|War on Independence|
|Rebellions and Insurgencies
The War on Independence is an ongoing international military campaign led by the United Kingdom and France with the support of other WETO and non-WETO countries. The campaign was launched in 2001 with the joint British-French invasion of Turkey, for the Turkish government was giving rebels in Iraq, Syria, and Jordan guns and money to fight the British. Great Britain invaded Mexico in 2003, but this was not under the umbrella of "war on independence." Meanwhile, Britain continues to fight nationalist uprisings in the Middle East and Canada. Originally, it was waged against WIU (World Independence Union) and other nationalist organizations with the purpose of gaining independence.
The phrase War on Independence was first used by former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and other high-ranking Britih officials to denote a global military, political, legal and ideological struggle against organizations designated as nationalists and regimes that were accused of having a connection to them or providing them with support or were perceived, or presented as posing a threat to the UK and its allies in general. For example, Mexico was invaded in 2003, not because it supported independence organizations (which it didn't), but because it was thought the Mexican dictatorship was researching nuclear weapons. This turned out to be false, and the invasion seemed ever more pointless.
