not exactly about thread , ı will readily admit , but let's say there is a continuity thing here . "molon sabe" ... ı can't find the newspaper as ı type this , so apologies in case of wrong spelling and stuff . But that's reportedly Greek for "If you dare, come and take" , during a spat in which the Greek Defence Minister (?) targets the leader of the Main Opposition in Turkey . So according to latest claims 18 "habitable or semi habitable" islands are among the 156 geographic locations that fell under Turkish jurisdiction in 2002 (at least according to Ankara) and yet are under Greek control now . Because A-K-P says extremely nothing on subject , in contrast to having an opinion anything down to mosque locations on Cuba , political opposition always uses it ; after the mutual show of Lozan disagreements the Greeks love to rub it in , so there you are . Main Opposition , simply because they know they will never win the elections , has made it a campaign pledge that their leader will take the islands back in 2019 . Everybody knows no "Muslim" will ever notice that Priests are "blessing" the takeovers and Byzantine flags are reportedly flown . Which might be Greek Military banners , ı wouldn't rightly know . time for a Turkish saying then ... Ders alınsaydı Tarih hiç tekerrürden ibaret olur muydu ? Equals History would not repeat itself if people learned from it . Nobody has even bothered about just this year so the Greeks must be confident , having a little fun even and never losing a single night's of sleep on why nobody ever expected Goverments of the Turkish Republic to gain territory , because the whole system was built up not to lose territory again , after 240 years if one needs any known reference point . New Turkey , well , has changed the world in a fortnight , we hear , organizing stiff resistance to the Orange Messiah's Kudüs infidelity , getting 128 votes in favour of a Palestinian state with East Kudüs as its capital . With 9 against , 35 abstaining and 21 not showing up in the UN on the day . ı would have a feeling 140 would be the average number any pro-Palestinian thing would have gained , but no , "Muslims" defeated Trump . Even Christian states had a fear but they were encouraged when the Turkish delegation showed up . Exactly why what comes next will be ignored , but let's have it for the record . some typically hare-brained American general has told his troops on exercise in Norway that a war is coming . The quarter to 1/8 White Wabbit (Mattis to American folks here and an epitome of the learned general according to some book from 2003) is on the same tangent . Some Evil Commies are asking for it and a war might take place on the Korean Peninsula . Yeah , some proxy war in which Trump wins as he was born to do . Let Americans believe that . We know whatever happens in the interim , whatever the settlement , we will end up in the opposite sides and Greek presence will be forcibly removed . People will die on those islands . They will be mostly yours . You will be listening to the nets , yours asking for support , for reinforcements , for cover . Your Ministers will not be volunteering to die with them . Nor you will be left in a position to do anything about it . Beware of what you are condemning .
