I don't know how anything in my post can lead someone to believe that we in Nulli think we are "toughing this thing out alone." My post was about people apparently starting to give Test credit for accomplishing something "on their own." I would argue that their ability to do very well on their own in an offensive sovereignty war against us is doubtful and certainly unproven. I am totally aware that we are not fighting PL + Test on our own. We have our own close allies in Hun Reloaded, Veracruz and the Pangu Coalition. And in the last week -- after nearly 2 months of fighting I would add (by Shadoo's posted reckoning) -- AAA has joined the theater. But we are not the ones who have ALWAYS taken the field in this conflict under someone else's FCs and supported by perhaps the greatest superpower (in terms of supers) in the game. And I don't have a problem with Test doing that, I just don't think they should be given a great deal of credit for it and be spoken about as though they are growing up and accomplishing something significant on their own.
