Turkey never recognized Greek Cyprus and is decided to erase it. Now Texas-based Noble Energy, operating under license from the Greek Cypriot government, had moved a drilling rig into the area. Turkey has announced its retaliation. May be Turkey is threatening us so we shall not dare to interfere with its coming attack on Cyprus (sorry, the Cyprus Peace Operation; in turkish: Kıbrıs Barış Harekâtı).
Having the presence of Turkish troops in the north, British bases and a UN peacekeeping mission, Cyprus has been defined by the UN as "one of the most densely militarised areas in the world" (UN Secretary General Report, S/1995/1020, 10 December 1995).
