So ? That's what victory is all about - beating your opponent. You can't get more partisan than that, can you ? As for "rubbing the other side's nose in it than recording an event for posterity", so what ? History is written by the victors. Recording the event goes like this:=
"My Red Indian ancestors were killed by whites." That's history recording an event.
"My white ancestors killed Red Indians." That is also history recording the same event. Which one you sympathise with will reflect your partisanship.
And before anyone starts any PC nonsense, changing "Red Indians" to "Native Americans" and "Whites" to "Caucasians" does not bring any dead people back to life.
