To allow a certain aggressive and genocidal country belonging to NATO to conquer and grab it making 40% of its territory a NATO dependency in a strategic point of the Mediterranean. We agree on that , don't we ?

So here we go ! Turkish fascists occupied a neutral country only because US nazis blessed the aggression. How could it be otherwise ?

> Greece started something. Turkey finished it ! <

I agree Turkey is a master of genocides , gencide denial and perfidy. And it has very influential friends and sponsors in America who don't care as long as their interests are served .
