Bobo, that's not "loose translation", that's bullshit. "Acquaintance" is a synonym of "friend". "Friend" is a synonym of "intimate". "Intimate" is a synonym of "lover". Therefore, Bobo, you and I are lovers. Is this the logic you wish to pursue?
Unjustified: Not proven or shown to be just, right, or reasonable. Unnecessary: Not of an inevitable nature; Avoidable.
We took the right action in leaving Britain; the point is that we would not have needed to had the British acquiesced.
Loose translation for bullshit? And you are of the belief that we needed not of fought the Revolutionary War? The very war that freed us from tyranny? If you call the war unnecessary, you are causing it unjustified as well, since it would lack justification if it were unnecessary in the first place.
Jesus, Bobo, do you think I'm stupid? I will not call the war itself unnecessary without explaining why. The war ended up being a necessary war, as we did have to leave Britain in order to pursue freedom. The point is, had Britain acceeded to our demands, the whole thing might have never happened. It's an exploration of alternate history, not a criticism of the war's occurence. I hope this clears up any muddled areas.
A thread wouldn't be complete without some insane patriotism, methinks.
prove me wrong then
