The war on Heffalumps and Woozles is jingoistic pap, a false flag operation.

Haven't heard that racial slur since my grandfather died.  Hitler subby should apologize to whoever this attractive and successful Winnie is.

That's not the preferred nomenclature, dude. African-American, please.

I always liked Mr. Spook. "Live long and do well" he'd always say.

There, of course, isn't anything remotely racist about that portrayal of the Japanese...

Don't get me wrong, they committed horrible atrocities both Germany and Japan (i.e. concentration camps  and the rape of Nanking).  But we need to look in the mirror more about our actions as well (firebombing of Dresden, Japanese interment camps).  Ours were not of the same scale, but it was a sad chapter indeed that we let our fear get the better of us.  Sadly, the war on terror has done some of the same things.  Happily, we openly debate and discuss and try to learn from our lessons, even though we don't always succeed.

Oh hell, it went a long way past just MI-5, MI-6, MI-7...

That's a lot of sections, right there...

This explains those WWI propaganda posters that claim the Germans want to steal our hunny.

My pointing out how racist Farkers are is off topic. Farkers being racists? Never off topic.

am I the only person who read the headline, thinking that it involved Winston Churchill being involved with British Intelligence at one point?

No shiat, I only entered the thread to share the same sentiment. A. A. Milne looks like a super rapist.
