re: OU Spencer Jones, messed w/the wrong dude...
Spartans were bad men. That's very cool stuff.

If I had to guess I'd lean this way...

quote:

Another version was that in a nation state where every warrior is a valuable resource, allowing your elite warriors to maim or kill each other (killing your opponent was classified as a win) in the arena was not a good use of your resources.


But that's just an unverifiable opinion. Just makes sense from a cultural standpoint imo.

Yep. It's the vast majority.

Spartans however, excelled in pankrateion techniques, and during the battle of Thermopylae, were forced to resort to this hand-to-hand style of combat when their weapons were shattered as they fought against wave after wave of Persian assaults.



There have historically been some bad-azz nations when it comes to war and the psychological aspect of war. The Assyrians were just such war-like people.


Assyrian kings prided themselves on their military conquests and often recorded their victories in writing (on tablets, clay cylinders, and obelisks). They also told stories of their conquests in pictorial reliefs that lined their palace walls.

Archaeologists have uncovered many of these Assyrian records recounting victories and plunder. They have found chilling information about the way Assyrians tortured their captives, including:

- flaying (cutting skin into strips and pulling it off a living victim) Making lamps out of the remains and lighting up the night sky.

- beheading

- impaling (inserting a sharpened stake beneath the rib cage of a living victim, putting the stake into the ground so it stood erect, and leaving the victim until the stake pierced a vital organ causing the victim to die)

- burning people (especially babies and children) alive

- severing hands, feet, noses, ears, tongues, and testicles

- gouging out eyes.


Turns out, a lot of time, all folks had to know was that the Assyrians were on their way and they would give up without a fight. What we casually refer to today as psychological warfare.

I agree, Bamameister. Everyone back then was brutal. Interesting facts. Thanks.
