Cyprus Need Firm US Backing

Reader comment on item: Cyprus on the World Stage

Submitted by Dave (United States), Dec 28, 2011 at 21:45

Now is the time for Mrs. Clinton and the President to be firm and let Turkey know that we will not let Cyprus be bullied by Erdogan and his band of raiders. It's not just a matter of national interest - it's the right thing to do.

Instead, we will probably hear the sounds of silence for fear of offending our "ally", Turkey. That's just not leadership.
