The crux of the matter is this: I was trying to illustrate Solka's intent of colony-building by simple colonization as opposed to other methods. I further believe that you completely understand this, so... are you just trying to point up that the U.S. is guilty of what had been the U.K.'s stock-in-trade? I'm fully willing to admit that, but I think that it's misplaced in this discussion.
