3. I was about 50 a few years back when I finally got a dvd copy of that and watched the whole thing.

I really enjoyed it. Somehow I had just never watched it all the times it must have been on tv.

4. Are you sure about that?

I know that he was in parts of what are now Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Israel, Egypt, likely Lebanon, but Yemen?

5. He was British ...

... not American.

And they learned their lesson and got out of that stinking sand hole back in the '40s.

6. Au contraire, I still watch that masterpiece from time to time.

You have a good point though. We should remember that history but I don't think we do a very good job of it.

7. Lawrence was a "useful idiot" who persuaded the Arabs to fight for independence

which the British had no interest in giving them at the end of the war.

10. I loved Peter o'Toole in Lawrence of Arabia.

As I loved him in so many other movies, from "What's new Pussycat" to "Troy". He was a class act. They don't make actors like this anymore.
