Right, so, Middle East. A French diplomat makes certain assurances to a British soldier, and sends him off to recruit Arabs to help kick Turks out of the desert. Yeah, we probably shouldn't get involved, but then again there is rather a lot of oil in that desert and we need it. It's either that, or making friends with the Russians.

Oh look! We've got three large military powers that have been interfering in the region for centuries mentioned right along side the British! But no, apparently it is all the fault of the British. Hmmm....

Of course, it has nothing to do with the United Nations that Israel are allowed to walk all over the Palestinians, steal their land, refuse refugees permission to return, and pretty much blockade them in their own homes?

It has nothing to do with self-determination that the Salafist Wahabi sect are hell bent on eliminating any other religious rivals, such as Kurds and Shia muslims does it? No, it is all the fault of the British, because we sent a some what na´ve but rather effective officer to do every bodys dirt;y work and ensure a plentiful supply of oil for generations to come.

Thing is, you've picked problems from areas of former British influence, and completely ignored that:

1. Those areas have been independent for decades, and it is up to them to get their shit together.

2. Places like the Middle East are just regional spats that we place too much significance on because of the involvement of our military, and the inevitable consequences of that to our own populations. You're completely ignoring the massive environmental catastrophes that are the real big problems in the world. Well, I suppose at a stretch, whilst you couldn't praise the British for inventing the wheel and harnessing fire, you could pour blame on them for putting the two together and inventing industry, eh?
