You remember the ancient story about the Trojan Horse, when the Greeks had laid siege to the city of Troy for ten years without conquering it. Finally they devised a brilliant plan: they built a huge wooden horse, hollow inside, and offered it to the Trojans as a peace offering. They told the Trojans that they were giving up and going home, and that this horse was to be a symbol of peace between the two peoples. But hiding inside the horse were dozens of well-armed Greek soldiers, waiting to come out.
