Is it considered bad sportsmanship to start shooting the citizens of a country without warning them first? It seems a bit silly to declare war if you don't have to - you lose the element of surprise.
If I wanted to have a war with the Isle of Wight, I'd go there with my soldiers and, when nobody expected it, just start shooting. I'd only tell them afterwards that it was a war.
But maybe, if you don't decalre it first, it doesn't count and you'd have to fight another?
Sorry, I'm new to the human race and just trying to understand your ways. How do I get comments on my shirts? Should I comment on other people's?
