As a Brit, for you to accuse another European country of being about "war and imperialism" is extremely hypocritical when you have a good understanding of Britain's previous 300 year history. You and I and all of us have all been indoctrinated into regarding ourselves as the 'good guys' fighting evil. I again invite you to lay such thinking aside temporarily in order to check whether the actual evidence supports it.
