    Almost There was always a profound difference in S Africa between the way the Brits treated brown people, compared to the Boers. It's to be seen in H Rider Haggard, of all people. The Brit attitude was condescending - &...

    Let's see Summary execution, corpse mutilation, and population displacement during the Malayan Emergency. Population-displace I'd known of, not the rest. Torture and castration of prisoners during the Mau Mau Uprising. The former, yes, not the latter. ( yuck ) Torture...

    I was talking about now, not 100 years ago, when things were not only different, but worse. IMHO the Brit guvmint's worst mistake was the time they decided to use a Milita - it was such a disaster, both actually...

    No That appears to be a fundamental differenc between the uS & the UK Remember where the future George VI was in WWI? Or even Prince Andrew ( whatever his many other faults ) during the Falklands?...

    Which makes Putin so much better, doesn't it? /Snark @ 204 Really? That bad? I hope not, though Saudi certainly IS that bad - see Yemen & the protests - much muted at present/so far, here. The US have a...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    Sorrry, very plausible, very often put forward, but not buying it. Put forward much more often these days, as an excuse to show how horrible the US-allies were, without considering things like the aforementioned rape of Nanking & countless other...

    On a maybe-related subject, which may be sensitive ... Da'esh An ideology virtually-indistinguishable from Nazism, with the fanaticism of the kamikaze (?) There was a play-producer on R4 this AM, talking about "no military solution is possible" & "we have...

    The US and the UKpublic wanted it to be OVER. Not on hold. No slowed down. But just flat out over. YES My father told me, when I asked him about both VE & VJ days that his one emotion...

    The Establishment always think they can control the guy who's going to take care of those pesky peasants for them. Yeah, well, Adolf is the classic examplle of this isn't he? Quite few of the people who supp[orted him as...

    So, is the Dump running it himself? Or are there people (or lizards) we simply can't see running the show? This is getting far too like the Laundry for comfort. What was it Charlie said a year or two back,...

    I sincerely hope you are correct. yet, ISTM that TrumpBannon are trying to overthrow the US as we know it - even if they are "only" trying to revert to the gilded Age, post Grant's presidency. OTOH, wasn't it Kurt...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    A modified repeat from another thread, concerning DT/Bannon's tactics: Trump & many of his people inherently believe that all “gummint” is bad, so they are doing their best to remove or sideline it, no matter what the consequences. And this...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    Remember, the same people who voted for Obama twice, voted for Trump. REALLY? I think not. I think a lot of Obama-voters abstained from voting for Hilary & a lot of rednecks who didn't vote against Obama came ot this...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    The other counterexample is, of course, since you mention Syria - Russia. Putin stamps VERY HARD on all protest, even if (particulalrly if? ) non-violent, coupled, of course with selective assasination murders...

    Meanwhile, Texas has passed a law saying that women nust get separate "health insurance" for abortions, even if victims of rape or incest - how nice. Link: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-texas-abortion-idUSKCN1AV2F4...

    1) No, because of your obfuscation & bullshit, I got it exactly backwards - which would not have happened if you had spoken CLEARLY. 2) Yes, I am. It usually helps clear thinking & I'm quite aware of the "issues"...

    Ignorant & trolling. At the end of the 3rd Punic war, ancient Carthage was completely sacked & its entire surviving population sold off into slavery. Leptis Magna was a small Punic town, taken over by the Romans in that war...
