Actually this subjct, like most important subjects, can be traced all the way to a relgious theme. Every thinking person eventually ponders the question, "Where did i come from?"
and it is how that question is answered that decides how we live our lives.
There are only two possible answers to this question.
1. I made accidently myself. ie Evolution
2. I was created purposely. ie Some kind of Creator.
Each answer will set you on a separate path.
The answer you choose for yourself will determine how you live your life affecting every single decision you make.......! Including politics!

The answer should be obvious from my opening post. Military intervention can not change peoples customs and religion. Tradition and religion is the real enemy here. The spread of the new religion of Christianity is what civilized all of Europe to the cannibals of New Guinea. It will take the same to civilize these people,too.

To include USA and Britain in your argument is just silly, unless you want to bring USA's treatment of American Indians and British colonialism into it. And that would be silly too because that is not NOW!
