Liu Yue’s quiet words immediately shocked Ye Lu Ji and the others.
As a city person, although she had provided great service and was appointed as Righteous King, that was a title in name only. It was just an empty position, what would she know about the situation between Bei Mu and the Huns? They were just being polite when they asked for her opinion, but she actually had an opinion to say.
“Tell us about it.” Ye Lu Ji looked towards Liu Yue. The people inside the tent also all slowly turned towards Liu Yue.
Seeing this, Liu Yue let go of Ye Lu Hong’s hands and stood up, sweeping a glance to the few people in the tent who was obviously not interested in her opinion at all.
She slowly said, “Since I have earned the position of the King’s sister, I’d like to think in the interest of my brother. I don’t wish for his efforts to go to waste.”
She didn’t allow anyone to interrupt her as she immediately pointed at the map. “Yesterday, I have also read through the current situation of the Bei Mu and Huns.
The Qian Li Mu Yuan that you were talking about lies at the southwest borders of our Bei Mu Kingdom. The land is rich and fertile, hence more than one million Huns are living there.
There are 13 bases nearby Qian Li Mu Yuan City. It is one of the most prosperous cities in the Kingdom of Hun, and it supports almost one-third of the Huns’ revenue each year, feeding almost 1.3 million of its population.
These two points are definitely good, but how many of our Bei Mu troops do you guys think we should send out in order to suppress the two million Hun citizens? How many should we send in order to ensure that they would not have any chance to retaliate, and made us suffer a double loss instead?”
Although her voice was calm and indifferent, the impact from her words was loud. Liu Yue finished her sentence and looked towards the people inside the tent slowly.
The tent was completely silent. Ye Lu Ji and Empress Dowager Xiao who obviously were not interested in Liu Yue’s opinion at all just now looked towards each other and frowned.
“What you said makes sense.” The black-faced Ku Za Mu scratched his head.
This indeed made some sense, but they were not able to say what actually makes sense. As generals, their job were to fight wars and take the opportunity when it comes, they are not very good in terms of tactics.
“Go on.” Ye Lu Ji rubbed his lower chin as he furrowed his brows.
They were too excited from capturing the King of Huns before, and was only thinking about getting the highest price, until they forgot this point. They only realized it after being reminded by Liu Yue.
