don't you realise that there were raids on iceland where iceland was held and many people were taken and sold as slaves? Icelandic people couldn't do shit against the Ottomans.
I'm sorry chap, you seem to have posted the wrong image.
Worry not, I'm here to help.
It was more about trading. The Brit Empire was very different to the Ottoman or Roman Empires where you had a centralised authority deciding about what to conquer next.
Most of the formal military action was ad hoc defence of our various multinationals, traders and missionaries when natives and rivals started causing trouble.
India was conquered by the East India company, Much of Africa was conquered by Cecil Rhodes. The US colonies were commercial ventures.

I disagree. Without a doubt it was the Roman Empire. Sure they fell (a tear I weep every time) but not without leaving their mark on history.
Technology, science, government, arts, culture, that affected not only that era, but the countless eras after.
if faggots on /pol/ like Bill Warner are going to piss and moan about "muslim conquests!11" then it's fine for us to accept it with pride.
You realize that Ottomans had conquered what had historically been considered the center of the world while Russians were shitting themselves in log cabins and getting raped by qipchak and cuman on the regular

Presumably whites should be proud of colonialism, or does this reasoning only apply to muds?
