Britain contained by recession, why don't we of late progress and invade some countries to bring some money?

British economy is suffering from deep recession these days, and we have severe lack of funding, and the severance rate is rising, why don't we just go and invade some well-to-do countries to get some money? like what we be doing in the golden days... why we stopped doing this? what's went wrong? I assume our army is strong enough to do so.. or is it?
Answers:
We only sent within a small force of ten thousend to Iraq/ Afganistan and they were underfunded !!

Because we couldnt really afford it.

So what makes you estimate we can afford it now knowing were contained by bad Eco.

i know what your saying but the world today would tack hammer the Uk to go down that route again. Source(s): The good behind the times Golden days :) Ha lol! :D LMAO! :D I think people are closely more ..."civilised" these days! :) I'd say there's more of a karma of the union disintegrating than expanding (reality). Don't get me wrong though I love Britain, I want them to "expand", it would be nice if they get Ireland back? not that they have greatly and most Irish people wouldn't want this and part of me wouldn't want it any, but it certainly would look like more of a solid nation on the map from a geographical point of landscape, instead of having one big island and a bit of another island! lol It would be cool if Britain invaded Germany and thus tore a part the EU, or if the UK claimed control of the undamaged EU! :D lol None of this will actually happen EVER, but Britain can dream! :) Source(s): I'm English! :) Like you other do, the only thing in a minute is that the rest of the world is stronger and wiser now, and British Empire fell long ago.
WHAT A STUPID QUESTION. HOW THE HELL DO YOU THINK THE
SECOND WORLD WAR STARTED. GET A LIFE.
