‘From the Middle of Mouth’ (Part 8th) by Zaib Azkaar Hussain

Intriguers talk about integrations and those sabotaging the peace speak on peace. Their word, they assume, is the key word to control the toys and objects of this universe.

Let them live in a state of frenzy, for universe is not moving in accordance with their will…Never mind, they appear to be self-centered and self- assertive sets of individuals.

This state of mind eventually becomes a hallucinated one. They would die in a harness with the same hallucinated state of mind. They will be running here and there unless they reach around the deepest well…that can also be quagmire.. They talk on deterioration of education, ill health and useless wealth..they take steps on promotion of peace. They work for the louder and speak for the silent.

They hold with the hares and hunt with the hounds. They run with the running hares and stay with the crazy hunters. They have thought their own a deterrent view of punishment.

This view is the order of the day. They have an illusion to cause a deterrent effect on the masses and missiles of this globe for the betterment of the worst people…

I must say Xenophon would not serve a noble cause by forming mercenary armies. I don’t consider him to be a philosopher who served humanity as had done his teacher Socrates.

He was only an Athenian military leader who devised cruel methods ‘flanking maneuvers and feints’. Nothing was placed on record that he had ever issued a warning to avoid such methods to save humanity as was issued after centuries by Einstein about his discovery of making bombs to destroy the enemies of collaborated forces.

At least he expressed his displeasure over using his formula for destruction purposes. However, time had passed and no one could save and protect the armless populations of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

What was it to commend Xenophon by Theodore Ayrault Dodge who was described as another military historian that no one could come close to the genius of a warrior Xenophon who had great expertise in launching logistical operations. The adventures of a clever commander against millions of weak people were commended and considered as great deeds. Let Roman statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero praise him for his artistic skills. Who would say Cicero a philosopher… Cicero had been a statesman and not a philosopher…
