Different degrees of anything may be subjective or objective opinion. But a difference it is. A comparison. It is measure by whatever standard you think appropriate. You ask that I face up to this fact? I did not dispute this fact. Not once. Your comment about me makes no reference to fact. Who is d...

You brought up differences of degree in severity or atrocity so it would seem clear that you believe such difference of degree exist. That infers a comparison by you.

I do not draw comparisons because I treat each episode or incident on its own merits. How many times do I have to tell you this? The treatment of the Dutch Boer women and children was a filthy war crime. The British tied pregnant Boer women to cannons and blew them to pieces. It is the reason the A...

The British Empire was to last about 250 years during which time a large part of the world was plundered and its inhabitants treated worse than dogs. No disagreement with that. Some terrible things happened. The Black Hole of Calcutta for example. But it is not unique. We did some pretty awful thin...

Please note: 1945 to the present ]day (1999. We are not discussing the whole of human history here. This section is titled Americans: love them or hate them and the thread is American Independence Day. So it is safe to claim that we would be discussing the United States and not Britain. Try to focu...

You could say the same about Britain throught its history. In fact, it's easier to count those countries Britain hasn't invaded.

Only you could possibly construe my comments as demeaning Muslim organisations. I have not made a single Islamophobic comment, not a single one. However, if you think you can find one I will withdraw it and apologise. As for Cameron, I really don't care which faith he holds or none. What matters is ...
