The consequences of British invasion for greed-based conquest (as opposed, for example, to invasion for the purpose of liberation from Nazism in WW2) ranged from total or near-total dispossession and extermination of hundreds of unique Indigenous peoples in the Americas and Australia to the active and passive mass murder of scores of millions in Africa and China and the avoidable deaths from deprivation of1.8 billion Indians under the British Raj.
History ignored yields history repeated. Britain in the 21st century is still invading and devastating other countries ( Mali , Libya , Iraq , Afghanistan ) in the Zionist-promoted US War on Muslims.
Not satisfied with Britain’s First Syrian War (WW1) and Britain’s Second Syrian War (WW2), the UK is now presently engaged in Britain’s Third Syrian War. Similarly, not satisfied with Britain’s First Iraqi War (1914-1932), Britain’s Second Iraqi War (1941-1948), Britain’s Third Iraqi War (the 1990-2003 Sanctions War in which 1.7 million Iraqis, half of them children, died avoidably from imposed deprivation), Britain’s Fourth Iraqi War (the 1990-1991 Gulf War in which 0.2 million Iraqis were killed), and Britain’s Fifth Iraqi War (2003-2011 in which 2.7 million Iraqi died, this including 1.5 million violent deaths and 1.2 million avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation), the UK is now engaged with its war criminal Western and other allies in Britain’s Sixth Iraqi War (2014- onwards, with thousands of Iraqis killed and thousands more to die from war-imposed deprivation in what seems to be an endless war for oil and hegemony).
Britain invaded Australia on the 26th of January 1788 and this is celebrated as Australian Day by white Australians. However Indigenous Australians commemorate this event as Invasion Day in remembrance of the continuing Australian Aboriginal Genocide and Australian Aboriginal Ethnocide in which 600 unique Indigenous groups and dialects disappeared, with only 150 remaining and of these all but 20 severely endangered.
Britain has invaded 193 countries – all but 10 of the world’s 203 countries – and continues to illegally and criminally invade other countries for oil and hegemony. Invasion is the most powerful expression of racism.
Annually victims of the serial invader, nuclear terrorist, exceptionalist and still invading British rogue state are bombarded with the glorification of their genocidal history during their so called ‘Remembrance Day’ symbolised by the blood red poppy – founded by the butcher of the Somme Lord Haigh.
Their deeds would shame all the devils in hell.
