Northern Cyprus doesn't even exist -- except in eyes of 1 nation (Turkey). Though I think N.Cyprus SHOULD be recognized (as Israel is widely recognized, except by 2-4 Arab hold-outs), N.Cyprus is not, thus "international law" (administered by U.N.) doesn't recognize their "sovereignty". Everyone has a right to their own opinion, but not to their own facts, and the above are FACTS even though I don't like these facts. Thus, how such a FACTUALLY wrong post can get 30-to-1 "thumbs up" exhibits a disturbing ignorance (or willful/purposeful desire to ignore) the FACTS of international law.
