    Go ahead. Add them up and let's see what you get. If you come up with 30 million, then I'll admit that they are worse than Stalin. Cool?

    Oh wow this is amusing. Youve managed to pin all of Europe as the worst in the world based on the actions of 2 nations almost 100 years ago. Good going smart arse, let me go back in time and add up every mofo Salahdin killed and add it to the ME death toll then.

    Oh, that's not enough? Well, let's see, there's Denmark, Sweden, Spain, Chechoslavakia, Yugoslavia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Chetchnya, you want me to keep going?

    So what you are saying is, because of our bad history of human rights, we shouldnt try to make it right today?

    Please do. Not much you can do to make the Africans and Arabs look good anyway.

    Re: Britain to face EU Court on torture allegations

    I think there's been massive atrocities committed in most parts of the world. The Trail of Tears in America, for instance, or the Fugitive Slave Laws. What about Pol Pot or the Nanking massacre or the treatment of British pows in Burma by the Japs? What about Darfur, what about Rwanda, what about the LRA chopping people's arms off? Or General Rosas in what became Argentina? It's all relative. I don't think it's a a regional issue.
