: I heard a very weird phrase today.
: "Choke their rivers with our dead".
: It had a retribution undertone. Anyone heard of this one?

Nope. But I can recall some grisly stories of war (in Africa perhaps) where multitudes of people were killed and their bodies thrown in the river. The eyewitnesses told of seeing their family members in the water.
