Through mistreatment and oppression. From a monarchy they still cherish, so not going to happen. They are also mad they are now followers of the nation they once tried to suppress.

5 days ago, it was the 200th anniversary for the burning down of the White house.

I like that.

Wow this was redundant in is many ways, you could have only stated the historical fact  and not your opinion on the cause.

I don't know about you but the Americans I know get a real trigger itch when some tart starts talking about how he is happy that the white house burned and that our military history is dull and pathetic.

 

Well, your History is dull compared to ours. That's not an opinion.

We've had more wars as you've had Presidents.

I love comments like this. They are so poorly thought out, and seem to forget it was a World War. Argentina? Produced the nitrates required for fertilisers and bombs.

 

Honestly, that argument is stupid. Germany did not want the British Empire to fall, as they view us as the worlds' peacekeeper.

 

Also, in WWI, you guys just took our stuff and did nothing about it, other than claim victor status. Germany surrendered due to the British blockade of their ports, starving the country.

Germany didn't want Britain to fall? Are you for real?! Germany wanted peace?! What the actual #### are you dreaming about right now?

Also, you have to remember this, this is a multinational community.

In the same timeframe, we had the Napoleonic war and the Seven years wars (You know, those major wars that affected how the world is today?). Chances are, other countries are going to remember their heroes and fallen.

 

Also, American history is dull and short. We have thousands of years of warfare to salivate over. You guys have a petty 400 or so years.

 

600+ years of knowledge on warfare and still got handed. LOL!!

Yes, seriously. They did not want all the hassle in controlling half of the world directly.

Look at what happened with the French. They put a government loyal to Germany in charge, and allow them to govern the colonies. The exact same thing would have happened to Britain.

 

We would have probably been better off than most of the USSR, to be perfectly honest.

We were too busy fighting real wars. It was actually American troops on both sides for the most part.

 

History is a weird thing, omitting certain details like that.

Not an insult, he states they have 100 years and we are only around 400, so why could they not use 600+ years to gain an advantage??

 

They learned nothing and did as the Romans, and reached TOO far TOO fast. Not insulting just stating the fact.

We slowly dismantled our empire both willingly and at times forcably, whereas America gradually turned into the very thing they fought so much against.

it WAS and inslut and it was VERY low of you. we are not perfect either, you know what war does? it boosts economy. so you know what we, the great amercans, do when our economy is low? we start wars. we arent exactly the greatest country either.

I'm sorry. I had no idea that the British empire ceased to exist. It's not like the sun never sets on British soil or anything even now.

Over 1000. At least 2000 years of warfare. Like the rest of Europe.

Also, you can thank American influence for the constant depressions that crippled our empire in the 30's and 50's.

About 200 years, actually. Funny that.

The french took the brunt of the british navy, without them, we would have gotten crushed. Plus we got lucky, a lot, in fact. Do you have any idea how easy something as mixing up one lamp and two lamps is?

Probably about 200-300 years, as it was not long after 1066 that we started attacking Europe again and then there were the Crusades which showed the global power we had.
