Viewing this powerful documentary caused me great sorrow knowing the events that caused the innocent people of Cyprus such loss and anguish and continues to do so. Personally I feel shame as I was a marine stationed aboard a ship in the U.S. fleet that was involved in evacuating refugees (American and European) from Cyprus. Earlier our forces were involved in a NATO military exercise with the Turks that was the cover for there invasion of Cyprus just as a year earlier the joint U.S.-Chilean naval exercise was a cover for the overthrow of Allende. I feel shame for America and Britain (especially for being a guarantor of Cypriot sovereignty) to allow Turkey (that wants to annex Cyprus or parts of it) to invade and still occupy 4o% of a country and for its armed forces to massacre innocent people. Greater is the tragedy because many Turks have Greek blood in their veins, with Greek speaking lands being under Turkish (Seljuk or Ottoman) domination for centuries and its subject peoples converted to Islam for economic or spiritual reasons or being forced to for survival. It is tragic that the fate of smaller or less powerful countries and its peoples be used as pawns to appease the powers that be. Every nation and culture that has risen will also fall, nothing lasts forever and what you sow you will reap. Hopefully mankind will learn this message before it is too late.
