You can’t just take over a nation, that’s not the natural order of things, I hear the same views were sprouted from the Hitler household.



If that would occur then that’s what would’ve occured, Britain has no right to trample over and ‘help them’.
difference in fundemental opinion i guess - though Hitler did admire the British 'civilisation' of India by a 'superior race' - would argue that this state of war and technological advancement has persisted throughout history to create many of the nation states we know today and something not only the Empire is guilty of or should feel sorry for...

Of course, how else do we have countries.

But conquering the already conquered? That is not right, unless of course you’re the Allies and you’re taking back what the Axis took.

When people stop putting the milk in first, that’s when.

Lolol Pak and India will both stick nukes up Britain's *** 😀😀😀
Pakistan is a terror haven, acting like a cancer, meaning they cannot develop their economy, now on their 13th bailout - sorry were you talking about the UK?
Fully support India's actions, and Israel's against the prevention of terror (the undivided state of the Jewish people )

The history of virtually every nation on Earth is predicated on the subjugation of one tribe by another - that is and has always been the natural order of things. This is why France is no longer called Francia, Roman Gaul, Gallia Celtica, etc; it's why the Kingdom of Hawaii no longer exists; why the Iroquois Confederacy no longer exists; why the Ptolemaic Kingdom no longer exists, and why the UK is called the UK instead of the Kingdom of England/Scotland, the 7 Kingdoms, Provincia Britannia, Britannia, etc.

Yes I realise the contradiction, thank you for making me aware.

I still do not think doing so is ethical, you don’t see countries doing that today do you, and I think it should stay that way.

I think It might be time we take the Raj back under our wing, decolonization was the greatest mistake we ever made (Especially in Non Anglosphere countries)

I still do not think doing so is particularly ethical, but hey, this is the world we live in.
It's refreshing to see someone come to their senses instead of arguing in an attempt to save face - you're welcome.

Regarding your second point, do you believe that empires differ ethically? And, if so, do you believe that it is ethical for a more moral empire to replace less moral empire's rule in a nation?

Not a problem, I understand your pain.

I believe different countries have different ethical standards, which does often mean one nation being arguably more ethical than the other in some instances more than others, I believe in the greater good, if a nation does not respect the basic ethical standards every country is responsible to adhere to and causes harm in the process, as is seen most often nowadays and in the past, then I see fit to replace, in the sight of the greater good being the main objective that is, of course one cannot ignore the collateral damage that is inevitably going to occur, but as I said, the greater good.

That is how the world has always worked. Stronger nations take over weaker ones and tend to form new nations.

That doesn’t mean you can just do that again in the modern world.

But it's never worked. Britain had to leave it's vast empire and now only controls a small island (I.e. UK).

The only thing that works is if a true faith binds the empire together, hence the Islamic Caliphate lasted for 1400 years engulfing one third of the world

All other empires were flimsy so they lasted only short time.

Look how USA invaded Iraq, got 5000 of it soldiers killed but still had to leave it behind. Invading and occupying for a lengthy period of time doesn't work any more for even superpowers

Maybe Pakistan could bomb the same area but with more bombs, then boast about that to save face rather starting WW3.
