Phillip and Alexander didn't "avoid" Sparta; it just wasn't worth conquering, they didn't give a **** about Sparta when the real prize was Persia.

Also "During Alexander's campaigns in the east, the Spartan king, Agis III sent a force to Crete in 333 BC with the aim of securing the island for Sparta.[26] Agis next took command of allied Greek forces against Macedon, gaining early successes, before laying siege to Megalopolis in 331 BC. A large Macedonian army under general Antipater marched to its relief and defeated the Spartan-led force in a pitched battle.[27] More than 5,300 of the Spartans and their allies were killed in battle, and 3,500 of Antipater's troops.[28] Agis, now wounded and unable to stand, ordered his men to leave him behind to face the advancing Macedonian army so that he could buy them time to retreat. On his knees, the Spartan king slew several enemy soldiers before being finally killed by a javelin.[29] Alexander was merciful, and he only forced the Spartans to join the League of Corinth, which they had previously refused to join.[30]"

******** ... Don't trust wikipedia when its about Macedonian history , bcuz they don't have history,they just stole Bulgarian , Thracians and Slavs, and most of their history is lies and myths. They claim even Alexander is Macedonian even all the facts are against them.

This isn't a paper for school, and you are the only one who decided to go and actually look up any sort of valid information. For that +1

During the Second World War a Nazi diplomat tried to play hardball with the Swiss. The Conversation went something along the lines of this:
Nazi: You have a standing army of only five thousand, how would you stop us if we were to invade.
Swiss Badass: You see every member of our population is trained how to fight. In a day we can mobilise two hundred and fifty thousand soldiers.
Nazi: But we have Five hundred thousand, what would you do then?
Swiss Badass: We would fire twice.

He is stating the first word of the message, "if" as in you can enslave us IF you can beat us. They were so confident that they sent back a snarky remark

Laconic wit. Extremely dry humor. Spartan's were famous for it. The whole the Persians have so many archers that their arrows shall block out the sun, Good we'll fight in the shade then. Is an example of laconic wit.

Apologies. I just hate how almost everyone believes that hero should start with "an". Try saying it out loud. It just doesn't work.

Yeah, instead of attacking a city, Alexander decided to go and conquer one of the largest and most powerful empires in the world...

Greeks barely made statues of Ares because they believed that the statues would become alive and slaughter people in a bloodlust, and the very few statues that were made were held down with chains and kept in walled areas.
Spartans put that **** into open areas with civilians.

Spartans thought to themselves "getting ****** up by Ares would be a pretty sweet way to die. And, you never know, I might just kick his ass."
