Today Greece is a province of the IMF aka. world wide usury. If they had any balls they would have done an Iceland and told the bankers where to insert their debt. But I guess Greek courage was also expended in the Peloponnesian War.

That reads like the last paragraph of the S&T article: the conflict effectively destroyed the Greek world politically. Within a hundred years they began their 2 millennia of being a province of someone else's empire.

Isn't it the case, historically, that later in the war Sparta allied with Persia. That sort of does it in for Sparta, as far as any moral claim goes. Sparta may have won the war, but the Glory of Greece was destroyed.
