From Foreign Trade to Colonial Conquest
Trade in India must be conducted and maintained under the protection and favour of your weapons, and the weapons must be supplied from the profits enjoyed by the trade, so that trade cannot be maintained without war or war without trade." (from Auguste Toussaint's: History of the Indian Ocean)
Dutch Jan Pieterzoon Coen (1614)
