If you think you are gonna get away with the Aegean sea you are much mistaken. Fcuk your so-called international law. It seems you want war and you are gonna get it. We will correct the 1923 treaty and eventually take our fair share of the islands.

Mark my words. Cyprus conflict was not settled without a war. Nor will the Aegean conflict. There is conflict of interest and sooner or later Turkey and Greece will crash. More to dispute is the nature of war. Will Greece yield after an initial strike, or will it be an all-out war where hundreds of thousands of people will die with an end where Greece is destroyed and Turkey acquires the islands in the Aegean?

Do you honestly think that in this day and age where each
country,Greece and Turkey both armed with the most advanced weapons,will not destroy both each other many times over? And that other countries in the vicinity will not close in and take advantage of both nations? Would either the Greeks or Turks accept a humiliating defeat? Think about it
War is sweet to those who do not know it.Have you-Friendly Turk seen war?

That was the smartest opinion i see long time in the topix ,no war solve a promblem yet ,temporary peace till the next round .Peace and fair agreement excepted by both side creates long lasting peace .Now the Aegean sea promblem ,Turkey has rights too ,noone can object to that but to what degree?Even split on Aegean sea ?as i said before ,is not possible ,from geographical reasons .Where you can draw the line ?how you can have Greek Islands on Turkish sea territory?Many Greek Islands are very close to Anatolia.You can have partial Greek territory over lap Turkish one ,how you will travel to your Island ?,raise the Turkish flag on the main post ?,which required when you cross a non international sea water ways ? is not that easy ,Greece has to move those islands half way close to greece ,any body has an idea how to do that?THe north aegean sea can be split not passing skiros Island or Icaria ,because you have the above promblem>.Personally i dont object a free sailing around the islands or fly over 25000 feet ,not to distarb the islanders .You people both sides destroy many peoples lives with the hate crop,my Father left anatolia 11 years old ,and he cry many times ,missed the place he was born ,with big watermellons .He dint care who is the goverment ,just wanted to see his birthplace again ,he never did .And also a turkish man came to Greece to visit his birthplace after 40 years ,he was happy to see the old Mosque still standing up .Peace people every promblem can be solve needs friendship first,when there is hate is no way to find a solution .

If Greece declares 12 miles nautical waters, Aegean water will be 87% under Greek hegemony. We don't care even if you declare 24 miles nautical waters from your mainland, but if you do that for the islands, we cannot breath!

Do not take it personally. Turkey would go to war to prevent that scenario happening even if it was the USA across the Aegean sea, not Greece.

I don't think Greece will give up on its claim. Greeks did not stop its expansionist views in Cyprus until 1974. Sooner or later, in my view, this issue will also lead to a war between the two countries. It will be costly for us, but the war will allow us to settle this issue for once and for good.
