Laconia (Greek: Λακωνία), also known as Lacedaemonia, is one of the regional units of Greece. It is part of the region of Peloponnese. It is situated in the southeastern part of the Peloponnese peninsula. Its administrative capital is Sparta. The word "laconic" is derived from the name of the region by analogy—to speak in a concise way, as the Spartans were reputed by the Athenians to do.

Laconia is to Sparta as Attica is to Athens. We call a city-state by the name of the capital city.

Spelling inconsistencies. My mistake.
Both are correct, Lakonia and Laconia.

Sparta or Lacedaemon was a prominent city-state in ancient Greece, situated on the banks of the Eurotas River in Laconia, in south-eastern Peloponnese.

You swine. You vulgar little maggot. Don't you know that you are pathetic? You worthless bag of filth. As we say in Texas, I'll bet you couldn't pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel. You are a canker. A sore that won't go away. I would rather kiss a lawyer than be seen with you.

You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing you exist. I despise everything about you. You are a bloody nardless newbie twit protohominid chromosomally aberrant caricature of a coprophagic cloacal parasitic pond scum and I wish you would go away.

You're a putrescence mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon.

You are a bleating fool, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world. An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done.

I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell?

If you aren't an idiot, you made a world-class effort at simulating one. Try to edit your writing of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it more rapidly.

The reason he didn't invade was because by that time Sparta was actually rather weakened and far from its height. Fighting them would be a big waste for no gain.

Once Macedonians unified entire Greece but Sparta and Alexander started his conquests in the east Spartans decided to try to take Crete from Alexander.

Alexander sent one of his armies (he had over 20 at the time), and his general Antipater. Macedonian army crushed the Spartans and Sparta was forced to join Alexander's League of Corinth, basically submitting to Alexander.

Spartans were not some unstoppable force that made Phillip shake in his boots. Phillip was simply too busy taking all of the rich, coastal city states and unifying Greece to bother with a poor, politically weak but very defensive Sparta.

Only 30 years before Phillip started to unite Greece under Macedonian power Sparta was dominating Greece with its Spartan Hegemony. they kept entire nation of other Greeks as their Helots (serf/slaves) and had a powerful navy.
Epaminondas from Thebes managed to turn Thebes into a powerful nation and fought Spartans, shattering their superior army at Battle of Leuctra. That followed several invasions in Spartan lands and their allies, and freeing the Messian helots, which crushed Spartan economy.
By the time Philip came into power Sparta was no longer a great power, they had few allies, few small ports and were a poor and fairly small nation.
They still had a powerful army, so fighting them would be tough, since they also lived in very defensible terrain. So why fight someone that even once you win, you get nothing of value and it costs you a lot.

Antipater destroyed Spartans in battle of Megalopolis, killing their king Agis. Spartans asked Alexander for mercy and he granted it for 150 talents of silver and them joining his League of Corinth.

I think this post was more about how every time anyone told the Spartans **** about them surrendering the Spartans always had some witty "Hey, suck my dick cause I'm a Spartan and that means I'm a bad ass" kinda reply.

Xerxes tells them, "My arrows will blot out the sun!" Leonidas replies, "Then we will fight in the shade."

Not always.
When Antipater dragged a body of their king to Sparta and told them to either join the League of Corinth or Alexander will deal with Sparta permanently, Spartan response was pretty much "So, where do we sign?"
Earlier then that when Epaminondas brought Theban armies to invade Sparta and shattered them at Battle of Leuctra, Spartan response to him sending them the message of "I'm coming to end your hegemony." was to write to Athens and beg Athenians to not join Thebans and to try to stop Epaminondas from crushing them.

Well technically the battle of Plataea was the height of Spartan importance. That was where Spartans led united Greeks against Persians and ended the war.
But yes, Peloponesian war was the shining moment for Spartans. They declined pretty fast after it.

Well, I kinda don't like their idea. In their idea only those that die in a victorious battle go to good afterlife. It makes soldiers too suicidal.
I hold to "Soldier's job isn't to die for his country, its to make the other bugger die for his."
But if we spread it to more then just fighting, then yes, I believe its better to die doing something worthwile then simply wait for death in some retirement home.

i like how you see it. i never really looked that deep into it. i mostly just had the thought process, "i don't want to die of old age. i want to die in brutal combat, fighting for something i believe in." but you elaborate a bit more. may i use that?

Although from the examples you've shown, its less them being bad asses and more being sane "well, these guys would be able to over power us if they joined the other side... so hey guys, how about you don't join up with our enemies? Pretty please?"

No, but usually you can get around 5-8 different accounts on the same event, usually by historians from different city states that were not very friendly to each other. Then you check them against each other and the events that are repeated consistently are almost certainly true.
We can't know the truth full truth and nothing but the truth, but major events we can know with high degree of certainty.

You can't prove what person next to you is thinking, let alone someone who died 2500 years ago.
Quotes can be proved with high fidelity by following resources. If ten different historians got the same quote from ten different sources then its almost certain person said it.
Opinions can be extrapolated from how people act.
For example, I can't be sure about Virginian republican's opinion on immigration, but since they just elected a guy based on his anti reform platform, I can say with high certainty that it is not positive.

No, that's why different sources come.
If source comes from Bobus and only Bobus, then its suspect. But if Bobus, Jackus, Jimus and Samus all claim they heard exactly the same thing from the same man, then its pretty safe to say that it happened.

I have, Philip united all of Greece including Sparta.

But to be fair the content only mentions the Spartan reply to Philip's threats. Not what Philip did or said after that or wether or not he was afraid of them.

What the people below said, but sometimes that can get ******. Alexander of Macedon, when on his travels, hired the best of the best to record everything and anything. One of them, I think, was the nephew of Aristotle, who also tutored Alexander as a boy.
Alexander told them what to write, and it would often involve exaggerating numbers or feats. The Battle of Granicus, for example, when Alexander first bitchslapped the Persians, it was written that Macedon had only a fraction of the soldiers that it is now believed they had, making the victory seem better.

The Spartans of the time period were all bark no bite: they had such a massive boner about how they were slaughtered at Thermopylae over 100 years ago that they couldn't think straight let alone fight to their full potential.
I'm not saying that they weren't brave at Thermopylae, but they still got slaughtered
