^^I don't even know what you think this debate is about anymore. You're spiralling down into your own world of technicalities that don't have anything to do with what I thought we were talking about.

I was honestly thinking the same thing, especially since I had considered the matter of wew's initial statement long since closed when I pointed out that a representative of a foreign government present to observe another government is usually called an ambassador. I really didn't have the slightest clue what your point was in bringing that issue back up unless it was to point out that unequal and oppressive relationships can exist within a real-world federation. But surely we can all agree that the UFP would not engage in oppressive, unequal practices such as the US has engaged in.
