BRITISH HISTORY 101

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/12/30/bbc-royals-charles_n_6394832.html

On both sides of the Atlantic, it is virtually impossible to find a transparent expose of “British History 101”. After centuries of global dominance and colonial exploitation within Her empire, the UK eschews media coverage that presents British History from an unflattering perspective. For example, the Opium Wars, the Boer Wars, and Apartheid are given cursory coverage, if mentioned at all, in many textbooks. Concomitantly, British media often exposes and vilifies Muslim, Asian, and African acts of terror while extricating any account of Britain’s terrorism and barbaric hegemony from the public discourse or the historical record. Do we do the same thing here in the United States? Bien sur! Ergo, as high school history students and autodidacts alike reexamine World War II History and the Bush-Blair Magnum Opus, what might today’s Prime Ministers and Presidents be conspiring in order to precipitate World War III? Explain.
