Subject: RE: BS: The NEW Red Coats
Excuse me! Kiplin realised that Britain was in decline and he thought that the future lay with America. (Mind you, that was the time when the Anglo-Saxon elite still ran America.) That is why he called the American invasion of the Phillipines, "The white man's burden." He approved of the act and thought this is the direction that America's future lay, to take over the role of Britain. Prophetic, really.
