He's ok at heart , a bit conflicted for some reason, just wants teachers to teach the negative side of British history as that's all there is ...

What gangster portrayal? Honestly what youíve got is a problem with me saying Britain has gone to war and people have died for little to no cause and based on little to false evidence. Itís not an entire country itís the leaders that made those choices...as you clearly stated in an earlier post. Itís quite clear youíre extremely patriotic and take any negative comments about British conduct as a personal attack on you and your country and in turn it to some extreme misinterpretation, I.e. Ďanti British gangster portrayalí when all I merely stated was that democracy that has been installed in the Middle East (and other places) isnít actually that democratic due to the people that have been in power. And that itís a reason terrorist attacks occur in this country. Both facts.

Itís a British territory so they went to get it back. Plain and simple. Not for democractic reasons. To reclaim what was taken.

I know all the reasons behind why Britain hasnít gone to install democracy in those countries. But it proves my point that you are saying it is Britainís place in the world to install democracy where there isnít democracy. Yet you clearly know itís not that simple is it and itís about doing it where suits them best, mainly for financial or positional reasons. Because if you truly had the simplistic view that ĎBritain is great and we must spread democracy to places that havenít got ití then there would be nothing stopping them spreading it everywhere.

Again, why do you feel that Britain is the worlds police and saviour? Is it your patriotism or is there another reason behind it? Itís a genuine question, one which you eluded already a number of times.

There you go again with your anti British gangster portrayal again. It's a British overseas territory ffs. What's your problem? Read and learn, empty vessels and all that...

1-The UAE and Jordan are and have always been allies in the region. Bigger fish to fry elsewhere but we keep chipping away.
2-Cuba is Uncle Sam's neck of the woods an ally of ours. That'll take care of itself shortly.
3-Saudi and Qatar have had the world by the plums for decades with oil. The long term view was they were handy allies. As you'll know both have problems with Wahhabi extremists helping fund and destabilize the middle east. MBS is dealing with this(locking sympathetic donors up in hotels etc) alongside a modernisation program. They are also very handy regards intelligence and dealing with ISIS recently. Which is why they're being cut some slack. Also being deadly enemies of the Shia works for us. Again one for the long haul.
4-China, North Korea and Vietnam. You really need me for that? You'd have to be pretty stupid to not understand why we wouldn't go to war unless as a last resort. The pressure for human rights, getting them involved in world monetary systems and building a coalition of democracies against them is the way. Like the 50 years it took to defeat the Soviet Union. That's what's happening but a smart lad like you would already know that.

For it to remain a British sovereign state is what you mean. If it had been a non-sovereign state and Argentina took it over would we have gone? Answer is no. Nout to do with democracy, everything to do with keeping British influence overseas. Democracy being a by-product of that. Simple enough for even your tiny mind to understand.

Again, wonít answer the questions because youíve got no answers for them because you know Iím right

Would we have gone if the population didn't want to remain a British overseas territory? No is the answer. Democracy allows the population to decide who governs them. They democratically on several occasions have rejected changing the status quo.
So for dummies: To allow the population of the Falklands to democratically decide their future we had to kick the undemocratic military junta out. Simple even for you.

Are you blind? #743 I put them very simply to you You really are stupid.

Reclaim the islands as British. The purpose of going there. Not to export democracy like you stated before. If it was to reinstate democracy solely then that would concede the islands are Argentinian and the entirety of Argentina would have been invaded. But it wasnít. Your spin is worse than the MSM

Weíve got a balanced society already - the extreme left balancing out the extreme right.

A more moderate one might be nice

Went to reinstate democracy in the islands.
You're flapping around in turmoil so much I've no idea which one of your daft questions and in what context you'd like an answer

A people's right to choose who governs them is not part of democracy then? Dear oh dear. Do you think the people of The Falklands would have been given that right to choose under an Argentinian military junta

Like you've said you fail to see alot. The rest will follow eventually or we'll follow them, it's inevitable. That's the long game of ideologies....

Balanced society sounds good to me. I think we have to look at where we are though too. I believe we are a long way ahead of the USA where all this stemmed from. They have a massive, what I would call crisis to deal with, there simply are not enough jobs for starters to give everybody the American dream
