The leader of the extreme right Turkish Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), Devlet Bahceli openly threatened Greece that if its army wanted to be thrown into the sea again, the Turkish army was ready.

Commenting on the recent increasing tensions between the two countries in the Aegean Sea, Mr. Bahceli said that Turkey would respond to the Greek moves in the Aegean as it had done in the past, during an address to his party group. Referring to the Cypriot matter and the during his speech, the leader of the nationalist party banged his fist on the desk warning the Greek-Cypriots that Cyprus was and will remain Turkish.

“If the Greek-Cypriots want to unite with Greece at all costs they must leave the island and migrate to Athens and never return back”, he said. Mr. Bahceli claimed the Chief of the Greek armed forces had visited islands that were under Greek occupation, referring to the recent visit by the top military official to the Greek island of Oinouses.

“Someone should inform the Greek government about what happened in 1921-22”, he said in a clear reference to the Minor Asia disaster, as the period is know in Greek history when the Greek army was pushed back by the Turks.

  1. This old fart should fuck off. Sure his country won in Cyprus, 1922 etc, but what they must know is that there will always be resistance, he will die and the republic of Cyprus and Greece will still be on the map. If he wants to fight, I can give him one, one on one, then I will get a knife and scratch into his head the sign of the cross, but not before shoving a piece of bacon down his throat. What is he going to do, pick up a gun and go to Cyprus himself, or will he send young people to die while he sits at his desk in Ankara
