Spooky Vlad's Dungeon

See the thing that made Vlad so spooky was Sultan Murad. It was the forced conversion from the Catholic Faith to Islam and the witness of the utter brutality of the Ottomans that lead Vlad to such extremes as he fought in the crusade against the Ottomans.

For if one is to defeat such murderous brutality once must be willing to take it to a whole nother level.

During an outdoor festival of St. Bartholomew at Sibiu, Dracula had 20,000 citizens arrested and spiked in one afternoon. Claiming that they were either treacherous bourgeoisie, or supporters of that element, he had them - men, women and infants - impaled on the outskirts of a neighboring forest. As was his custom, he had his servants draw up a solitary dining table of fine food and wine so that he might enjoy his lunch by watching the tortures at close range. He occasionally had a servant dip his bread in the blood of the dying souls so that he could savor the taste of life. (Is it a wonder that Stoker was inspired?)

It was at this function that he espied one of his knights holding his nose at the repugnant smell of death permeating the air. When he asked the soldier if he was making fun of the situation, the fellow stammered, "No, my lord, my stomach churns, but -" and he quickly added, "I am not of the stout heart that my prince be."

"But, why would I want in my service a man who cannot look at death without regurgitating? Death is a soldier's livelihood!" And with that, he called to his bodyguards to impale the feeble fellow. "Let him join these others, but because he had been loyal until today, hoist him higher than the rest that he does not have to smell his company!"

1 The vicious and petty mean never realize their efforts to subdue the meek may just create a monster more vicious and vengeful than they are.
Who here would blink if the whole of Islamo fascism were to destroy itself in a nuclear fire?
Who here would rejoice?
Who among us would simply not care?

2 Vlad was a sworn and deadly enemy of the Turks. He dealt with them in the only currency they understood. His lands were free from the Ottomans as long as he lived.

We should take a lesson from Vlad...

3 If we had a general as strong and determined as Vlad, Glorious Leader would have him gelded one way or another.
