You are an idiot Mercy. Either you think your feeble attempts at justification are actually fooling someone, in which case you are an idiot, or you actually believe them, in which case you are an idiot. What is very funny is that Sethanor and Ithakus' posts were almost exactly alike in content, save for the fact that Sethanor's was more explicit in it's demands.
The fact is that Thakria and Mercinae are obviously much more concerned about freedom. Given the fact that you have recently invaded an innocent city and robbed it of it's wealth, I hardly think you stand for anything resembling freedom.
