You have yet to refute the bald fact that Britain , a globally extensive power in 1914 , by declaring war on Germany, a minor colonial power, extended a purely local European power struggle worldwide.

This was not any unintended consequence but an entirely foreseeable escalation for which Britain must bear the bulk of the historical blame.

The Field Marshal's Hun heroes couldn't take their beating - and so came back under Hitler for more punishment.... :D(y)

While Nazi sneaking regarders, Ireland, hid behind Britain's coat tails...... :sick:

The British Jews got the monopolisation of the diamond industry out of it, after Germany lost it lost Namibia's diamonds to the British Empire.

Incredibly interesting history of the trade here, from Oppenheimer to Israel taking over the diamond industry in the 70s. All throughout they needed monopoly, only monopoly allows fixing the price and controlling the supply. It also explains how 'blood diamonds (and the Hollywood movie)' was propaganda designed to stem the flow of diamonds from West Africa which would affect the price.

In 1911 the British and French gave a green light to Italy to invade Libya. This was a clear indication that Britain no longer would defend the Ottoman empire. The Balkan wars followed not long after.

I don’t have Hun heroes.
Your protestant Brit heroes in 1914 escalated a local European war into a global world war and dragged thousands of duped Irish thickos into helping them.
It’s no coincidence either that many of these Irish came from the protestant Anglo ascendancy usurpers.

Your truly foul British Empire is now thankfully gone, eaten away by the ugly protestant termites who ran it.
Destroyed in stupid and avoidable wars against another protestant country Germany.

If anybody wants to see the true Heart of Darkness that lies at the centre of early 20th century Europe look no further than the vile protestant leadership of Britain and Germany in 1914.

Two snarling protestant hyenas competing for power.
Those dogs were at it again in 1939.
The British dog is now thankfully silenced with its tail well between its legs but the German one still howls every now and then.

The Nazis weren't 'Protestant'.

They weren't anything - but vile war criminals.

Thanks, Mr. Churchill, for defeating them. 🇬🇧

Britain handed Germany a can of whuppass in both World Wars.

I know that leaves the Brit-hating Oirish extremely butthurt - but it's undeniable, nevertheless. (y)

Without US help in WW1 Britain would have lost.
Without US help in WW2 Britain would not only have lost but would now have a German govt.
In 1914 Britain had the worlds largest empire.
After both world wars in the 1960s Britain had lost its empire entirely and the USA had gained dominance.
Germany has surged forward economically whilst Britain languishes in a sea of Brexit uncertainty and woeful leadership.

So yes, technically Britain beat Germany in both world wars but it was a hollow Pyrhic like victory and the outcome now on points out of ten for
Britain is only four but Germany easily gets a seven.

Crowing about British-war victories doesn’t really cut it anymore in today’s Europe.
