While there may have been an 'opportunity' in wiping out the Springdalian legions

just east of the border, I'm sure you'd be well aware of the minimum costs in

terms of troops and rations, not to mention time. And so we may have had a victory

we'd have then declared war on the one remaining city that we are not at war with

who's army as again I'm sure you're well aware is considerably larger than ours.

Now, forgive me my mortal ignorance but I was of the opinion the mark of a good

leader, whether it be Field Marshall or any other public leader, was not to lead

a city into wars that would not be good for them in the long term, regardless of

whether there would be some short term glory or victory. But I bow to your divine

widsom in these matters, no doubt I am again mistaken. Thakria is not going to

be led into going to war again.

Of course, I'm sure with your infinite and divine wisdom, war and subsequent

invasion of 3 cities combined would just be a matter of ordering the troops,

alas, we are mere mortals, we cannot invade 3 cities at once.
