Since interest has rapidly waned, I'll tell you that the gentleman in question is:
Marcus Porcius Cato (234-149 BC), quaestor, aedile, praetor, and finally consul of Rome.
Also known as Cato the Elder and Cato the Censor, and sometimes as Cato the uptight grumpy frustrated puritanical bastard with a huge chip on his shoulder.
His middle name is indeed Porcius, which translates roughly as Piggy, and which was a respectable name back then. Yep, Mark Piggy Cato. No wonder he was grumpy.

"...Also, I think Carthage should be destroyed." --Cato the Elder, who after visiting the city made it a habit to end all his speeches to the Senate with this phrase.

That's a close paraphrase of something in the cookie file. It's one of my favorites.

I think it was a bit of a den of hedonism, maybe like Las Vegas or New Orleans.

From wiki: Hiero's intervention had placed Carthage's military forces directly across the narrow channel of water that separated Sicily from Italy. Moreover, the presence of the Carthaginian fleet gave them effective control over this channel, the Strait of Messina, and demonstrated a clear and present danger to nearby Rome and her interests.

As a result, the Roman Assembly, although reluctant to ally with a band of mercenaries, sent an expeditionary force to return control of Messana to the Mamertines.

The Roman attack on the Carthaginian forces at Messana triggered the first of the Punic Wars. Over the course of the next century, these three major conflicts between Rome and Carthage would determine the course of Western civilization. The wars included a Carthaginian invasion led by Hannibal, which nearly prevented the rise of the Roman Empire.

Shortly after the First Punic War, Carthage faced a major mercenary revolt which changed the internal political landscape of Carthage (bringing the Barcid family to prominence), and affected Carthage's international standing, as Rome used the events of the war to base a claim by which it seized Sardinia and Corsica.
A hundred years of conflict with the rival regional power. The den of hedonism thing was one of the justifications for wreaking utter destruction upon a defeated enemy, destruction designed primarily to ensure that they were never going to be an enemy again.

I thought the rationale was that Carthage had WMD. Bacomundo!
