The Wolves and the Sheep

Said the Wolves to the Sheep: "Why should there always be war between us? and how is it no truce or flags go from us to you? it is all along of these wretched dogs who bark at us the moment we come near you, and stir us up when we had no thought of harming you. Only get rid of them, and we can have peace." The Sheep believed the Wolves, and sent the dogs off, but as soon as they were left unprotected the Wolves ate them up.

If you listen to your enemy you will get yourself into danger.
