We never actively went though, so doesn’t count. Here’s the article.Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
I’m struggling to think when we either invaded or were at war with Greenland, or Iceland for that matter.Posted 4 years ago
And I don’t think a squabble over fishing rights counts. And invaded, or were at war with Canada? Perhaps against the French in Quebec, but invaded? I guess it’s how loosely you define ‘invade’, if you include colonising another continent.wobbliscottMember
Just cos we’ve been at war I doesn’t mean we picked the fight and that it wasn’t a just fight. I think the Vikings gave as good as they got, the Americans technically kicked us out, as did the Canadians, the Argentinians definitely picked their fight with us. And Australia? I didn’t realise the Ashes was counted as war these days! And you can take a whole swathe of those countries out on account of WW1 and WW2. A bit of a distorted picture I think. Context is everything.Posted 4 years ago
It’s extremely loose. Since Greenland is now owned by Denmark, we must’ve hard a barney with them in the past.. apparently they got caught up in the Napoleonic wars on the other side. And I’m guessing most of South America is there because of the tension with the Spanish.Posted 4 years ago

Quite a lot of South America would probably be covered by raids/strategic attacks more than anything else.Posted 4 years ago
