What was expected has happened; the inevitable has come to pass! Italy felt compelled by considerations of national dignity to occupy Tripoli, to bring the two Turkish provinces in Africa under her absolute sovereignty. The Ottoman Government had never properly realised Italy's attitude. Turkey's political blindness was founded on two illusions; firstly, that Italy would never come to the point of facing the Tripoli problem, and secondly that, even if she attempted to do so, the Great Powers would never give Italy a free hand in the matter. These initial blunders have caused Turkey the loss of Tripoli and Cyrenaica. The treaty between England and France of 1898-9 did not suffice to wran Turkey of the danger she was running of losing her two last African Provinces, nor did later the understanding of Italy with the French and British Governments serve as a warning to the Ottoman government...Matters in Tripoli were going from bad to worse. During the last few years misery has been rampant, anarchy has reigned supreme, the prestige of the Turkish Government has been actually reduced to a myth.show more
