Evidence has emerged that British undercover forces were involved in fomenting the conflict between Greek and Turkish Cypriots ten years before the partition of Cyprus. There, says the Para, he demonstrated the use of British ammunition and sub-machine guns to the Turkish Cypriot irregular forces…. Other documents show that other members of British armed forces were up to their necks in gun running and espionage for the Turks and Turkish Cypriot terrorist militias.
Major Martin Packard recalls being asked to take a visiting US politician, acting secretary of state George Ball, around the island. Undaunted, Martin pursued plans to move Turkish Cypriots back to the villages they had fled. But just as the first resettlement was about to take place, British General Michael Carver had him arrested and flown off the island — in an unmarked CIA plane. This sad story make me cry!!! I wish somebody gives me a handkerchief to wipe my tears! Your sad story only endorses L.
The fact that you are capable of crying confirms that you are a human being and not a machine or animal. Turkey should have taken the whole island and perhaps then you would understand what equality is. Both communities were victims of the extremists within their own communities as well as those of the other side. Many Greeks were forced to denounce their membership of AKEL and other organization that were striving for peaceful relations between the two communities. They drove 20 Turks out of their homes and put them in places which are not different from concentration camps.
By lifting the unfair embargoes imposed on the Turkish Cypriots it can at least right one serious wrong and create a more evenly balanced playing field …. Well said LC…you hit the nail on its head. Your summary in the 4th paragraph from the end is the essence of CyProb…which ostrich-like GC politicians do want to see…hence the 50 yr stalemate. However, I agree with John Mavro…the first sentence in your final paragraph is incorrect. These two resort to demagoguery precisely to postpone the inevitable for as long as possible….
If the Cypriots want their country to prosper and move forward , they must get rid of the likes of the above. We cannot agree with the above conclusion of another otherwise very good and accurate commentary by Loucas Charalambous. For the eventual partition of the island.
Clearing the way for these mafiosos to do as they please.
To steal, plunder, accommodate their friends and family, protect their fellow embezzlers and ensure they did so without the prospect of being caught, never mind brought to court and punished. Since their TC deputies had been forced out and simply were not in position to exercise checks and controls, as the constitution provided, over these criminals.

And nothing was easier than the plundering of state resources with impunity. It would be fatal for them. Who do not want a solution — under any circumstances. In a civilized country these thugs would have been convicted of treason and just about every crime imaginable, branded traitors and shot. Not really my friend Paphitis. The rest is 74 and further.

I have heard all the above before and more than once. For the millionth time,it was settled in I will only pick the following as a sum up and worthwhile comment…………. Ah John — stop telling the truth! Systematically plundering the coffers of the State is easy when the rich and elite minority colluded , irrespective of party , to select the candidates of their choosing to be members of parliament!

The Island is beautiful and personally I love my drive every morning next to the med sea with the sunrise and fishing boats, the colourful sunset over Stavrovouni in the evening,the smell of souvla on the breeze, the warm summer nights in my garden with the amazing sweet smelling night jasmine etc..
So why do you keep whingeing and slating Turkey for your idyllic sounding life? What I have in my life is through hard graft and dedication so, yes I will sit back now and again and enjoy the splendor. Y who is the matinee idol of his generation. Indeed, one can readily imagine how the converse of each advantage Aristotle mentions might offer someone equally many opportunities to exercise equally many virtues. Unlike Cooper, Jiyuan Yu acknowledges the existence of goods unaccounted for by the ergon argument but nonetheless required for eudaimonia The first conception describes the contemplative existence to which a person should aspire.
This existence, though primarily realized in a life of virtuous contemplation, requires—in order to be livable—goods not proper to contemplation per se. There are passages in the NE which strongly imply that Aristotle intends to develop only one notion of eudaimonia—not two as Yu suggests. These remarks should then be considered authoritative when it comes to determining what sort of account of happiness Aristotle intends to offer and whether his intention is to offer more than one. The connection between a person engaging his rational soul in virtuous activity and deriving pleasure from this activity is admittedly intuitive.
However, I believe Aristotle intends to make this connection necessary. Thus, I believe Aristotle intends to demonstrate that eudaimonia entails some form of pleasure, and it is with this entailment in mind that, he lays out the following reductio ad ridiculum argument. For pain is neither good nor bad if pleasure is neither too. Why, then, should he avoid it [i. Thus, Aristotle offers several arguments in the NE, three of them in NE, I, 8, that present pleasure as an inevitable complement to eudaimonia.
The first argument of NE, I, 8 proceeds thusly. The life of the eudaimon man Mr. X— who engages his rational soul in virtuous activity—is inherently pleasurable insofar as Mr. X is a lover of virtue. For, just as horses give pleasure to lovers of horses, so too does virtuous activity give pleasure to lovers of virtue a The ergon argument, however, defines the eudaimon man as virtuous, but not necessarily as a lover of virtue.
The virtue of a flautist, for instance, depends on how well he performs with his flute. By this analogy, virtue is a perfection, but not necessarily a predilection. The second argument of NE, I, 8 asserts that virtuous actions are inherently pleasurable and that virtuous people will lead pleasurable lives just by performing them a But it is not at all clear why we should assume the premise that virtuous actions are inherently pleasurable.
Some actions that Aristotle may well consider virtuous are bound to be discomforting if not downright distressing for the person performing them. Pleasure is a good the happy person will have some share in, but it is not a good sufficient for her happiness. If this is so, virtuous actions must be pleasurable in themselves.
Granted, we may want to say that Mr. X must be genuinely inclined to behave as he does in cases of moral action. But in the case of some of the other Aristotelian virtues, no such requirement obtains. Again, as in the case of the flautist, a talent for something does not entail a preference for it. Here too, then, Aristotle has not proven that pleasure and virtuous activity must go hand in hand. It remains an open question, therefore, how Aristotle may appeal to elements of eudaimonia, which do not follow from the ergon argument that defines it.
Aristotle returns to the question of pleasure and virtuous activity in Book X of the NE but here too, as I argue, fails to establish a necessary connection between the two. However, there are several reasons to think that pleasurable activity does not, for Aristotle, demand extraordinary circumstances. For if pleasure is an essential component of human happiness then pleasure should be entailed by the argument for what happiness involves.
Indeed W. And the pleasure completes the activity. Say Mr. And yet, Mr. X is thoroughly unmoved, indeed totally indifferent to the supposed pleasures of the doorstop, the very pleasures his faculties ought now to be engaging with for the first time. This counterexample—Mr. X and his indifference—casts doubt on the point Aristotle has tried to establish, that pleasure accompanies activities even certain sorts of activities inevitably. Goods vs. Regarding good ancestry, good children, and personal beauty, I argued that Aristotle characterizes eudaimonia in ways exogenous to his ergon argument, thereby disregarding his functional definition of eudaimonia.
