Kastelorizo; Symbolic of Smoldering Embers of Empires Lost

Reader comment on item: Will Turkey and Greece Clash over a Tiny Island?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 22, 2020 at 18:57

Speculations abounding about what the world might expect from a Turkey moving in mysterious circles, who is following that country's leader who appears as someone that cannot see hidden rocks in the fog. Kastelorizo is so close to Turkey that it has an appearance of incongruity that it is not part of Turkey by nexus. But then, the entirety of the region that involves Turkey and some points east appear from an historical perspective to be fashioned for the calamity it is now approaching; and for what: Kastelorizo?
Kastelorizo, as a symbol of historical ambiguity, does not bode well for Turkey.
And as for closing relations with China? It is likely Turkey will have been sidelined long before China finishes with India.
