Anglo's are really just weak spined.  I know in the Cold War you had to appeal a little (or otherwise the Communists would win supporters). 

They weren't always like that – the British Empire during 1880 – 1920 didn't stop at nothing to get what they wanted ~ they threw the Boers into the Death Camps over a small amount of Diamonds and Gold.  They did many similiar things throughout the centuries in India.

If the old fashion Anglos were back – they would have killed half of Afghanistan and Iraq's population and took all the resources for themselves.
