You may well not have noticed it so far but things tend to be very interconnected and have a historical dimension. "Historical dimension" means i.al. that things evolve and develop over time so that past events are quite relevant in understanding present actions and developments. In this sense the consistent Turkish denial of reality and amnesia is a very pertinent factor to bear in mind .

"REGARDING THE CYPRUS ISSIUE , BEST SOURCE IS UNITED NATIONS RECORDS. FIRST OF ALL THESE RECORDS MUST BE STUDIED BEFORE MAKING ANY COMMENTS. OTHERWISE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE."

Are you implying you have studied them ?

" SO I ONLY LAUGH TO WHAT YOU WROTE IN YOUR COLOUMN AND TO OUR FRIENDS COMMENTS FROM POLAND. FIRST OF ALLMUST DEAL WITH NECESSARY DOCUMENTS AND SAURCES THEN HE CAN COMMENT. SOURCES SHOULD BE NEUTRAL SORCES EVEN IF FROM UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS OR EDITORS.. THEN WILL MEAN SOMETHING SO ONE CAN ACHÄ°EVE REALITIES.

Speaking of laughing I am amused by the contrast between your grandiloquent insistence on primary sources and a total lack of them in your reply. This is definitely something worth a laugh and which has moved me to call what you have written a "pseudo-reply".

You asserted :"napalm was not used. forced etnic cleaning and colonisation is a total lie". And I have exposed it as a lie referring to a few sources. But you have still a unique chance to correct me by producing - to use your wording and showy capital letters - "UNITED NATIONS RECORDS" & "NEUTRAL SORCES" proving that no naplam was used by the Turks in 1974 , that 180 000 Greeks that were expelled by Turkish terror and bombs are still happily living in Northern Cyprus , that more than 80% of the population in the north of the island that have been imported from Anatolia is in fact native to Cyprus. Until instead of your big-mouthed claims I have seen real sources worth the name proving that I'll not refrain from calling your answer a pseudo-reply. To make my definition short - a pseudo-reply is paramount to a lie.
