comment Does anyone have a concrete example of the British Empire using revolution to gain control over foreign resources, governments?
It is very difficult to say exactly for the British because in recent history they acted in accordance with the US. Consider Afghanistan, Chile, post-WWII Greece.

Interesting! But u say the West should give weapons to Tutsies to stop the genocide. But had not they have the weapons already especially given the army was pro-Tutsi? Also on which side was the government? I thought it were Tutsi who rebelled but u are speaking about Hutu rebels...
