I wonder, if Scotland votes for independence- will England invade to prevent Scotland from seceding?

Acts of parliament under extreme duress and influence, and against the wishes of the vast majority of the people (at least in Scotland's case), and after having failed in 3 previous attempts, right?

Regardless, it's not as if the English armies rolled in, conquered by force of arms and started pumping in settlers.  The governing bodies agreed to a treaty, and integrated by choice....

He mentioned that for thousands of years they have felt that way, so I mentioned that for thousands of years the feelings are mutual. That's all. Besides, if you look into the non European countries there are still faith based killings by Christians.

My point isn't to say that Christians are better or worse than Muslims. My point is to say that people(albeit a small minority of these groups) of all beliefs will persecute and kill those who are different from them. I wish we lived in a different world but get rid of religion and humans would find a way to kill each for some arbitrary reason.

You could just say that in general people suck, have always sucked and will always suck.  That about covers it all....

Makes less sense now that there's an EU than it would have in the past.

But I'd have liked to see GB relinquish both Scotland and Northern Ireland decades ago, when colony-building ceased to be considered decent.

I don't think you can rightly consider Scotland a colony.  Way back when England and Scotland joined up of their own free will via concurrent acts of parliament. Northern Ireland is another matter though...

Think this fits here given the subject.  Anyone remember where I've talked about the "doomsday option"?

Israel wants nuclear weapons, as was both explicit and implicit in our conversations with [Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Yitzhak] Rabin, for two reasons: first, to deter the Arabs from striking Israel, and second, if deterrence fails and Israel were about to be overrun, to destroy the Arabs in a nuclear Armageddon,” the State Department memo noted.

Israeli Dolphin class subs are reported to carry a sea launch version of the Popeye cruise missile that can carry a 200kt nuclear warhead out to a range of 1500km.  That puts basically every major arab capital within missile range.

It's long been rumored that the subs "final orders" include launching every missile they have at predetermined targets and high tailing it to friendly ports in western Europe.
