No Thanksgiving for Turkiye in the Middle East - A Differing Contemplation Awaits a Middle East that Does Not Know Peace

The time is come again the Walrus said, to speak of many things;
Using words few understand; musing over that thought that stings.

Humanity is in crisis; that the world is at the intersecting threshold of competing ideological and theosophical frames of intellectualism by which one might appear to be close to accepting peace; yet can't; even if thrown into an immense cauldron of spiced olive oil by which such immersion and extraction, all of the historical contemplations of mankind's endeavors to live in harmony could be refined for safety and prosperity for all.

Yet, let the record show; all such contemplations are corrupted and are stained with historical narratives of bloodletting for the cause of taking all those competing clashes of religion and secularist ideologies and never desiring to break bread in peace; but to break body and bone to show a deranged sense of superiority that never lasted along enough to tell who might have won.

Up until a few years ago, the ambitions of Russia, the Iranian Islamic Regime and the Ottoman ghosts of Turkiye near at hand in the Middle East; and China battling with North Korea and the caustic clouds of contention over the South China Sea were all tending towards renewed clashes of civilizations. But with the Russian's release of angst towards the paranoid delusion that he would not be content until all the world was reformed to his own version of ideological secularism pursuant to his upbringing in a world in which the only way to hold peace together is by seeing how close nuclear materials can be excited in use before imploding.

Of such is the ideological temperament; but what of the theosophical?

The Iranian Islamic Regime's importation of missiles tipped with WMD technology that threatened by taunts of prior use in Syria are evidently now on a platform in Lebanon to the north of Israel and there is little to suggest they are defensive. With the Ukraine raging and Hizbollah's cousins to the south in 'Palestinian' held enclaves barely containing themselves with anticipation of jihad, there's little else to wonder: when; right?

The clue is already made manifest: look a little closer and all will be explained for the cameras.
