Listen Without Prejudice.

Given enough time, everything decays into rage. It courses through the veins, thicker than blood. It burns brighter than most fires you and I have known. It lives. 

Burning out is a gift, a blown fuse being the final line of defense before the carnage. The limit of human capacity for enduring pain protects not itself, but the source. 

But there are those who don't burn out. Those misguided into striving for invincibility, can only come burning and blazing, or not come at all. They forget how to half-live, they know not how to half-love. Run enough pain through them, and they become live wires; obliterating everything they touch, knowing neither peace nor loss. The current, it's possible, would never stop.

Wow, that is quite an observation. It's what the Sith rely on. I do think though that you don't need to burn out to come out at the other end, you might even come out in victory, though by then you will have destroyed plenty in your wake and might have started fearing peace.

If you keep at it long enough, the only victories that qualify are the Pyrrhic ones.

Now the moment you say victories as opposed to victory you are absolutely right. This can't be a way of life, but I think you need only that one big victory. I guess that is about being choosy in letting stuff get to you.

I do believe that there are some things on which a even a Pyrrhic victory beats defeat and burning out would be way too disorienting.

Moab and Edom were subsequently conquered when the Nco-Assyrian Empire, one of the most powerful empires in the history of the world, and which controlled Mesopotamia for more than 320 years, Air Jordan Shoes,expanded into what is now Jordan. The Ammonites, however, managed to resist the advances of the Neo-Assyrians and retained independence for a while, but its position was challenged when the whole region attracted the attention of the Babylonians from Iraq.

A period of furious battles ensued between these arch rivals, the Neo-Assyrians and the Babylonians, which were later joined by allied forces the Medes, Scythians and Susianians from Iran. The culmination of the battles was that the Babylonians took control of much of what had become known as the Levant region, or Holy Land, Cheap Jordan Shoes, comprising most of the territory of present-day Israel, Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon. The power of the Transjordanian kingdoms diminished sharply as a result. Babylonian power was short-lived, however, lhe mighty force of the Persian Empire, keen to expand its territory, advanced on the region and both the Babylonian and Neo-Assyrian empires came under its control as separate provinces.

Persian rule brought a period of calm to the region, but it was a period not without problems. Because of the empires vast size, records suggest that central control was often difficult and the kings authority was undermined. The empire included countries in Asia and the Middle Hast, Turkey, Macedonia, parts of Egypt and as far east as Libya. jordan releases, There were frequent localised periods of unrest that had the effect of weakening the empire, a fact that didn't go unnoticed by the king of Macedonia, Alexander the Great (b356BC, d323Bc), a member of the ancient Greek royal Argead Dynasty.
