Why Border lines Drawn With A Ruler In WWI Still Rock The Middle East:

“Straight lines make uncomplicated borders. Most probably that was the reason why most of the lines that Mark Sykes, representing the British government, and Francois Georges-Picot, from the French government, agreed upon in 1916 were straight ones.”

How The British Divided Up The Arab World:

How the British Divided Up the Arab World

“The development of the modern nation states throughout the Arab world is a fascinating and heartbreaking process. 100 years ago, most Arabs were part of the Ottoman Empire/Caliphate, a large multi-ethnic state based in Istanbul.”

Six Famous Walls:

“The Berlin wall was the ultimate symbol of the Cold War for 28 years. After World War II, control of Germany was divided between the Allies.”

Berlin Wall:

“On August 13, 1961, the Communist government of the German Democratic Republic (GDR, or East Germany) began to build a barbed wire and concrete “Antifascistischer Schutzwall,” or “antifascist bulwark,” between East and West Berlin.”

    XD sure, that's why most Islamic terrorist attacks are from Muslims against Muslims, because they are "super capable" by themselves. It would be strange that the PC movement with its media elements would not blame something on "whites" and their cultures, their countries, which have contributed so much to the world, but whatever they (PCs) say, the incursions of Europe into other lands are civilizing missions, are significant contributions to the progress of these regions and the world is a much better place thanks to which Europe has had a presence.

  5. Ulemont Ashcroft says:

    Yeah because Arabs would have drawn their borders sooo much better.. Look at how much peace ISIS is bringing to the region with their redrawing of borders.

    The White People in the Americas are not even Americans they are all Europeans. The Native People of the Americas suffered a long-term Genocide at the hands of Facist and Racist White Europeans- a people famous for genocides and mass murderers.
