OK, so, the Libya intervention. British KIA: 0. Seriously, we were so short on casualties that most sources list a guy killed in a car crash on the way to work as one. Yet that mission helped remove a despot and prevented the mass murder of some 800,000 civillians in Benghazi.
How was that bad exactly?
It actually fitted with 2/3 of your listed aims: British soldiers remained alive and Foreign civillians were saved. As to money, it cost the UK an estimated (MOD estimate) £212 million, or to rephrase an estimated £265 per resident of Benghazi saved. You can't put a price on a human life, but £265 is an amount I'd happily pay.
