While good people of French Colonies Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam went through both century of Colonialism and decade of savage wars.
It is a pay back time ; a man got to do what a man got to do, thy ye Colonial Masters .

Carrot & Stick,Bunny & Bully: What happen to bunnies if the bullies carry big sticks, and get to hold of almost all the carrots around? That's our world, now and then.

With the rise of Middle Kingdom China and others, their 'once absolute monopoly' is waning; say, compared to 50 yrs ago. In 50 yrs from now, it will be history.

The good, the bad & the ugly! When crony capitalists rule, or ruin the world,things turn upside down.The good become the bad, the bad & ugly turn good. What a world we live in!

Heartless Souless Colonialist Imperialist -

The truth is that -

the world in general became poorer and poorer since the rise of thievery Anglo & the Western colonial imperial power.

Its about 'Lesser of two evils'!

   Myanmar probably has suffered the worst and has faced the longest tragic end & isolation among 40-something colonies under British.  
It was said that British snapped her just before France was planning to do the same, from next door Laos, a French colony.
Under the French the lesser evil, homogeneous tiny Burma, at least, would have been spared from onslaught with
millions of immigration of muslims & others from giant British India subcontinent. While Laos has no (forced)foreignimmigration,
its also more developed and peaceful.

You got that right, Mo!

'Colonialism and Colonization in Mother Asia, and if they didn't do it, who would?'

Japan went all the way to face bullies all out fronts in South-East Asia, both mainland Indochina and islands, and to get

rid of Western colonial disease that had been lingering on in Asia for so long.

Getting rid of permanent colonization of Australia/NZ in Asia Pacific region was probably next in the plan, but unfortunately

they were facing against evil enemies ten times stronger, in terms of resources and manpower.

Wolves will be wolves. With wolves roaming around, there's NO way the innocent world will survive, let alone prosper. The world community must be united to empower them.

one thing that i learn...never blame on anyone but yourself first (my rule of thumb)  {:soso_e114:}{:soso_e135:}
