    A Christmas gift for Cyprus

    by Lynn Carroll

    The leaders of Greece and Turkey have been dickering for weeks over the fate of Cyprus, until early this month, Greece's Mr Karamanlis and Mr Averoff agreed with Turkey's Menderes and Zorlu for Turkey that the Island - the third largest in the Mediterranean after Sicily and Sardinia - was to become the independent Republic of Cyprus, pending the endorsement of Britain, the government of which, presently has sovereign custody of this ethnic battleground which, for a decade, has been waiting to get this situation sorted, amicably.

    Mr Macmillan. Back in Britain, made encouraging noises, and a conference was quickly staged in London, where it took three governments to put the rubber stamp on an agreement that will now see the Island ruled by a Greek president and a Turkish Vice-presidency with a Council and house of Representatives comprising , roughly 70% Greeks, 30% Turkish, in each case. The British will retain control of the military bases, situated on the Island as before.

    So the Turks no longer seek partition, and the Greek-Cypriots no longer will clamour to become part of Greece, for the time being, anyway, ending this long-standing problem. There is always the possibility that it may flare up again, for there are too many zealots on each side, to go gracefully into that good night of compromise.

    But for now, the good news for the embattled residents is that there is peace on the Island, which will be the first interluder since Archbishop Makarios rashly declared for "Enosis" (Union with Greece), his militant sermons opening floodgates of Greek-Cypriot and British blood, alike, in terrorist attacks throughout the Island, but the British general public which today mourns the loss of many fine young men in this strife, won't be pleased to learn that the so-called "holy" man, who begat this unholy shooting of guns, and throwing of grenades, the Archbishop, himself, has been appointed the first President of this new Republic.

    No atomic testing in Antarctica -why?

    By Gary George

    Twelve nations signed the Antarctic Treaty System agreement, yesterday. Between them, they have fifty research stations on this Southern polar continent, which has no indigenous population of its own.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=Antar...DqqL0gKTx7PoDg

    To me, this is like some tinpot dictator declaring that he has no intention of invading the moon, anytime soon. Why would he? It’s so remote, he hasn’t the funds or the technology to even get there, let alone do anything in its alien environment, once he lands there, it poses no threat to his own country, and it’s too far away from its adversaries to provide a springboard from which to launch an attack on them.

    The same arguments apply to the representatives of the four countries most likely to want to continue atomic testing.The U.S.A.; the U.S.S.R.; the U.K. and France; they, in fact, are the furthest of those twelve countries from Antarctica, it is probably the least of the world’s territories in which any of the four would wish to test anything.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=the+A...XUOIuW0gKG9okI

    The only reason that any of them have any “research stations” at all on that faraway barren mammoth glacier is for the national ego “Oo, look at me, my country must be of some account, it’s into scientific research!” Besides which 1959 happens to be the designated International Geophysical Year (IGY) of 1957–58., yet another of those trendy occasions that social engineers dream up for the Great Unwashed to “celebrate”
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=Inter...GIuJ0gLdzYqADQ

    This Treaty, for me, has sinister implications - is it a forerunner to one or more, or all of the nuclear four to begin atomic testing in the polar continent much more at hand, the Arctic proper, the Great North land of the Inuit, Indian, polar bear and the North Pole? ...and if challenged, able to point out “Ah, but we have nobly undertaken to keep our hands off of Antarctica...we’ve gotta have our atomic fix, somewhere!”

    So this Treaty signed yesterday might be a case of international bait-and-switch. Lull the world into thinking that you’re serious about disarmament, then, when it’s no longer a trendy topic, continue blowing up this planet - starting in the Arctic Circle.
