Great Britan has been the power house of the world for the last 300 years. However, their interference throughout the world can be traced all the way to modern day problems. Here are the main two: One: The Middle East. Britan formed boundries regardless of the religions or ethnicities of the people there, such as Iraq. Furthermore, they saw it fit to take lands and create Israel itself. While I dont question the Jew's rights to live there, I do question the wisdom of creating a nation of Jews in Muslim territory. Two: Ireland: The IRA has been a huge problem for teh British, and all they do is complain about it. However, what right did the British have to take part of an island that was not theirs, and then prosecute the people of the island. The whole conflict there can be traced back to the British meddling. People complain about America as the cause of conflict throughout the world. Yet it appears to me as though the worlds largest physical conflicts can be traced to the British foriegn policies. Anyone else have insight on this?
