Sorry

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: Another scenario for the Romans

Submitted by B. Williame (Belgium), May 5, 2008 at 04:07

Sorry, but the battles you mention haven't happened to my past knowledge, though I do confess that I would be in need of more profound research on the Western side to attempt to find any thing that talks about this. I know about Carthegian wars, the Pyrrus wars. and in both cases it wasn't always a victory for the romans, but it ended with a victory for them. why, if there were wars against middle easterners I wasn't taught about them? I wonder. But that it needs some spitting out, is true.

That each time it was an exactly 3 vs 1 situation, does seem wierd as well such coincidence? Might be overexaggeration of the story tellers? I do not know and until I'm able to find info from the other side about it I'll just accept it to be partially true.

I hope you understand this.
