There's something which I can't stop wondering, when {-vaD} is being used
this way..

Lets take the sentence {tera'vo' Qo'noSvaD taj vIngeH}, and lets assume
that by {Qo'noS} I mean the "people of kronos".

When we read it as "from earth (for the benefit of) the people of kronos",
then can't it mean too something like:

"I send it from earth, to someone unspecified, but for the benefit of the
people of kronos" ?

Why do the people of kronos *have* to be the recipient ?

Can't I be sending the knife, lets say to the alien ambassador, of the
species which threatens to invade kronos, so that he will cancel their
imminent invasion ?
