Reader comment on item: Turkey in Cyprus vs. Israel in Gaza
in response to reader comment: Turkish bombs on Cyrpus in 1964

Here, just in the last few days you have:

1- posted 17 postings using nearly 10,000 words and 10s if not 100s of hateful angry words to describe Turks, such as barbarians, genocidal, massacres, rapists, killers, looters, savages;

2- used "Turks and napalm" another 13 times. BTW, here's readily available information regarding recent napalm use by or against countries: Iran(1980–88), Israel(1967, 1982), Nigeria(1969), Brazil(1972), Egypt(1973), Cyprus(1964, 1974), Argentina(1982), Iraq(1980–88, 1991, 2003 - ?), Serbia (1994), Turkey(1963, 1974, 1997), Angola, and United States. Yes, war, wherever it occurs, is very brutal and very ugly.

3- analyzed and shared any historical dirt you think you found on Turks going back to Mongols and Hittites etc;

4- blamed United States and conspiracy theories for Cyprus invasion; again some of your comments verbatim

"…US unleashed the Turkish bloodhound upon Cyprus.."

"….American plans foresaw the Turkish capture of a large part of Cyprus while they didn't foresee any Greek defence. It was a big political game to feed the hungry Turkish wolf with Greek blood…"

"…the fact that the Turkish invasion was from the beginning to the end a US-sponsored scheme with Henry Kissinger as its main author, that both the napalm the Turks used extensively and most of their weaponry in the invasion of Cyprus were almost all US made…."

"..Americans had fooled the Greeks to remove their division from Cyprus in 1967 and blackmailed and terrorized Greece into passivity and to be sure of the Turkish success sent the 6th US Fleet to secure the safe passage of the Turkish navy from Turkey to the beaches of Northern Cyprus…."

YET, with all that emotional outcry, and I repeat, in your nearly 10,000 words, you have not mentioned even once the words Greek dictatorship, junta, enosis, or Sampson the key ingredients for the Greek Cypriot debacle in 1974, resulting in the Turkish invasion of the island. Yes, keep telling yourself otherwise.

And my favorite, hate and anger filled statement by you …. again verbatim: "You Turks are Moslem barbarians that have spread your vicious destructive ways of Islam through unprovoked terror and war against peaceful nations."

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING – No I am not talking about the power of word search, I am talking about the power of hatred and indoctrination. I hope you at least felt better after that. Like I said to you in the past, I wish I could help but even being highly educated with a respectable IQ, it is still beyond my expertise.
