DISPOSABLE SOLDIERS: LESS...IS NOT MORE

There was once a king who had glory on his mind and decided to start a war with an enemy country he knew he could beat in a military conflict. In short order he conquered the country and subdued their people, who were already weary from previous wars with other enemy countries.

He declared victory soon after in front of a backdrop of his country's military, who had not yet been hurt or killed in the war.

All seemed certain for the king's place in the history books...so he started another war with another lesser strengthened country. Quietly, he began to gather a bad reputation amongst the surrounding countries, so in response, he began to torture and humiliate the defeated country's population. The king was presented with a side arm from the fallen leader of one of his subdued enemy kingdoms, which he hung above his fireplace as a reminder of what a great a powerful leader he was, while he had the enemy leader hung from the gallows.

And no one in this great and powerful country held the king accountable for his tyrannical deeds, because the citizens of his country had their own lives to lead and couldn't be concerned about tortured folks in other countries. After all, that is what a remote control is for...to see what you want to see!

What the people of the most powerful kingdom on earth didn't see, were new enemies in the horizon, that rose from the ashes of the conquered states and these enemies, were united! It was only a matter of time.

Moral: Calis disregard for others feelings and well being, will find the self-focused person in his enemies shoes.
