Ancient history (sort of) repeats itself

THEN: Xenophon with Cyrus
While a young man, Xenophon participated in the expedition led by Cyrus the Younger against his older brother, the emperor Artaxerxes II of Persia, in 401 BC.
NOW: Xenophon against Cyrus
Senator Nick Xenophon launched a scathing attack on Scientology, citing letters from former followers alleging extensive criminal activity. Scientology spokesman Cyrus Brooks said the senator's attack had been an abuse of parliamentary proceedings.
One expects the battles to be no less bloody, though.
