Are we so gullible?

I don't understand. If Turkey meddles in Cypriot affairs so abusively, why don't we meddle in Turkey's affairs, if only to highlight her approach towards her own Kurdish ethnic minority? Some would say Turkey has a legal basis to be interested in Cyprus, given to her in 1960. But the truth is her responsibility, the responsibility of all three guarantors, was to protect the Republic of Cyprus, not destroy it. Turkey's meddling has been, to say the least, unwarranted. Why then not return the favor by asking her to apply her own majority-minority thinking at home before preaching Cypriots about the way things should be. Are we so gullible to accept passively Turkey's application of double standards? In my humble opinion the only way Turkey will be forced to make a move in Cyprus is if the world, and Cyprus must start such debate, calls Turkey's behavior towards her own citizens as diametrically opposing to what she preaches in Cyprus.

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.
