British are so arrogant and they talk down to us blah blah .Americans and British are birds of a feather.


If I referred to Indian people (or Argentinians, for that matter) in those terms I would be called prejudiced, bigoted and racist. And rightly so.

Time to broaden your perspective on life?

I say we settle this on the pitch.

Whomever wins and/or ranks higher in the FIFA World Cup wins the international argument.

Swiss referees, American cheerleaders.

Who's with me?

Arithmetic is not your strong point. Britain effectively conquered India at the Battle of Plassey in1757.

The world population in 1750 was only 791 million. The world population in 1900 was 1,650 million.

World Population

Yet somehow the British managed to squeeze in the murder of 1.8 billlion people? :


By the way, 2.5 million Indians served in the British armed forces in WWII. All were volunteers.

India in World War II

What did the Romans ever do for us?

Add Polo and Chess and make it 2 out of 3!

This dispute tears me up as I have visited both countries many times and love them both but for entirely different reasons.

Thats the same mentality the British had towards the Scots, the Irish, the Chinese, the Indians, the Americans, the Argentines, the list goes on. I mean if your mental state says your entitled to the world, then it all belongs to you doesnt it? Just for a fact, the British have oppressed the world, killed more people and killed more people than any other country. So who really is civilized now?

As an Indian, some amount of hatred naturally comes in my blood for the british.All the wealth they have isn't of their own and you have to look at their natural resources to confirm that.
They destroyed my country and killed lacs of innocent people for hundreds of years.
In my mind, Britishers are the greatest murderers of all times and you have to look at the African and Asian countries to see their horrific works.
While people in these countries starve and die of poverty, they feel smug with our money and further ridicule us as third world countries.
Learn your history and you will know who you are.
I wonder if britishers are too ashamed of reading their history as there was an article in the daily mail about decreasing number of history students in your country.



I've been to your country. Maybe you should sort out your caste system first? It's a Hindu thing right? Hindu's were around a lot longer than before us British ever made an appearance. Millions of people in poverty, whilst your higher castes live in palaces and trample over the 'untouchables'.

Endless wars with muslims / hindu's / sikh's and other religions who all wanted a part of Delhi?

But yes, blame the British.
What do you know about caste system???
Are you sure it doesn't exist in your present day society??
India wasn't poor when in your view religions were fighting among themselves.
Read history.She was called 'bird of gold'.
Please read history, everyone didn't want a piece of Delhi.Are you serious??
Who gave you right to enslave another country. I see you were Christians who believe in ten commandents.
It is not only my personal blame, read history, the entire history is a burden on your shoulders and countries around the world are proof of your work.

Yet, as empires go, the British empire was easily one of the most benevolent in world history.

Perhaps you can tell me where and when the British killed all of these people?

Please include data beyond natural disasters, please. Details and links.

By the way, what does the British Empire have to do with Argentina wanting to seize the Falklands for the recently discovered oil?

in a period of 200 years,the mass murder of the indian population was performed .considering that every year 5-10 million indians would die due to british policies of starvation,economic strangulation and outright genocide is it a surprise?

In the revolt of Meerut by Mangal Pandey British mass murdered 30 to 100 million to crush the rebellion.Sadly ,British schools only teach lies about the indians and others you exploited and your divide and conquer policies and you blame the victim which is typical of western psychopaths.

Indian history books give estimates of 150-250 million but then comprehensive research of primary data and statistical database suggests its much higher.


After Queen Victoria came to the throne the world suffered horrendous mass murder at the hands of the British during her long rule from 1837-1901. Under Queen Victoria the 1845-1850 Irish famine resulted in 1 million dead from starvation (while food was being exported from Ireland) and 1.5 million Irish fled overseas, many perishing from destitution in transit or on arrival. Similar privations occurred in Scotland with attendant massive emigration of displaced Scots in the Scottish Clearances. Brutal British rule in India was associated with Indian cholera epidemics (25 million victims) and famines (scores of millions of victims). An estimated 500 million Indians died avoidably from deprivation under the merciless rule of Queen Victoria.

every country the British Empire went into, they sought to build infrastructure and improve the economy of the nation. Have you never heard the saying "the biritsh empire civilized half of the world". You'd still be fighting over who owned your local swamp if it wasn't for Britain sharing its railway building skills and other fundemental resources.

No i won't call you racist or anything if you call me brown,poor or anything else.
Because it is a fact that i am brown,i am poorer than you and everything else.
What is to be ashamed about???
These words and dogmas are created by you people who once murdered and slaved people on those bases.
Now you are trying to take the moral high ground by saying everyone is equal.
It is just swinging from one extreme to another.
'eveyone is equal' is a wishful statement.
We should learn to acknowledge the differences.
Do you really treat everyone equal???
No, you just jump on the moral horse with majority of people on certain issues.
Otherwise you are continuously trying to differentiate yourself from the 'crowd'.

Yeah the one western country that stood up to Hitler and defeated him definately supported him right? And Argentina wasn't the country the Nazi escapees flooded to after the war was it?

The irony in your statement is without boundries

That's the problem with you people.
Have you ever read history books rather than listening to tales from your parents and media???
What civilization are talking about??? When did you had any civilization???
Regarding infrastructure, are sure we needed knowledge of infrastructure from you???
All you ever built were residences and ways to take our money and resources to take you to your country.
Read the history books my friend rather than fairy tales....

India wouldn't have a railway if it wasn't for Britiain. Proof is that it hasn't been upgraded since we left.
