@IrishUnity This is blatantly false and woefully misleading.

Churchill is hardly to blame for the Bengal Famine, neither are the British (to an extent). This view is now openly rejected. @IrishUnity We should first address, who's on the doorstep of the British Raj? The most formidable force in the Pacific Theatre, Imperial Japan.

The Japanese are on the cusp of entering into India having already secured Burma.

#Reserves Continuous Attitude #SurveyResults 2019
#ReCas. This survey of volunteer reserves covers satisfaction with various aspects of being a reservist. #Volunteer reservists are more likely to be satisfied
with life in their Service, feel a greater sense of
pride, and recommend joining to others compared
with trained #Regulars. Satisfaction with Service
life, in general, has increased for both #Reserves
and #Regulars since 2018.

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist. #FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
