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:

Just you wait until one day someone DOESN'T leave a bottle of booze. Then the REAL war will start.

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

That one time when Sweden actually roots for Denmark during a war, and not a shot is fired.

I like this type of war. Nobody gets killed, and the "soldiers" get to show their loyalty to their respective countries at the same time. THIS, is what we should call "civilised". If everybody fights like that, the world would be such a peaceful 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.

That's a "war" I can get behind.
I actually knew about this... I think from back when I first read SATW... Though I definitely heard about it a few times since then.
Well, it IS a funny story :D
