Ive been researching Cyprus! Why is a huge Turkish Invasion force simply allowed to plonk itself down there and not budge even though no country other than Turkey reconises its claim?

Because Turkey is actually AzH in disguise.

Because Turkey is moderately important trade partners with members of the EU and has a modern military. Take away just one of those aspects and NATO would have dealt with the subject awhile ago. Next issue is. Is Cyprus important enough to go to war over?

True. On Further research, nothing is done as Turkey has one of the world largest Armies, with modern Equipment. also its a trade partner. And also the USA and many western countries consider it one of their Allies (even though its a lousy alliance, I mean, im no fan of the US/UK in Iraq, however if Turkey allowed their bases to be used for the invasion it would have stopped many weapons and the more Islamist members of the Iraqi army fleeing and hooking up with insurgents, stopping alot more death, seen as US (The major world power) activally ignore their Illegal invasion, seemed the least they could do) Ive also been trying to find opinions from Turks, most ive contacted, seem to think they legally own the north and see their occupation army and the illegal influx of mainland turks is legitimate. Turkey claims to be a secular democratic nation, yet to me, they seem to be some kind of psuedo "Democratic-Dictatorship" if that makes any sense.
