I don't believe the British or U.S governments correctly evaluated things before invading both Afghanistan and Iraq. Osama wasn't located before hand a assumption was made on his whereabouts. Claims that this was to make the world safer are not correct. Otherwise we wouldn't have to live with the risk of attacks from this radicals. The SAS has moved into London somewhere so it's clear the risk is very high from another attack. Before these two conflicts the threat from attack here from those type of radicals was virtually nil.
Now a lot of anti-western sentiment has been started/revived by invasion of these companies and our inability to get these two wars over and done with is incredible. The anti-western feeling is getting stronger everyday we spend in these countries. If we calculated it the threat from al queda could have been taken out with very little military action or via some sneaky spying. Destroying al queda from within.
We will remain in these countries for another few years.. maybe even longer.
The entire U.K would be speaking GermanYes and even though the invasions of some countries is frowned upon in the beginning. More times than not, the result is that a madman has been taken down as dictator and the people can once again enjoy freedom w/o fear of being slaughtered for religious beliefs and many other deranged reasons. Look at Europe for example, can you imagine what it would be like now and how many millions of people would have died if the Allies hadn't gotten rid of Hitler.
Thanks to the war heroes from all nations far and wide!
