      In the 19th century, Britain invaded China to force the Chinese government
      to accept imported opium which was poisoning the Chinese population? (After
      Britain won a glorious victory in the Opium Wars, thus forcing China to
      enrich British merchants at the expense of the Chinese population's health,
      the US and France demanded and got from China the same right to import the
      poisonous stuff. Vast fortunes were built on this gangster trade.) You can
