I think you know exactly where TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) is. It is very cowardly and disgraceful for you to have posted using a Turkish name (Hasan Berberoglu). If you have an opinion you should have the guts to declare it under your true identity.
I don't know where you get your history knowledge but it is definitely not from an accurate source. Scores of civilian Turks were slughtered by the Greeks in Cyprus for decades before the 1974 war. Their homes and land were confiscated by the Greeks. The 1974 war simply returned these homes to their true owners. If this war had not ocurred the entire Turkish population of Cyprus would have become extinct like the Turkish population of Crete.
