I am not 100% convinced.  Depends on the potential danger, especially 
strength of fast units of the enemy.  If enemy only has Horsemen, then 
Pikemen is a perfect guard.  The final dash to the city will have to be 
made by diplo alone.

One way to model it is to run path-finding to the city for diplo alone and 
for the bodyguard.  And see whose route comes out more dangerous.
