    So you're basically saying that every single invading force in history was morally right to do so because they were stronger? :/

    okay, well don't complain if we ever get invaded by anyone
    "You integrate, assimilate be and treat the natives good.

    I get it. Mount Sinjar is vital but to who?
    I've already answered the question on the other thread.

    I'm sorry but our conversation has to end here. I don't mean to be provocative but I don't think you're very bright (at least as far as this subject goes) and you're suffering from the Dunning-Kruger effect, which makes any discussion with you something akin to pigeon chess.

    I have answered a number of questions to which you don't know the answer (like the ISIL estimated casualties... about 150 in Sinjar iirc, 20 at the cement factory on the road to Ibrat Ash and 15 at Baaj), but you keep posing questions that for whatever reason you believe will somehow discredit what I've said.

    I can see you're desperately struggling and flailing around to find something, but you really need to get over the fact that you were wrong about the Kurds coming over Mount Sinjar and not from the West. Come to accept that sometimes, other people are more knowledgeable than you.

    Good night

    I don't get it.

    You seem to be fascinated, and one could say, obsessed (one could also say paranoid) awith the state of people's minds.

    I guess worrying about the minds of other people may perhaps lead you to lose control of your own mind so you feel the need to analyse others, in order to maintain your own sanity.

    Now I know why you were able to relate to that Japanese man in the other thread.


    But as you say, let's leave it there.

    Good Night!

    When in history does an invading force from their own country treat the natives good? Most times they are simply looking to expand their empire and culture, thereby destroying the native culture and taking their land, their homes and their government away from them.

    Don't tell me I missed anything out, when you're the one missing things.

    Does an empire persist where there is wanton destruction or where the invading forces come, intermingle and live with the locals?

    I'm not talking about imperialism or colonialism, but integration. The co-existence of two groups without any borders between them.

    This went from "all invading forces in history were morally right" to this specific scenario.... -_-

    Stop putting this tough-guy attitude on and communicate your point clearly because you're failing to do so.

    I have put my point across clearly. It is you who have taken my points and added something alien to them and then tried to attribute it back to me.

    I shall repeat: If an invading army vanquishes their enemy, and integrates and assimilates into the culture of the vanquished natives, so as to treat them like how they would like to be treated or better, then I see absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    Well that is almost never the case, as I explained.
