.

And here is how it started, as reported in the above article's link, in accordance with the 1950 Menderes Plan (Turkish PM Menderes) to return Cyprus to Turkey after the British left. TCs STARTED TO KILL GCs FIRST:

In June 1958 the British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan was expected to proposed a plan to resolve the Cyprus issue. In light of the new development the Turks created fierce riots in Nicosia aiming to promote the idea that Greeks and Turks could not live together and therefore any plan that would promote that would not be viable, instead partition would be the only viable solution. This violence soon to be followed by bombing, Greek Cypriots deaths and looting of Greek owned stores and houses resulted in Greeks and Turks started to evade mixed populated villages that the respective were a minority in search of safety. This was effectively the beginning of segregation of the two communities.[8]. On the 7th of June 1958 a bomb exploded at the entrance of the Turkish Embassy in Cyprus. Following the bombing Turkish Cypriots looted Greek Cypriot properties. On June 26 1984 the then Turkish Cypriot Leader, Rauf Denktash, admitted on British channel ITV that the bomb was placed by the Turks themselves in order to create tension.[9] On the 27th of January 1958 riots by Turkish Cypriots forced the British Colonial soldiers to open fire against the Turkish crowd, and for the first time intervene against the atrocities. The events continued until the next day. During the events Arif Tahsin met Rauf Denktash and asked: "For God sake give the order for the killings to stop". Denktash replied : "These killings are useful, with these our voices will be heard"[10] By 1958 signs of dissatisfaction with the British increased on both sides, with Turkish Cypriots now forming Volkan, later known as the TMT paramilitary group as a means of promoting partition and the annexation of Cyprus to Turkey as dictated by the Menteres plan.

resources of the entire country,It is not free to me when I have to pay border guards the equivalent 40 Euros to see what was left to my home and property

I'm just shocked at you, a Turkish-Cypriot, condoning Turkey's uninvited intrusion into our(you and me) country, the desecration of our ancestral lands and the continued denial of basic human rights...Remember mate, you are a Cypriot first...
you are not a stupid boy re greek
france and germanys agenda is different what germany didnt achieve with hitler they are now doing with EU controlling the whole of europe if Turkey comes in they wouldnt be able to do this and this is what they are scared of
