Umm, no, _not_ the Brits. When we went to war, we did it in uniform, and
were a hunky-dory fully paid up Sovereign State. That's called 'War'. 

Washington and his terrorist bunch did not wear uniform (they had this
scurrilous new-fangled idea of camouflage, so I'm told, and even dressed
like peasants), and were not a lawful government or lawful government
agency. That's 'Terrorism'. <g>
