Circumstances alter cases

“The present war in the East is a sordid and greedy squabble over the division of the spoils taken from the Turk. Bulgaria (who herself deserves little sympathy) will in all probability be overborne by her former Allies. She is now surrounded by a ring of enemies, so that she cannot even fight with her back to the wall. The most shameless and dastardly act has been that of Roumania, who stood aside while there was any fighting to be done with the Turk, or while Bulgaria was free to deal with her, and who chooses the present moment to declare war without any pretext, and to claim a hand in the division of spoils she has shed not a drop of blood to win.”—”Reynolds’s,” July 13 1913.
