The real reason behind the Cypriot War of 1974 was to prevent the (Greek) Cypriot government of Makarios from allowing the USSR to build a military base on the island, a base that would be close to the sea or on a coastal position, and thus allow for Communist Russia to exert naval influence in the eastern Mediterranean. Sadly, it was all agreed upon in advance by members of NATO (USA, UK, Turkey and Greece at least), even down to the small details of exactly which areas and even streets the Turkish army would capture. Anglo-American divide-and-rule tactics at their most strikingly effective. If you want to know more, check out the CIA files that were declassified back in 2004.
I couldn't find these files the commentor claimed but lets go on.
Also the translation of the Greek comment replies translated to English by a good person for me.
He says that the Greek junta was put in power by the Americans. Also Cyprus had joined the non-aligned movement and was having talks with the USSR. The partition of the island was even agreed upon in 1956 between the democratically elected Greek government and the American representative Kohler , while the Cypriot war of independence against the Brits was still raging on.
There is more that brought my attention. Makarious The Third is known for its Communist thoughts.
What I want to know is... Is there any proof?
What I'd like to know is if there are CIA files that proves this. I am not some denier or anything.
