Asia Minor has a donble series of
most difficult mountain ranges, Taurus
and .Antl-Taums, so that armies must
vklrt them to the north or to the south.
Russia now closes the route to-the
north so that if England can close the
cne to the south. she will be as secure
in Mesopotamia ' as she is n South t
Africa, since, there: is no avenue' byi
which an army could eome. The great
difficulty, In coming is orout of Egypt '
has been the. intense heat of the desert
south and west of Gaza, but the papers
speak of a railroad having been bidlt
across the desert. This desert is cool
at night, so that trains need run'
through it only by night, since the
distance IS not great. The English al
teady have a naval base at Cyprus, so
that they control the sea and can thus
assist the army moving by land. The
English are about 400 miles from their
goal and must cross the high moun
tains of Lebanon or swing to the east
where a railroad has already been '
built through Damascus. If they swing ;
to the east they will withdraw f rom j
the protecon of the fleet. They may j
have so .completely demoralized the
Turks that this protection is not
necessary. V .
"This - seems Id me the board on
which the game of war is being pUyed.
Already Germany is helpless in.. Ar
menia and Mesopotamia and if Eng
lish forces can get Aleppo then the
power add influence of England will
have been . doubled by this war. and
the immense resources of Egypt and
the entire valley of the Euphrates and
Tigris will fall into her lap. This will
mean a railroad from Capetown to
Boinfiay,. and - a .future for the world
which has never entered into thfe mind
of the most enthusiastic dreamer."
-Incidentally,. It is pointed out that
the British forces in their northward
march through Palestine toward the
ancient pass of Issus must cross the
supposed . field of the battle ot Ar
mageddon. - :
