i met an english soldier who served in rawalpindi. he began to cry when he described the war and how much he missed the place and desperately wants to visit again.

I find his attitude very surreal. Bit like meeting an American in 60 years time who starts talking about the good old days of being in fallujah and how he'd like to go back.

^ Not the same comparison at all.

You have to understand the British were in South Asia for nearly 2 centuries; Therby not all of those white Britons that were part of the Governance/Civil Society had the same "Oppressor" Mentality.

I suggest looking at the genuine friendship between Ghanaian and Nigerian Colonial task force members that were setup to help the New Independent governments, and the members of those new Independent governments - Not everyone was a monster, and many grew up in these colonial places - Thats many peoples childhoods right there.
