Apart from Maastricht and Lisbon which are being ripped up and thrown out of the window in real time.the UK is known to honour and has honoured the treaties it makes and made.
It's just convenient to ignore bygone stuff..Apart from Maastricht and Lisbon which are being ripped up and thrown out of the window in real time.
And the small matter of the dozens of treaties with he individual Princes and states in India that helped keep the peace, but Attlee just threw out of the window in 1947.
Oh and the Trucial States' treaties, revoked by the UK in 1971.
It's not a matter of being pro or anti gun. It's contrasting an unarmed culture (the UK) with an armed culture (US). I owned and shot firearms as a sport and hobby and carried and used them as a crown servant. It's the civillian defence use I'm contrasting.What you write is not always true and yet again you are attempting to portray incorrect information. I would suggest you actually do some research before quoting on here as you are obviously not an expert nor even a person who bothers to obtain the correct information.
It seems to me far more likely that you are anti-gun regardless of your previous posts.
I joined the Army at 17 years old, lucky enough to spend little time in UK postings over my twelve year service. Lived in the US for 33 years now so basically spent more time here than in the UK.Indeed so.
Those of us who figuratively straddle the Atlantic seem a lot more rounded in their worldly views, it seems to me.
But he's right. You got a shoeing, hell even a girl sold you out (Laura Secord). Plus the natives even kicked your arse.What a pile of agenda-driven shite.
If Britain's war objectives were to push the US back to their side of the border, WTF were they doing in Washington and Baltimore? And indeed ultimately being driven back to their side of the border.
Granted the US kicked it off and ended up not achieving its aims, but what exactly did the British gain, in order to claim it as a victory? I would suggest fcuk all, as did Wellington, of all people. Peace was in everyone's interests, and they reached that peace in Ghent.
Your underlying Anti-American sentiment seems to come out in just about every post you make that concerns the USA. Did an American mug you for your lunch money as a kid or something?
Aye I knew that, but c'mon sticking her coupon on a bar of chocolate, WTF! Could have at least stuck the lass on a twenty dollar bill or something.hell even a girl sold you out (Laura Secord)
Not sadOne strange outcome of America’s oddness is a US national seemingly sad and concerned that we hung a traitorous Nazi some seventy years ago. And expressing it on a quasi-military British website.
And carrying the butthurt of several hundred years ago.
Maybe he was dry bummed by some nasty Booties on an exchange visit to San Diego.
Well yes it would even the US didnt hang people like Axis Sally and Tokyo Rose, or my neighbor who though born in the USA was in the LW during the warActually an interesting case. Technically a lie invalidates the application. However if he couldn’t renounce his US citizenship and his country was at war with Germany he would have been at odds with the US anyway, so the outcome wouldn’t have changed.
Just a guess but it may explain some of the degree of anti-US animus apparent in some posts in this and some other threads.I gave you a funny because I was just knew someone would bring that up. Didn't think it would be you though.
I recall a favourite tale my Grandad (a no-nonsense Ulsterman) would tell of a visit to a posh home in South Dublin in 1947.Actually an interesting case. Technically a lie invalidates the application. However if he couldn’t renounce his US citizenship and his country was at war with Germany he would have been at odds with the US anyway, so the outcome wouldn’t have changed.
