We await your move, Ergenekon scum!

A state or even a statelet needs land. Legal land. Usurpers have not an inch of it. How hard a concept is that to grasp?

The truth is we have the British to thank for the land registry [re: individual property] and the bases [re: statehood], the latter having served as insurance, albeit expensive, for the Republic of Cyprus.

Three options for Ergenekon's next moves:

[a] an agreed solution
[b] annexation
[c] continuation of the "trnc" pretense of a state

Alternative [c] is neither financially nor politically viable, especially as its original Cypriot residents are becoming a rarer phenomenon every day. Someone caustically put it this way "In the near future we [TCs] will be kept in a zoo to be displayed to the visitors."

Alternative [a] seems unlikely given current TC thinking which is like a trailer to a low budget Turkish propaganda movie. We can always hope for a velvet T-Cypriot revolution. Reread Makarios' 1963 document for majority GC thinking in as far as the principles that should be adopted for any solution (I would bet Turkish majority thinking would support it too in addressing their Kurdish ethnic minority's demands)! A very wise document indeed. Click here to read it.

Alternative [b] presents itself as the only solution, and the ideal end destination scenario in Turkey's Ergenekon thinking, albeit as illegal and difficult to maintain as [c], with potentially serious political repercussions for Turkey.

My guess is Turkey will proceed with [b] with a lot of fanfare, ostensibly as payback for its doomed EU negotiations. The minute she does so will be the beginning of a new chapter in Turkish - EU/USA/NATO relations which will have very negative repercussions for Turkey's fascist establishments. It will be the ideal pretext the west this time around, is looking for to mitigate Turkish newly found arrogance and ill-thought self-aggrandizement, as well as to politely suggest to her that her democracy needs some serious tweaking.

Unfortunately for the Turks, the EU via the accession process, understands far better Turkey and its two cardinal sources of democratic deficit: her Kurdish ethnic minority issue and her undemocratic military constitution, both of which have had and continue to this day to have very negative repercussions for Cyprus.

Cyprus was the price paid for Greece to regain democracy in 1974. How ironic that Cyprus will be the identical price Turkey will have to pay to have a chance for true democracy at home and reconciliation between its majority Turkish and minority Kurdish communities.

We await your move, Ergenekon scum!

Above all, we await yours, Cypriots residing north of the toy border!

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
