 Speaking of the Lamanites in general, the text does say that "they were angry with the people of Limhi" (Mosiah 20:6). Further, the Lamanite king admits that "in my anger I did cause my people to come up to war" (Mosiah 20:15). But there is nothing to suggest that the warlike response did not conform to established custom or law. See Barre, "Treaties," 6:655, who maintains that "In suzerain-vassal treaties, this [effort to punish] often took the form of a punitive campaign by the suzerain against the transgressor."
