War. It is what it is. Its not meant to be pretty, its not meant to be honorable. We are in such a poor shape on planet Bob that we literally hail people who follow their treaties as honorable. Stop it Planet Bob, just stop it.
The job of a military in a war is to win. You win by killing people and breaking things. Friendships, treaties, all of that nonsense aside, you have two sides in a war. If you are not the same as a friend, you know what that makes you? An enemy. It may sound brutal, and the reality does not lend itself to pretty propaganda pieces about how alliance A is stabbing alliance B in the back by attacking alliance B's friend. Its ok that you are on the other side. And its ok that you let the coalition on your side use your friend on the other side to pick and choose entry points that specifically cripple your friend on the other side's ability to help their friends that they are fighting on the same side with. In this situation, you placing your friend on the other side in a bad position to help your side gain an advantage is STRATEGY. Its not dishonorable at all, not ONE IOTA, to be part of a planning channel, that SEEKS to put your friends on the other side in a bad position. You maintain your honor in this. But then, your friend on the other side decides that they want to do what they can to help the people they are fighting with, on the same side, to do the unthinkable (win a war, SHOCKING ISNT IT), and they decide that they will not let an ally of an ally cripple a war effort, so they do the unthinkable, and hit an ally of an ally. They are treacherous. They did not allow their friend on the other side, to enable their friends on the other side to make their decision making about who to hit difficult. This is not strategy, this is dishonor. And should incite rage. Stop it planet Bob, just stop it.
HOW DARE YOU TRY TO WIN A WAR.
This just in, doing what is best to win a war is horrible. News at 11. Oh yes, and while we are talking about Sparta talking about honor. The morning before ODNs horrific pre-empt on Spartas ally in MHA, Sparta gov approached Olympus. About getting a blanket peace on the olympus front. Why you ask? So they could...are you ready for this.... hit ODNs ally in MK. Honor, indeed. Stop it planet Bob, just stop it.
