tCypriot revolution or a cool head needed instead?

The Turkish Cypriots (tCypriots) do not need a revolution. They need a cool head to form a realistic vision and strategy for the future. They must come up with a plan that can be accepted or discussed with gCypriots. Only this matters!

If so, that is if a common goal is set, then nothing can stand in the way of a reunited Cyprus, not even Turkey with its military might.

As I keep saying, whether a federation or a 1960 v2.0 is sought, the thinking of majority gCypriots today is still embedded in Makarios' 1963 ideas. The fact is 1960 is a working constitution for over 80% of Cypriots and there is no reason why it cannot be made to work for the rest of the Cypriots, all of us as proud EU citizens and euro holders.

If I were a tCypriot I would spend my time more towards solidifying a realistic vision for tomorrow for tCypriots rather than responding to meaningless acts of an increasingly desperate Turkey (and its Cypriot cronies) which is trying to hang on to her Cyprus prize.

Cyprus' salvation lies almost entirely in tCypriot hands.
And it all starts with seeing eye to eye with their Cypriot compatriots who make up the overwhelming majority of the country.

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.
