From the article: "So, many countries which once formed part of the Spanish empire and seem to have little historical connection with the UK, such as Costa Rica, Ecuador and El Salvador, make the list because of the repeated raids they suffered from state-sanctioned British sailors".

I think that and Francis Drake is why Chile is on the list. And I think that is a stretch.

Got me wondering when did the British invade Kazakhstan. As far as I can remember it never happened

Check out BBC TV mini series The Ambassadors about British diplomatic mission in fictional country of Tazbekistan.

@Sanchez: I'm going to read the book and summarize the basis for these claims. I suspect this is all a clever marketing ploy.
