England- Another State of USA?

Updated on February 21, 2018

Sun never sets in the British Empire

What an excellent phrase to portray the mighty of the British Empire! As a student of History , I am very much admired the greatness of the British Empire. I am unable to imagine how a small island could bring almost the whole world under its control. Greedy despotism can achieve such things. But how it became possible for a powerful democracy? The only reason for this was the British politicians' determination, whether they were in the ruling side or in the opposition, to make Britain as Great Britain. But after the emergence of USA, what happened to this little lion? The great empire which created many colonies in the world, why became a colony of USA? Why it lost its individuality and identity? While German and France are still remaining as powers to reckon with, why England lost all its mighty and always second fiddling to USA? Friendship with USA may be beneficial to England, but acting as "Yes Minister" is degrading its past glory.The Great British Empire which created many new nations , now looks like 51st State of USA. Nobody will want England to be hostile with USA. But at the same time it should not loose its individuality in the international arena. Even countries like Israel, has their own opinion in the international matters, England always reflects only the policies of USA- whether it is about war with Iraq or war on terrorism. If USA wants, UK sends army to battle anywhere in the world and sacrifices its soldiers , eventhough those battles are no way connected with England. I am an Indian and I have hundreds of reasons to criticize the British rule in India, but still I admire the greatness of the British empire. All I want to say that why England should not come out from the clutches of USA and act as an individual nation and cherish the past memories.

      I think after Bush goes you will see this separation.

      maybe even before, with Blair stepping down and Brown taking his place, you might see this change. I think the Iraq debacle will have a long-term effect on Great Britain's trust and hence support for U.S. war profit ventures, especially since only the U.S. profits, not the British.

      I think Blair was more than ready to step down by the way. And he finally converted to Catholicism, bless his heart. :)

      I disagree that Britain is one of the states of the USA. They have cultural and other ties with the USA. USA citizens are British and Irish who went to that country. Can you say that Bengal is China's state.
