You could not be more wrong if you tried! For a so-called professional person your lack of general knowledge is appaling. Do you know no European history at all? I've noticed this in most Asians that I have come into contact with. They have no breadth of knowledge.

The Pilgrim Fathers were not criminals or anything like criminals. They were religious dissenters who decided to start new lives in a new land where they would not be oppressed. Later the British did set up penal settlements originally in the American colonies, and generally sentences were for 7 years. After the colonials got their independence, many British convicts were sent to Australia. But in both countries, by far the majority of the settlers were free men, hard-working farmers and craftmen looking for a place where land was cheap, and the possibility to progress was better than in crowded Europe.

I can't believe that you went through the American education system....

I don't think he did.

He probably bought his certificate from his native country and the friendly muslim sold him US certification board results.

Unless (as I suspect) it is shabah in his newest incarnation laughing after every post he makes.

Curious. Why should Asians care about American or British history?
