Why Border lines Drawn With A Ruler In WWI Still Rock The Middle East:

“Straight lines make uncomplicated borders. Most probably that was the reason why most of the lines that Mark Sykes, representing the British government, and Francois Georges-Picot, from the French government, agreed upon in 1916 were straight ones.”

How the British Divided Up the Arab World

“The development of the modern nation states throughout the Arab world is a fascinating and heartbreaking process. 100 years ago, most Arabs were part of the Ottoman Empire/Caliphate, a large multi-ethnic state based in Istanbul.”

Six Famous Walls:

“The Berlin wall was the ultimate symbol of the Cold War for 28 years. After World War II, control of Germany was divided between the Allies.”

Berlin Wall:

“On August 13, 1961, the Communist government of the German Democratic Republic (GDR, or East Germany) began to build a barbed wire and concrete “Antifascistischer Schutzwall,” or “antifascist bulwark,” between East and West Berlin.”

  1. White Europeans are prone to criminality and immorality.everywhere they set foot on earth burns.just look at their history in Africa,Americas,Asia,middle east and Australia full of genocide and left theft.this race is satanic.

  2. The White People in the Americas are not even Americans they are all Europeans. The Native People of the Americas suffered a long-term Genocide at the hands of Facist and Racist White Europeans- a people famous for genocides and mass murderers.

  3. Sure, blame White people for everyone because it's PC. But never talk about evils of Israel and the International bankers because that's "anti semitic" Bu Hu Hu.

  4. 0:38 "they believed that the region woul be better off" is a monstrous euphemism. better off for whom? only for the european empires and their local supporters. whoever wrote this text is very apologetic for imperialism. this denounces a very suspect political stand.

  5. No no no its YOU amerikans are to blame for the war, YOU support rebels (rebels became isis ofcourse) also stop fucking generalising, only france and britian did that dont blame montanegro, lituania or luxenburg.

  6. All these Europeans are pissed about this video. You guys talk about the USA like we are all fat and lazy, but if any European country went to war with the US then the US would destroy you. You guys have weak countries.

  7. People in Central Europe have nothing to do with colonialism, black slavery, KKK wars in Middle East and other bad stuff. In fact we were attacked and killed by turkic islamic barbarians and evil Germans for Centuries and nobody want remember about that.

  8. seriously, i might be wrong, but i think obamas decision to pull troops out of iraq gave isis the time to recover and gain momemtum. shouldn'T obama get SOME blame for the paris attacks? it just goes to show the politicians only care about winning the election. after that their in over their head.

  9. even though european decisions fucked up the middle east, i dont believe they would all have gotten along if it didnt happen

  10. of course Western government aka white boys have caused this,( lol I speak leftist dribble)but in the end being, weather useful idiot or not, have to take responsibility for what they do…Yes, Western government white boys aka state of loving Democrats and Republicans caused this but the INDIVIDUAL is still responsible for their own actions!
