Ignorance is bliss-teringly bad idea sometimes?

    Empty threat, and the stribs know it. If they could stop the fleeing Tesfay et alia, they would. No need to broadcast that fact.

    And if they pursue Tesfay across the Galaxy, they’re going to come to the notice of other peoples who likely already have a representative or two to the Galaxy Governing Body. Which means they’ll blow their anonymity everywhere and things will get sticky for them.

    Now they’re going for annoyance through threats of terrorism. That’s not just despicable, it’s cowardly, and tells me more about the limitations of the stribs than they would like known. I’d like to see how they behave in a fair fight. I’d bet they’ll pull out every dirty trick they know to stay out of one, not just win it, and that’s a weakness that can be exploited.

    Put the stribs on the streets of my hometown, and the Coney Oneys will have them for lunch. They know this sort of combat inside out. Get some, stribs.

      @Pete Rogan : Your comment reminded me of one of the scenes in my very favorite movie, even above “Star Wars”. I refer to Casablanca.

      Major Strasser is at Nick’s club, talking with Nick (Humphrey Bogart) about the German’s advance across the world:

      Major Strasser:
      Are you one of those people who cannot imagine the Germans in their beloved Paris?

      It’s not particularly my beloved Paris.

      Can you imagine us in London?

      When you get there, ask me!

      Captain Renault:
      Hmmh! Diplomatist!

      Major Strasser:
      How about New York?

      Well there are certain sections of New York, Major, that I wouldn’t advise you to try to invade.
