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.
