Not Meddling Back Proves Incompetency Mr President!

"Turkey" meddles in just about everyone else's affairs, more recently Egypt, Syria, Israel, etc. No other country has been meddled more in than Cyprus. I want to see the Cyprus government return the favor by offering Turks advice about their impasse with Kurds. As a matter of fact I demand it. Turks' own ideas in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 00's for balancing the rights of a majority and ethnic minority circa 15% have been plenty. It is time we start reminding Turks of their own ideas and how they could help address their Kurdish conundrum. The right time is now, while their constitutional upgrade is being debated.

Mr President, in 2004 I thought you behaved in an incompetent manner. I still do, along with a majority of Cypriots, including many that voted for you in office. This is your chance to redeem yourself. Show that you have spine for Cyprus, not just millions stashed away. Risky? Yes. Necassary? Yes. If you are a leader that is. You will be surprised how many people in the region and beyond will enjoy watching you pay Turks back in "liras".

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.
