in response to reader comment: Forgetful and his double talk

Are you certain it was only the US State Department, the US Navy, NATO, Turkey and Archbishop Makarios that ganged up on the poor, defenseless little Cypriot National Guard? A paranoid fantasy so grandiose should include certain unnamed **intergalactic forces**, too, no? I would like to see the full text of this alleged "NATO document" and in the original language, which could not have been English given the clumsy, substandard English phrasing and incorrect punctuation in the alleged quote. This highly trained corps of Makarios bodyguards also is pure invention. What the Archbishop did have was a good, stout pair of legs under his cassock. They carried him in the night to the British Sovereign Base Area and safety. Ah, yes, "atrocities"--like the rape of foreign women and girls. In the West, this is a despicable crime, agreed. Yet, as one moves further east along the shores of the Mediterranean it becomes more of a "cherished tradition".
