Imagine performing, still knowing subconsciously you were on rails leading to death. Slow oppression of an ethnicity hated maybe because their ethnicity has a tradition to look to?

+Rob England why not? Religion is manmade, it's a control measure. Get rid of it.
The Quran is a complete manual on how to radicalise people.
Sharia law is extreme therefor those who want it or demand it are extremists.

'Cultural cleansing'

Actor Ben Jones played Cooter in the 1980s hit TV show The Dukes of Hazzard. He says having the show taken down by Viacom amounts to 'cultural cleansing'. The reason, he believes, is the use of the Confederate flag on the show's iconic red car.

So the Dukes Of Hazard gets banned from all TV channels, the Confederate flag gets wiped off the face of the earth. What do we ban/eliminate after the next mass murder?

"Footnotes in history"

More than one million Indian soldiers served in World War One. But writer and politician Shashi Tharoor says history has mostly forgotten these sacrifices, which were rewarded with broken promises of Indian independence from Britain.

#India #WW1 #colonialism
Only now are the sacrifices made by thousands of Indians who lost their lives in WW1 beginning to be remembered, writes Shashi Tharoor.

+John Lomax​ If only it were that simplistic. Try reading the article properly & without such obvious bias. They were professional soldiers & like all soldiers they weren't allowed a vote on where they were sent or who they were paid to fight. Your smears could be applied to many countries & their treatment of their armed forces.

This john lomax is the result of an obscene rush to create a United States of Euroland ..the purpose of which I would be grateful if you could tell me ( but you cant ) . It is not about a trading bloc . So what is it? ....At least maybe it has stopped the expansion for a while by a bunch of self serving incompetent politicians , professional beurocrats , and lazy expense account robbers . We have plenty already of those tossers . We dont need another tier. . Most people who think it is a great idea are out of the same mould . Limp wristed airheads who are demanding that europe share out millions of these so called asylum seekers among the many members .. Da you must be prepared to do has you are tolt .
