What great or noble work could we ourselves have achieved had we thought it enough, living at ease in MACEDON, merely to guard our homes, accepting no burden beyond checking the encroachment of the Thracians on our borders, or the Illyrians and Triballians, or perhaps such GREEKS as might prove a MENACE to our comfort ?

With all that accomplished, why do you hesitate to extend the POWER OF MACEDON--yourpower--to the Hyphasis and the tribes on the other side ?

Gentlemen of MACEDON, and you, my friends and allies (Greeks), this must not be. Stand firm; for well you know that hardship and danger are the price of glory, and that sweet is the savour of a life of courage and of deathless renown beyond the grave.

Words like "for the Freedom and Glory of Greece" were used only as a motivator for the coward Greeks to fight.

Alexander used the Greeks as the U.S. uses it's allies to assist in fighting it's battles under the "flag of freedom".
