oh really?
You think that behaviour was basically across the board? I don't know any better, I always pegged those guys are the worst in terms of thought out cruelty.

I remember getting told something along the lines of: if you're getting colonised, probably the best people to be colonized by would be the English. Because however bad you think the stuff they got up to was, the rest of the colonizing powers managed to be worse.

The stuff the Belgians did in the Congo was hellscape nightmare stuff that you'd actively try to forget because it was psychotic. Machine gunning protesters or death marches were sound in comparison.
The Brits got up to the exact same kind of shit all over the world, maybe particularly in the Indian Ocean area. And there was that little potato famine thing... The Belgians basically learnt it from them - and for instance Lord Leverhulme was right in the middle of all that Congo shit, using slave labour provided by the 'authorities', I'm sure there were other cunts like that involved too.

Am I missing a joke or are you confusing Rocky III and Rambo III?

Anyway, I didn't know that it was apparently a fake either. So cheers.
