Thakria is not now, nor has it ever been, so stupid as to overextend itself or not to provide for the safety and support of its armies. Rather obviously unlike some other places, don't you think. Just because Mercinae is lying in rubble is no reason
for you to further demonstrate the city's incompetence by assuming that we have overextended ourselves. Just once if you would make sure you are informed before you open your mouth, it would be nice.
