It is foretold! The torrential flow of inexorable destiny!
.Justice in mine and many other countrys is based on ‘innocent until proven guilty’....that is the reason they are still alive.-
You have been tortured and generally abused simply by having been kept in detention for no more reason than the fact that you were there at the time.— JustinofOz
It is time America. Your enemies have been nicer than such friends .- Cricket
Ah! so now the ills of the world are now the fault of the English. I prefer in this instance to use the term UK....
And thanks to our EMPIRE that you decry, we brought education, health and democracy to a large part of the globe that otherwise would still be in the dark-ages.-
Anyway, after your lovely attack on England, cricket, here are a few American mistakes -Phoenix Rising-
, you taught America how to treat the Indians...and slavery...ha...again...you taught us well ,- Cricket
Again, America ended it herself. No help from the crown...after all, we were part of England then
A quotation from my writing:
When I went to the UAE, in 2002, and met one American lecturer there, who had migrated to the US, from the East Europe, and I had a brief talk with him on the subject matter that I am writing, he in reference to the British, lifted his leg as if
in a pose of kicking and said We booted them.
With deep apologies to Cricket, may I continue?
In the last ten years or so America has changed in character much. And a lot of funny claims can come up; even East European, West Europeans, Chinese, Pakistanis, South Americans, Indians, Koreans, the Middle-east persons etc. who have domiciled there can get highly passionate about the ‘British injustice to their nation, America’.
But the fact remains that US is just a geographic expansion of the English spirit. And designed by men, who were just English in all but their antipathy for the English King.
Even though, the Americans tried to put on a shallow show of being different from Britain, like changing the traffic lane of the road from the left to right, what runs through the American spirit is just English as a social program. This comes out when one compares the difference between US and England, with that which exists even inside many nations, among the people.
my sister served there, and her views were that it was a godforsaken country, that had been ruled by oppression and fear,- tartan terror
Has anyone noticed that Afghanistan has an essential common factor with the Banana republics of South America? Both did not suffer or can we say, have the benefit of British colonialism.
A lot of interesting points have been raised in this thread, much more than in many other threads. Each quotation I have taken out could really invite a lot of words.
Yet, Cricket doubtlessly loves England.
I look forward to the day when Britain will again rule the waves. Only, the next time, let it be the stars!
I live here now, but it is with longing, I sense, and hear, and see Americans talk of England and the Queen as if they long for England to continue being the guide.-
