    The British Have Invaded All But 22 Countries

    Every schoolboy used to know that at the height of the empire, almost a quarter of the atlas was coloured pink, showing the extent of British rule.

    But that oft recited fact dramatically understates the remarkable global reach achieved by this country.

    A new study has found that at various times the British have invaded almost 90 per cent of the countries around the globe.
    The analysis of the histories of the almost 200 countries in the world found only 22 which have never experienced an invasion by the British.

    Among this select group of nations are far-off destinations such as Guatemala, Tajikistan and the Marshall Islands, as well some slightly closer to home, such as Luxembourg.

    I guess the good Ol' US of A has some work to do to catch up

    I was pleasantly surprised by this suggestion .
    I guess our genes have therefore saved the planet many times .

    The nice thing to remember is that we retain so many of these Johnny Foreigners as friends . Quite unlike the American attempt to manipulate the rest of the world to its greed . They have only made enemies and can count nobody as friends .
    The British used their Religion for decency and education . The Americans simply use it as a Hate fuel .Both of each other and all outsiders .

    Whatever happened to the British Empire, the one the sun never set on?

    Why does imperialism end up failing?

    Which friends would those be? The migrants come looking for money, jobs, and to abuse your welfare state. As for world opinion, you may be liked more than in the past but only because you've become irrelevant. You don't matter. What's not to like?
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    It spent itself into failure.

    I don't expect you make a substantial reply. We all know that's not your thing.

    Again, though, isn't that true of any imperialists? Where's the Roman Empire these days?
