Looking at history, the few Orang Puteh countries did colonize the whole world for a very long time. Their footprints and legacy still remain.
Britain, France, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Germany and Belgium ~ they were the naval powers of that time. It was gunboat diplomacy. A few cannons and muskets were enough to scare the natives into surrendering. China was a victim too. But today they preach their democracy and human rights to the world.
And the Middle East is still paying the price, the region being the spoils of war for Britain and France, from the defeat and disintegration of the Ottoman Empire.
