ignoring the Phoenix" or "ally with Tamori and attack the Phoenix". Both
sucked. There was no choice to "Make Peace with the Phoenix, Slay Tamori,
and Have a Party (like the end of a Rodney Dangerfield movie)". I believe

In other words, by attacking Tamori, we wouldn't kill him, and we wouldn't
be on the Phoenix side--we'd be slaughtered without resisting. Which is a
very noble, Satyagraha-style Dragon maneuver, a la Kikage Zumi Mass
Slaughter at Volturnum. But Hoshi cares enough about the survival of the
clan that we should too. Being killed by Shiba Akira (KANEKAAAAAAA!) is not
a survival plan.
