The UK preferred the con stitutional monarchy model and imposed it on what became Iraq.� Iraq’s first post-colonial ruler, King Feisal, was widely regarded as a British puppet.� He was originally the “king” of Syria before the French kicked him out.� The British then used him to be Iraq’s first “king.”� Kuwait was a puppet nation, almost invented out of whole cloth by the British, as a way to further their regional aims, particularly as related to Iraq.� Carving Kuwait from Iraq nearly completely landlocked Iraq.� Iraq has only 36 miles of coastline, and its main port is upstream on the Shatt al Arab (the waterway formed by the joining of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers) at Al Basrah, known as Basra to westerners.� The oil-rich Mosul region in northern Iraq was forcefully separated from Turkey by the UK in 1918.� Winston Churchill was instrumental in leading the region’s exploitation before and after World War I.� Churchill has the distinction of being the first to advocate chemical warfare in that part of the world, using it on Iraqis and proudly justifying it, although it was "only" tear gas in that instance. [247] � Churchill advocated genocidal measures during World War II, including anthrax bombs.� In addition, the UK wanted the Iraq region as a safe plunder route from its vast colonial holdings in India, and planned to build a railroad through there. [248] In a mom ent of candor, Churchill let slip what the British game was all about, in a 1914 letter to his colleagues in the Cabinet: “we are not a young people with an innocent record and a scanty inheritance.� We have engrossed to ourselves…an altogether disproportionate share of the wealth and traffic of the world.� We have got all we want in territory, and our claim to be left in the unmolested enjoyment of vast and splendid possessions, mainly acquired by violence, largely maintained by force, often seems less reasonable to others than to us.” [249] During the 1920s, Churchill had his letter published in The World Crisis, but with the italicized words deleted, so that the masses would not be burdened with digesting too much undiluted truth.

Refusing Magellan’s request for a reward, Manuel ordered him back to Morocco. The discovery, conquest, sack, and destruction of the Aztec Empire brought great excitement to Europe.� The Spanish gold rush began in earnest with that event.� Until then, Europeans had largely encountered “primitive” natives in the New World, but the Aztecs were another matter.� Their capital city was arguably the world’s most spectacular and its markets more breathtaking than anything the Spanish invaders had ever seen.� After the Aztec discovery and sack, endless boatloads of European freebooters set sail for the New World, seeking fame, riches, and there was a virtually unlimited supply of native women to rape.� The Treaty of Tordesillas unwittingly gave Portugal a chunk of South America as its domain of conquest, but Portugal was far too busy mining the “Golden Goa” route for the spice trade to devote any resources to the New World.� French ships began landing in Brazil in 1504 and had no respect for Portugal’s theoretical claims to it.� French pirates harried returning Spanish ships as early as 1504, seized a huge Aztec plunder shipment in 1523, and began raiding Spain’s Caribbean ports in the 1530s.� Silver was relatively expensive then, and had been getting more expensive for centuries, as gold was the primary preoccupation of mercenaries and miners.� In China there was a particular desire for silver, and it was better to pay them in silver for their goods than gold, so Portugal began seeking silver.
