In my current game I'm sucking up to Portugal because Maria is a babe founded the world congress. I've been peacful the whole game, and carefully managing a group of allied nations to the point where every-time I denounce someone from outside the group, everyone follows. I decided to get a mutual defense pact with a bunch of people within this group cause... why not. Assyria had been out there with the barbarians fighting for scraps of garbage I suppose they like to call cities for the first several ages. Recently, I noticed they hadn't been at war in a long time. So I was like, "Hey Assyria, cool library dude, maybe you're not so bad after all, why don't you join our little league of amazing countries". "Sure dude; cool elephants BTW." So that was that. Sure enough, the rest of my minions friends immediately befriended him. He was ONE OF US. then being the jerk he is he went to war with Portugal a couple turns later, dragging me in to the thing. "Time to trample this barbarian upstart" I think. I go to the diplomacy screen to get everyone behind me and... "You've declared war on leader's you've made a declaration of friendship with!" My spotless reputation is ruined and I've been kicked out of my own damned tree-house, what the hell is up with this is this a bug?
