A Scotland YES would have upset the "S"BAs

Geo-politically speaking, the USA and the UK are for all intents and purposes one and the same. Beats me why they have or need two permanent UNSC vetoes. It is no different in Cyprus, where either preserving the status quo or pushing through any solution, is the strategic goal of the Us. This explains why:

"During this transition period [w/ a YES vote by Scots], the United States would need to fill any gaps in military- and intelligence-sharing that result from the loss of this cooperation. For example, the National Security Agency funds various programs with its British counterpart, the Government Communications Headquarters; the two agencies operate a joint base in Cyprus. Such programs would be impacted by a nebulous transition process."

The Mother of all Insults

"REUNIFICATION" is at best a euphemism for addressing illegal occupation, ethnic cleansing & colonization. Most Cypriots consider it a Grand Insult. Defining the problem correctly is a sine qua non for properly addressing it. Otherwise you are attempting to solve the British' and the Turks' Cyprus problem, not the Cypriots' British-Turkish problem.

Yes You Can Reunite the Kingdom!

Even if Scots break Britain up on September 18th 2014 there is a well thought out model that can put it back together. It's called Bizonal Bicommunal Federation or BBF for short, and it is 100% British from conception to full fledged plan. Under the wise leadership of Lord David Hannay the BBF model was envisioned for another island, the small island-nation of Cyprus in the warm seas of the eastern Mediterranean. It failed to gain popular approval. But fortunately, in the case of assembling back the UK we would not have to worry about concocting zones and legitimizing illegal massive population transfers, as the zones already exist by history on Britain, thereby hopefully giving meaning to the unique work of Lord Hannay!

Has anything effectively changed for "Turkey" 's Kurds?

State racism in Turkey and Kurdish question - By Hadi Elis 13/05/2002, The Reason for the War in Kurdistan: State Racism of the Republic of Turkey

The Denial of the Existence of Kurdish people in the Republic of Turkey by the State is the main reason for Ethnic Conflict/ Civil War in Turkey and the Middle East. The aggression and atrocities against Kurdish people as "state policies" started after the establishment of the Republic of Turkey in 1923, and since then the human rights violations by the Turkish State officials (state security institutions and its personnel, Army, Police forces, Intelligence apparatus, paramilitary forces) are nationally and internationally very well documented.

Turkey bugs out of the anti-ISIS coalition. Why not a base in Kurdistan?
Sept. 12, 2014 6:37 p.m. ET

Was it only a week ago that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel listed a "core coalition" of 10 countries willing to join the U.S. effort to destroy the Islamic State? Since then Britain has categorically ruled out military strikes in Syria, while Germany has ruled out any use of force. Now Turkey is bugging out.
