The Empire is cowardly, end of story.

Any government that lets a foreign power torture and murder its citizens has failed as a government. No excuses, no exceptions. The Stormcloaks may be dumb barbarians, but at least they don't bend their knees to a bunch of frail, pompous elves.

This argument is still going, damn, and I feel like it wasn't months upon months since I last waded through the trenches.

Right because fighting a losing battle rather than temporarily conceding certain things while consolidating power is obviously a smart move in a war.

You are aware that the Aldmeri Dominion was in JUST as bad a position as the Empire come time of the signing, right?

....right?

Not true, the Empire was losing the war.. they were losing entire parts of their empire.. Skyrim may seem like a big deal but if you look at all the territory that the Empire lost you'll realize it was just another piece of a much larger issue.

It's entirely true lmfao. The empire had cut into Aldmeri power just as much. Couldn't hold what they'd taken.

To put it simply, the Dominion was a "false" giant. They looked tough, but their losses in Hammerfell and the battle of the red ring proved they didn't have the power people thought they did. Sure, the empire suffered, but the thalmor were in no condition whatsoever to pursue victory.

And they didn't KNOW the Dominion was just as bad. remember, the AD just anhilliated their ENTIRE intelligence network as the war started, their knowledge was effectively zero. and by the time they did realize it, the AD had recovered enough to make the empire wary of trying to force the issue without enough intelligence and superiority

If Mede was smart he would've attacked the Dominion after they pulled out of Hammerfell. Not only was the Thalmor's army weakened, but the Empire had five years to regain its strength. Yet Mede chose to allow the Dominion to lick their wounds.

whoops, basic math fail.
