> What do you mean «I won»? You were the one who suggested the subject quite a while ago. I don't want to discuss it, it is futile. Because you are talking about things that happened during different times. The times when the attitudes were different, more cruel — not just in Britain, but everywhere in the world. France had colonies, even Portugal had colonies. The reason you have it in for Britain is because it had the most successful Empire known to men and has still preserved a lot of its influence. A tiny island managed to become a lot more influential than your huge piece of land, which you made wasteful. You had a go at creating your Empires (Russian Empire, then the SU) and never succeeded. And the reason you have it in for the States is because it is the most successful country in the world nowadays — whether you like it or not. It is jealousy and envy. These two disgusting awful feelings is what your propaganda appeals to in your people, where it draws its support from. It is just plain wrong. And the parallel with the successful figure skaters and their coach was drawn correctly — it is the same — just on a different scale and in a different field — but the same — jealousy. It is just that set of haters are busy hating more successful athletes, you Russians are busy hating more successful countries. > I am not going to discuss Ireland, because quite frankly — it brings up some painful memories from my first marriage and very lengthy and messy divorce, so it is just in bad taste on your behalf to carry on throwing that Irish twitter account in my face. Give it a rest mate, honestly.
> What I can say to you about «the crimes of Britain» is that the elites in those days didn't treat anyone well, the rich treated the poor badly — not just in Britain, but everywhere. And by the way, are you familiar with Charles Dickens? Maybe you should read some of his stuff. Particularly about child labour in England, when children from poorer families were sent to work on coal mines, because adult men couldn't do it — if an adult man went to work there and died, the family would lose the main bread winner. So the coal mines were full of English kids, some of whom were the same age as my Daniel (8 year olds) — working there and dying daily. And that was during the height of wealth of the Empire, think about it. This is how Mother's Day appeared. On a spring weekend, those kids went home so see their moms and they gathered daffodils in the fields for their moms not knowing whether they would come back the next weekend and see their moms ever again, cause by the next weekend they could be dead. > So why would the British elite have treated some Indians differently? > All you Russians, zombied by your stupid propaganda are capable of doing is unpicking historical faults of others whilst living in a less developed, less civilized and much poorer country. That is what pathetic and envious people usually do. quoted1
You won because you forced me to discuss this. God knows I wasn't in the mood to raise this subject.
To begin with it's not only about events of the distant past. Your country invaded Iraq, broke their system, but didn't build anything instead. Do you know that many of the ISIS leaders are former Saddam's officers? It was their chance to survive so they used it.
Years passed, Blair said it was a mistake, Hillary said it was a mistake. And than you do the same shit in Libya. You invade, break their system and the vacuum was filled with ISIS. Again, anybody agrees it was a mistake.
In a few years you try to do the same in Syria. I've spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out what is your plan for Syria. And I found nothing. «Assad must go» nothing more.
Are your officials so stupid or they are just trying to destabilise Middle East completely?
