Try not to pretend that the poor Oldonians are the victim here. It was them who declared war on us for "breathing space", it was them who first attacked us, it is them who are constantly refusing peace ... if they are a victim then they are the victim of their warmonger ruler..we want nothing from them yet they will be rewarded by You...What do you think the Oldonian civilians killed in your army's capture of their city think of your words?
Now we are offering more than 1/3 of our cities but it's not enough for you.. yet you expect us to stay back, even give you our troops and leave us in dust..
And Piercia.. we were forced then to accept the treaty which left half of our cities in Russian hands. But we tried to live in peace, it become impossible after the Russians evil actions.
But here comes Rome and his fabolous offer: "betray Sparta and you can keep the lands you have now-just stay back untill i destroy them..." We would had no honor accepting such an offer.
All hail to Rome, ruler of the world, who decides who lives and dies. Nice future we have.
