Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for keeping us posted on Cypriot developments...it is pretty astounding that this kind of stuff is going on in modern Europe...

Ah, welcome to Cyprus, home to a generation of people who grew up under colonialist rule. It's only 40 odd years later, and they haven't quite gotten with the program yet.

>>A<< Generation? Prior to 1960 when was the last time Cyprus was independant? 314 BC?

Good question. I was just assuming that anyone older than the current generation of rulers (who all grew up under colonialism and would now qualify as political dinosaurs) is dead.

Unfortunately, the only people with happy memories of peaceful coexistence between Greeks and Turks are also of that generation.
