  1. I hope China has forgotten about this. Cos eventually they will be the only World Empire and may bare grudges. It's a shame that with such a large population China couldn't create a large army. Maybe they were unable to make enough armaments? It's weird seeing India and Pakistan labelled Great Britain. I bet they never saw how pathetic they would become less than 200 years later.

  2. What was the problem to fight back when the country wanted her citizen free from drug? Just because the Brittan wanted to conquer another country to satisfy her greed.

  3. The weakness of China is truly astonishing. China should have been able to commit tens of thousands of soldiers, if not even more, to the struggle. The audacity and sense of entitlement by the British is equally astonishing. But it worked. This was the ultimate manifestation of might makes right. Queen Victoria was the biggest drug pusher in world history.

  4. It is astonishing to see almost all comments are amazed by Britain’s act of violence and don’t feel slightly guilty about the invasions and trade using coercion. The western world never truly cares about non-western lives.

  5. Map @0:30.
    Marathas: Hahhahahahah😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂.
    Western propoganda never cease to make me laugh.
    I would like to give a piece of wisdom always watch videos on YouTube with a pinch of salt.
    Makes 99% video are pure propoganda.
    Just like the Mughal empire is shown in video😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  6. Ashamed to be British!
    All British school children should be taught this.
    However it is no surprise that greed and drug running motivated Palmerston.
    He was a Tory after all.
    Closer to home Tories were happy to let the Irish starve in the Potato Famine around the same time.
    It is ironic that Post Brexit Britannia is now sinking beneath the waves and the Tories who engineered Brexit are hiding the money they made from the London Laundromat in offshore tax havens.
    Leopards do not change their spots!

  7. if you attack a flag of truce or imprison/kill a diplomat, you deserve everything you get. It was precisely this reason that the Summer Palace was put to the torch.

  8. The UK used to be so great. A quarter of the world's land used to be hers. The most powerful navy in history used be to hers. Now, she's just a shadow of itself. Her economy is struggling, her cost of living is unaffordable, and her foreign policy is basically: "Don't piss off America and do whatever they want us to do."
    The sun has truly set on the British Empire.
