Why does British want to destroy Iraq and Iran ?

Is it because of oil, do you think they have caused the sunni and shia fighting, like they did in 1980 when Iran told British to leave it's oil in Iran, because UK owned Iranian oil, it gave Iran 15 % back. The British got upset and told SADDAM a sunni to wage war against Iran, UK and Isreal supplied Iraq with weapons of mass destruction ie biological and chemical weapons, Saddam killed 5,000 Iranians in one strike alone. USA and Britain did nothing as two Brothers killed each other for a decade, and they supplied weapons to Iraq to kill muslim brother. Lets face it the war, could of been avoided but not.

Update:

dont you people see the west are using shia and sunni to kill each other, they sit back and laugh. People wake up this is a Jewish conspiracy.

Update 2:

what goes around comes around, you see BRITISH MI6 and SAS helped the mujadeen of Afghanistan when Russia invaded Afghanistan, we supplied them with Blowpipes and Javelin and know how to destroy Russian Tanks and helicopters. It destroyed Russia, Britain has made a big mistake going into Islamic countries.

    Neither the British nor the Americans want to destroy Iraq and Iran. If we wanted to destroy Iraq we could have done so already and done it without dropping a nuke on the place. We are already there. If we really wanted to own Iraq all we have to do is tell the local government to get lost and take over. Iran is different only in that we are not already in that country. Don't you understand that if we wanted to we could have control of that nation in a matter of weeks.

    The British did not tell Saddam to attack Iran. He was just a madman who thought he was recreating a huge country called Persia.

    The various branches of Islam have been fighting for thousands of years and I don't see it stopping any time soon. Unfortunately their fighting didn't stop at each other and now they want control over the world. They want us all to become Muslim. Maybe we should just have let those two madmen (Saddam and Armajadahad (sp)) go at each other until they destroyed each other then just walked in to clean up the mess they left behind.

    I think it also goes back before they new oil was there. Britain at one time occupied Iraq in the days when "The sun never sets on the British Empire".

    Here's an excerpt from a website the link to which is below:

    "British Colonialism and Repression in Iraq

    Britain set up a colonial regime in Iraq after a long military campaign during World War I. In response to Iraqi resistance, including a country-wide uprising in 1920, British forces battled for over a decade to pacify the country, using airplanes, armored cars, firebombs and mustard gas. Air attacks were used to shock and awe, to teach obedience and to force the collection of taxes. Winston Churchill, as responsible cabinet minister in the early years, saw Iraq as an experiment in high-technology colonial control. Though officials in London sometimes had qualms about the violence, colonial administrators on the ground like Gertrude Bell expressed enthusiasm for the power of the imperial military enterprise. "

    Well it makes a change for us to be blamed for everything rather than the Americans.

    Anyway, just one very simple question, if you despise the country where you live (England) why don't you emigrate to a more peace loving place like... Pakistan? Oh! I thought not. You probably don't get the same social benefits over there.

    The people who control British and American politics made there money from the slave trade and opium why are you suprised then they are evil. The truth is obvious tho most people have such weak brainwashed minds they would rather live under control in a bubble of delusion say the word conspiracy and not have to think about the issue

    We are not the ones who want to destroy Iraq and Iran. Our pathetic government just can't say 'no' to the Americans. Bush says jump and our lot say 'how high?'. Bush wants any country which has oil because if America controls all the oil, they control the world, which is what Bush wants. It is not the American people at fault (in case any read this and think it's another dig at them), this is purely down to Bush.

    No made Iran and Iraq go to war or persist in war for years. When we blame others for our problems we give up control of our own lives and nations.

    They don't want to destroy either country. They want to save these countries from the horrors of Islamic dictatorship, give freedom to the women, liberate the men and give people a proper share in the oil wealth............just like the shah tried to do. These countries are run by bloodthirsty anti jewish, anti western, anti women, anti christian and anti life, bearded madmen...It was the Brits and the Americans who got the oil out of the ground for them...using christian/jewish western technology..........If the brits or the yanks really wanted to destroy them they would nuke them until they glow in the dark.............

    The Sunnis and Shiites have been fighting each other for thousands of years. Why is it that suddenly it is either the British or the Americans who are causing it?
