Ghosts of Ancient Empires Gambling with Modern Tools of Conquests

Reader comment on item: Turkey's "Reconquests" in the Eastern Mediterranean and Beyond

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 1, 2020 at 18:17

And again, history is scoffed at while modern totalitarian ambitions conjure ancient evil spirits in a time that cannot suffer too much more before tearing away any last resort to hospitable life without conflicts. Is it not Cyprus that is ancient Caphtor from which the coast of what is now Gaza was populated by Philistines? When will it stop?
Apparently not until another generation of refugees suffer at the hands of pride-driven antipathies of delusion of grandeur, a resurgence of the Ottoman regime that was thought to have been relegated to the history books; apparently not until the Turkish PM gains his dream over the dreams of those he intends to oppress for his own gratification of reconquest.
