Make the comparison yesterday!

History will be unforgiving if you and I are not capable to use Turkey's Achilles' heel to our advantage. It's not as if we have a number of other options at our disposal.

Turkey will never agree to Kurds seceding, at least not immediately and certainly not before an all-out war. Thus, she will have to grant some kind of autonomy and in the process provide community rights for the first time to her ethnic minority of Kurds.

She naturally wants to do so after she settles Cyprus, and this is exactly why she is so pressed to solve Cyprus, not because of her EU aspirations. The longer Cyprus remains unresolved Turkey is vulnerable to the comparison of the tCypriot and Kurdish plights, as Turkey holds the key to both. Once Cyprus is solved however then she can wash her hands off and claim that the two issues are not relevant and in any case she has nothing to do with Cyprus anymore.

Turkey dreads the comparison! Especially now. That is why every gCypriot's duty is to make it & make it known.

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.
