Of course you do.

But that's what KGT says, and there's a reason for it to say it. I quote
again, in case you over-read it:

"From the Klingon point of view, {Suvchu'} ("fight perfectly") is "fight
to the death." (KGT, p. 49)

> This is the language of the Klingons,

This moves back to the arguing of "Klingons would not say that", so I'd
prefer to stay out of this kind of discussion.
