Thread Name: Persians
Subject: RE: Persians
I firmly believe that many of todays world problems are a hangover from the Empire, and the question of what the empires left behind
The Persian one is a new one on me, but elsewhere we have covered the horrors of The Congo following King Leopold's atrocities, and the ongoing racist Some of us would prefer you kept reference to the irish famine exclusively to irish famine threads, there you can expound on your perverted view of history to your heart's content.problems caused by immigration from former colonies
The old Empires were left in a deplorable mess by their former masters, and that mess was compounded by a deliberate policy to leave the former colinies "safe" - (read manipulable) hands
The consequences of leaving despots in charge have led to mass suffering, starvation, and now a massive itinerant world population seeking refuge from despotim and better lives
That is why questions like Ireland, arms sales, oil, immigration.... all merge into one during these debates...., they are all out of the same stable
I have little doubt that other atrocities like the handling of the Irish and Persian Famines are yet to emerge
