    In your mind
    Interesting -so the Persians could get away with a sort of surprise blitzkrieg that takes not only Mesopotamia but also the Roman province of Syria, placing the great naval port of Alexandria at risk, which could impel the Romans to either move to or create a new naval base at what is now a sleepy fishing village at the mouth of the Bosporus even after the Persians are pushed back. Certainly much more defensible and less exposed to any future Persian invasion once all is said and done.

    They really haven't shown us why we should take that seriously.
