Proud to be British? - Franz Ferdinand
June 28th marks the 99th anniversary of the assassination of Franz Ferdinand and the beginning of British brainwashing relating the cause of World War I. Of course it had nothing to do with the fact that the Berlin - Baghdad railway line was nearing completion. Of course not. It had nothing to do with the fact this would bypass the British controlled Suez Canal and open up new trade routes to Asia and beyond that were not on British terms. Especially in an era where oil was quickly becoming the fuel of choice for the various naval forces of Europe.
Next year the British will be celebrating being at war over oil for a hundred years. PARTY HARD!!! Here's a video from comedian and writer Rob Newman where he talks about oil and the wars it has led to. At the very least I would suggest everyone plays it in the background whilst doing whatever it is they do on the internet. Direct link.
