How Cyprus has become an island of lost dreams for some

65 ratings | 34211 views
With its warm climate Cyprus became the perfect place for a holiday home or place to retire. But the collapse of the banks robbed many people of their savings and left some with half finished properties turning the dream of a home in the sun into a nightmare.

Those who are rich or have wealth or THINK they have it, suffer precisely because they have money.

Cypriots have always been known for scamming every nationality that came to island: in 1970th and 80th Lebanese, 80th and 90th Brits, 2000th Russians. Recently, there was an inflow of Chinese who quickly backed off after they realized Cyprus is a scamming island and there is nothing to do there. Ideally, Cyprus should be isolated by international community without reunification with Turkish Cyprus - that would be a wonderful to see how they all die out... BTW, only Cypriots still call Turkish Cyprus occupied territory...

Alex Dixon ''but that was still no reason for Turkey to invade'' You shouldn't comment if you don't know anything about the history of Cyprus. Without writing an entire book, here are the basics that happened just prior to the legal intervention by Turkey as per the Treaty of Guarantee. Greece supported the terrorist organization EOKA B with arms, funds and manpower to murder British people as well as Turkish Cypriots, including women and children. Greece attempted to assassinate Makarios, the president of Cyprus. He later fled the country and Greece installed a puppet government with the sole purpose of annexing the island. This action broke the whole concept of the Treaty of Guarantee as it directly threatened the existence of the sovereign nation of Cyprus. It was only a few days afterwards that the Republic of Turkey sent their troops to stop the illegal annexation of the island, protect the Turkish Cypriots who had been run down into fortified enclaves consisting of only 3% of the land area and to end the intercommunal violence. There has been peace since 1974. This semi permanent solution has worked very well and no one has had to live in fear of their life since.
