  1. I call this episode bullshit because i know for a fact that Alexander horse wasn't killed in this battle. Do your homework homeboy and stop spreading your lies and slightly rewrite history according to your wish.

  2. It worth mentioning here that the king murdered Cleitus later in the campaign over a wine-quarrel. They were both cocked Alexander drew sword and the big star of this episode the man who saved the king and the campaign was no more. He also killed Parmenion the man who put him on the throne.

  3. The U.S., too, engages in widespread wars and, at the same time, lowers taxes. That saps our nation of its wealth by reducing resources available for domestic needs. Our infrastructure has become third world. Our people suffer from lack of affordable housing, medical care, from poor educational resources, and environmental destruction, and the loss of manufacturing employment. Meanwhile, the warring continues, but in contrast to Alexander, we send home from abroad little in spoils to offset our costs and support our country. We send home no slaves, but we become, effectively, the slaves of our warlike rulers. No, what rewards our rulers are the expenditures on armaments paid for by printing and borrowing money. The rulers produce the arms and receive the payments for them. The Macedonians were loyal to their country, but the rulers of the U.S. have no loyalty except to themselves. Our generals, unlike Alexander, have not won a victory since the end of WW2, but they have been even more reckless than Alexander at Granicus.
