Stop asking for a ninja when you actually want a samurai

From the various appropriate entries on Wikipedia about ninja and samurai (emphasis mine)

A ninja or shinobi was a covert agent or mercenary. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination
The shinobi proper, a specially trained group of spies and mercenaries
Samurai were the military nobility
Samurai felt that the path of the warrior was one of honor, emphasizing duty to one's master, and loyalty unto death

Now which one do you really want working for you?
