The following comment was received from Luis, a learner of English in the USA:
Albeit, the term "abandon" has an honourable history as synonym for Rome's 5th-century retreat from BritainFunny how the site says that in 1782 "Britain abandons its American colonies." Should read, Brits were sent a packin' with fannies to match their coats.
