There was no nice way to gain independence from the British. Governments pay attention to nothing except power, "Macht," and they only do so when they lose the war. There is no nice way to kill people. In some cases, the end does justify the means. We would not be here if we were nice guys during the Revolutionary War. Our money would have the queen printed on it also, and we would now be Britain's "Groom of the Stool."
