EPIC BATTLE


Ah yes, Canada and Denmark's epic battle for Hans Island.

Hans Island is the smallest of three islands not far from Greenland's coast, and Canada and Denmark have been fighting over it for years.

War ships from both sides patrol the area, and when they encounter each other they...show their flags.
When the soldiers leave the ships they...take the other side's flag down and raise their own.
Sometimes they leave a bottle of whiskey too.

Quite possibly the tamest war ever, yet USA and Sweden have tried their best to make the sides hate each other. USA's media have had stories about Denmark "invading Canadian soil" and Swedish media had a few stories about it as well and later comedians called Danish politicians and pretended to be Canadian politicians.

So far it haven't really worked. :XD:

Why can't all wars go like that? The world should be a much better place.

This is the kind of War I approve. Nobody gets hurt, lots of one-ups-man-ship.
Each bottle of good whiskey left on island is drunk by next invader, who leaves if possible better quality whiskey.

He who controls the Spice...eh...The dog..eh....The Island..., controls the universe! Moahahahaha!

Seriously, With global warming and ice melting the path by the island could actually be a trade route. They're not fighting about the island, but the rights of the water around it.

To be fair, you forget the part where Canada just uses it for nuclear waste, and Denmark actually gives services to the island.
