: I don't know, honestly I just think Thel wants this shit to end. he found
: that for years, literal YEARS, his brothers and even his own family fell
: to the humans on the hope of a lie by worm people they distrusted to begin
: with and threw them away the second they had the confidence to. not only
: that but finding out that them, the covenant, shoved first and the human
: race was just defending itself.

: At this point I'd be tired of fighting, tired of trying to prove our worth to
: everything we see as a rival or threat. the human race wouldn't dare fuck
: with the elites and vice versa, we bothed proved our worths in battle and
: show how much of a threat they can be to eachother and its pretty damn
: equal even if the human race are the gifted chosen ones to hold the
: mantle.

: Theres bigger issues then trying to win the "Alien master race of the
: universe" award right now. insurrectionist of both races have formed
: again, insane forerunner commanders are coming out of nowhere and trying
: to destroy us all, and the alien zombies arn't 100% wiped out yet. I'd
: rather try to deal with the issues of my own planet and make peace with
: the people who gave birth to the green suited guy who kicked all of our
: asses and doesn't afraid of anything.

: Sorry if I'm not as wordy right now, I'm running on 4 hours sleep. :\

"There is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare."

Little sleep hours aside, it does make sense. Even with the Sangheili being a warrior race, a 20+ year long war with a scorched earth policy has done nothing but drain resources on the Elites, and now that the Covenant has broken violently, thing are as bad for their race, and this has been reported since the tale The Return (which I hope they follow up to), in which the Sangheili are running out of ships and weapons, faced in a hopeless attrition war. The Prophets ultimately began a civil war between the brutes and the elites, and now that they as heads of state are gone, all factions are divided after a too prolonged war...

Going to war NOW would be enormously counter-productive for all sides. Things went real bad, and both have enormous problems at home to care about what the others are doing. Hell, in Halo 3, both the Arbiter and Rtas 'Vadum initially just wanted to go home, before Kilo-5 changed things.

The Arbiter seems to consider John a friend of his, and respects him a lot. But if he were to learn what had been going on for some time, even he would be forced to take drastic measures for the safety of his race.
