Yeah, and your asses being kicked


But, nonetheless, with money and numbers the Boer War was "won"

There is that old conspiracy that Britain runs the US and considering past history it would not surprise me one bit.

Wrong. Try looking up who first introduced The Concentration Camp. It was in fact The Spanish:-

Eh you all keep arguing semantics and petty nonsense. Let's just get down to the bread and butter shall we? If we were to square off.. the brits wouldn't make it very far
that's all that matters right? The alpha male? Without any help, there are few major nations the brits can take on alone.

Britain didn't think that America was that important to keep as a colony at the time of the American Revolution. The "Jewel" in the British Empire was always India. The British had to commit troops to fight in India between 1774-1784 and made that it's priority.



Priority to do what over in India?

To ''Colonize' or 'be adventurous' or was that just more of their "colorful past'........

Middle English colo(u)r, from Anglo-Norman colur, from Old French colour, color, from Latin color, from Old Latin colos "covering", from Proto-Indo-European *kel- ("to cover, conceal"). Akin to Latin cēlō (“I hide, conceal”). Displaced Middle English blee (“color”), from Old English blēo. More at blee.


I prefer the Latin spelling not French


Pfffft slay, french is a latin language

There priority was very much to Colonize. Such as it was with America where you now live and take advantage of.doing so. Or am i wrong? You are after all a product of British Colonialism are you not

True true but the point he was making is that it's not how the "English" spell the word which is actually Old French

Yes.

That really depends on which State of the union you're talking about. Some are loosely based on the French {Louisiana} and others on Spain {Florida, California. etc } with thousands of Cities and towns with Dutch, German, French and Spanish etc origins and names.

It isn't so cut and dry...

That's right. The crown wasn't just going to roll over and give it to us.



And yea, colonising - out with the old and in with the new.



The Spanish had a big enough pair to call it what it was...

Conquistadors

Just a quick note to say your response put the emphasis on "win" instead of "Independence".

And does not fully satisfy me


Although I appreciate you might find that irrelevant.

Let's see 13 colonies and 37 States later including the Louisiana purchase from France which doubled the country and the purchase of the entire West Coast from Spain I'd say much has changed since 1776

And there's me thinking that John Wayne was long gone. You are the biggest and strongest and 'that's all that matters, right ' ?
Wrong, on so many levels.

Take a look at the list of your Founding Fathers at the bottom of the page:-

en.wikipedia.org...

I would say that made you a product of The British Empire would it not?

You mention the purchase of land from Spain and France. Would that be COLONIAL Spain and France lol

In fact you are wrong about the whole of the west coast being non-British. Britain gave you Oregon

en.wikipedia.org...

You really should know more about your own countries history

Who was Britain named after ? Answer: Brutus of Troy
reply to post by Rapha
 


No it wasn't, that's an urban myth.

Not a history buff, but I can't remember an "invasion" of Italy by the British other than during the Second World War.

What kind of paint thinner were they sniffing when they decided to create Israel? Good job there lads. Mossad are a right lovely bunch to be proud off. 9/11 and all that.

The days of Empire are long gone and we will never know if we'd stayed at home what the world would be like now.

Our lasting legacy is the English language which encompasses many phrases and words from across the whole world and without which the internet would be a very difficult place to navigate.

Answer: Brutus of Troy who trekked across much of Europe after being banished from Italy.

So maybe its in our blood to journey to new lands.

And lets not forget the Saxons (vikings) who also left their bloodlines amongst the British locals and took great risks of adventuring across rough seas into unknown lands.


actually britain is an anglicization of "Prydain" the old welsh gaelic name for wales.
the norman version of this name is Breton.

it was never after brutus... thats a myth.
