Badly Handled Territorial Pissing Matches

The Marmot has a couple of sad but funny posts about “stupid territorial pissing matches”: the latest flare-up over Dokdo/Takeshima in the East Sea/Japan Sea, and over Hans Island in the North Atlantic, with a few asides about the Great Turbot War between Canada and Spain in the mid-1990s, the Cod War between Iceland and the U.K. in the mid-1970s, the Aroostook (or Pork and Beans) “War” between New Brunswick and Maine in the 1830s, and similar disputes, with a lot of links.
