In the year 1519, Spanish Conquistador Hernan Cortes arrived with his army in the New World to take on the great and powerful Aztec Empire.  To illustrate to his men the importance of victory he ordered the ships they arrived on to be burned, leaving them two options: victory or death.  No retreat.  YHC stands before the Pax of The Post much like Cortes in 1519.  I too have burned the boats and will leave no option for retreat.
