    Orcs = Spartans

    Basically after recently watching 300 and playing wow for a few years I realised how spartans and orcs have a similar society.

    First of all both are warrior nation/people who train from when they are young to be warriors.

    Second of all both hold honor above all else.

    They also go against the oposition even if they know they have no chance of winning. Victory or death for both people.

    But where are the Spartans today , yes thats right their society is dead.

    Why because only a fool never retreats!
    He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

    Just because buildings exist, doesnt mean the original society remains.

    Actually, the Spartans would retreat if they could gain a tactical advantage, they just wouldn't call it retreating. Though it is true they would never run from a battle.

    In reality, the Spartans were a small part of a force of thousands of Greeks at Thermopylae. When the Persians were shown the route round their flank, many thousands of the other Greeks fled. The reason the 300 Spartans (with about 700 Thespians, and 400 Thebans which just don't appear in the movie...) stayed behind was to prevent the fast moving Persian Army from chasing down the other fleeing Greeks. They held the Persians long enough to let the others escape.

    Off topic fun fact: The 300 Spartans were homosexual ;]

    The Roman culture is dead.
    The Mongol culture is dead.
    The British colonial empire is gone.
    Doesn't mean they weren't successful.
