mel, you obviously do not follow the news...the british are still in afghan! when they promised that they would leave after a certain period of time! and im watching yup....its cnn.....and yup there still in iraq too!
these are obviously the most recent of our times.
i keep up to date with Afghan - i have missed the bit where they said what the time period is that they will definitely leave. Please enlighten me, thanks.
I think there is no time limit, as u suggest.
The British will probably have to be driven out of Afganistan.
Why would they break their habit, of out wearing their welcome?
This is turning into a nationalistic, prejudice conversation. It seems ironic that you are blaming the British for alot of the problems of the world, and are making sweeping generalisations about the colonists who did the very same things as you are about other cultures!
The problem is as old as time. The human inability to have a fair power system. It is a human fault not one of any country. For exaple, the Nazis who killed millions upon millions of people in the 1940s are no different to any other type of people. It was simply the prevailing conditions of the time which allowed these circumstances to arise.
Nowadays Britain is modern democracy no different that any other European nation. So stop living in the past!
I think this thread has run it's course after being live for about 3 years. It's gone far off topic and actually isn't related to travel anymore at all. I'm taking the unusual step of closing. If you can't contain yourself, there are other threads along the same lines elsewhere in the forums to post in
