    Oh dear... Sorry if I distracted you! But I'm sure you'll be fine. Two days is an okay amount of time to pull it together.
    I actually find the Scramble for Africa quite interesting really. It's better than a lot of essays I've had to do. But you're right, it is quite a massive topic so there's a lot of reading. Luckily, there's been loads of fairly easy to understand stuff written about it.
    I wish you the best of luck

    whats with all these faggy "peacekeeping missions" like Iraq and Afghanistan and now libya. **** that, the Romans didnt just go somewhere to help out and keep barbarians from slaughtering everyone, they made it theirs and conquered it, now if libya and iraq are too retarded to run a country then we should go in full force, and make it British build a proper infrastructure with the same system as the mainland uk and rename it to something better. Look at south africa, it was a great place to live after we colonised it and built an infrastructure, now the ANC are in control of it and its going to hell.
    Secretly the British Government has an interest to "conquer" in Libya. I suppose one reason why Britain and the USA took so long debating a no-fly zone would be that they were waiting for the oil deals to be put into place. After 2 weeks Obama decided to act, and now that Libya's airforce has been take out there is nothing to stop the Western powers taking Libya's oil.

    The UK'll be booted out of the UN, NATO, etc. have sanctions placed upon them for breach of human rights and other general invasion atrocities... Mass exodus of people disgruntled by the country, internal struggles and further breach of human rights. If the invasion gets seriously out of hand, a coalition force WILL TOTALLY OWN the British Army and perhaps invade the UK... (look at the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and then think about what happened in 2003)

    And oh yeah, nukes'll be involved and perhaps the extinction of humanity...

    Basically, RIP Britain...

    (There's a reason why the UN exists you know... as a form of government that deals with the well-being humanity as a whole...)

    I find it ironic that the video in your sig is by a band that hates war.

    Imperialism and colonialism, that is so last century, literally. Totally outdated bro
    Yeah Now we just install dictators to do it for us whilst selling us their natural resources.

    Much cheaper for us.

    I'm speaking about the people who went and conquered lands far beyond Rome. Eventually you will meet a stronger force and be destroyed. I doubt the people of Rome today go around conquering foreign areas.

    Imperialism had it's plus sides and it's negatives sides. However it's an outdated concept, the world has moved far beyond the concept of benevolent imperialism. Even if African and Asian countries are hilariously brilliant at screwing themselves up, we've got to respect their right to self determination and allow them to choose how to run thier nations. Even if in 90% of the cases they couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery.

    sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt.

    for example, america was colonised, it sought independence and got it and it flourished a generation.

    many african countries that were part of the empire were given independence and now look at them, look at india and pakistan, huge levels of poverty and a bottle of tequila away from full out nuclear war.

    the british empire put down the slave trade, brought law, order and democracy to two thirds of the globe through the blood of british boys and all we got in return was a bunch of hate from a load of ungrateful *******s.
