UN Eye

In today’s Scrappleface: Blix Needs More Time to Monitor U.S. Elections

It’s satire.

This, in today’s BBC On This Day: 1964: Guns fall silent in Cyprus

Since then on the BBC’s Cyprus timeline:

  • 15 July 1974: Greek Officers launch coup in Cyprus
  • 20 July 1974: Turkey Invades Cyprus
  • 21 July 1974: Cyprus conflict spills into London
  • 23 July 1974: Greek military rule gives in to democracy
  • 30 July 1974: Peace deal for Cyprus
  • 13 February 1975 Rauf Denktach declares independent Turkish Cyprus
  • 19 February 1978: Egyptian forces die in Cyprus gunfight
  • 15 November 1983: Turkish Republic of Cyprus declared
  • 20 January 2003: Cyprus leaders discuss re-unification
  • 11 March 2003: Cyprus peace talks collapse
  • 28 April 2003: Cypriots cross Green Line for first time in 30 years
  • 24 April 2004: Greek Cypriots reject UN reunification plan

Not satire, and offered without comment.
