Would it be fair to say that Australia have more closely followed the Anglo way of not starting wars compared to the USA?

The USA have started almost every single war they have been in which is not what most Anglo countries do. Britain's main objective for hundreds of years was to avoid war at all cost. If you get backed into a corner then show people what a cornered lion looks like.

Forget what the East India Company did because they weren't an Anglo nation, they were uncontrollable, much like the USA. Even the hundred year war that Britain had with France was sparked by them trying to invade us.

Britain has won more wars than every other modern country combined but we don't go looking for fights, that is a fool's errand.

    It would be fair to say you follow the current trend of apologising for being white.

    It has nothing to do with  the anglo  starting  wars  or not   but  all about  defending  our countries  against  invasion  and other  countries  who  cannot defend themselves  so China  don't  expect us to let  you take our  country you will rue the  day you  try

    It depends how far back we go, as to whether Anglos started wars - we started plenty in the far past.

    Both Britain and the USA don't start wars. They respond to perceived world threats and try and neutralise them before they become major wars that could become world wars. Neither Britain or the USA decide to just start a war for no reason. For example America is debating as to whether Iran is becoming a threat to world peace and world oil supplies with its action of the last few months. America is one of the few countries with the power to make sanctions really hurt the economy of a troublesome country and generally they try that as their first way of bringing threatening countries to their senses by badly affecting their economy. America is not a bully but has very good intelligence gathering and can see what rogue countries are attempting to do to gain world power by damaging the lives of other countries.

    The USA does not want war as wars are very expensive and politically are not popular. They are a method employed by the USA and other NATO countries to bring rogue countries who threaten world peace back into line and show them the world will not accept war mongering countries anymore. The USA does not go to these wars alone although they are the ones who like the publicity and most other countries there keep a low profile but are actively involved. Had the USA not stepped in with other NATO countries to deal with Iraq and later ISIS the Middle East may now have been a part of the world ruled by cut throats who were planning to use Middle East oil to fund a super army and start a world war of Muslim against Christian and non Muslim countries.

    After WW2 NATO was formed to control rogue nations and dangerous regimes who threaten world peace and we have been lucky that the world because of the actions of the USA and NATO to have had more peace that at any other period of history. By the Time the USA gets involved generally the threat level has become too high to ignore and armed action is needed to restore peace and remove rogue leaders.

    Britain must declare it's independence from Europe and go to war if necessary.

    As much as I dislike Trump he's the only US President in living memory who actually hasn't invaded someone else's country. A lot to be said for that.

    I'd agree that the poms aren't as hawkish as past American Administrations, but your past is a tad chequered.

    The Boer Concentration Camps, the Mau Mau Uprising war crimes, the Amristsa Massacre, displacing 10 million people in the partition of India, Churchill starving 12-30 million Indians on the basis that it was their own fault for "breeding like rabbits". Not too flash.

      Not taking all of their wheat and shipping it to Europe would have done the trick. It was a calculated move to weaken the push for independence in full knowledge that millions would die.

    Without debating what the UK did or didnt do back in the day, I would respectfully point out that the US does not consider itself an "Anglo nation" and we are not part of the commonwealth. We share a language and have some similar ideas about government, but the US is its own thing.
